What the "Right" Wants

Tom Delay’s war on federal judges is actually a war on our government. He threatens to impeach judges, his allies in Republican think-tanks are sponsoring academic research to discredit Marbury v. Madison (1803), and DeLay’s himself participated in this weekend’s “Justice Sunday” rally [“Right attacks power of Supreme Court” (8/15/05]. DeLay wants to create an American parliamentary system where the judiciary is subordinate to the legislature as it is in Great Britain. Are we ready to give up our independent judicial system?
