Kim Davis (Defiant Kentucky Clerk) v. Muhammad Ali (Defiant Kentucky Liberal Icon)

Kim Davis has been jailed for following the Kentucky constitution to which she took an oath to uphold. An appointed judge said she had no right to defy the Supreme Court’s ruling, a ruling that did not nullify the Kentucky constitution on the subject of same-sex marriage. Unfortunately, and something that is becoming all too familiar, the governor gave up Kentucky’s sovereign rights under the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment.

The court issued an opinion. Five of its members did not have the authority to make a universal law:

“The founders and framers delegated most powers of the general government to the legislature. It was done so intentionally, as one house was closely aligned with the interests of the people (The House of Representatives), while the other was representative of the sovereignty of the states (The Senate). When the courts act to create de-facto law rather than by rendering of opinion, they violate the intentional separation of powers doctrine used to diffuse powers not only between separate branches of the general government, but also the paradigm of the general government and the states. When a group of nine judges attempt to make law for a populace of 310 million and settle constitutional questions for all time, they are acting against the interests of the compact of the Constitution. Such a situation is demonstrative of an oligarchy, not a republic.”
