After an unprecedented attack by President Obama on the U.S. Supreme Court, a federal judge asked the Justice Department to give a written explanation of its opinion of what the president was conveying to the justices as they decide the fate of ObamaCare. It appears that the judicial system is defending itself as a co-equal branch of the United States government.

This is absolutely appropriate since the president seems to feel that unelected judges have no right to interfere with the legislative and executive process. At least when they are his executive and legislative processes. This is but one of the many radical changes that the president wants to bring about to our nation. He basically wants the judicial system to be a rubber stamp for his ideological agenda. It will certainly be educational as well as fascinating to see who wins this mammoth struggle, and the implications will be significant for the future identity of our nation.

It seems that President Obama has forgotten that our system of government consists of three co-equal branches. The executive and legislative branch must be checked by the judicial branch in order to prevent the establishment of tyranny. He should return to his constitutional law duties, since he has apparently forgotten how our system works. The Founders of our nation were very cognizant of the fact that there is a natural tendency to consolidate power and take control. Hence they established a system of checks and balances. We should all be very thankful that such a system exists today. The Supreme Court justices hopefully will not be intimidated for fulfilling their constitutional duties.
