Judicial Choices
Judicial Choices Supreme Court conformations, much like everything else in politics and life, changed over the years. Conformations grew from insignificant and routine appointments to vital and painstakingly prolonged trials, because of the changes in the political parties and institutions. The parties found the Supreme Court to be a tool for increasing their power, which caused an increased interest in conformations. The change in the Senate to less hierarchical institution played part to the s

Constitutionalism 1. Constitutionalism: a Minimal and a Rich Sense In some minimal sense of the term, a constitution consists of a set of rules or norms creating, structuring and defining the limits of, government power or authority. Understood in this way, all states have constitutions and all states are constitutional states.

The Dred Scott Decision The Dred Scott decision of the Supreme Court in March 1857 was one of the major steps on the road to secession. Dred Scott was a slave who was taken to Missouri from Virginia and sold. His new master then moved to Illinois (a free state) for a while but soon moved back to Missouri. Upon his master's death, Scott claimed that since he had resided in a free state, he was consequentially a free man. The case eventually made it to the Supreme Court. As stated by Supreme Court

The First Ten by Alfred Steinberg I read 411 pages in The First Ten: The Founding Presidents and Their Administrations by Alfred Steinberg. This book gives an in-depth look at the first ten presidents of the United States of America. Because William Henry Harrison first became president in the election of 1840, I read only up to that point. The first eight presidents of the United States were among the best and brightest minds and political strategists in the early history of the United States,

In 1717, Bishop Hoadly told King George I, Whoever hath an absolute authority to interpret written or spoken laws; it is he who is truly the lawgiver to all intents and purposes and not the person who wrote or spoke them (Pollack, 153). Early sentiments similar these have blossomed in to a large scale debate over which branch of our government has the power to overturn laws that do not follow the foundations of our democratic system; the constitution. In this paper I will discuss the history
Marbury v Madison
Marbury v Madison
Marbury v. Madison The 1803 Marbury v. Madison case resulted in the most important Supreme Court decision in history. The court’s ruling established the power of judicial review, solidified the Constitutional system of checks and balances, strengthened the power of the federal government, and made the Judiciary an equal partner with the Legislative and Executive branches of government. In the Election of 1800, Thomas Jefferson and his anti-federalist Republican party defeated the incumbent John

“It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is . . .if a law be in opposition to the Constitution, . . .the court must determine which of these conflicting rules governs the case. That is the very essence of the Judicial Jury.” -Chief Justice John Marshall in his decision of Marbury vs. Madison “The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may time to time ordain and establ

Power of Judicial Review Marbury v. Madison, one of the first Supreme Court cases asserting the power of judicial review, is an effective argument for this power; however, it lacks direct textual basis for the decision. Marshall managed to get away with this deficiency because of the silence on many issues and the vague wording of the Constitution. During the early testing period when few precedents existed, there was much debate about fundamental issues concerning what was intended by the word

He was distantly related to Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, but they shared no similarities. The main differences between these two men were their opposing political beliefs. Thomas Jefferson believed in state sovereignty while John Marshall thought that there should be a strong centraliz

The present governmental system of the United States began with a Cons
The present governmental system of the United States began with a Constitution framework which grew and developed over time to meet the various needs of its citizens. When the young nation was trying to form a government, it was extremely difficult to try and meet the needs of its people. They decided that they should address and define the powers of Congress, which include several points that set it apart from the executive branch and the judicial branch. The Congress can levy taxes, including

THOMAS JEFFERSON 1743-1826, intellectual, statesman, and third president of the United States. Although Jefferson served as governor of Virginia, minister to France, secretary of state, vice president, and president, he is remembered in history less for the offices he held than for what he stood for: his belief in the natural rights of man as he expressed them in the Declaration of Independence and his faith in the people's ability to govern themselves. He left an impact on his times equaled by

Is The Unites States Political System A Legitimate Democracy? In any system which claims to be democratic, a question of its legitimacy remains.
