I think doing a weekly discussion could be fun. I'll try and post a new one every Monday (hence the date I used in the thread title). If you have an idea for a weekly discussion topic, post it in the General Politics Forum
To get things started, Sean (CaveBear) brought this up... What is the most powerful branch of Government? When the topic was suggested: I immediately thought of this quote from Andrew Jackson regarding the case of Worcester v. Georgia
|In a popular quotation, President Andrew Jackson is supposed to have said: "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!". This derives from Jackson's consideration on the case in a letter to John Coffee, "...the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate," (that is, the Court's opinion was moot because it had no power to enforce its edict).|
So what is it? The Legislative, Executive or Judicial? Anyone wanna argue a curveball like the mainstream media?
