To The Daily Sun,
Why I Won't be voting for Hillary: Reason 7 — Supreme Court Justices and the judicial system.
We all know that there will need to be a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Scalia. There is no replacement. Scalia's rulings were based on his interpretation of the law, existing law. Some liberal judges think they should not interpret the law but make a ruling depending what they think the law should be.
Our country was founded with checks and balances. Laws are to be made by the legislature. Judges interpret the laws.
Who we choose for president this election will affect all the courts for maybe the next 20 years.
We seem to think just the Supreme Court is important. But not so. President Obama has appointed many lower court judges. There are twice as many lower court Democrat appointees than Republican appointees.
Because of this, many more cases are going before the Supreme Court. We need to keep a balance in the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court hears about 70-80 cases a year. We must also keep a balance in the lower courts as many cases won't be able to come before the Supreme Court.
Obama changed the D.C. circuit. Senator Harry Reid changed the rules that allowed three Obama appointees to the D.C. circuit. This court deals with executive power. Having a shift in this area allowed Obama to get away with all the executive orders he did.
Liberal supreme court justices lean to agreeing with international law. The U.S. has the Constitution. We must not let international laws override our constitutional laws. This would take away our rights.
The courts are leaning liberal. All the courts. If Hillary is elected, they will not only lean liberal but bend over liberal. We must make them even again. If the balance changes in the liberal favor for 20 years, our rights could be forever changed. Our country will never be the same if we vote for Hillary.
