Something to seriously consider, with the two latest rulings. President Andrew Jackson was famous for ignoring a Supreme Court ruling. The court ruled against President Jackson’s desire to forcibly move the Cherokee nation to Oklahoma.
Jackson’s response? “The court made it’s ruling, but who commands the army? Let the court enforce it.”
Our system is based on a sense of trust. Let’s ask a hypothetical question. What if, a particular region sees what is happening as 1775 all over again. Thomas Jefferson said citizens should rebel against their government if it became oppressive.
If this is true, say for the sake of argument, said region decides it will not enforce the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. What then?
