Newt Gingrich says he'd defy Supreme Court rulings he opposed
UPDATE: Newt ups the stakes against activist Federal Judges, here.
Here is a good White Paper about the issue of Judicial Review, its origins and the Founders intent.
Newt has declared that he'd simply ignore Supreme Court rulings that he found unconstitutional. I have no problem with that...
He also suggested the possibility of abolishing some Federal Courts, to be rid of activist judges. I have no problem with that...
He's a very well-read politician. He may be the most historically informed candidate on the stage. He's smart. I have no problem with that...
He believes in American Empire. I have a problem with that.
He also believes that you and I do not have the same Right to dismiss the unconstitutional rulings of the Supreme Court as would he as President. I have a problem with that.
Here is the story.
