LOGIC. WHEN OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS IGNORE REASON, EVERYONE SUFFERS. #3.

So, What Could Be The True Purpose behind the Republican Parties Leadership not wanting to hold FORMAL SENATE HEARINGS ON JUDGE GARLANDS NOMINATION FOR THE OPEN SEAT ON THE SUPREME COURT, WHICH IS A VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL GUIDELINES THAT OUTLINE THE PROCESS TO FILL THE VACANCY?

-  They want the Next President to Address the Situation, BY PERSONALLY SELECTING THE NEXT NOMINEE.

There is no where in the BODY OF THE CONSTITUTION THAT EVEN HINTS THAT SUCH A DECISION IS VALID AND LEGAL. In Addition, NO LEGAL PRECEDENT, SET BY JUDICIAL REVIEW, CAN BE CITED TO SUPPORT THIS ACTION.

Even if this is THE TRUE EXPLANATION, HOLDING THE HEARINGS, AND VOTING DOWN THE NOMINATION, WOULD ACCOMPLISH THE SAME THING.

-  There is a Lack of Support in the SENATE, WHICH MEANS DENYING JUDGE GARLAND THE OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN THE COURT.

AGAIN, HOLDING THE HEARINGS, AND REQUIRING A VOTE, WOULD END WITH THE SAME RESULT: JUDGE GARLANDS NOMINATION FAILING TO GET APPROVAL.


However, what happens if the HEARINGS ARE HELD, AND A VOTE TAKEN, THAT DOES NOT OCCUR IF THE NOMINATION IS KILLED BY A REFUSAL TO FOLLOW PROPER CONSTITUTIONAL PROCEDURES?

-  AN OPEN FORUM TO ASK JUDGE GARLAND QUESTIONS REGARDING HIS 
CAPABILITIES, ATTITUDES, AND BACKGROUND THAT WOULD SHED LIGHT ON HIS FITNESS IN FILLING THE VACANCY.  THIS WOULD REVEAL, TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, THE TYPE OF PERSON JUDGE GARLAND IS, AND WHAT HE REPRESENTS, MORALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. 

-  THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHO APPROVE OF JUDGE GARLAND, TO QUESTION AND PROBE THE REASONS GIVEN BY THOSE WHO ARE IN OPPOSITION. THIS WOULD REVEAL TO CONSTITUENTS THE REASONING BEHIND DENYING JUDGE GARLAND A SEAT ON THE SUPREME COURT.

-  FINALLY, A VOTE, ON THE RECORD, THAT EACH SENATOR WOULD HAVE TO CAST, WITHOUT HIDING BEHIND UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND OBSTRUCTIONIST TACTICS.

HOWEVER, THE REAL REASON MAY BE AN ATTEMPT TO SUBVERT OUR CONSTITUTIONAL TRADITIONS.

LOOK FOR THE NEXT POST.
