How to protect State’s Rights? State Removal of Justices!   Leave a comment

When the 17th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was enacted the states lost their sovereignty. Other than repealing the 17th Amendment there does not seem to be any way to enforce the constitution’s protections of states rights. What would it take to bring back the concept of states rights when the Supreme Court of the United States of America no longer sees the constitution as a constraint to the federal government? I think that a constitutional amendment that gives states the right to remove Supreme Court Justice’s would be the answer to this quandary. It would work similar to a call for a constitutional convention in that it would take 2/3 of the states to vote for the removal. The president gets to appoint the Supreme Court Justices, the Senate gets to check those appointments, and the states get to decide if those justices are indeed protecting their interest in the contract that we call the Constitution of the United States of America. This should restore some balance of power in our government.
