Shut it down?

On Saturday, leftist protesters were pounding on the doors of the Sumpreme Court building, screaming “Shut it down!” Really?

Thank goodness our forefathers had the foresight nearly 230 years ago to develop and draft the United States Constitution to protect the rights of its citizens and states.
    It’s hard to comprehend the vision they had to draft a timeless document that is just as applicable today as it was in 1789. The framers rightly separated the balance and power into three distinct branches—executive, legislative and judicial.
    The power of the Constitution was on clear display during the hearings and subsequent swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh as the newest member of the United States Supreme Court.
    As several Republican members of the U.S. Senate reminded their Democratic colleagues—elections have consequences. In this case, it meant the Republicans would have the votes to put a conservative justice on the Supreme Court bench.
    Since then, the lunacy of the left has been on full display. (Actually it was on display long before then.) On Saturday, leftist protesters were pounding on the doors of the Sumpreme Court building, screaming “Shut it down!” Really?
    The vote on Kavanaugh didn’t go they way the left wanted so they want to shut down the Supreme Court? Again, thank goodness for the foresight of our forefathers to keep the three branches of government separate but also in check.
