Your participation in Hillsdale College’s National Survey on the United States Supreme Court is requested.
Your response will only take a few minutes, but the subject is crucial to the future of liberty and the separation of powers in America.
In an interview published in Imprimis, Hillsdale’s digest of liberty, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Clarence Thomas explained what he sees as his role on the nation’s highest court: “My job is to apply the Constitution.”
But progressives see the Court differently. They want activist judges to legislate from the bench.
Do you agree that the role of the Supreme Court is to apply the Constitution as it is written and NOT to make laws or advance a particular policy agenda?
Even worse, progressives dismayed by recent Supreme Court decisions want to “pack” the bench with additional justices to advance a preferred policy agenda.
As Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) put it in a Boston Globe op-ed: “To restore balance and integrity to a broken institution, Congress must expand the Supreme Court by four or more seats.”
What is your opinion about the Supreme Court’s role in our constitutional republic?
Please share your thoughts with me using the College’s National Survey on the United States Supreme Court right away.
Your response will help Hillsdale form effective strategies to educate millions of Americans about the importance of the Constitution to liberty—including the proper role of an independent judiciary that applies the Constitution instead of legislating from the bench.

And after you give your views, I hope you will consider supporting Hillsdale College with a tax-deductible gift.
The failure of too many of America’s schools to provide young people with a proper education in American history and government makes it easier for progressives to undermine the separation of powers at the heart of limited government.
I’m sure you agree that too many Americans do not understand the role of an independent judiciary in preserving our constitutional order.
That’s why Hillsdale College has expanded its educational outreach efforts on behalf of liberty nationwide, directly reaching and teaching millions of Americans in all 50 states—including yours!
These efforts counter the influence of anti-American ideology being taught in classrooms all across America.
Your support will help us to expand our educational outreach, including:
- Teaching millions of citizens nationwide through free online courses, such as “Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution” and “The U.S. Supreme Court.”
- Reaching over six million households and businesses nationwide with Imprimis, Hillsdale’s free digest of liberty—featuring issues such as “Clarence Thomas and the Lost Constitution.”
- Sending millions of pocket-size copies of America’s founding documents to citizens, teachers, and students in K-12 schools across America.
- Restoring excellence to K-12 education by launching and providing ongoing guidance to over 70 classical K-12 charter schools nationwide that offer a strong American history and civics curriculum.
We undertake our educational outreach efforts on behalf of liberty—as we do all of our work—without accepting a penny of government funding, not even indirectly in the form of federal or state student grants or loans.
That means all of our work—including reaching and teaching millions about America’s great heritage of liberty—depends entirely on the support of Americans like you, who understand the importance of education to liberty.
