Everyone is so focused on who the President picks for the Supreme Court because we, as a people, have abdicated too much responsibility to the third branch of government. We have allowed five black robed masters to conform the nation's morality to Harvard and Yale instead of letting the gradual, democratic processes that move in various directions chart our moral course. We have allowed courts to decide matters best left to elected officials. We have allowed Congress and the President to pass the buck to the Supreme Court to take care of issues. We have allowed judges to be viewed as arbiters of our future, not just the law. We have given too much importance to the Supreme Court and the founders of this nation would be dismayed.
