QUICK HITTERS. POST #50. THE HORRIFIC IMPLICATIONS OF REFUSING TO MEET AND EVALUATE THE PRESIDENTS NOMINEE FOR THE U.S. SUPREME COURT. PART 2.

(THIS IS PART 2 IN A SERIES OF ARTICLES I WROTE CONCERNING
THE CONTROVERSY CREATED BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTIES 
TREATMENT OF MERRICK GARLAND, BARACK OBAMAS CHOICE 
TO FILL THE VACANCY ON THE U.S. SUPREME COURT.)

Usa, Court, Right, Paragraphs, Hammer


WITH PRESIDENT OBAMAS SELECTION OF CHIEF JUDGE MERRICK GARLAND, A HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND VERY CAPABLE CANDIDATE WHO CANNOT REASONABLY BE CONSIDERED TO FALL AT EITHER END OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM, THE CLOCK IS NOW TICKING FOR THE U.S. SENATE TO NOW FOLLOW ITS OATH OF OFFICE TO "SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION."

CONSIDER THE IMPLICATIONS IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY STILL REFUSES TO HONOR THEIR DUTY TO THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S.

#1-  IF THIS IS ALLOWED TO STAND, IS THE DOCUMENT NOW A "PICK AND CHOOSE" PIECE OF PAPER, THAT PERMITS A "FOLLOWING ITS DIRECTIONS IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT" MENTALITY, WHERE OBEYING THE GUIDELINES AND INSTRUCTIONS WRITTEN INTO THE BODY OF THE DOCUMENT ARE NO LONGER COMPULSORY?

IN OTHER WORDS-  THESE DIRECTIVES ARE NO LONGER UNIVERSAL, EQUALLY APPLIED TO EVERYONE IN EVERY CASE.  THEY NOW BECOME CONTINGENT UPON THE PERSONAL WHIMS, PREJUDICES, AND SELF-INTERESTS OF ANY POLITICIAN OR ELECTED OFFICIAL.

ONE OF THE STRENGTHS, AND ENDURING LEGACIES OF THE CONSTITUTION IS ITS SYSTEM OF "CHECKS AND BALANCES."  NONE OF THE THREE PARTS OF GOVERNMENT:

EXECUTIVE.

LEGISLATIVE.

JUDICIAL.

...WOULD HAVE UNCHALLENGED AUTHORITY OVER ANY PART OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM. HOWEVER, BY DISREGARDING CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY LEADERSHIP IS DESTROYING THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM. THEY WILL HAVE USURPED THE POWER OF THE PRESIDENT, BY REFUSING TO MEET AND CONSIDER HIS NOMINEE.

If this sounds good to you, RESEARCH THE WORD "OLIGARCHY", AND GET 
USE TO IT.
