The people are above the Constitution and all three branches of the Federal Government. The idea that one of the Supreme Court has the right to determine what is and what is not Constitutional is utter nonsense.
The people themselves are the final arbiter of the Constitution and that power was transferred to our Congressional Representatives. It is the job of Congress, not the Supreme Court to determine the Constitutionality of a law. The Supreme Court is the arbiter of disputes between the legislative and executive branches of government.
Article III of the Constitution defines he role and responsibility of the Supreme Court, but does not authorize the court to determine what is and what is not Constitutional. This power was invented in 1803 when Chief Justice John Marshall introduced the principle of Judicial Review which gives the court power not authorized in the Constitution.
I guess it depends on which constitution we are talking about. We have the original Constitution for the United States of America where the people have enumerated rights protected there-under, and then we have the Constitution of the United States of America. The second is not really the law of the land but is discretionary in its application. Its nothing more than a by-law for the corporate govt. Its applications are merely advisory in nature and only called on when the need arises. The Supreme Court has operated to dismantle as many protections as possible in order to further subjugate the people to govts. absolute control. The big problem is that the people have been seduced to believe that the second constitution [we can shorten the term to Con of the United States of America] is the law of the land, much to their demise.
