Should issues be proven to be constitutional BEFORE they reach the voter ballot?


It seems that the voice of the people don't mean much anymore. We vote yea or nay on issues, then many times the result is appealed as unconstitutional. Maybe these issues should go before the Supreme Court before it goes on a ballot instead of people voting , then finding out that trip to the booth meant nothing.

    I'd like to add, there are too many micro-analyzing attorneys and only 1 court of 9 justices that are supposed to comprehend a constitution the size of a library.

    So, state governments are putting things on ballots, incurring huge expense, dragging out millions of voters, then taking the result and tossing it to Washington to see what happens? Sounds pretty shoddy to me.

    U R assuming that the supreme court is always right. they certainly were not in deciding corporations have the same rights as individuals, (except when it comes to paying taxes).

    drifting?or drowning? N.D. just past a blanket law banning all abortions & contraception use. The federal law (roe vs wade) insures the woman a right of choice? states overriding federal laws?
