President Trump and his SCOTUS Pick

“Judge Kavanaugh is simply the wrong nominee—even a bad nominee,” AFA President Tim Wildmon added. “Based on his written opinions, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a deficiency in a constitutional judicial philosophy of a limited judiciary. Some of his decisions may have been favorable, but several of his opinions contain problematic language.”
“By nominating Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump has delivered on his promise to choose a true defender of the Constitution. Judge Kavanaugh is a jurist with impeccable credentials, strong integrity, and a matchless commitment to interpreting the law as written. Judge Kavanaugh knows it is not the role of the Supreme Court to drive a political agenda or set policy,” said AFP-IN State Director Justin Stevens. “We hope Senator Donnelly won’t obstruct the confirmation of this nominee for political purposes and deny Americans the fully-functioning judiciary they deserve. We are ready, willing, and able to activate our grassroots army to drive the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
This past Monday night, President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice.  The two quotes above come from two emails I received shortly after President Trump announced Kavanaugh as the nominee.  The first quote comes from American Family Association President, Tim Wildman.  The second quote comes from Americans for Prosperity-Indiana Director, Justin Stevens.  I am a registered Republican, and conservative.  More importantly, I’m a Christian.  I guess you could also say that I am a big believer in the U.S. Constitution.  I struggle with this pick.  I am not a big fan of the Bush family (as in Former President George H.W. and George W., and definitely NOT a fan of Jeb.), which this pick for a lifetime seat is friends with.  Kavanaugh was a Never-Trumper.  They say he believes in the Constitution, and, if confirmed, will defend the Constitution as it’s written.  I’m not convinced.  What is funny, is that there are a select group of people that think with this pick, it’s the end of civilian life as we know it.  I don’t quite go that far. 
Both of the groups that I quoted from above encourage you to call your Senator and to say “no” to the confirmation (the AFA), or say “yes” to the confirmation (the AFP-Indiana).  I encourage you before you do that, to research Judge Brett Kavanaugh for yourself.  Get to know what he stands for, what he’s ruled in favor for, what he’s ruled against, and probably more importantly his opinion on the case.
