International court lacks checks and balances

Anthony Sanders is absolutely right when he warns of the possible ramifications of U.S. submission to an international court in “International court will restrict liberties,” (Sept. 26). Such a court has no checks and balances (as U.S. courts do), as well as no limits of power. There are no juries and no appeals courts. In addition, as Sanders points out, its standards are ambiguous, and the possibility of individuals to use the court as a power-grabbing means is unlimited. Many American immigrants came to this country to flee the authorities of their country. Where will people go to flee an international court that becomes destructive? Mars?
