The Supreme Court- Out Of Control

The Supreme Court once again yesterday, created law. This time they ruled that 16- 17 murderers couldn’t be given the death penalty because of their age. The justices were wrong in this ruling in more ways than one. The biggest one is they are once again legislating from the bench- and this is constitutionally wrong. They were never to create, legislate from the bench at all.

The Supreme Court is out of control, and our representatives in Congress just sit there like complete idiots and say – “they are the law of the land”. Excuse me; why do we elect Congressmen and Senators for? Just so they can sit up there and spend money and the court can decide if they are doing right? Impeachment proceeding should commence immediately. The court is out of control. They have lost sight of what their part in the government was.

It is coming back to haunt us for allowing such foolishness to go on for far to long now.
Taking prayer out of school- based on the fictionist Amendment of “Separation of Church and State”. There is no such Amendment my fellow Americans. There is an Amendment that states that Congress shall make no official religion in America. You can see what that Amendment say right here:
I - Freedom of Speech, Press, Religion and Petition
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Nowhere in this Amendment does it say “Separation of Church and State”. Where the court got that ruling was again legislating from the bench. The Warren court began these diabolical rulings by the Supreme Court by taking prayer out of public schools. Look where it has taken us from this lunatic ruling to what we have today.

Abortion on demand as woman right. This was not a law voted upon by the Congress, Senate and signed by the President. No this was a made up law enacted by the Supreme Court. Once again legislating from the bench. No elected officials held accountable for such law. Just one more liberal ruling by a court out of control. 30 plus million abortions have taken place since the ruling, and yet the court has audacity to rule that 16-17 year old murderers cannot get the death penalty? What common sense is in this? What accountability does this court have to the people in this ruling? Kill the unborn but save malicious murderers and rapist- for what?

Rulings like this was what forefathers feared very much. It was the very thing they wanted to prevent- which is why we have three branches of government. The Congressional, Executive and the Judiciary. But now it looks like this the judiciary, the judiciary and the judiciary. Because the Congress and Senate sit like idiots they are and let the court run over them. The President has tried in the past and present to tell the wrongs of this court but it falls on deaf ears. No the blame goes squarely on the American people and Congress for allowing this court this much POWER. We all know that absolute power corrupts.

The court has run amok with such rulings and no accountability has been held against it. They are not elected officials by the people. Slowly but surely the court is killing the Republic as we know it more and more everyday. Before long the court will be the soul branch of Power, with maybe a figurehead for President to make it look like they have someone in power beside themselves. Better yet they will even be able to hand pick their successors before long. This way they will not have to worry about any rulings being overturned due a small matter of the Constitution. They will just burn that document because it is in their way of ABSOLUTE POWER. You think that it could not happen. Just keep sitting idle and watch.

Where do we go now? What do we do? For one thing we must ensure that in some form or fashion the court must be held accountable to the people. The other thing that needs to happen is that the justices should not be allowed to serve lifetime appointments- some of them are so old and in ill health you have to wonder about their mental faculties as well. To serve on the highest court until you die is plain insanity. Again they have no accountability to electorate or even it appears to Congress about anything they do.

I am not a lawyer, but I can tell you this. This is not what our forefathers had in mind for the Supreme Court and its role. That is why we are in the mess we are today. Back when the court first started doing things like this is when Congress should have stepped in. Way back in that stupid ruling of “Separation of Church and State”- that is what has opened the Pandora’s box of evil in the Supreme Court. A court that is out of control now. They have proclaimed themselves as Gods and are the enlighten ones.

In closing I have no answers to resolve this quickly, except to encourage people to be extremely selective in the representation they elect. Are they Liberal? What do they think of the court legislating from the bench? Do you think that just maybe the time has come for either term limits on the court or some sort of age limit? What about accountability to the people they are ruling over? What kind of judge would be looking for on the courts? Do you believe the Constitution and the Bill of rights are exactly what they mean as they are written? And lastly but not least- Where is the clause of “Separation of Church and State”? For it seems that is where it all started. Them making up new Amendments and acting like Gods.

UPDATE: David Limbaugh has some really good remarks as well on his site about this ruling. With him being a lawyer, I find it refreshingly good reading from one who studies the law.
