Restraining Judicial Activism
Whereas Americans once enjoyed the finest fruits of judicial integrity, we now speak with distaste at the many unpalatable decisions served by our robed officials. Popular and long-standing religious expressions are muzzled; criminals are released on technicalities; jury verdicts are deemed irrelevant; the will of the people is ignored. All of these travesties, and more, are handed down from judges who hold their offices for life – who often rule not on their own personal values and agendas – who have usurped power and become robed legislators.
In Restraining Judicial Activism, David Barton illustrates the current extremes of egregious judicial decisions and discusses the constitutional process of removing reprobate judges from office, using the means specifically designated by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. With concise clarity, Barton describes the historical perspective on removing overactive judges through impeachment, and aptly compares the current misconceptions on impeachable offenses with the Constitution's explicit provisions. Restraining Judicial Activism presents the reader a workable solution for restoring justice to the American courtroom.
