US Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg: South Africa has a better Constitution model than US.
Patroit Action Network ^ | 2/4/2012 | Darla Dawald

Posted on 02/04/2012 2:17:13 PM PST by antidemoncrat

US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg tells Egyptians: Don’t look to the “OLD US Constitution” for guidance in drafting a new constitution. Justice Ginsburg holds in high esteem the constitution of South Africa and Canada.

From WND:http://www.wnd.com/2001/08/10256/ "The killing of white Afrikaner farmers in South Africa is intensifying, as members of the ethnic minority attempt to draw international attention to their plight."

I wonder if their constitution allows this. I will gladly pay for a one way ticket for Ginsberg to emigrate to whatever country she would like to park her sorry a$$ in where she could dispense her great wisdom to whoever would bother to listen to her. One condition: If she takes me up on this off, she can't come back.

This from a moron on the Supreme Court who holds our lives in the balance ruling on that very Constitution she despises.

Don’t worry Ruthie, in another year or so, Egypt won’t be worrying about ANY “Constitution” once the Islamist lunatics take over completely.

The major flaw in our Constitution is that those who get to decide what it means don’t bother to read the actual words. Ginsberg has a point, what little she knows of our Constitution is not terribly impressive.

It shows great insight into her thinking as she interprets our Constitution. “Human rights,” as she understands it, does not mean what our Founders meant. It probably includes “homosexual rights,” and “women’s rights,” but probably not freedom of religion as Madison, for instance, understood that. Probably it is even different from the UN Declaration of Rights from 1948.

Via MEMRI TV, skip ahead to 9:28. I’m actually sort of charmed that a left-wing jurist thinks it matters much what’s written in a nation’s constitution. Our Supreme Court managed to tease a right to abortion out of a clause governing legal procedure, didn’t it? Seventy years earlier, a right-wing Court teased a right of contract out of the same provision. If you can do that, there ain’t much you can’t do. In fact, we’re on the cusp right now of Congress being granted a new power to force Americans to buy certain products; the clause responsible for that, which...

Less and less do liberal conceal their opinion that the Constitution is outworn, that the mechanism of government it established now hinders them in which they want to do. I am reminded of the actions of Charles I in the 16th Century, who wanted to establish a “modern” monarchy, like that of France, where the king ruled “without Estates.” The king’s supporters scoffed at Chief Justice Coke’s invocation of the coronation and magna carta. Surely, they said everyone knew that
restraints on the king put the country at a disadvantage.

True-—Liberals are indoctrinated and unable to reason—use logic. It is why people always think they are mentally ill.

They don’t understand the nature of man-—they live in a reality where utopianism can exist on earth if ONLY they can change the nature of man and indoctrinate the children starting at birth—destroying all our traditions and rewriting history and destroy Christian Ethics—forcing immorality-—sodomy is “good”. The only problem is their ideas demand we all become as free as a termite colony.

In their reality—they define every aspect of what we are allowed to think——all cultures are equal, Good is evil is good, government is god and gives us all our rights, women are interchangeable with men and babies do not need a loving mother to become emotionally healthy human beings. Fathers are unnecessary although most pathologies are caused by lack of loving father.

I would say that four of nine think it’s a bad model. One of nine isn’t sure and thinks he can improve it a lot by tinkering with it here and there.

For all these years, this silly beeeotch has been getting paid to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Doesn’t her proclamation of distaste for the U.S Constitution amount to an admission that she has been motivated to undermine the Constitution during her years of work as a Supreme Court Justice? Up to this point, “loose constructionists” have at least claimed to be committed to work within Constitutional limits.

Ginsberg was confirmed for her Supreme Court appointment by a Senate vote of 96 to 3. Only Jessie Helms, Don Nicles, and Robert Smith voted no. The rest of the Republican Senators! Including current minority leader Mitch McConnell voted for confirmation.

It would be interesting to contrast these comments about the U.S. constitution with Judge Ginsburg's comments about the same document during her Senate confirmation hearing.

Presumably, she was asked about the Constitution. Wasn't she...???

The Constitution requires every officer of government in this country, at every level, in every branch, to swear to support the Constitution.

The often-overlooked Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment disqualifies those from holding office who have been found to be in rebellion against that Constitution.

She clearly qualifies.

Sadly, so does does almost everyone else now holding public office.
