Most grade school kids learn about the importance of checks and balances between the three branches of government in their first day of civics class.
And for good reason – these checks and balances are vitally important for the stability of the federal government.
But now Democrats are looking to completely upend the Supreme Court as they try to destroy America’s institutions.
The importance of checks and balances between the three branches of government
Perhaps the most unique, fundamental, and important concept behind the United States Constitution is the idea of three co-equal branches of government, and their abilities to check and balance one another.
This prevents one branch of the federal government from becoming too powerful.
But if the Founding Fathers knew how lopsided the federal government was today, then they would be spinning in their graves.
Without a doubt, the executive branch wields enormous power, especially when you consider how massive and powerful the executive branch agencies such as the EPA, FBI, and IRS have become.
Arguably, the legislative branch also wields too much power, which can be evidenced by their daily kangaroo courts that never seem to accomplish anything.
The bottom line is that the federal government has become way too powerful.
The final branch, the Supreme Court, is now under fire from the Left for recent rulings that were well within their scope of power, and the Left has some conniving plans to undermine this power.
The Supreme Court is under attack from the radical Left
Ever since Donald Trump was announced the winner of the 2016 election, Democrats have been scheming on ways to undermine his authority.
This is especially true when it came to his Constitutional authority to appoint Supreme Court Justices.
And boy, did Donald Trump deliver for conservatives after installing three strong and battle tested conservative Justices to lifetime appointments in the Supreme Court.
This of course drove leftists insane, and ever since the Left has threatened the “nuclear option,” which is packing the Supreme Court.
By raising the amount of Justices from 9 to whatever the hell they decide, this could swing the balance of the Supreme Court back to liberals.
Fortunately, these threats were largely rejected by moderate Democrat Senators and President Joe Biden.
That is until the Supreme Court delivered their landmark Dobbs decision, which effectively overturned Roe v. Wade.
Despite the screeching from the far-left, nothing about this ruling was illegitimate or out of line.
In fact, the Supreme Court has overturned previous rulings on a number of occasions and most legal experts were not surprised whatsoever by this ruling.
This is not stopping the radical Left, who are outraged after losing their ability to slaughter unborn children on a whim.
In order to protect the current balance of the Supreme Court, Republicans have taken steps in the House to prevent court packing.
Just recently Rep. Dusty Johnson offered up a resolution that would do just that, only to have it immediately blocked by Democrats.
This proves that the Left is actively considering packing the courts, which should alarm every freedom loving American.
