George Will Would Make a Great Justice!

I admit that I do not understand the positions of the various Supreme Court Justices. 

English is my native tongue. I read and understand the language, and the Constitution is written in plain English language. How there can be such contentious disagreements of the Constitution is a foreign concept to me. 

How many opinions can there be of the word “no” as in the First Amendment? How many opinions of the words “shall not be abridged” can there be in the Second Amendment? 

And, perhaps most importantly, the 10th Amendment says quite specifically that if the Constitution does not give the Federal Government the power to do it (as it does the military), the subject is the right of the states to decide! Now here it must be noted that Conservatives are as guilty of ignoring the 10th Amendment as are the liberals. The Court, being the federal seat of judicial power, is as reluctant to surrender that to the states as is Congress and the presidency. 

Even when I went to school a million years ago, the “Living Constitution” concept was being taught, but that concept is absolutely bogus — it is a concept that says that “no” can be interpreted to mean “yes” if the Justices believe the culture says it should be done. Disregard the ability to Amend the Constitution, as provided for in the Constitution itself…that just takes so long, it’s too complicated and so five Justices can just change the Constitution to suit themselves. 

I find it strange that the term “red” can be interpreted to mean “blue” if the society decides so (as deemed by the Justices), that “murder” can be construed to mean “robbery.” 

I have written and published thousands of newspaper columns, and I contend that, since the Constitution does not require that a Justice of the Supreme Court be an attorney, we nominate a “wordsmith” like George Will! 

Because the Constitution was not written in legalese but rather in plain English, Justices need not be attorneys.

I contend that attorneys are not even desirable, because they overthink the Constitution instead of simply applying the words as written. Lawyers are incapable of just applying the written word, they are accustomed to trying to find loopholes. 

I believe George Will should be the next Justice of the Supreme Court. He understands the English language as it was written…and at least the terms in the Constitution remain the same today as the day they were written.

Fortunately, the thinking of the Founders was well documented in articles and letters should there be any question, but I trust Pulitzer Prize Winning George Will, author of six books, numerous columns, and former professor of political philosophy. He studied at Trinity College, Princeton and Oxford

“The Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document. It says something and doesn’t say other things.”
