The current Supreme Court is shocking the left by ruling that we must obey the Constitution. The left is angry that the Supreme Court understands that the United States is a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy. The left has been attempting to transform the United States into a democracy for the last 100 years or more.
Recently the Supreme Court has upheld Federalism and has upheld a critical limitation and right. In the Dobbs ruling, the court said the Constitution does not protect the murder of children. It stated, and correctly so, that the Supreme Court does not have the Constitutional authority to make law. Thus, the court ruled that the question of killing babies must be decided by each state. The court was absolutely correct from the legal and constitutional standpoint, but that a civilized society has such a divide on the question of murdering children, speaks volumes about the moral deprivation of the society.
The Supreme Court also ruled correctly on what has become known as the establishment clause found in the First Amendment. The Federal government is denied the power to establish a national religion, even secularism or atheism, and was also denied the power to regulate the practice of religion. The court said that we as Americans have the right to pray on a football field and if others wish to join us they also have the right to do so.
We are yet awaiting a court ruling to determine if congress is going to be required to do its constitutional duty. Congress is the only branch of government with the authority to legislate or to create law. Congress has in many cases abdicated that duty. When Nancy Pelosi stated that the law must be passed so they and we could learn what was in it, Pelosi was saying that congress only passed an idea, not a law, and that the regulatory agencies would make the law.
Before the court is a case to learn if that practice is or is not constitutional. This case involves the EPA which has in many cases proclaimed itself as lawmaker, as investigator, as prosecutor, as defender, as judge, and as jury in cases dealing with the EPA. States have sued the EPA stating that the EPA is not congress and cannot make law. The technicality of the case asks if the EPA has the authority to regulate power plant emissions. The EPA claims it does, and the state says that any ruling the EPA would make in this situation would be the same as making law.
If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the states, it will clarify that only congress can make law. Agencies of the executive branch do not have the authority to create law, or to expand upon or contract the laws congress passes. Nancy Pelosi would know what the law was because it would be written in the law that congress passed, and not be made by the agencies.
This is a critical ruling. Will the Supreme Court again rule that the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land as written, or will the Supreme Court rule that we are now a democracy and the will of the majority or those in power has no limitations. It would seem that the Supreme Court Justices understand our Constitution and regard it as the Supreme Law of the Land.
