Trimming SCOTUS Authority   Leave a comment

How in the world did we end up with a Supreme Court that can rule tyranny is constitutional?

Examples?

  • Dred Scot
  • Plessy v. Ferguson
  • Affordable Care Act

Interestingly, the first two were later deemed unconstitutional by later courts, but we could have all have come to that conclusion easily enough without the SCOTUS telling us that. Clearly, keeping other human beings in slavery or in virtual slavery is unconstitutional.

So, since I’m throwing mud against a wall to see what sticks …

How about an Article V convention that proposes an amendment that requires that the Supreme Court base its decisions on the actual reading of the Constitution and their decisions can be overridden by state legislatures also operating on the actual reading of the Constitution?

What would be the outcome, do you think?
