Respectfully I add this comment:
Newt SAYS he is "willing to use the Constitutional power our Framers designed for us to check the Judiciary."
He has yet to demonstrate that.
When he was Speaker of the House he never made a concrete move to do so.
Politicians say many things during their campaigns. If Newt becomes President I would like to see him act on these words but what are the odds?
Twenty years ago, judicial activism was barely on the radar, and then mostly in the hard-core liberal jurisdictions. Now that it has spread like kudzu, the political reality is much different. At least one of the candidates is talking about this problem.
Fixing the problem is, of course, another matter. It would require a major shake-up in the Senate and decade-long (minimum) political commitment within Congress to take back and hold what is theirs. The labors of Hercules seem insignificant by comparison.
