Brutus warned us over 200 years ago that “Men [the Justices] placed in this situation will generally soon feel themselves independent of heaven itself.” Within a few decades after the Founders ratified the Constitution, the Supreme Court began to slowly and methodically “amend” the Constitution by rendering numerous decisions that ignored the Constitution's Original Meaning. At the Founding, the States surrendered to the new central government only a few of the powers to govern that the States had received from their people, for the purpose of having the federal government serve the States and their people. The Founders intended for most governing to occur at the State level - not the federal level.

Although Alexander Hamilton declared, in Federalist No. 78, that the duty of the Court is to serve as the “Faithful Guardians” of Constitution, the Court has failed to perform that duty. On one hand, the Court has refused to keep Congress within the boundaries established by the Founders. On the other hand, the Court has prohibited the States from exercising many of the powers that the people gave to their States - denying the people of each State the power to govern regarding many important issues.

“Unfaithful Guardians” reveals the history of how the Supreme Court has destroyed the Founders’ design for our Nation - a design of limited federal government.

Thomas Edison stated, The strength of the Constitution lies in the will of the people to defend it.  But, we can only defend the Constitution once we understand it.  Sadly, the Constitution is rarely taught in our schools and colleges today.  What is taught is what the Supreme Court believes the Constitution ought to mean and not what the Founders intended.  Unfaithful Guardians will present to you the meaning that the Founders intended and how the Supreme Court has distorted that meaning.  It is only when we truly understand the Original Meaning of the Constitution that we are able to defend it.  


“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.”  - James Madison, Federalist No. 45


“The right of each State to order and control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment exclusively is essential to the balance of power on which the perfection and endurance of our political fabric depends.” - Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address (1861)


“Constitutional Law may be defined for most practical purposes as the product of ‘constitutional judicial review,’ the power of judges, and ultimately the justices of the Supreme Court, to declare invalid and unenforceable the laws and acts of other officials of government on the ground that they are prohibited by the Constitution.  The central fact of contemporary constitutional law, however, is that it has very little to do with the Constitution.  Nearly all the Supreme Court’s ruling on unconstitutionality have little or no basis in, and are sometimes in direct violation of, the Constitution.” – Professor Lino Graglia
