I would gladly accept any nomination given to me, however, I refuse to just sit here and discuss my politics, as the purpose of the Supreme Court is to ensure the Constitution is followed, not a ground for the president to place his buddies.

Is your view of the constitution strictly consistent with the framers' intentions?

No, the Constitution of the United States is a document that must be interpreted for modern times, in my eyes, interpreting it is one of the purposes of the Supreme Court.

My goal has been to make a balanced judicial and executive branch yes I have "buddies" in some positions but I also have people I disagree with because I feel they were best for the job and my goal

I have much respect for your decisions, which are unlike the decisions our "actual politicians" often make.

Mr. President, I would like to be nominated for Associate Justice, I am a moderate conservative with support from both sides, a republican leader, Steve Z supports me, and liberal justice Bethany says I would have her full support if nominated.

And as I have said before, in order to make sure I am bipartisan, if my approval rating drops below 40% I will resign

Hmm, that wasn't really the question. Let me reword it: How do you see it in terms of the balance of power?

I think we should live by the constitution and make sure that all laws comply with it.

11/04/13 6:59 pm

Do you view the constitution as set in stone during its creation and during the creation of each amendment or that it is a modern document that needs interpretation?

The Constitution was designed to be followed. If we run into a dilemma worthy of making an amendment in order to further the original intent, then that should be done. But the original document needs to be followed.

I would like to be considered, I live my life by two documents The United States Constitution and The Holy Bible.

Between this and the 9-10th amendments, do you think many of today's federal laws are constitutional?

Do you believe in a strict or loose interpretation of the constitution.

Zackisan VC Member
11/04/13 4:08 pm

Mostly strict, especially with the Bill of Rights, but I do recognize that some parts of the Constitution are somewhat ambiguous and open for growth/change

Zackisan VC Member

No that's not what I meant by that. I meant some parts of the Constitution were left ambiguous to allow for the growth and change of our country.

I stay relatively strict to the constitution. My comfort would be to practice judicial restraint but most of my hypothetical rulings would be case by case similar to that of current Justice Anthony Kennedy.
