Before we speak about “Judicial Activism.” Let me preface my remarks by saying that if you don’t have a Congressman with Balls you can’t get the job done.
What do I mean by that?
Well I mean that you have someone in Congress who will do the right thing even if it means that he can’t grow in the party.
Now I’m that type of guy. You may say that in principal I will stand firm like a rock.
Well Mr. Jefferson said that and I believe it.
Let’s say that I would have no problem writing up a bill of impeachment against any Federal Judge who did either of the following.
1) Violated his oath of office by not using the US Bill of Rights as a means of attaining judgment on a case.
2) Any judge who says that we should adopt some form of law from a foreign country or an international body should also be removed from office.
Now each and every member of the House of Representatives has the power of Impeachment. Each Congress critter can write up a bill of impeachment and submit it to the Judiciary Committee for review.
When this bill is heard by the Judiciary Committee they will decide if the crimes warrant impeachment. What would happen is that most of these Federal Judges who have violated their oath to the Bill of Rights will RESIGN rather than to face charges.
If they face charges and are convicted and then removed from office they will lose ALL their Federal Benefits.
You talk about a hammer hanging over their heads.
The voters need to make this happen.
