    Supreme Court justice: U.S. Constitution inferior



    One member of the U.S. Supreme Court, whose members are sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States, says she would look elsewhere – Canada, South Africa and Europe – should she be tasked with writing a constitution now.

    The stunning statements come from Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    She was being interviewed by Al Hayat in Egypt, which is trying to develop a government after citizens deposed longtime dictator President Hosni Mubarack last year.

    Egypt is facing major obstacles to a democratic form of government as the Muslim Brotherhood as a political party has been assembling a majority in the country. Among its goals is a Muslim caliphate worldwide.

    She was asked: “Would your honor’s advice be to get a part or other countries’ constitutions as a model, or should we develop our own draft?

    Her response:

    “You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone on since the end of World War II. I would not look to the U.S. constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.

    By now I assume you recognize me as a fairly conservative minded person, but even I can't fault Ruthy for her comment. She didn't use the term "inferior", the author did.

    She does offer this: "a constitution will mean nothing unless the people it serves and protects desire liberty and freedom.

    “If the people don’t care, then the best constitution in the world won’t make any difference..."

    John Adams said that the Constitution was written for a moral and religous people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. As we become amoral and non-religious, the Constitution is less and less adquate for our needs.

    The Constitution is inapplicable to a people who wish to be governed by a dictator.

    I won't defend the title, I didn't write it. But my problem with her is it's her job to uphold OUR constitution, so if she thinks it's not as good as other constitutions, which I would term "inferior," then she has no business as a Supreme Court Justice sworn to uphold it. I think it clearly indicates that she has problems with it, which in turn would influence her decision making by way of bias when she rules on it. I think she should either retire or be impeached.

    A person working for one large company surely wouldn't go onto the world and proclaim how inferior their company was to others, AND STILL HAVE HIS JOB.

    Then leave. Move to one of these other countries with a LESS moral constitution, so you can peddle your immoral, heathen crap there.

    The Constitution is perfectly fine the way it is. It just doesn't apply to what liberals want to make of this country. We have a significant percentage of individuals who would rather be governed by a democrat dicatator and one party rule. The Constitution can't govern a people with those kinds of aspirations.

    She's being pragmatic. There are 8 other Justices and I don't think her comments, as they pertain to the question, threaten our Constitution. Nor does it diminish her ability to uphold it.

    You can run with this how you like, I just don't think it's a damning proclamation of her abilities to do her job.

    I do. She is expressing an opinion that she believes our Constitution is not applicable to the modern world, a Constitution she is sworn to uphold. She should be impeached.

    Either I'm missing something or you folks are reading too much into this.
    I think it's a little of both.
