If the fate of a nation rests on a single supreme court nomination that can only mean the court has become too powerful and gone beyond the powers envisioned by our founders. The courts mission is to interpret law not act as a dictatorial body unrestrained by the legislature.

By what measure has our constitution given the court power to bus your children into other neighborhoods, allow abortion or deem homosexual marriage legal. The answer to that question is none, the court has seized that extra-constitutional power for itself and acts as a dictatorial body unrestrained by the will of the governed.

Cross out the word "judge" and replace it with Caesar or Fuhrer and the end has become the same, unelected government officials forcing themselves on an unwilling population. Your life and children have become subjects of social experimentation at the hands of activist judges who have ceded to themselves not only the power of judge, but usurp the role of jury and executioner as well.

At what point in our democracy do we apply the brakes to an errant court that has overstepped its constitutional boundary.
