Power Line – How Democrats and Frenchmen Think

July 9, 2005

You gave a quote listing the effct of the Supreme Court as:
– “long-term impact on the lift of society in general”
– “*At the very heart of American political life, the Court is the final
arbiter of all the great issues of U.S. society*” [emphasis yours]

About these statements you said:

“That wasn’t, of course, the role envisioned for the Court by the
Founders, but it certainly is the one favored by contemporary liberals”

Perhaps I’m one of the “contemporary liberals” that you cite, but I
always assumed these statements were essentially true. Could you please
clarify what you believe the role of the Supreme Court to be, in as
succinct a fashion?
