Judge Kavanaugh Confirmed

According to Judge Kavanaugh has been confirmed to be the next Justice of the Supreme Court.

While I am conservative, strangely enough I did not want Brett Kavanaugh on the court because he is "conservative," but because I expect he will decide cases based on an originalist interpretation of the Constitution.  Had leftists not created the idea of a "living Constitution" that changed meanings every time a leftist fad popped up, we would not have needed to have this fight.

Interestingly, the Constitution has been amended 27 times.  It is not impossible, merely difficult.  The amendment process was designed to be difficult to ensure that it was not amended lightly, or because a mob has temporarily overwhelmed the majority before it has had time to make up its mind.  An originalist believes that if we want to change the Constitution, it should be amended rather than have some Justice peer between the lines at the emanations of the penumbras, perhaps had consulted the entrails of goats, and come up with a amendment by interpretation.

It will be interesting to see how Kavanagh changes the Court.
