Episode 44 - Supreme Court - Endgame

Whether the United States remains a republic or has evolved into a democracy is a subject of scholarly debate. Since the pivotal Bush vs. Gore case, some analysts suggest a gradual shift towards authoritarianism. The Supreme Court has played a significant role in this perceived shift by prioritizing federal authority over state rights, reminiscent of the centralization efforts during the Civil War era. The historical tension between state sovereignty and federal oversight has deep roots, with President Abraham Lincoln's assassination often attributed to his stance on state powers post-war. Historically, the U.S. functioned as a confederation where state citizenship preceded national identity. This structure was transformed to fortify the nation, arguably diminishing the individual's influence. Entities like the Federal Reserve oversee monetary policy, and the income tax system operates without explicit constitutional sanction. Cases like Trump vs. Andersen highlight ongoing debates about constitutional freedoms and the original intent of the nation's founders.
