Congress or the Supreme Court: Which Shall Rule America?

By Egbert Ray Nichols | Go to book overview

HAS CONGRESS ABDICATED?*

Hon. JAMES W. MOTT, of Oregon

The life of the United States as a nation began and has continued under the particular form of government which we now have. It is a form of government which obtains nowhere else on earth. Although it is less than 150 years old, it has endured longer without change in form than any other government in the world. Under it the people of the United States have grown to be the richest, the most powerful, the freest and the most secure of all people of the earth. If there are those who have been inclined to doubt this during the recent years of the depression the most unfortunate of them need only to compare their lot with that of the people of other countries during the same period.

Under our form of government the people themselves, who are the real rulers and from whom all governmental authority is derived, have always been able to meet and solve every problem and every crisis that has risen in our Nation's life. They will continue to do this, in my opinion, so long as they maintain the form of government which has enabled them to do it in the past, and they will solve our present problems if only they will not depart from that theory and that system of government which for 150 years has been distinctly and uniquely their own.
