Trump has been proved right yet again! His choice of Supreme Court Justice, Neil Gorsuch, which was blocked initially by Democrats has proven to be a good move. For the first time, Gorsuch has taken a stand against the majority and shown his real worth.
The reason that this stand was so special is that it shows the real position of the Supreme Court; they are not there to be lawmakers (that is the job of Congres), they are there to enforce and interpret the law to the best of their abilities. Gorsuch’s decision has been very popular among Conservatives (and Liberals) because it shows that the system of checks and balances between the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary can still be maintained even through these times of political upheaval.
To have a real Constitutionalist on the Supreme Court is very welcome. It shows that despite the warfare between parties and individuals, that the protections afforded to Americans as their birthright will be preserved. If only Trump could get one more nomination in.
As reported in Young Conservatives:
Conservatives are cheering the first dissenting opinion written by new Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
Their faith in the conservative sensibility of Gorsuch was amply borne out in the decision.
From Biz Pac Review:
When newly-minted Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch joined originalist stalwart Clarence Thomas in a 7-2 dissent that reads like something the founders would have written, any conservatives who might have been concerned about Gorsuch somehow being another David Souter probably stopped worrying.
“Anthony Perry asks us to tweak a congressional statute—just a little—so that it might (he says) work a bit more efficiently,” Gorsuch writes. “No doubt his invitation is well meaning. But it’s one we should decline all the same. Not only is the business of enacting statutory fixes one that belongs to Congress and not this Court, but taking up Mr. Perry’s invitation also seems sure to spell trouble. Respectfully, I would decline Mr. Perry’s invitation and would instead just follow the words of the statute as written.”
