As if we didn't have enough opposition to deal with in Washington, it seems that the Supreme Court is also turning its back on the Constitution (and those who believe in its validity) and the freedoms that Americans have enjoyed for over 230 years.
On Jan. 30 of this year, Supreme Court associate justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, made the following statement in an interview on Egypt's Al-Hayat TV: "I would not look to the U.S. Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look to the constitution of South Africa," she declared. Why? Because, Ginsburg complains, "[the U.S.] Constitution is a rather old constitution."
To me, that's grounds for impeachment and removal from office. If our Constitution is to be saved at all, we must place those in that office who honor, uphold and sustain that venerated document, which I consider to be inspired by good men who wanted to establish a country with guaranteed individual freedoms and perpetrated for all generations to come. I also think that any officer of the government who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution should be held liable and subject to removal as well if they violate and deviate from that oath.
