    Just checking... your previous comment seem to be a summary judgement.

    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.
    I am not now nor ever have been a so called 'Left wing Nut Job'.
    But I most strongly advise that it is in the best interests of the USA Supreme Court to have a reasonable balance of opinions.
    Too many Left wing Nut Jobs leads to rubber stamping of Government edicts thus Communism.
    Too many Right Wing Nut jobs leads to rubber stamping of Government Edicts thus National Socialism.
    Best to have Supreme Court that can accommodate both viewpoints, at least that way the USA stands a 1 in 9 chance of having one sane sensible opinion.

    That was a 5-4 decision. Stevens, Souter, and Breyer ruled with her. Should they be removed from the court also?

    Once again you are dangerously incorrect. That also was a 5-4 decision, with the same parties ruling in dissent (Ginsburg, Stevens, Souter, and Breyer). Are you sure that you don't want all four removed from the court?

    Wow! You've won the propaganda trifecta! (another 5-4 decision, with the same dissenters, and a bald faced lie about the facts of the case).

    To answer your question bluntly, yes, all activist judges should be removed.

    And I don't see how her stating that the U.S. Constitution may be a poor form of government inherently invalidates her from being a Supreme Court Justice.

    Because if that's the case then the fact that conservatives are against government powers and services should invalidate Republicans from being elected to political offices.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Maybe not that fact in itself, but the body of her work is certainly disturbing.

    Think about what that comment says about her. It says that the very law she is supposedly dedicating her life to uphold and interpret for us... she doesn't believe is exceptional.

    By its very nature, her statement suggests that she would like to see changes to our constitution.

    Are you surprised that there is an uproar over this? A Supreme Court justice should not want to change the constitution. This is not their job. Their job is to read it, uphold it, and interpret it.
