Justice Ginsburg follows the liberal view that the Constitution is a “living” or “evolving” document and should be updated from time to time. She is well beyond her “use by” date and hopefully will retire soon.
Via Daily Caller:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed support for abolishing the Electoral College during remarks at Stanford University Monday night.
Ginsburg gave the Rathbun Lecture on a Meaningful Life at Stanford Memorial Church with Rev. Professor Jane Shaw, dean for religious life, where she was asked which constitutional provisions should “evolve with the society.”
“Well, some things I would like to change, one is the electoral college,” she said, to rapturous applause. “But that would require a constitutional amendment. Amending our constitution is powerfully hard to do, as I know from the struggle for the Equal Rights Amendment, which fell three state shy [of passage].”
The justice’s forays into politics have troubled court-watchers in the past. Her blunt critiques of President Donald Trump during last year’s general election were roundly condemned, leading Ginsburg to apologize.
