No, they don't. There's still judicial review (see: Marbury v. Madison).


Life should be more like the commercials for top-shelf spirits.

Besides justice review the number 60 has yet to be officially reached yet too... Coleman is appealing to the minnisota state supreme court to overturn their april 12 decision making Franken the winner by 312 votes. Oh, and another reason Im not nervous is becuase the current democrat in charge isn't Nancy Pelosi, is Obama. If nothing else a person should try and have faith in his fiscal policies concerning political capital!

judicial review can overturn legislative and executive actions, but i would like to point out two things. The first is the lack of enforcement the judicial branch has, as shown by Jackson and the Cherokee (although i trust obama would never do something like this) and the second is how incredibly slow it is to get something to the supreme court, keep in mind the with all the appeals and other stuff it usually takes the court at least 3 years to address an issue (marbury vs madison was 3 years, the 13 year old girl that got strip searched by the principle has yet to have her case heard, should come out in june or july i believe, and she has already graduated)
As for the pelosi comment, that is why i am only moderately worried, keep in mind i lean to the right, and am extremely antilabor and pro business. I trust obama is a brilliant person, and although he wont to exactly what i wish he will benefit america (why i voted for him)
