Firstly, the supreme court has far too much power when it comes to decisions and far too insignificant “checks” from the other branches of government. It is quite absurd that 9 supreme court justices, often unfortunately letting partisan agenda influence them, can make major decisions which can influence the citizen’s rights for years to come. As put by Larry Kramer, former dean of Stanford Law School and constitutional historian, “The idea that the justices have final say over the meaning of our Constitution- that once they have spoken, no matter what they say, our only recourse is the nearly impossible task of amending the Constitution or waiting for some of them to change their minds or die or retire – ought to offend anyone who believes in democratic government” (The New York Times).
