The U.S. Supreme Court’s Culpability For The Decline And Fall Of The American Republic

Over the course of my lifetime, I’ve watched as hyper-politicized attorneys posing as impartial Supreme Court justices and lower court judges repeatedly substituted their personal policy preferences for the will of the democratic electorate.  Among their more egregious violations of their constitutional authority were rulings banning prayer in government schools, inventing a right to slaughter babies in the womb, and validating reverse discrimination through racial quotas.

More recently, the Roberts Court similarly abused its authority with its Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) ruling on June 28, 2012.  By a 5-4 vote, John Roberts and his co-conspirators proclaimed by fiat that the federal government could lawfully dictate the life and death healthcare choices of 320 million Americans.  This flagrantly-political, outcome-based ruling completed the fundamental transformation of the U.S. Constitution from a security pact among the sovereign states and their citizens into an instrument of surrender to an unconstrained, coercive federal government.

Clear evidence of our federal courts’ violations of the Constitution’s enumerated powers and separation of powers provisions was manifested a few years earlier when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissively responded “are you kidding?” when asked for the source of Congress’s authority to pass the Affordable Care Act.  With his deciding vote for Obamacare, the so-called “conservative” John Roberts answered Pelosi’s question by ruling, in essence, that “Congress don’t need no stinking constitutional authority!  ‘We say so’ is all the authority it needs to deny every citizens’ God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

By all appearances, June 28, 2012 was the day the rule of law died in America.  A post-mortem revealed that death had resulted from a thousand cuts inflicted by judicial assassins sworn to preserve and protect it.

The good news is that reports of the rule of law’s death were greatly exaggerated.  Liberty-loving citizens in ever greater numbers have succeeded in breathing life back into it.  We have done so by voicing our objections to being ruled by a gang of lawless, self-serving politicians, of unaccountable, social-engineering bureaucrats, and of  lifetime-tenured, black-robed frauds in Washington, D.C.

The bad news is these outlaws will never voluntarily relinquish their stolen powers and control over our homes, churches, schools, private businesses and other personal sanctuaries historically deemed off-limits to government.  For this reason, they must be non-violently disempowered by a grassroots movement of citizen CEOs (Constitution Enforcement Officers) dedicated to restoring the founding principle of limited government by resuscitating the rule of law in America.

Those of us who rise to this challenge must base our actions upon the principle that, by rendering null and void the SOLE source of their just powers (i.e. the U.S. Constitution, as written and ratified), our wannabe political masters have forfeited their legitimate authority over us.

Of one thing we can be certain.  Government of the people, by the people, for the people will surely perish from the earth if we do not force them back within their original, strict constitutional constraints.  Failure is not an option.  Not if we intend to bequeath to our descendants the blessings of liberty which we ourselves inherited from our worthy ancestors.  Only success will assure America’s survival for future generations as–in the words of Ronald Reagan–“a nation that has a government, not the other way around” (ref.
