Supreme Court

October 25, 2020 Updated: October 25, 2020

Any appointment to the Supreme Court is a vital decision that a president must make when the opportunity arises. Such is the case now for President Trump. The nine-member court is the final arbiter for all laws of the land. [Determining] whether any law that is passed by the local, state, and federal legislative bodies throughout the country follows the U.S. Constitution is the task of the nine justices.

Today, it appears that the past couple of appointments to the body have resulted in many people complaining about the leanings of the court. Many feel that the court is too liberal, others too conservative.

But whoever is appointed to that illustrious body should be a really excellent constitutional scholar so he/she can adjudicate decisions that follow what is laid out in the Constitution.

The nomination of Justice Barrett is a very good choice if one cares to review her past decisions. These decisions for the most part followed precepts as outlined by the U.S. Constitution. As a result, I feel she would make a very good Supreme Court justice.
