Who gets to decide what is unconstitutional?
An objection was raised to my calling the Obamacare legislation “unconstitutional”. The statement was made that the Supreme Court decides constitutionality.
This is part of the failure of the education system in this country. While it is technically true, in a legal sense, that the Supreme Court is the arbiter of Constitution through the process of judicial review that has evolved, the Constitution is ultimately the social compact amongst all the citizens of this nation, and each free citizen stands as a watchguard over it. I don’t delegate my right to think about laws or constitutionality to the Supreme Court.
