but they are above the law

That's the whole point of government courts. Who judges the government? The government judges itself. The government decides what the law means with respect to itself. Thus, the government is not bound by the law. If the government does not like an interpretation of a law, it just changes the interpretation. Furthermore, the government is not bound by any law produced by anyone else. I challenge you to come up with a stronger example of being above the law.

What we need is the separation of courts and state. What we need is competition in the production of law.
