POSITION PAPER TWO STATEMENT
The United States Constitution is a document that specifies the powers of the different branches of the government of the United States. There are, however, gray areas. Questions sometimes arise about the legitimacy of the powers being exercised by the various branches. Judicial Review is a legitimate power held by the United States Supreme Court. Moreoever, it is best that they hold this power since they are appointed for a lifetime and are, therefore, immune to political pressure. In fact, without judicial review, the entire structure of the government of the United States might very well collapse. What limitations has the court imposed itself on the use of judicial review? Are these limitations sufficient? Why or why not?
