BARRETT AND THE REAL ISSUE

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 23,2020

         IF ALL GOES AS PLANNED JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT WILL BE NARROWLY CONFIRMED FOR A SEAT ON THE SUPREME COURT NEXT WEEK. DEMOCRATS BOYCOTTED THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE VOTE YESTERDAY, SOMETHING REPUBLICANS HAVE NEVER DONE.

         THAT AND A COLUMN IN YESTERDAY’S NEW YORK TIMES REVEALS WHAT THE STAKES ARE FOR THE COURT AND THE COUNTRY. THE COLUMN WAS TITLED “BARRETT’S DANGEROUS PHILOSOPHY,” BY WHICH THE WRITER MEANS THREE THINGS: HER FAITH, WHICH HAS BEEN DENIGRATED, HER CONSERVATISM AND HER ADHERENCE TO THE WORDS OF THE CONSTITUTION. IN OTHER WORDS, SHE DOES NOT MAKE LAW AS LIBERAL JURISTS OFTEN DO TO FIT THEIR OWN PHILOSOPHY AND WORLDVIEW.

         AS WITH OTHER ELECTIONS SINCE THE 1960S WE ARE AGAIN FACED WITH A CHOICE BETWEEN A NATION RULED BY SECULAR PROGRESSIVES AND ONE RULED BY CONSERVATIVES, MANY OF WHOM PUT THEIR FAITH IN GOD, NOT IN WASHINGTON.

         IF POLITICIANS COULD FIX THE PROBLEMS THEY CLAIM THEY WILL FIX NOW, WHY HAVEN’T THEY DONE SO BEFORE? WE ARE $27 TRILLION IN DEBT AND COUNTING. BETTER PRAY GOD WILL FORGIVE US OF OUR SINS AND SEND A REVIVAL. THAT IS OUR ONLY HOPE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
