An answer for balance in the supreme court…
The founding fathers of this nation knew that eventually ‘we the people’ would mess up their plan for America. They knew that men and woman who rose to power representing us would end up leaning in different directions with respect to the constitution, and they knew that sooner or later a President would try and act like a King and unilaterally disregard the will of the majority of his citizens, so they put the final say in the hands of the supreme court.
Unfortunately as we have seen with the supreme courts split decision last week, even the supreme court leans politically left and right. They did not base there decision with regard to the Presidents authority to enact laws and regulations pertaining to immigration based on what is written in the constitution, but how they view his actions based on their political leanings.
The President, within two hours of the courts decision, said that he will ensure that “most illegal immigrants still won’t be deported despite the Supreme Court’s ruling”. He also spoke of , ‘delays for a solution to a broken system that has allowed an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants to arrive and settle here’. I do think the current system is broken, not only because of the weight of government bureaucracy, but because he has handcuffed those who want to enforce the immigration laws already on the books and is openly announcing that he will not deport those here illegally.
The supreme court was supposed to base all their decisions on the rule of law but it is obvious that personal leanings, (both liberal and conservative), have taken over this court of final say. These men and woman have now shrugged off their obligation and duty to rule totally unbiased and I believe I have a solution. No it isn’t a good one, because there is no way the federal government will let the States highest courts have the final say, but for now we can see as in the ruling last week it does work.
Keep the supreme court with only four justices
and insure that there is always
two conservative and two liberal justices on the bench.
We will no doubt continue to have split decisions thus
making the ruling of the lower court stand
then maybe ‘we the people’
will have a better chance
