What are the implications for judicial review on American democracy?
Should any branch of government be able to review the actions and legislation of the others?
Is this good for democracy or does it concentrate too much power in one branch?

    All three branches have checks and balances of the other branches of government.

    The judicial branch decides whether laws are Constitutional.

    Sue,

    So if the judicial branch decides whether laws are Constitutional then why would it be good for democracy or why would it concentrate too much power in one branch? I have read the site that you gave me still can't understand why it would be good for democracy or why would it concentrate too much power in one branch.
