    "And that the members of the Supreme court, when acting as patriots, are charged to defer to such actions."

    If the President wants to go ahead and break the law (like Jackson did after Cherokee Nation), fine.  But the Supreme Court shouldn't be complicit and just authorize the action to support the president.  If the president declared martial law out of necessity, there's nothing the Supreme Court could do to stop him if he's not inclined to listen to their ruling.  That doesn't mean they should just kowtow to him and declare his actions legal when they're not.
