Congress, the president and the courts will never fix America’s problems – the problems they have created.

So what can be done if the government violates the very Constitution that defines it? What protections are available for the people?

Thomas Jefferson rejected judicial review as the final authority because he never trusted the courts. He never saw the wisdom of placing so much power in the hands of a few judges.
