Just Saying ~

In light of the recent new with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's pasting, it got me thinking. 

What does “lifetime” appointment mean to you?  It means, and for a Supreme Court Justice, a lifetime role in what he or she is appointed for.  Which means the only way they leave such an important office is by – resigning, impeachment, or death.  That is why it is crucial the right person fill such a spot.  Apparently, as I understand, not much is said with a time limit for such an appointment.  However, the Senate has a constitutional role in the process, which is co-equal.  It isn’t just our Commander in Chief’s role. 

We the people also have a right to be heard, since it is a lifetime job; that will affect all of us for a very long time.  All that we hold dear rides in the balance.  What are your values and that for your children?  I’ve listened to the arguments about when the Constitution was written, thinking it doesn’t apply to the age we live in now.   Au contraire ~ it’s foolish for people to think this way.  There isn’t anything in this great document that can’t apply for “we the people” in this day and age. 

It’s no secret that this President doesn’t care what I think, since I’m also apart of we the people.  But it should be a concern to all; it’s our right.  Do we even still have a voice?  The Constitution says we do!  But, that hasn’t seemed to matter in the past several years.  And why? I’m sure you have your own opinions and I can respect that.  As I was thinking just now – I’ve had family members and friends stop all communications with me for my opinions. They’ve also said they respect others and their opinions.  Maybe with opinions that are more in line with theirs – I don’t know?  Why I say this is and for what it’s worth – we all have opinions, and we all have the right to want the best person for that position. 

The Constitution is not a just piece of paper with meaningless words subject to different interpretations!  We can’t afford to have it undermined.  We need balance in this position, those serving with integrity and honoring what is written.  

It would be an honorable act for this President; to allow a newly elected President an opportunity to select someone qualified that best represents the people.
