The panic of the progressives is purely palpable in this, the year of our Lord two-thousand and eighteen, and no concern is greater than the possibility that the Supreme Court will be returned to its Constitutional, conservative roots.
So far in the Donald Trump administration, we have seen the appointment and confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch, and now, with the Justice Kennedy returning to civilian life, the President seems likely to have his next appointee, Brett Kavanaugh, appointed as well.
This, of course, has the liberal left in a tizzy, scrambling to make sure that the conservative movement that is so strong among We The People doesn’t translate to the court system…otherwise, the democrats and their progressive counterparts will be fighting an uphill battle against the Constitution for several decades to come. Next on the chopping block, so to speak, is the 85 year old liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
No worries, democrats: Ginsburg plans on making important societal decisions until at least the ripe old age of 90.
“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said on Sunday. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”She has already hired law clerks for at least two more terms.Ginsburg spoke in New York following a production of “The Originalist,” a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia, at the 59E59 Theater.“If I had my choice of dissenters when I was writing for the court, it would be Justice Scalia,” Ginsburg said, saying that the back and forth would help her form her arguments. “Sometimes it was like a ping-pong game.”
As a result, Ginsburg said, her landmark decision opening up the Virginia Military Institute to female cadets was her 18th draft.
