Founding Father Alexander Hamilton announced to the nation during the ratification of the Constitution that, "[T]he judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. . . . [and] the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter." Yet today, our religious freedoms and so many others of our once inalienable rights are now regularly threatened by this "least dangerous" branch. This was not our Founding Fathers’ intent – a fact clearly revealed by an examination of early Supreme Court Justices and the values that guided their decisions. Discover the Constitution’s original intent for the courts in the American Heritage Series. America: this is your heritage!
