Five Supreme Court Justices have imposed their ‘will’ on millions of voters. The Court’s decision in the marriage case directly overrides the popular vote of 32 states which put traditional marriage provisions into their state constitutions and laws. Five justices have imposed their will on millions of voters.
Why do we do this? Why do we allow unelected judges to make political decisions—including many of the most important decisions of our era? Abortion and now same-sex marriage have both ripped our country apart. On both of these issues, if it had not been for Supreme Court intervention, the law would vary from state to state as the people of the state desired.
If we want to preserve American self-government, we must impose additional restrictions on the power of the Supreme Court. Checks and balances need to be real, not merely theoretical.
The only way these kind of changes can be made is through an Article V Convention of States. The Founders told us that there would come a day when the federal government would abuse its power. When that day arose, the States needed the ability to rein in the abuse of federal power by constitutional means.
Michael Farris is a constitutional lawyer, head of the Convention of States project and is widely known for his leadership on homeschooling, religious freedom, and the preservation of American sovereignty, and serves as Chancellor of Patrick Henry College and Chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).
