Thomas Jefferson with his insight on the Supreme Court

“[T]he opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not … would make the judiciary a despotic branch. … [T]he germ of dissolution of our federal government is … the federal Judiciary … working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped. … They are construing our constitution from a co-ordination of a general and special government to a general and supreme one alone.” –Thomas Jefferson
