The Supreme Court should NOT be “right” or “left”, or Republican or Democrat! The job of the Supreme Court is to uphold the Constitution AS WRITTEN, examining laws as to whether they comply with that Constitution and do not violate any of the rights or precepts enumerated in it. Their job is NOT to rule based on what they feel, what they wish, or how they think things “ought” to be. Therefore, their “politics” should have NO BEARING on their decisions!
While that TOTAL objectivity may not be possible to attain for mere humans (which Supreme Court Justices ARE, after all), but THAT is what they should strive for! It is the reason they were given appointments for LIFE by our Founding Fathers–to set them free from political pressures and partisan concerns.
All that being said, I’m not thrilled that Pres. Trump felt he had to pick an NWO Bush “establishment” guy to have a chance in hell of getting him confirmed, but that’s the political reality HE has to deal with. I hope and pray that Kavannaugh is the strict Constitutionalist he SAYS he is, but I guess time will tell.
Meanwhile, the LYING Commucrats’ INCESSANT fearmongering about how EVERY judge Pres. Trump appoints to the Supreme Court will spell the end of civilization as we know it is just STUPID, COUNTERPRODUCTIVE and DISHONEST, and it needs to stop! They were carrying on like that before they even knew who the nominee would be!
SCOTUS shouldn’t have a political orientation–but if we expect them to approach the Constitution by interpreting and preserving the intentions of its authors, then we expect them to approach it with a philosophy distinctively associated with “the right”, as contrasted with the Left’s pet revisionist approach of treating it as a “living, breathing document”.

IMO that is why since we KNEW THE Commucrats, would be fearmongering, no MATTER WHO trump selected, he should have selected the MOST Constitutionalist there was..
President Trump — bringing reality to Leftist America……
Since all federal judges ARE political (don’t kid yourself otherwise), let’s ELECT them. The judges should have six-year terms, one-third to be elected each two years by “We, the People” of the respective jurisdictions.
I’d prefer to just have term limits for ALL federal officials AND federal employees. 6 years and done, regardless of office or job held. If you can’t get the job done in 6 years, it likely shouldn’t have been done. Elect House members and 1/3 of ALL other elected offices except President every even number year. Elect President every 6th odd numbered year in a stand-alone election. That would really stir the pot!
