Perhaps now....The United States Supreme Court has an 'adult figure' in the room
"Neil Gorsuch is exactly the kind of of
Supreme Court Justice
WE (the people) NEED" *
Occasionally, we Americans ALL need a reminder that our unique form of government has endured throughout the years because it is grounded in principles and laws established by a comprehensive, and conclusive document...The Constitution of The United States of America.
Unfortunately, there are those among us (We the People) who sometimes emerge with a distorted interpretation of how those original founders penned these words with an everlasting meaning, allowing no future individual the option to rewrite this document to favor one faction over any other--everyone being governed as ONE.
So when a current Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor had earlier in her career declared, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that live." she should have been disqualified from 'serving All the People' at the highest court of this land. Her words, according to both Constitutional scholars and average Americans, appeared to suggest a possible prejudice favoring one gender or group of individuals over a majority of others solely to demonstrate a miscarriage of the law based on personal compassion and feelings.
According to Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, "We've had too many judges ruling according to their personal views for too long. As Gorsuch himself recently put it, "judges should be in the business of declaring what the law is using the traditional tools of interpretation, rather than pronouncing the law as they might wish it to be in light of their own political views." That should go for conservatives and liberals alike." *
Hawley concludes, "The Constitution makes Americans who we are."
Our newest Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, laid out by his lifetime career of supporting the words set forth by our founding fathers, hopefully will be the Justice...we Americans need to "protect it."
