The Supreme Power of Barack Obama
Barack Obama and the Supreme Court.
Supreme Court Justices interpret the U.S. Constitution. They are supposed to remain completely neutral, and when neutrality is absent, our rights and liberties as Americans are threatened.
The Sedition Act, passed and later repealed during WWI, shows what happens when the Supreme Court doesn’t do its job. This Act made it so that any person quoted against the government would be punished with a fine; an obvious violation of the First Amendment. The Judicial Branch failed to use the power of Judicial Review and deem the Sedition Act unconstitutional, and Americans paid the consequences.
One issue which Barack Obama hasn’t flip-flopped on (yet) is his desire to appoint “activist” justices to the Supreme Court to “represent minorities.” How can a racially biased Supreme Court neutrally interpret a racially unbiased document such as the Constitution?
Obama is now our Predisent, and liberals hold the majority in Congress. If the Executive and Legislative Branches have the same objectives, and the Judicial Branch doesn’t limit their power within Constitutional limits, then the term ‘republic’ will no longer describe America. President Obama and his Congress would wield undemocratic, unchallenged, and unethical power.
Barack Obama doesn’t necessarily want to represent minorities. He wants unconstitutional power.
