ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan, has clearly exercised moderation and “restraint” on her ambitious road to the Court (“Kagan gets Obama nod as pick for high court,” Page 1, Tuesday).

However, once confirmed by the Senate, this “trailblazing” lady will undoubtedly be on the hunt for new constitutional ground in her ideological quest to push Mr. Obama’s brand of socialism into the federal government.

Alas, it is highly disturbing that for a hundred years or more, both liberal and conservative Supreme Court justices have usurped power from the states and strayed dangerously from their sworn duty to support the Constitution and the laws pursuant to it, which is the supreme law of the land.

The makeup of the Court may be politically correct, but our Constitution was never supposed to be subjected to the injustice of being considered a “living document” to be circumvented, manipulated, altered or ignored by the Supreme Court, the federal and state judiciary or other branches of government.
