My, but that makes me regretfully, resentfully wistful. (I need my sarcasm font, here.) Had American practiced some eugenics a bit back -- I can't help but think the last election would have been different.
I mean, they DID advocate putting down mouth breathers, right?
Gorsuch's first and most important test as a justice will come within the first 18-36 months of his tenure, when the Congressional attempt to remove Trump from office comes before the court. Thus, all of the social justice and abortion stuff are secondary here. The question is, does this guy have the stones to vote against the guy who appointed him? I'm no legal scholar, but my gut says yes, he does. Meaning that this guy is better than the majority of the others on the Federalist Society list.
The Supreme Court has no role in unseating an elected President. The Chief Justice presides in the Senate Trial but his rulings are appealable to the Body. Impeachment and removal for disability are the exclusive province of the Congress.
Sorry, Lless, but in the U.S. in 2017 or 2018, when the impeachment or 25th Amendment-based Congressional attempt to remove Trump from office comes, there is very little chance that the Supreme Court will not take it upon itself to weigh in in some fashion. Remember, this is the same group that threw out the entire concept of state control of election mechanics in 2000, and told us to ignore the case and never cite to or mention it ever again. Also, quite possible that Trump once the attacks begin will be the one who brings the matter to the courts. That's where he always runs.
