If Sonia Sotomayor is confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States, we will have someone who will ignore the Constitution and make her decisions by whatever she “feels” is the correct decision by ignoring “white men” (her words, not mine) and giving preference to Latinos. Remember, she pointed to her Latino background as why she thinks she can give “fairer” SCOTUS decisions.
Her recent decision on the firemen (Riccii v DeStefano) was overturned by the SCOTUS that she is drooling to join. It is funny that she ruled against a Hispanic in favor to push her socialist agenda.
This decision was not announced and a single, non-published paragraph which showed the vast amount of research she did in writing this decision. By the way, the SCOTUS opinion overturning her decision was 86 pages; the SCOTUS really did perform their investigation, with all nine justices concurring.
She will also use foreign law in making decisions. I am no constitutional lawyer or scholar, but I can read and the Supreme court is only supposed to decide whether or not a law or court decision is Constitutional. That’s it. SCOTUS is not supposed to make any law.
Sonia wrote that she will legislate and make law from the bench. If she wanted to make laws, she should have become a legislator. Sonia said: “our society would be straight-jacketed were not the courts, with the able assistance of the lawyers, constantly overhauling the law and adapting it to the realities of ever-changing social, industrial, and political changes.” In other words, she will make laws regardless of what the Constitution says. She should have been disbarred for this article.
She not only does not believe in the Second Amendment, but she does not even believe in our God-given right to self defense! The Heritage Foundation reports a question and answer exchange between Sonia and Senator Tom Coburn:
Coburn: As a citizen of this country, do you believe innately in my ability to have self-defense of myself — personal self-defense? Do I have a right to personal self-defense?
Sotomayor: I’m trying to think if I remember a case where the Supreme Court has addressed that particular question. Is there a Constitutional right to self-defense? And I can’t think of one. I could be wrong, but I can’t think of one…
Coburn: But do you have an opinion, or can you give me your opinion, of whether or not in this country I personally, as an individual citizen, have a right to self-defense?
Sotomayor: I — as I said, I don’t know.
Is this the intelligence we need to make further decisions based on the Heller decision?
Those of you who know me also know I worked on the Bush for President Email campaign which helped decide the 2000 election. I guarantee you that I will fight just as hard against all the Republicans that vote for Sonia’s confirmation and I suggest you do the same. Stay tuned for more.
Another thought about Sonia:
1 Timothy 1:7 (NIV) They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.
