Professor Barry P. McDonald was interviewed regarding his recent New York Times article, "Should the Supreme Court Matter So Much?" on the Ronn Owens Report, which was broadcast on KGO Radio.

Via KGO Radio:

Ronn talked with Pepperdine University law professor Barry McDonald on his New York Times op-ed article "Should the Supreme Court Matter So Much?" His answer to that question was a very well thought out “no!” McDonald points out that when the founders established our system of self-government, the issue of courts was covered in five sentences. Now, issues like gun control, abortion, same-sex marriage, and corporate ability to spend unlimited money in American elections are decided by unelected persons who have their job for life…and that is totally the opposite of what our founding fathers planned for.
