Alarming indeed are the number of people, especially those holding elective office, who believe that the Constitution should be interpreted by a member of the judicial branch of government  and that their “opinion,” usually a split majority of one, immediately becomes the gospel according to government gods. We have witnessed this absurd concept recently with the decision on socialized medicine, known to many as Obamacare and Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent discoveries of facts about our Second Amendment, somewhere located in the recesses of his delusional mind, nowhere to be found in history.

I have both held and beheld unlimited power and of it I know but one thing: it drives men mad.” ~Alexander the Great

As I have mentioned several times in my writings and in our Constitution classes, missing from political discourse over the past few decades has been the thoughts and words of Thomas Jefferson. Somehow the man who wrote our Declaration of Independence and The Kentucky Resolution has lost his appeal to politicians, members of the judiciary and the population in general. Not a coincidence I can assure you has been our continued decline into a police state, a paradise for unconstitutional legislation, a third rate educational system and a country on the verge of financial ruin.

Jefferson, in his infinite wisdom, did not trust our Constitution in the hands of the judiciary. He had this to say on that subject:

“But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional, and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also, in their spheres, would make the judiciary a despotic branch.” ~Letter to Mrs. John Adams, Nov. 1804

One can almost understand why folks like Scalia and Roberts, who find mystical meanings in simple words and phrases, distance themselves as far as possible from Jefferson’s words. The problem is: most of our elected officials do so as well. Recently our elected member of the State Legislature said, “No law is unconstitutional until the Supreme Court says it is.” Hitler and Stalin would have loved this guy; and he calls himself a “conservative.” Darn good thing he is not a Democrat!

Many of our elected officials, doting on the words of judicial idiots, have participated in allowing our Constitution and Bill of Rights to become the opinion du jour of tyrants, twisted and formed into laws our Founders would not recognize or accept. Jefferson spoke to this as well:

“If [as the Federalists say] “the judiciary is the last resort in relation to the other departments of the government,” …, then indeed is our Constitution a complete felo de so. The Constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they may please… Independence can be trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. They are inherently independent of all but moral law …” ~ Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, Nov. 1819

Like our esteemed state representative, many other elected officials believe the word of judges to be reason enough to deprive individuals of their God given rights and property. Jefferson again was a true visionary:

“You seem to consider the judges the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges … and their power [are] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and are not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves … . When the legislative or executive functionaries act unconstitutionally, they are responsible to the people in their elective capacity. The exemption of the judges from that is quite dangerous enough. I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves.” ~ Letter to Mr. Jarvis, Sept, 1820

As mentioned earlier in this article, our country is on a one-way path to destruction because the of blind faith in government, all three branches, to be our surrogate parents has paved that path in order to speed up our destruction. Jefferson the visionary saw this coming as well. Again, we will not find anyone in government or politics using this quote anytime soon.

When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.”— Letter to C. Hammond, July 1821

Where are the voices of reason speaking out against the tyranny of what the majority of our Founders, especially the Red Head from Virginia, predicted would become of our country if we were not vigilant and protective of not only our freedoms and liberty but those of our posterity as well? Jefferson told us that was our duty.

“The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine our Constitution from a co-ordinate of a general and special government to a general supreme one alone. This will lay all things at their feet. … I will say, that “against this every man should raise his voice,” and, more, should uplift his arm …” ~ Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Sept. 1820

Judging by history, Jefferson was right and our current politicians, bureaucrats, prosecutors and members of law enforcement are wrong when they claim judges have the right to determine the meaning of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. But, not to worry, I’m sure arrangements are under way to have all oaths of office changed to uphold and defend the Supreme Court instead of the Constitution--- but it’s really not needed---our unconstitutional government is doing just fine without it and a new season of American Idol and college and pro football are here.
