I agree that this is a tough question to answer, probably because I don’t agree with Hamilton’s statement. His statement may have been more true 250 years ago but I think today, we are struggling with the judiciary branch. I agree that it is influential, politicized, partisan. Our judges are for life, this can be dangerous. Hamilton stated that the judiciary branches only power is “judgement” but that feels like a heavy word today. In our community we have been focusing on the ACA, and talking to our representatives about keeping this law protected, protecting our healthcare. I know the ACA is not perfect, but what if the Supreme Court decides that it is unconstitutional? I think this is unlikely but what if? Issues like this don’t make me feel like this branch is less dangerous.
