Litmus Test

Regardless of whether it is right or wrong and no matter if we admit it or not, for decades we have had a simple litmus test with respect to candidates for the Supreme Court. Does the person support or oppose abortion?

It has been a while, but I think Rush Limbaugh once commented that from a Constitutional perspective the critical error of Roe VS. Wade was that this should never have been made a federal law. Rather, it should be up to each state to determine the legality of abortion.

Regardless, it is my belief that we should have a new litmus test for any Supreme Court nominee. It is simply this: Do you believe in Sanctuary Cities?

At this point in time, the answer to that simple question provides us with profound insight.

According to our Founding Fathers, we are supposed to be a nation of laws, not a nation of men. By this it was meant that the law was to be applied equally among us all. George Washington refused to be named King and would not put himself above the law. Ask yourself, have we abandoned this concept that is so vital to a free Republic?

Do laws even matter anymore? Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis recently appeared in video offering government assistance to illegal immigrants who think they are underpaid. She gave a toll free phone number and promised confidentiality.

Our government has for decades refused to protect our borders. It is so bad today that there is a significant portion of Arizona where the government has posted signs warning that it is too dangerous for We the People. Yet, the government will not enforce the federal immigration regulations. When Arizona writes their own regulation that mirrors the federal regulation, our government threatens to sue Arizona. I guess if you do not believe in God, you have no reason to take your oath of office seriously.

It is my contention that a person who believes in Sanctuary Cities, by definition, cannot believe in the rule of law. I do not want anyone on the United States Supreme Court who does not believe in the rule of law.

  1. I don't want anyone on the Supreme Court who doesn't believe in God. How can they place their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the "law" when they don't believe in it. Each law was founded upon what our forefathers believed was true. They believed in God's word and the Law that God set forth. Our country is heading for the sewer.
