The Supreme court was created to make sure that everyone, including the President, Congress, and all citizens follow the Constitution.
They were to be the arbiters of what is “Constitutional” or what is “Unconstitutional”.
Instead, the Supreme Court is now a hotbed of political partisanship and worries about whether a law or executive order will “affect” our American citizens or, whether if , as Ruth Bader Ginsberg is quoted as saying, “….the American people are ‘ready” for gay marriage”.
How far the Justices have come from the ideal of judging laws and issues, based on the simple criteria that the law or issue be consistent with the Constitution of the United States!
Now, Chief Justice Roberts worries about whether the court will be seen as partisan.
Ginsberg believes a law should stand because she perceives that the public is ready for it.
Kennedy worries about the impact of rejecting a law because of its impact upon health insurance companies!
While the decision as to whether some law is truly Constitutional might be difficult, that is the ONLY basis for either accepting or rejecting a new law.
So, Roberts and Ginsberg and Kennedy, please remember that you are to see if every new law reflects the intent of the Constitution. Other factors, such as whether new laws have an economic or emotional impact upon Americans was NEVER to be the criteria upon which laws are judged!
YOU ARE ARBITERS OF THE CONSTITUTION. YOU ARE NOT THE CONSCIENCE OF AMERICA.
