Congress Must Deal With Activist Judges

The new Congress taking office in January was elected because the American people think we've been going in the wrong direction and they want our country to make a right turn. One of the problems Congress should address that has not had much publicity is the problem that supremacist judges have turned the judiciary into the most powerful branch of government, presuming to decide vital controversies that should be decided by our elected representatives. In the Constitution, our Founding Fathers planned for the judiciary to be the weakest of the three branches of government, and they gave Congress the constitutional power to define and limit the jurisdiction of federal judges. That means Congress can decide what kinds of cases the federal courts may take and may not take.

Congress should move immediately to limit the jurisdiction of federal courts in all those areas where we don't trust them and where supremacist judges have handed down bad decisions, such as on the Pledge of Allegiance, the Ten Commandments, the definition of marriage, the Boy Scouts, and the right of parents (not the “village”) over the care and upbringing of their own children, including those who attend public schools and those whose parents are divorced.

Barack Obama will be President for another two years, and he is likely to nominate some liberal activist, supremacist judges to the federal courts. The Senators must be ready to fight these battles, and grassroots Americans and Tea Partiers must be ready to back them up if they vote No on bad judges. That's why I urge you to gather in your neighbors' homes to have Study Groups or House Meetings in order to learn more about the damage that supremacist judges have been doing to our country.
