Constitution land

The virtual amusement park for people who love the US CONSTITUTION!

Separation of Powers Land

For over two centuries the executive, legislative and executive branches of government have danced a delicate ballet.  At times, one branch has intentionally or inadvertently stepped on the ballet shoes of another branch of government (ok...I'll stop the cheesy analogy). 

Coming soon to Constitutionland is this whole world dedicated to the balance between the branches of government and the Supreme Court's role in it.  To help understand the separate powers between the federal government and the states, enjoy the DORMANT COMMERCE CLAUSE...a lesson on how the mere existence of the Constitution impacted the powers of the states.  BAKER v. CARR: POLITICS AS USUAL will examine the Supreme Court's foray into what some, including Justice Felix Frankfurter, consider political questions.  Speaking of Justice Frankfurter, you will see him walking around Separation of Powers Land, talking above anyone who doesn't want to listen to him about the direction the Supreme Court has taken in recent years.  Also, look for Mr. Check and Balance. 

Thrill seekers will enjoy the TIPPING SCALE OF JUSTICE RIDE...a swinging ride aboard a giant scale. Ride the CHECK AND BALANCE BUMPER CARS and be a part of the crashing conflict of the three branches of government. You may like sliding down the JUSTICIABILITY SLIDES where each ride is different, depending on which issue of justifiability you choose.
