Letter: Destructive liberals

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

In the July 1 Sunday Monitor, Katy Burns wrote a column reflecting on America’s birthday. She speaks of retiring justice Anthony Kennedy as the “sole impediment to the total domination of the court by a cabal of 18th-century-worshipping jurists.”

Extremely strong language. “Cabal” is defined by Webster’s as “a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or authority.” Give me a break. The conservatives on the Supreme Court simply recognize that the Constitution is the basic foundational law of the United States. Too many liberals think that it is obsolete, antiquated, no longer valid. That philosophy has nearly ruined this great nation.
