"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
She had worked her entire career for the ACLU, serving as its general counsel in the 1970's. She was a law professor at that liberal haven called Columbia.
She may very well be the biggest left wing nutcase in this country, and that's not an exaggeration. She ought to be tossed off the bench.
As for her comment, it's unfathomable how someone whose role is to interpret and uphold the Constitution of the United States can come out and say that another nation's constitution is somehow better. Nice to know how highly she regards the piece of law she's sworn to uphold.
I can't say I'm at all surprised, though. Just another leopard showing her spots.
The Court and Constitutional Interpretation
Here you go. To sum it up for you, her job is to interpret and uphold the constitution.
In her confirmation hearings, she did not answer questions involving matters such as abortion, gay rights, separation of church and state, and disability rights. Only one witness testified against Ginsburg at her confirmation hearings, and the hearings lasted only four days.
Upon being appointed to the Supreme Court, she has consistently legislated from the bench.
She ruled against having competent firefighters in Ricci v. DeStefano, with the rest of the court going against her.
She ruled for the abhorrent partial birth abortion practice in Gonzales v. Carhart, once again she was overruled by her fellow justices
Just to name a couple.
Let's not forget Bush vs Gore... where she tried to overturn the very will of the American people and unilaterally nominate Al Gore to be president. Luckily, she was overruled in that case as well.
In sum, she is a partisan left-wing nut.
