The next Supreme Court Justice should be decided by the American people through their vote for the next U.S. president, Heritage scholar and former Attorney General Ed Meese writes on FoxNews.com. The decision should not be left up to President Obama.
The people should decide the next justice, Meese argues. When they vote for the next president, they will “not only determine where the American people want their country to go but the direction they want their court to take.”
The American people deserve to have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice but President Obama and his liberal allies in Congress want to deny the public that voice.
The risks of simply accepting President Obama’s appointment are tremendous, he continues:
President Obama has already placed two extremely liberal justices on the court, he will no doubt select someone who would ensure liberal domination of the court for the next generation.
As of now, the court is one vote away from restricting or eliminating Second Amendment rights, one vote away from allowing the Environmental Protection Agency to run amok, one vote away from further restricting or eliminating religious freedom altogether, one vote away from legalizing Partial Birth Abortion, one vote away from giving the IRS free rein to persecute innocent Americans for political purposes.
What do you think? Should the Senate confirm President Obama’s appointee to the Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland?
