Putting an end to idiocy and hypocrisyBy Native Sun News Editorial Board
Why should someone aspiring to be appointed to the U. S. Supreme Court even belong to a political party? In school we were taught that justice is blind and an image of a woman wearing a blindfold and holding the so-called scales of justice emphasized this point. But what has happened since then? Donald Trump is about to appoint another justice to the Supreme Court. His base, the Republican Party, the Democrats and most Americans are going nuts. It should never have come to this. Anyone appointed to the Supreme Court should not be chosen for political affiliation and more than that should not be chosen for their Christian or personal ideologies. Every judge appointed to any federal bench should be politically independent. Whether a justice is for or against abortion or the Affordable Care Act should never be a part of the judicial persuasion.
Has it always been this way? Have both major political parties turned so violently against each other that there is no longer room for compromise? Have they stopped considering the wants and needs of the people they were elected to serve or is Party over People now the new norm? These are questions we should be asking ourselves as we head into one of the most important mid-term elections in our history. Everything we were taught that was good in America is on the line. Granted not all has always been good in America and the “Make America Great Again,” the slogan of Donald S. Trump was really a slogan filled with empty words, there were those people out there who actually believed that nonsense. America was never that great. America had warts on its nose that were concealed by ignoring history and re-writing the history books. The reasons for bringing truth and justice back to America is something that can be done. Trump has told more than 3,000 outright lies since he assumed the helm of the presidency and that has to set a record that is far above that of any other president. He lies and his administration and Party swear to it. Let’s see some real change in the mid-term elections and bring an end to this idiotic hypocrisy.
