"When most people think of laws today, they think of legislation passed by Congress. Yet, the primary source of law that governs society today developed from common law and court cases. Today, case law is secondary to statutory law set down by federal and state legislators. As a result, the United States is burdened with a massive amount of unnecessary legislation."

Deterioration of the Legal System

When most people think of laws today, they think of legislation passed by Congress. Yet, the primary source of law that governs society today developed from common law. In a common law legal system, laws are developed by judges through decisions of courts and similar tribunals, rather than by legislation. A majority of the rules of contract law, tort law, property law, and criminal law evolved from common law, while legislation served to simply codify decisions or fill in areas not covered by case law.

"The Common Law Advantage"
"Without question, the U.S. legal system, from the structure and operations of the judicial branch to the governing laws of the nation, was founded in the common law legal tradition. Americans owe much of the economic prosperity they've enjoyed to this fact."

The Common Law Advantage

Without question, the U.S. legal system, from the structure and operations of the judicial branch to the governing laws of the nation, was founded in the common law legal tradition. Common law, for those unfamiliar with the concept, is law that develops organically over time and is based on the accepted customs and shared values of a society. More specific to its history, common law was developed in England as it emerged from the Middle Ages, where the legal systems of the disparate regions were united by royal decrees and the decisions of judges based not on the wisdom of the given monarch or judge, but on previous decisions made in other legal cases.

As His ACA Implodes, Obama Makes It Up—Illegally

The patchwork quilt that is ObamaCare remains a work in progress, with recent news that President Obama once again has extended the employer mandate deadline for certain businesses, this time pushing the enforcement date comfortably beyond the next election cycle. The latest delay has created heartburn even among Democrat supporters of the health care law. But President Obama's regulatory rollercoaster is indicative of a larger problem in Washington: the emergence of the administrative state, with the government increasingly becoming a third party to what used to be private transactions.

Is The Judiciary Finding Its Voice?

In several recents decisions, and active cases, the Judicial Branch appears to be coming to its collective senses and restraining the unconstitutional expansion of government's already unsustainable power. Whether it's the NSA's invasion of our privacy, the disregard for religious liberty under Obamacare, or the $800 billion tax increase levied by the IRS, judges seem to be saying enough is enough.
