The Judicial Rebellion

We are witnessing a treasonous rebellion by leftist judges who are declaring the last election null and void.
At the core of these traitors' arguments is the belief that the people do not have the right to express their views through the electoral process.
Essentially, these courts are declaring that President Trump doesn't have the same authority as his predecessor and that the powers of the executive branch are constrained by what the judiciary thinks is good policy.
These judges assert that President Trump can't overrule the executive orders of his predecessor with his own executive orders. If that were the case, elections would be meaningless, since one president could effectively prevent the people from rejecting his position by voting for a candidate who disagreed with him.
We see this in the judge's ruling on DACA. Ignoring for a moment the fact that DACA was an unconstitutional usurpation of power by Obama, there is still a huge problem with a court effectively declaring that one president, Obama, can make edicts that other presidents can't change.
This is clearly not a claim by the court that some presidential rulings are infallible, dogmatic, and unchangeable, since we all know that if Bush had produced an executive order that violated the law by limiting legal immigration, the same judge would have ruled that Obama could overrule it.
Instead, what we're seeing is nothing less than a rebellion by judges who reject the idea that elections have consequences and believe they can impose their beliefs on the people. The judges are declaring that Democracy exists in the U.S. only to the extent that viewpoints that judges consider acceptable can result from an election.
It's a far cry from declaring that the Constitution limits certain actions by presidents to saying that the actions of presidents that the left likes have more legal weight than the actions of presidents that judges don't like do.
At the core of the #Resistance movement is the idea that America is more a tyranny than a representative republic. By saying elections are legitimate only so long as leftists approve of them, they are declaring that power flows not from the people, as declared by the Constitution, but from the unelected elites.
America cannot continue to exist as a free country if the ever changing opinions of leftists carry the same authority as the Constitution and the laws passed by the people's representatives in Congress.
Like all acts of open rebellion in America, these actions by judges are nothing less than a declaration that some people in America are worth less than others. This rebellion is the opposite of the American Revolution, which was waged to ensure that the people, not the aristocracy, held the reins of power and could have a major say in how their country was managed.
The reality is that when faced with a direct rejection of the principles upon which America is based, extreme measures are needed to stomp out the rebellion. In this case, judges who issue insane edicts must be impeached. It's time for the people to voice the truth that judges are not some "super" agents who override the authority of the people's representatives.
