Marbury vs. Madison
by Samuel McBurnett
The Legislative Branch
The Judicial Branch
Death of Congressional Autonomy
Hey Adolf, did you hear the news? The court now has the power of judicial review.
What? Do you mean that we can no longer adapt the Constitution to our own liking? Even though we are both members of Congress? How did such and idea come to pass?
After thorough review of the Constitution, the Supreme Court hereby declares that the power of judicial review hereby rests with the Supreme Court.
Oh, and by the way, Marbury was right but we don't have the power to offer a remedy. Oh well.
I knew this country of ours would finally get some sense, and find a way to monitor what elected leaders are doing. You never know what power can do to people.
