Is it time for a March on the SCOTUS and the Judiciary and the Senate?
Free Republic | March 2, 2005 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 03/02/2005 1:24:42 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Is it time for a March on the SCOTUS and the Judiciary and the Senate?

Are you as fed up as I am over the bad decisions being handed down by the SCOTUS and throughout the judiciary? Are you tired of judicial activism? Are you tired of being ruled by the men in black robes? Is it time to remind the SCOTUS that We The People ARE the final arbiters of law and justice in this land?

Are you fed up with the weak-kneed Republican Senate? Are you ready to drop the nuclear option on the obstructionist Democrats? Are you fed up with Specter and the RINOs?

Is it time for us to rise up and march on Washington again? How many of you are willing to join me in another march to D.C. to straighten out these yahoos and remind them of who's in charge in this republic?

If they can do it in Lebanon, we can do it here!!

When did SCOTUS start making bad decisions, Jim?

:) I'm only kidding!

I think it's time to encourage governors to tell SCOTUS to stuff it over this ruling, and go ahead with their state-level perogatives. SCOTUS only has power when its rulings are heeded, as Andrew Jackson once pointed out.

So a teenager is not considered mentally and emotionally developed enough to be culpable for killing a man, but a teenager IS mentally and emotionally developed enough to have an abortion?

Slavery would have been declared a constitutional right if Justice Kennedy was around in the 19th century. After all, the national trend going back to the founding fathers was to own slaves...

I'd settle for reminding them that the U.S. Constitution is.

The problem is, SCOTUS is basically immune to public opinion. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing. We can protest at SCOTUS until we are blue in the face - but I doubt Sandra Day O'Connor would care.

Now, if governors told SCOTUS that their ruling was illegitimate and carried no influence on their state perogatives, now THAT would get the attention of SCOTUS.

Actually .. it's time to march on the Congress and force them to reign in this rogue court. According to Mark Levin, Congress has the authority to regulate the COURTS - why aren't they ..??

Then we can march on the Senate and tell them to get a grip - and forsake their inviations to the Hamptons next summer and STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION - for pity's sake!!

The Supreme Court shall find no flaw........Should be in there somewhere........

Yes. D.C. has nice weather in late April. That's when Congress returns from its Easter recess and when the Senate will likely have the first floor votes on judicial nominees.

Try living in New York where the Nine Nazgul are supplemented, and occasionally superceded by, the Seven Dwarves of the New York Court of Appeals.

Marching on the SCOTUS won't accomplish anything. They have lifetime tenure and couldn't care less what the people think of them.

The Senators on the other hand still have to answer to the people to some degree. They're the ones we really have to lean on. We need to let them know that if Bush's nominees don't get voted they'll get booted out of office just like Tom Daschle was. And I'm talking about both Democrats and fake Rerpublicans like Arlen Specter and his ilk.

Spring is just around the corner.

I say Senate first, the judiciary will only pay attention to us if it comes via action of our representatives.

I am certainly ready to join in.

I'm glad that Levin is being proactive in pointing out this responsibility of the congress. I can't wait to read his book. This is the first step that should be taken. I guess the big fear of the weak-kneed wing of the Republican party is that this course of action might provoke a constitutional crisis. Maybe that's exactly what is needed.

Good point! They pay more attention to INTERNATIONAL LAW than they do to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - which they are supposed to INTERPRET - NOT REWRITE.

I think that three of the nine Nazgul are not Nazgul, though one is very ill.

Scalia, Thomas, and Renquist; I do not see as "Nazgul"

"The problem is, SCOTUS is basically immune to public opinion."


But, unfortunately, according to Justice Kennedy, not to international opinion.

We need to march to remind the WIMP Republicans in the US Senate whom we elected through our work and money that they need to get off of their fat behinds and do what we elected them to do. Quit kowtowing to the left-wing fascist democrats and get on with the people's business. Get us some judges that support the Constitution and do their duties under the Constitution to limit the power of the court.

That's right - they whined about not having enough Senators - so we gave them 3 more and they're still whining .. I'm wondering if whining is a disease and they have now caught it.

I'd suggest including the HOR and the WH to your list.

I find it interesting when the judiciary tries to ORDER the legislative or executive branch to do or not do something. Under the principle of the seperation of powers, NEITHER branch is obligated to follow their ruling.

I don't think Americans know what hit them when the Black robed folk handed down that ruling! The terrorists are jumping for joy! It's a glorious ruling for them, hire teens as hit-man, kill as many innocent folk and spend the rest of your life at taxpayers expense in a prison! Free room and board, free schooling, free meals, no fees for using the gym...MAN! WHAT A LIFE!!

Its way past time - RINOs are to blame. Bush, Ford et.al. have put these POS on the bench or looked the other way when filthy liberals like Ruth Bader G. was put on there without any dissent. Hell she was a former pres of the ACLU - how much more biased could she be????? This is the issue along with the border that will not go away for the Republicans so they had better step up to the plate and start playing hardball or there is going to be a voting alternative which will win the votes from them - ever heard of the Conservative Party????
