What was the point of a Supreme Court then if not to evaluate legitimacy of laws? Who else would have the power to say “this is in flat conflict with the Constitution, ergo it must be eliminated from the body of laws”?
Sometimes a court must declare with clarity and formality that which was previously obvious and implied, because some idiots come to strange conclusions to the contrary.
The practice of early state governments was that state courts could declare state laws unconstitutional. The point of the supremacy provision of the federal Constitution was that it controlled over all other laws, including state law.
No it does not, and repeating the assertion won't make it come true.
Great article. HOWEVER, since State nullification is no longer practiced, and since the Fedgov seizes enough income to bribe the States into compliance, all we have left is judicial review.
We are at an impasse — amiably, and better informed, I trust — but at an impasse.
Me too. I stand with the patriots in the red states should it come to that. Until then, I will continue to pray for divine intervention and hope that the hand of God will strike the evil ones.
Thank you for such a cordial exchange. Even though we don't agree, I've enjoyed it immensely.
As have I.
So will I.
Yet we also must keep in mind that God helps those who help themselves. :-)
