A Supreme Court justice should be a Constitutional conservative
Kudos to Neil Gorsuch! Much has been written by the left and the right about Neil Gorsuch — from his nomination for an opening on the Supreme Court to his voting on cases brought to the highest court in the land.
So far, he has been conducting himself like all justices should: keeping personal opinions to himself, and speaking for our founders with a literal interpretation of the Constitution by using the definitions of words as they were used at the time of our founding.
Remember, definitions of words have a way of changing over the years, so to understand and make decisions based on the Constitution, you must use the definitions our founders used when creating this precious document.
All justices should be Constitutional conservatives, not political pawns!
