ellisIn a recent interview with the Weekly Standard, Brian Ellis, who is GOP Rep. Justin Amash’s primary challenger, provided a statement that should put the final nail in the coffin of his own campaign.

Ellis told the Weekly Standard that Amash should stop voting against bills because he thinks they violate the Constitution. “If something is unconstitutional, we have a court system that looks at that,” Ellis said.

Ellis’ statement needs to be dissected in order to understand the strain of big-government neoconservativism he personifies.

First, it should be noted that the oath of office demands that federal representatives are obedient to the Constitution itself, and not to the Court.

By Ellis’ logic, African-Americans are property and not humans. Why? The Supreme Court said so in Dred Scott v. Sandford.

By Ellis’ logic, the federal government can force you into the insurance market. What will happen if you refuse to comply? You will be forced to pay a “fine.” Why? The Supreme Court said so in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius.

By Ellis’ logic, a farmer can’t grow wheat for himself to feed his family and his animals during times of economic hardship. Why? The Supreme Court said so in Wickard v. Filburn.

By Ellis’ logic, the federal government can take all police powers away from the states. Why? The Supreme Court said so in Champion v. Ames.

By Ellis’ logic, the federal government can control essentially every ditch of rainwater, machine and employee, regardless of lines of commerce. Why? The Supreme Court said so in United States v. Darby.

The list goes on and on. It is essential for Americans to realize that the Supreme Court is not the final arbiter of law in this Republic.

It is important to remember that the Court offers an opinion, not a decree of final arbitration. We can refer back to Federalist No. 78 and Madison’s Report of 1800 to recall that the Court ceases being the final arbiter when the Court has become party to an unchecked, unconstitutional government. This right belongs to the people and the states respectively.

By Ellis’ logic, five individuals can pervert and redefine the Constitution at any given moment depending on the political and economic climate of the year.

If Americans wish to understand why our federal government has become a creature of vast usurpation of delegated powers, they should turn their eyes toward politicians like Ellis.

Rather than uphold their oath to the Constitution, they unconstitutionally delegate such tasks to a Court which hasn’t acted within its own constitutionally delegated power since Chief Justice John Marshall purposefully, and knowingly, corrupted the Court with his 1803 ruling on Marbury v. Madison.

With Ellis perpetuating such logic throughout the GOP, supporters of limited government need beware of his campaign to unseat Amash, a true champion of limited government.
