Supreme Court

Original post made by Ted Rudow III, MA, Palo Alto High School, on Jul 6, 2012

The only way that the president can get a dictatorial control on the country is to get control of the Supreme Court. He can then tell them what he wants and what he doesn't want. He can have them declare any law that he doesn't like unconstitutional, because it's purely a matter of opinion, judicial opinion. They are absolutely ineffective because they cannot pass one single law against him. The Supreme Court will throw it out as unconstitutional. He can declare any law unconstitutional he doesn't like, so that they can't do anything unless they pass laws to suit him. They can override his veto with a two-thirds majority, but if they do, he can have it thrown out by the Supreme Court.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
