Losing our rights
Our government is made up of three branches with equal but separate authority. This is how it must be for us (the citizens) of this great land to enjoy the privileges and the rights that the Constitution grants us. Government intervention in the Bill of Rights is not welcome.
It seems to me that all three branches of government have done their best to intervene illegally with the Bill of Rights.
The president has modified each bill that he has signed into law if he did not approve of its content. This is legislating from the Oval Office.
Meanwhile, the judiciary has been flagrantly legislating from the bench. Since there are more of them, they have practically violated the entire Bill of Rights.
The Congress’s hand in all of this has been to stand by and do nothing to prevent such violations. Our forefathers had the foresight to give Congress authority to prevent this illegal activity under Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution. They chose to concentrate on more trivial matters.
The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Since nothing has been proposed to change it, I feel that opinions like “have Congresstakemeasurestoprotectpropertyrights” arenotnecessary.TheConstitutionstillstands to protect all rights as nothing has been done to repeal it. Pronouncements by any of the judiciary cannot overrule the supreme law. Dean L. Carter Walterboro, South Carolina
