One response to “The NSA has broken the rules that break the rules, Ben Affleck chosen to play Batman & more today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)”
1) Public school civics courses teach that it is the role of the Supreme Court to decide on the constitutionality of laws. And historically it has played this role. However, no where does the Constitution authorize the Supreme Court to exercise this power and the framers did not intend it to play this role. This power is pure usurpation, invented out of whole cloth by Marshal in Marbury vs. Madison very early in the history of the republic.
Some means may be needed to make such decisions but history has demonstrated that allowing a part of the Federal government to do so has been an intolerable failure.
2) It is specious to argue that the Federal government must make criminal laws (eg. re abortion) uniform across the states because otherwise it would be anarchy. No. Such non-uniformity IS the American system.
