Founders' Daily Quote: 9 Sept 08

"In a society under the forms of which the stronger faction can readily unite and oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as in a state of nature."

--James Madison (Federalist No. 52, 8 February 1788); Reference: Madison, Federalist No. 52.

Boy, you aren't kidding either. I'd like to know why everyone seems to think that SCOTUS has right to make laws, to disregard laws, to overturn laws that are constitutionally sound, and why don't the other two houses and the executive branch stand up and do something? It is a mystery to me, too. They can only give opinions, not make law. They were not elected, therefore 9 people cannot dictate to 300,000,000 people what is lawful and how they should their lives. Remember, I did say CONSTITUTIONALLY sound.

We fought a war to remove the scourge of slavery. Many lost their lives, so whining. It is done. It is over. Blacks, whites, American Indians, and whatever else were here at the time all lost (except the blacks! Yes! Freedom!) something or someone. Can we just get back to being Americans? Thanks for letting me rant.
