We all agree, it is important to get behind constructive legislation that positively impacts our country. To learn more about legislation being considered by Congress go to: www.Congress.gov and type in either the name of the bill, type of legislation, or the bill number.
One has to wonder – Are our elected leaders doing everything they can to protect our freedom, health, security, prosperity, and happiness? Or, are they leaving much of the heavy lifting and many of the tough issues up to the Supreme Court? http://www.supremecourt.gov/
In the last ten years, two Supreme Court decisions have effected us more than any legislation that was signed into law. These two court cases are:
Both decisions had to do with the state of Connecticut.
Is the Supreme Court becoming the "Default-Federal Government-Decision-Maker"?
As a third branch of government why is that important in a US Senate race?
Because, as you know, the US Senate has to give its consent for a person to be appointed to SCOTUS.
To achieve E Pluribus Enum we have to fully debate issues in Congress and reach a consensus and sign into law good legislation rather than just "Drop-Kick" issues such as "The Right To Privacy" and "Property Rights" to our judicial system. Otherwise, we may ultimately be giving away our rights to individuals with Life-Time Appointments.
Remember learning about the Dred Scott Decision?
What type of Judges will your US Senate Candidate appoint to the bench?
I believe the role of Our Congress is to discuss and pass legislation (Even On Controversial Issues) and Our Judicial System was designed only to Interpret ambiguity in legislation that was passed – Not to legislate from the bench. Consequently, I will only appoint Judges that are Strict Constructionists. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strict_constructionism
