SCOTUS, Elites and Russian Public Initiative

The U.S. Supreme Court is comprised of elites, largely from Harvard, that should just make decisions among more or less settled social issues. The founders never intended the court to have an elite, non-democratic license to rule by decree when the court is packed with an elite cadre of collusionists as it is presently and was in 2015 when it decreed homosexual marriage on the nation in Obergefell v. Hodges. The founders were not pro-queer marriage. To say they were is a very substantial fiction.

The Supreme Court decided for itself to decide in favor of a minority to corrupt one of the world’s and nation’s oldest and basic social institutions- marriage, without popular support. Technically anyone could bring any sort of silly issue before the court that could decide in its favor and make it the law of the land. The Constitution was formed in a frontier society without content regarding innumerable contemporary issues. Hence the court can choose whatsoever whey it likes to creatively, yet that doesn’t mean it must.

SCOTUS should try to remain within the paradigm of democracy and allow the legislature and executive branch to make and execute the laws so far as it can. Where it should be very cautious is in making laws through the court itself that have no precedence in written or customary laws and that are not at all popular. It should allow the states to vote for their own establishments where they will and not compel all Americans to support issues popular in some states and unliked in others where no federal law exists.

A Supreme Court that is clearly inclined to rule by decree and force unpopular laws upon the nation is a court that should be legally hobbled. If the people wanted a dictatorship they could keep electing Democrats,, national socialists and Harvard grads.

Apparently Russia is working on an e-government and open-government to supplement the federal government and to input public ideas and try to be more attentive to public interests. The public initiative is a good idea if the results are public and if only registered voters that are verified sign in to vote on initiative suggested by the public. While they would have no legally binding consequence they would service to advise instead of biases opinion polls from corporations owned by the most wealthy. Russia public initiative description
