Today, my friends, the United States Supreme Court is at a tipping point. With the announced retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens, it is extremely important that a suitable replacement is found for Justice Stevens who will support those laws which our government was founded on that still remain popular to this day.
When George Bush was President, he picked two justices in Samuel Alito and John Roberts who were not only the epitome of judicial temperament, but also strict Constitutionalists who follow the ideals our founding fathers had for this country, its people, and its corporations. I had hoped that President Obama would follow President Bush's lead, but instead he has selected unqualified radicals in Justice Sotomayor and now with his latest nominee.
Right now, the Democrats have a majority, but we must not allow them to pack this court with another radical. We need only look at this nominee's judicial record to see a long history of supporting liberal special interests and turning their back on the family values and fiscal conservatism that this country was founded on.
As I mentioned earlier, judicial temperament is just as important as strict adherence to the Constitutionalism. That is why I can't understand why Obama has selected a nominee who is alternately bookishly withdrawn and prone to rage. Surely, there were other potential nominees who were better qualified. Obama's nominee seems to be defensive about both gender and race in a way that is unbecoming of a justice and would make me wonder if a white male could possibly get a fair hearing in front of them. The nominee has made repeated racist and/or sexist remarks that should disqualify anybody from the highest court in the land.
This nominee has not only shown a fondness for socialist philosophers, but also a liberal bias that will seriously endanger rights that we hold dear like the Second Amendment. I urge everybody to please call your Senator and let them know you will not support such a radical nominee.
