Justice Ginsburg Doesn't Recommend The US Constitution?
Recently while visiting Egypt, liberal Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg made some disparaging remarks concerning the US Constitution.
Remember that our Supreme Court Judges are appointed for life, and it is their job, their loyal obligation to interpret US law according to the Constitution. Every American politician or judicial appointee elected to office takes a solemn oath to defend the US Constitution.
The question of why Justice, Ruth Ginsburg would actually make negative comments about the US Constitution is not only disconcerting but indicative of the unprecedented group of compromised political figures we now have violating lawful processes of the federal government at this time. This question of absent loyalty must indeed be addressed.
Although Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg is a liberal proponent and decidedly so in order to balance more conservative appointees such as Justice John Roberts, this does not justify her criticism of the greatest document to ever outline the role of government in the lives of its citizens in human history. Without the US Constitution specifically defining just how the government should operate and that its job is to serve the citizens of this nation, it would merely be just another piece of official paper. However, our forefathers wanted individual freedom and liberty for all future generations of Americans clearly defined as well as the role of the federal government so that it would never restrict or micro manage American citizens.
Ginsburg’s remarks were not only critical, but disrespectful. She advocated that Egyptians seek a model other than the American version of the Constitution in their quest for a Democracy. Much to the contrary of what most Americans have been led to believe, a Democracy is not mentioned or even intended within the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, or Bill of Rights. America is a Constitutional Republic. There is a difference. Ginsburg, though conceding that wise men did indeed preside over the drafting of the US Constitution and that it has many virtues, still advised Egyptians to seek other more recently composed documents of international origin. Ruth Bader Ginsburg characterized the US Constitution as outdated and having the flaw of being created by only by men.
A republic is a nation governed by laws of its very own Constitution. That Constitution is in turn used to govern the people through elected representatives. Though the citizens do not participate directly in the government unless elected to office, they are represented by their Congress and Senate. Democracies are closer to being socialistic in their definition of people’s rights as well as rights of those individuals to property. Many Democracies in the world have degenerated into mass or mob rule while trampling on the rights of minorities. Ruth Bader Ginsburg in urging Egyptians to embrace Democracy may very well doom that country to more rule of the mob especially in light of the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood already prevalent within the country.
It is the job of American officials to speak of our Constitution as a guiding light for others who value human rights to follow, not to acknowledge that our great system of government is no longer relevant in 2012.
These types of contrarian opinions voiced about the Constitution are a dangerous indication of just how corrupt and insincere our political and judicial leadership is to its very own source of guiding influence. If our elected officials and lifetime judges in the Supreme Court can’t acknowledge or praise the US Constitution than something here in America is deeply wrong. We can see that there is a troubling departure from the system of law consisting of checks and balances intended by our founding fathers through the criminal actions of the Obama administration today.
I can only add that it is quite ironic that Supreme Court Justice appear on Egyptian TV to a nation that has just suffered revolution and civil strife to actually tell these people she does not recommend the very Constitution it is her job to legally explain and justify. It is almost tragically laughable and a clear insight into the present compromise and failure of our present government.
