I see that SCOTUS libjudge Ruth Ginsburg is in hospital again. I’m not going to do what the Left does, and start gleefully death-wishing her, but at the same time we need to be cognizant of the fact that at some point we’re going to need a replacement for the old Trot. But I am heartily sick of judges who appear conservative, but who when appointed to SCOTUS suddenly turn into Ginsburg Lite (e.g. Roberts and Kavanaugh).
So to add to the list of whomever God-Emperor Trump has on his prospect list, allow me to add these thoughts on the qualified candidates.
- I want a fire-breathin’, gun-totin’, huntin’ and fishin’ red-blooded judge who doesn’t care much for modernity.
- I don’t just want him to be a Constitutional constructionist — I want him to think that most Constitutional Amendments with a number greater than 10 should be fair game (especially the fucking 16th and 17th).
- When listening to lawyers debate any People vs. [government] or vice versa cases, I want the first question put to the government’s lawyer to be: “Show me where in the Constitution it says the government can do exactly that.”
- I want his guiding principle to be the question: “What would Jefferson, Adams or Washington think of this situation?” and direct his clerks to find the relevant writings to support the answer.
Feel free to add your proposed litmus tests to the above.
