From the source, “Secrets of the Constitution” (Upfront) There was a secret meeting in a state house of Philadelphia from 55 framers across the American nation to discuss of how they should create a stronger. From the solution of creating the constitution, there was still a heated debate of how they should apport the members of congress from different states. Many began to question on whether the new government will fail. Until Roger Sherman presented a “Great Compromise” that arguably saved the constitution. There was a concern about one subject of the supreme court. James Madison wrote that it was never in the constitution that the highest court could strike any law or executive actions that is deemed unconstitutional, that it has given them too much power.
Do you believe that the supreme court should have that much authority over the legislative and executive branch?
I believe that we should just leave it as it is because as there is many practices of the “judicial review”, it should not be interfered. The supreme court should not gain more power than it already is while not trying to get rid some of its power. Through the important court case of Marbury v. Madison in 1803, it ruled unprecedented that an act of congress was unconstitutional. Rulings are decided from majority vote of the justices, and it should be kept that way. For right now, the judicial review is the guards against tyranny and injustice and allows everyone in different branches have a voice.
