To further complicate the 2020 presidential election campaign, Supreme Bureaucrat Ruth Bader Ginsburg has finally kicked the bucket, after suffering 20 years or more of cancers and other illnesses.
Trump wants to nominate a replacement “justice,” and Democrats want Trump to wait until after the election, “after the people have voted.” But the people have voted, in 2016, and the current presidential term still has 4 months to go. So there.
Now, as far as I’m concerned, Ginsburg should not be replaced, and the remaining “justices” (sic) should all be dismissed, forthwith. They all suck. They are all rubber-stampers for the State.
Rarely does the High Court rule in favor of the individual and individual rights, private property rights, voluntary association and voluntary contract.
There was one decision that I can think of in which Ginsburg voted the right way, an 8-1 decision and she was the lone dissent. The 8 nazis voted in favor of government police violently breaking into people’s homes, terrorizing them and arresting them because of the State’s “war on drugs,” because the police “smelled marijuana” and heard “evidence being destroyed.”
Evidence of WHAT? Someone smoking marijuana in his own home? There is no crime there. There is no victim there. Sadly, the other “liberals” on the High Court agreed with the drug nazis and disagreed with Ginsburg who cited that dusty old Fourth Amendment.
But her vote in that case certainly was not a vote in favor of private property rights, as she also voted with the majority in the Kelo vs. New London case, in which the High Court allowed for private developers to steal private property, aided and abetted by local government schnooks, on behalf of private interests and not on behalf of the “public” that the Fifth Amendment demands.
So in general, Ginsburg was awful, voting to approve government fascism in other ways, such as ObamaCare’s mandate and other horrible rulings against the rights of the people and their property. In the end, with few exceptions such as the aforementioned police-marauder drug case, Ginsburg was just another pinko commie bureaucrat. Oh, well.
