The Supreme Court vs. the Constitution

Ben Shapiro - 1/12/2005

Why has the court consistently exceeded its powers to create prophylactic rules based only on its own, elitist value system, instead of protecting rights enumerated in the Constitution? Why have the justices subverted the rule of law by undermining that most fundamental of American rights -- the right to vote for policy-makers who will legislate -- in favor of rights that do not exist under the Constitution?

Ben Shapiro sums up the problem with America's courts in this rather sever denunciation of court abuse. He writes, 'as former Chief Justice Warren Burger once stated, "We're the Supreme Court, and we can do what we want"'. This is one quote I wish more Americans were aware of. Warren Burger is typical of the judicial arrogance that is undermining democracy in our nation.
