    The people, the Courts, the Congress seem to have accepted the Marbury ruling. The ruling is now part of America. Maybe someday computers will make the decisions?

    If that’s what they wanted, they should have political it in the Constitution. Regardless of what you say they wanted, that’s not how it is or how it’s ever been. And in the absence of legislative review of such rulings, as it is, I ask again... when the Supreme Court rules a law, or part of a law, is unconstitutional, which jurisdiction do you believe can still enforce it?

    And if the Courts wanted the power to nullify law that should have been in the Constitution. But it is not.

    The Executive Branch enforces all Federal Law. Answer: The Executive Branch. As I mentioned previously.....Andrew Jackson ignored the Supreme Court's ruling with impunity. It will happen again. The Courts are obviously necessary. If they want to legitimate power to nullify Law then amend the Constitution. Otherwise, the Courts themselves are making unconstitutional rulings

    The question was...

    Your answer is:

    The Executive Branch

    ... that doesn’t seem to answer the question I asked? :dunno:

    hasn't been an issue till now. Wait till RGB and one other dies, and Trump appoints 2 conservatives. Then the liberals will riot upon realizing they never should have given so much power to the Court!!
