Some of you may think that this is a silly statement to make... But, the poltical doctrine question was the most abstract topic this semester for me in CON LAW I! Can anyone please give me examples as to the following steps to analyze the issue because otherwise, it all seems way to abstract to me... Thank you.
Textual Strand: Does the text or structure of the Constitution commit the matter to the un-reviewable discretion of another political branch?
Justiciable Discoverable & Manageable Standard in the Constitution: lack of justiciable standards for resolving the issue – i.e. standards for which the court, as a court, can decide the question.
Does this produce enforcement issues? Too controversial? Government speaking with more than one voice on a sensitive issue? Are there other political safeguards sufficient to deal with the issue?
