• “Nothing in the Constitution has given them (judges) a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them . . . But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional, and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also, in their spheres, would make the judiciary a despotic branch.” ~Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Abigail Adams, September 11, 1804)
