Re: “RE: Gunning Down the Constitution—Kevin Gutzman Defends

Since we all know and acknowledge that the Constitution is a restrictive document that specifically limits the power and authority of the federal govt and that any power or authority not specifically granted to the federal govt is reserved to the states or the people then please show me where the power is granted by the Constitution to the judiciary to interpret the very document that limits its and the other coequal branches of govt ? You cant because it doesnt exist and nowhere in the Constitution will you find anything that even implies that authority.
SCOTUS is specifically tasked with ruling on the Constitutionality of laws created under the Constitution.. meaning that they are also under the Constitution and must use the Constitution as a ruler to measure the compliance of laws with the restrictions placed on them by the Constitution.
The whole concept of interpreting the Constitution by SCOTUS is legalese BS and doublespeak by lawyers. It doesnt exist but rather is a usurpation by govt to grab power it is restricted from having.
Imagine the founders creating a document to limit govts authority and power for the good of all and then giving the authority to redefine by interpretation that very document ! Ludicrous.
The concept you propose that the Bill of Rights are restrictions of govt power is correct and reinforced by the preamble..
"The Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution"
..however by removing their authority to interfere with them they are acknowledged as Rights by default and as such must be God Given since they exist naturally.
You cant have it both ways.
