Three cheers for Trump. He has apparently kept one of his most vital campaign promises. NRO editors are calling Gorsuch an “originalist” and this nomination to the Supreme Court A Win for the Constitution:
Originalism has faced resistance in modern times mostly because liberals would rather not go through the formal process of amending the Constitution in order to edit it to their liking, removing its structural limits on governmental power and putting their preferred policies beyond democratic review. Gorsuch’s record gives us cause to believe that he would use his vote and his voice to side with the actual Constitution.
Well done, President Trump. Your flighty, bizarre, sometimes deranged presidential campaign left more than a few people confused about what was smoke and what was mirrors and if there was anything of substance that lied beyond those two things. This is (I’ll wait for final confirmation from Mark Levin) a yuge win for the Constitution and a defeat for the mobocracy of Communist, America-hating, bed-wetting Snowflakes who are increasingly on the march.
I’ll eat crow and excrement sandwiches all day long if Trump keeps acting in ways that are conservative and for the betterment of our country. Please pass the Wonder Bread.
