Courts Are Losing the People

We've been saying it for a long time:  the "rule of law" ain't what it used to be.

The latest Gallup poll shows that Americans' trust in the judiciary has fallen to an all-time low.

Trust in the judicial branch of government dropped eight points just in the last year, which saw major decisions including the constitutionalizing of homosexual "marriages."

It is a "significant" loss of trust, according to Gallup, with only 53 percent of Americans responding that they have "a great deal" or even just "a fair amount" of trust in the third branch of government....


...In 2013, five justices said that states have the right to define marriage,” Staver [of Liberty Counsel] explained.  “They said that three times.  The same five lawyers, two years later in 2015, said no, states do not have the right to define marriage.  Which is it?” Staver rhetorically asked.

That full-reverse can be nothing other than political.

We already have politicians, so who needs "courts"?
