The proper role of the courts is to interpret the law, not to make the law. Over the past 200 years, however, the power of the judiciary has grown to the point that it now threatens the separation of powers between the branches. The power of the legislative branch to make our laws has been challenged most directly by the courts. We must now confront a crisis of governance created by our judiciary and, more specifically, by the Supreme Court, which have grasped powers they were never intended to possess. In the period since the New Deal era, the Supreme Court has become an almost unchallengeable, unreviewable super-legislature, most tragically illustrated in its unconstitutionally legislative rulings that have negatively impacted life, marriage, and religious liberty. Family Research Council will make every effort to advocate for constitutional originalist judges to be appointed to the federal judiciary.
