The man who occupies the Oval Office has nominated to the Supreme Court a political hack with no experience, and there are five Republicans in the Senate who are going to allow your citizenship to be devalued by voting for Elena Kagan. Maine Republicans Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, New Hampshire's Judd Gregg, Indiana's Richard Lugar, and South Carolina's Lindsey Graham have said they will vote for Kagan. If these Senators of questionable judgment were to stick with the Party line, Kagan would be rejected. But rather, the Republicans have done little or nothing to prevent this travesty of immense proportions. In fact, Graham could have stopped Kagan in committee if he had voted against her.
From illegal immigration to abortion to so-called marriage between homosexuals to gun control to socialism to support for the military, Kagan has proven to be against the Constitution. Kagan has unethically influenced decisions when she was a political hack in the Clinton Administration. Columnist Robert Knight says, "She falsified a physicians' group's document on partial-birth abortion to reflect her own view instead of theirs - and submitted it to the Supreme Court as evidence. This is fraud, plain and simple." How can someone of such questionable ethical and moral character become a member of the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court?
Because people who have been elected to office - including the Presidency and the Senate - share the same character. The Founding Fathers were clear about the need for virtuous and moral leaders. John Adams said,
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."These wise men knew that the only way to secure a prosperous nation was to have virtuous leaders, a principle found in Exodus 18:21,
"Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens."When America has leaders who are willing to compromise sound and proven ethics and morals, then the nation falls into despair. Proverbs 29:2 says,
"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."And Proverbs 14:34 says,
"Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."Much of America's leadership is sinful, unethical and lacks virtue. This is the reason why an Elena Kagan can be approved by the Senate to the highest court of the land. This is the reason why homosexuality is rampant, socialism is entrenching, and Biblical values are considered hateful and judgmental. But then again, who elected these leaders?
