August 4th – Judicial Activism: What is it and what can be done about it?

Supreme Court building.Are you happy with the recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court? Many have been stunned by several of the court’s latest findings and argue the justices have become “activist” and are overstepping their Constitutional boundaries.

But what is “judicial activism?”

Here is the definition from USLegal.com

“Judicial activism is the view that the Supreme Court and other judges can and should creatively (re)interpret the texts of the Constitution and the laws in order to serve the judges’ own visions regarding the needs of contemporary society. Judicial activism believes that judges assume a role as independent policy makers or independent “trustees” on behalf of society that goes beyond their traditional role as interpreters of the Constitution and laws. The concept of judicial activism is the polar opposite of judicial restraint.”

Join the Clermont Tea Party, 7PMTuesday August 4th, at the Holiday Inn Eastgate (4501 Eastgate Blvd, Cincinnati, OH 45245) with special guests Pat Fischer, Chris Finney, and Maurice Thompson to discuss the topic of judicial activism – what it means and what citizens can do about it.

We look forward to seeing your there!

What is the “Central Committee” – Why you need to be on it.

Slide100The County Central Committee is the cornerstone of the Political parties. The Party system is designed to be a “Bottoms Up” organization. i.e. decisions are made at the low level (the precinct) and flow up, thru the County Exec committee, the State central Committee, the RNC. Unfortunately, because of the lack of diligence, this has flipped upside down, and both parties now seem to operate as a “Top Down” structure; everyone at the bottom gets […]
