On July 24, The American Cornerstone Institute filed an amicus brief with the US Supreme Court arguing that it’s time the American people took back our power from unelected Federal bureaucrats and the Courts that enable them.

We’re hopeful that the Court will take our advice and take back the American people’s power from the out of control bureaucracy.
