Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has the big picture right, not surprisingly. His mentor was Antonin Scalia.
Judge Gorsuch is an originalist. Like Justice Scalia, Gorsuch believes that judges should actually look at the Constitution and the Founders’ intent before interpreting what the words of the Constitution mean. Implicit in this is the rejection of the make-it-up-as-you-go-along “living, breathing constitution” drivel you hear so often from the Left. Gorsuch has said, if judges go by their personal beliefs, they are "little more than politicians with robes."
In one opinion (Cordova v. City of Albuquerque), Gorsuch wrote that:
He wrote in dissent in another case,
His fidelity to separation of powers also comes through in his sharp criticism of the Chevron doctrine in which courts give too much deference to administrative agencies that expand the scope of laws far beyond anything the legislature wrote. It has been said that Gorsuch will make his make mark reining in run-away administrative agencies.
He is also leery of run-away courts. In a dissent in a 2012 gun case, he wrote:
Finally, Gorsuch wrote a book in 2006 criticizing assisted suicide and euthanasia. The book argues that human life is intrinsically valuable and intentional killing is always wrong. Imagine that. Moral absolutes, what a refreshing notion in a world fast succumbing to post-modern gibberish.
So, whether it’s originalism, the separation of powers, or the dignity and worth of the individual, Neil Gorsuch has the big picture right and is a solid pick for the next Justice of the Supreme Court.
