Judicial Review? No. Nullification


“Acts of congress, to be binding, must be made pursuant to the constitution; otherwise they are not laws, but a mere nullity.” -St. George Tucker

“There is no danger I apprehend so much as the consolidation of our government by the noiseless, and therefore unalarming instrumentality of the Supreme Court.” -Thomas Jefferson

As a pro-life Jeffersonian, I am constantly frustrated by the endless line of pro-life activists who talk about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.[1] There are multiple reasons this irks me. For one thing, the Supreme Court will never overturn Roe because its members are dedicated to the preservation of precedent. Add on top of that the absurd kangaroo courts that Senate confirmation hearings have become, with their character assassinations and incessant prattling about the vital importance of Roe, and it’s clear that the potential Justices are being reminded not to tread on that particular landmine if they wish to be confirmed. The brutal character assassination of Robert Bork is ample evidence of this, as are the farcical witch-hunts against Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh.

  1. 80% of the laws on the books in this country are direct proveable violations of the Constitution. So effing what... Try ignoring those
    laws. Your ass will be in jail so fast you head will spin. Ignoring
    unconstitutional laws isn't an option and expecting those in power to
    respect your rights is just as much a fantasy. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for, die for and most importantly KILL FOR. Same goes with the option of ignoring evil HAVE to kill the people who make those laws AND the people that are tasked with enforcing them. Nothing else will work.

    1. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for, die for and most importantly KILL FOR.

      Seems so these days.
