    The very first words of the constitution after the preamble are

    All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the united states

    Writing laws and repealing laws are legislative powers and yet federal judges are constantly declaring laws unconstitutional and repealing them and sometimes even writing a new law in its place!

    Millions of examples but worst of all is when in 1982 the Supreme court repealed laws that banned illegals from using our public schools. They then wrote a new law saying taxpayers have to give the illegals free k-12. Plyler v Doe.

    Of course, there is nothing in the constitution about education or rights of illegals. The court took their usual bribes and wrote a new law.

    The far right reactionaries with their radical anti-American agenda have never read Article III.

    They forget we are a Republic not a Democracy.

    The Supreme Court has no authority to declare any law unconstitutional. The Court attempted to give itself that power in the Case Marbury vs Madison.

    The authority for this type of judicial review must be granted by the we the people. We have never done so. The Constitution gives the Court no such authority. Look it up. :)

    SCOTUS obviously disagrees with you, and that is all that matters.
