"And it proves, in the last place, that liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would have everything to fear from its union with either of the other departments."
Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
Federalist No. 78, 1788

This would rate an LOL if it wasn't so sad. Stare Decisis alone is a uniquely judicial killer of liberty, inalienable rights, individual sovereignty, etc. Combining with other departments, makes the tyranny that much harder to eliminate.

    Judge-made verbal traps, hold the government captive, immunities where there should be none, allow for corruption to thrive in America. Socialist/communist sympathizers church and state vote in that which they believe, plotting the eventual total overthrow of a once freed people. Sheep no more, WWG1WGA to MAGA to KAG

    When the democrats couldn't get their way in the congress they would go to the Earl Warren and Warren Burger Supreme Courts and get them to issue Court Orders that had to be obeyed like laws.  The Supreme Court ruled as Dictator from the 1950's through the 1970's in this way.
