Letter To Congresspeoples
I expect the next Supreme Court Justice to follow in the footsteps of Sandra Day O'Connor and rule both by the wisdom of common sense and by the progress and evolution our nation has undergone during these almost 250 years since our independence as markers for deciding what is and is not in the best interest of this nation judicially. To base a confirmation on ideology or philosophy goes against the very grain of democracy. To maintain that the writers of the Constitution would not have approved of a contemporary ruling is to say that our nation has made no progress on our "experiment" in over two centuries. Justices must be allowed to deviate and think outside of accepted norms when dealing with arguments that can polarize us. If "thou shall not kill" can be construed to mean "thou shall not murder" by those who would demand strict Constitutional adherence, then their own argument is destroyed. Please demand that any Supreme Court nominee show a devotion to common sense rather than a slavery to blind obedience.
