    Repeal Article III entirely along with every Amendment after the Bill of Rights.

    How is getting rid of the judicial branch going to help anything?

    Because they basically laid claim to the status of ultimate arbiter over and ultimate "interpreter" of the Constitution, in Marbury v. Madison.

    Both Madison (Federalist) and Jefferson (Anti-federalist) agreed that the decision was a total power grab by the judiciary over the republic.

    As far as the BoR is concerned, I'd be all for dropping every article after #13.

    I don't know there, man. I mean, sure, the courts have gone nuts for only the lord knows how long, but I don't know if I'd totally vilify judicial review, either...

    Review is one thing, but making up law out of whole cloth at one end (Miranda), then refusing to enforce clear and unambiguous language on the other (Kelo), is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

    Then there's the issue of fully informed juries........

    Let's just revise the Articles of Confederation a bit and go back to them.

    Yup no women and no untermenchen allowed to vote, voting age back to 21 and of course the best part I imagine will be the return to slavery. No more courts to worry about crime either, I guess we just shoot people we think deserve it?
