The Supreme Court decides the constitutionality of laws. This is completely traditional. The constitution itself does not give this role to the supreme court. Read the constitution. This is not a document that was created to be interpreted by legal scholars.
Legal scholars interpreting the constitution is a political outcome that has evolved so that politically powerful people are not absolutely bound by constitutional limitations on their activities.
What we have with the supreme court is an ongoing system of rewriting the constitution so as to satisfy. the preference of the group that hold the balance of political power at a given time.
A euphemism free look at the Supreme Court and our legal system is all that it is necessary to see this.
Euphemism Mountain is a Curbside Jimmy Favorite. It is about life as Americans insist it is.
