McConnell Bears Responsibility for Mistrusting the Supreme Court

McConnell Bears Responsibility for Mistrusting the Supreme Court

In a Gallup poll in 2019, only 37% of Americans identified as ideologically conservatives. But don’t tell that to Mitch McConnell who gutted the Supreme Court with ultra conservative judges that ill represent the American public. This has led to a grave mistrust of the court to the point of calling it a “dangerous cabal“. McConnell bears responsibility for our mistrust in the Supreme Court because the court does not represent the views of the American people with six sitting ultra conservative judges as opposed to only three liberals.

This is leading us down the path of more divisive politics, and more skepticism towards every branch of our government now to include the previously immune Supreme Court.

The meaning of democracy rests on the notion that a majority wins over a minority.

THE FILIBUSTER FAULT LINE

The day the Senate stripped the majority vote from exercising its rights under the guidance of a pluralistic foundation was the day the Republican Party impaired our democracy. The filibuster is nothing but an illegal rule to give the minority a majority control.

Mind you, in every country in the world 54 votes usually win over 35 votes except in America.

In most developed countries of the world, their court systems mirror the ideological spectrum of the population except in America where 37% of the conservative American people have the right to 67% of the votes in any supreme court rulings.

The likes of Mitch McConnell are killing our democratic system of government slowly by embedding mistrust in our institutions. Unless we do away with the filibuster in the Senate, the country will remain on edge as more and more branches of our government become less representative of the people and their views.

The meaning of democracy rests on the notion that a majority wins over a minority.

However, unbeknownst to many, Mitch McConnell, as much as Donald Trump, is softly undermining our democracy and its institutions by giving the conservatives more power than their voters have the right for. This leaves the majority of the country feeling helpless in the face of this slaughter.

Not only is the Supreme Court not representative of the masses in its present choice of judges, but McConnell has introduced a religious element to pollute their opinions impacting politics and the social order established through the power of a majority.

THE CREDIBILITY OF THE SUPREME COURT IS IN PLAY

Ever since Donald Trump became President and was able to appoint three Supreme Court justices during his one term in office, he, with help from Mitch McConnell, created a social imbalance that ill represents the people across this land.

This imbalance reared its bias on September 1 when the Supreme Court refused to hear the case involving the new Texas abortion law. It rendered no opinion, just a shrug to a law that is illegal if one considers the Supreme Court’s own Roe Vs. Wade historical opinion.

Everyone now knows that abortion rights are at risk. Partially because of ideological difference, but most importantly, and very few discuss this issue openly, because of religious differences.

For a country that boasts separation of state and church as enshrined in its Constitution, Mitch McConnell’s choices for Supreme Court appointees has fused politics to religion; thus blurring the line most liberals in this country fear might collapse the order our Forefathers — mainly Jefferson and Madison — set in play to protect the country from religion undermining politics.

But don’t try and explain this concept to McConnell who pissed on the Constitution the moment he selected two distinct appointees whose religion disqualifies abortion as a pillar of its construct.

Not only is the Supreme Court not representative of the masses in its present choice of judges, but McConnell has introduced a religious element to pollute their opinions impacting politics and the social order established through the power of a majority.

Anyone calling to expand SCOTUS to 11 or 13 judges might be right. Behind their choice lurks the need to create a social balance that McConnell is slowly dismantling.
