I don't know too much about them. Are they a successor movement to the Federalist party?
No there like a combination of conservative and libertarian lawyers of originalist’s, constitutionalist and the like to bring the judiciary back to the right. A good example is that a vast majority of trumps Supreme Court picks are from the society.
The Supreme Court is too powerful in general in my opinion. While picking constitutionalist nominees is a great victory in the short term, it can essentially be hijacked anytime in the long term without real reform.
Can you name a few. Curious, because I was thinking we add to the judiciary a council of people(29) which are look for breaking of states rights and internal state disregard for the constitution. although I habe problems with this since I was thinking the only people that can vote to replace members when they die are people already in the council. although one of it powers is to make sure neither of the 3 branches get to powerful.
@Lukdnuke I can't recall any one nominee who I would consider a true hardcore constitutionalist. Kavanaugh is probably the closest thing right now in the Supreme Court. I personally believe in setting term limits for these judges, and especially limiting the powers of the associate judges to actually defending the constitution like freedom of speech and now rarely settling disputes between states. This would be a difference from now where the Judicial Branch essentially creates de facto laws on issues Congress is unwilling or unable to.
@Silverknight I agree the Supreme Court has way too much power for unelected officials and out even know if you can Impeach a judge from the Supreme Court you guys know
