Description
Over the last few decades, the Supreme Court and the federal appellate courts have undergone a dramatic shift to the right, the result of a determined effort by right-wing lawmakers and presidents to reinterpret the Constitution by reshaping the judiciary, posits Erwin Chemerinsky. These activist justices have narrowed the scope of the Constitution, denying its protections to millions of Americans, with minorities and the poor bearing the brunt of it. Nowhere has the conservative assault on the Constitution been more visible or more successful than in redefining the role of the president; from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush, conservatives have sought to significantly increase presidential power, resulting in an erosion of our civil rights. Chemerinsky says that we must distinguish between the personal prejudices of these lawmakers and the actual intent of the Constitution if we are to reclaim the document that stands for freedom and equality.
