With conservative eyes and focus on the upcoming primaries, candidate vetting, and general election, sometimes a bit of news such as this is lost. A hat tip to Breitbart.tv for locating this little nugget.
US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg tells Egyptians: Don’t look to the “OLD US Constitution” for guidance in drafting a new constitution. Justice Ginsburg holds in high esteem the constitution of South Africa and Canada.
So, Patriots, as you vet candidates, work on campaigns for House, Senate, Presidential, and local offices, I encourage you to pay close attention to those in the judicial branch.
The judicial branch of government is the most overlooked segment of our elections. I remember in 2010, numerous individuals wrote me, down to the wire, on the General Election because they had completely forgotten about judges on the ballots. Many had no idea whom they should or shouldn’t support. How many judges won by default? How many were voted on and approved by well intentioned individuals that really had no clue about the Judge on the ballot?
We must ensure that this year is truly the year of the Tea Party. How do we do that? We pay attention, we vet candidates in all branches, we ask questions, seek truthful information, and make informed decisions. Don’t wait to the last minute to realize you haven’t considered the judicial branch in the upcoming elections.
