SENATOR–SPEAK FOR AMERICA

like this........

I am voting to REJECT Judge Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.

Her repeated statements render her unfit.

But I rise to speak as to the more fundamental flaw.

The flawed world view from President Obama that a candidate should even be considered who has an “empathy” agenda. Judges are to be neutral and unbiased.

Judges should NOT favor one ethnic group over another, or one economic class over another.

Rich or poor, the Courtroom floor should be level.

Our founding fathers relied upon the Bible and its principles for most of the Constitution. They made contemporaneous statements attesting to the wisdom of the Bible and Ben Franklin prayed to the group during a critical impasse.

In America we are all free to accept, reject, or despise the Bible. But just listen to wisdom of the Biblical standard for Judges of which our Founding Fathers were well versed in Leviticus and Deuteronomy:

Lev 19:15 “ ‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.


Dt 1:16 And I charged your judges at that time: Hear the disputes between your brothers and judge fairly, whether the case is between brother Israelites or between one of them and an alien.


Dt 1:17 Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be afraid of any man, for judgment belongs to God. Bring me any case too hard for you, and I will hear it.

Our Constitution will not function without Judges who will be impartial and who are not blinded by a distorted worldview of preferences, empathy and any other sentiment other than JUSTICE.

This is not just an academic exercise. You saw the Firefighters at this hearing. They were real people, with real families who were denied Justice by Judge Sotomayor.

Those Firefighters only got Justice because Judge Sotomayor was NOT on the Supreme Court.
