Democrats seem to have come to the conclusion that the US Constitution is just a piece of paper with a few “guidelines” written on it by some old men who lived a long time ago, and who should have no relevance whatsoever to the way today’s judges justify their rulings.
Apparently, when it comes to judges making crucial court decisions, Democrats believe in their own personal interpretations, rather than the original content of the men who wrote it and signed it. To Liberals, it’s all about personal agendas and political beliefs now, instead of impartiality. So, under Democrats, we might as well wad up the Constitution and throw it out the window!
In the recent confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice nominee, Neil Gorsuch, we witnessed the way Democrats view a possible candidate for that position who believes in the original intent of the founders. And Judge Gorsuch
From Right Wing News:
Gorsuch is a constitutional originalist. He is for religious liberty and will steadfastly apply the law. And dig this… two Democrats told Judge Neil Gorsuch at his confirmation hearing on Monday that it’s not a good thing for a Supreme Court Justice to interpret the Constitution based on the Founders’ original intent: “In contrast to past nominees like John Roberts, whose judicial philosophy was not clearly articulated when he appeared before this committee, Judge Gorsuch appears to have a comprehensive originalist philosophy, the approach taken by jurors such as Justice Scalia, Justice Thomas, former Judge Bork,” Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said in his opening statement. “While it has gained some popularity within conservative circles, originalism, I believe, remains outside the mainstream of moderate constitutional jurisprudence.” Leahy is anti-Constitution and anti-Founding Principles. He is a Marxist and this statement does not surprise me in the least.
FOX News reported:
Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy struggled to pin down Judge Neil Gorsuch Tuesday on President Trump’s controversial travel ban, as the Supreme Court nominee smoothly sidestepped questions relating to the policy currently on hold by the courts.
Gorsuch instead directed the contentious cross-examination into more general terrain where Gorsuch could advocate for religious liberty, without commenting on the specifics of the case.
“I will apply the law,” Gorsuch vowed, during the second day of his Senate confirmation hearing.
Leahy initially had tried to get the 10th Circuit Court judge to comment on the notion of a “religious litmus test for entry into the United States,” in apparent reference to Trump’s attempt to suspend immigration and travel from six mostly Muslim countries and the refugee program.
Gorsuch parried, refusing to discuss issues that could come before a court he sits on.
“Would the president have the authority to ban all Jews from America? Or all people that come from Israel? Would that be an easy question?” Leahy asked.
“Senator, we have a Constitution, and it does guarantee free exercise. It also guarantees equal protection of the laws. And a whole lot else besides,” Gorsuch said. “… I will apply the law faithfully and fearlessly and without regard to persons.”

Democrats, nowadays, are more communist than they are “Democratic” and we should start calling them DINOs or “Democrats In Name Only!” They have moved so far to the left in the political spectrum that they no longer even resemble the original Democrat party.
That’s why we shouldn’t be surprised when they want to shred the Constitution and abolish what’s left of our constitutional rights. And that is especially why we need Judge Gorsuch on the Supreme Court!
