    President Barack Obama has nominated an individual to the United States Supreme Court who shares his belief that the Constitution is a living document, supports abortion, and who will manipulate the Constitution in order to reshape America.

    Elena Kagan shares Obama’s liberal judicial and political philosophies and has been a his longtime political supporter. Appointments such as this, where the President’s appointment is based on favoritism and friendship rather than the experience and qualifications of the nominee, are precisely why we called for the withdrawal of Harriet Miers when she was nominated by George W. Bush. It is also why the Founding Fathers placed a check on the President’s power of appointment, requiring the advice and consent of the Senate.

    This advice and consent process is incredibly important and as Kagan has stated, Supreme Court nominees should endure tough hearings, where nominees are asked questions regarding their positions on issues, ideology, and judicial philosophy. Kagan should specifically be asked about her previous writings and statements, including those in which she lauds socialism, is willing to restrict free speech, is hostile towards the military and religion, supports abortion, and particularly where she states that the Constitution
    is “defective,” contains “outdated notions,” and attributes “our modern Constitution” to liberal Justice Thurgood Marshall, de-emphasizing the role of the Founding Fathers who drafted the document.

    Senators should also make Elena Kagan reveal her judicial philosophy that elevates international and transnational law over American law.
