Courts have too much power over our future

The courts have too much power, in my opinion. Marbury vs. Madison 1803 - the Supreme Court establishes the right of the courts to determine the Constitutionality of the actions of the other two branches of government. A court granting total power to other courts. The courts determine everything, so where is our freedom? Where is separation of powers?

The Supreme Court needs to be scrapped in my opinion. The judges do not have to answer to the voters, they have immense power. Their verdicts are not handed down based on whether they really know what our founders intended, it is based on a vote. It does not matter if one justice knows the Constitution better than five other justices. If he is outvoted that is the law.

The Supreme Courts horrific verdict on healthcare strengthens my dislike for this branch of government. Just like the sheriff's race here in Upshur County.The Republican party voted not to put Mr. Taylor on their ticket. Taylor took it to court and lost. Why should the courts control the internal affairs of a political party? If the GOP voted not to put Taylor on their ticket that should have been the end of it. But courts seem to have the last say on everything. I believe courts have killed liberty.

I will never submit to their horrible healthcare tyranny. And I think it's time we Americans took a good look at these all-powerful entities, the courts.
