It's the Constitution, stupid!

Americans need to ask themselves the following question: Do I want the courts to decide cases on the basis of good public policy, or do I want them to decide them on the basis of what the Constitution says?

Nearly every ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court, including the recent overturn of the Washington, D.C., gun ban confronts us with this dilemma.

Naturally, most Americans want their own opinions to prevail in court cases, just as they would like their opinions to prevail in legislative debates or in elections.

However, the courts were never established for this purpose. Courts were established to uphold the existing laws, and, in the case of the U.S. Supreme Court, to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

The Constitution is the law of the land. We are a nation of laws, not lawlessness.

That is why this election is more important than many believe. The next Supreme Court appointment will happen in the next presidency.

I believe the real question here is; Do you want a President that believes that the Supreme Court has the right to make law from the bench, or from the Constitution?

We barely just got to keep our second amendment rights. Obama appointments would insure that we would lose that right.
