For laughs people are asked questions about different aspects of our nations history and our government. Even college students who are protesting for their rights have no idea what lead to the American Revolution, how many branches of government we have and what are they, what was the document called that declared our independence, how many justices does the Constitution say must sit on the Supreme Court, how many justices sit on the court, who are the justices, what is their constitutional function, and what is their assumed function.
A majority of likely voters were unable to correctly name just one Supreme Court justice, according to a recent poll.
The results, according to the survey:
52 percent of voters overall were unable to name one High Court justice.
48 percent of voters overall said they could or correctly named a justice.
59 percent of voters identifying as conservatives could not name a justice.
57 percent of voters identifying as liberals correctly named a justice.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the most recognizable justice; she was correctly identified by 25 percent of voters, according to the survey.
The Judicial Branch has become the most powerful branch of government, even though the framers intended it to be the weakest. That is correct, the branches were never intended to be equal; independent yes but not equal. The Judicial Branch has usurped the legislative function that was given only to congress or the legislative branch. Americans mistakenly believe that rulings by the court are laws. According to the Constitution, the court can only render rulings. The court has usurped the executive branches powers by claiming the orders given by the executive are not legal because the judges also play the role of God claiming they understand the intent of the executive, ignoring the words, and override the executive. District judges are now playing the role of God as well.
The Judicial Branch of government, with the Supreme Court having the final say are destroying the very document they were supposed to protect. We are quickly becoming a Judicial Tyranny with unelected judges becoming the tyrant. And Americans can not even identify these unelected individuals. The ironic part of this story is the most recognized Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, has stated that international law must be considered when making rulings and can supersede the Constitution. She also claims the Constitution is a living document, so it really does not mean what it says. The words are meaningless, so we can have the Constitution mean whatever we want. The Justices have done that and have deemed the Judicial branch of government should be the most important branch, making law, administering the law, and ruling on the law.
Americans do not deem this to be important. Our nation is on “The Road To Tyranny” and Americans are to busy with other aspects of their lives to take the time to vote wisely, voting for freedom.
