When trust is broken, whether it be a personal or business relationship, it is very difficult for it to be restored. Many times it is arduous work on both parties and many times impossible.
I can’t imagine the broken trust between Supreme Court Justices, Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Kennedy by Chief Justice John Roberts. Try to place yourselves in their positions. A man, who by all accounts, voted with them to strike down the individual mandate and perhaps the whole law, changed his vote at the last moment. The last moment. Credible information has surfaced this is exactly what happened. How do you trust a man or woman like that? Do you question their integrity? Do you question their fortitude? Does Roberts think it will be forgotten?
As a citizen, I will NEVER trust Chief Justice John Roberts again. He stated he was a strict constructionist concerning our Constitution. That is not true. Either he out-and-out lied or caved under pressure. He appears to be a political animal like the liberals on the court. This is the third disappointment given to us by Republican presidents. John Paul Stevens was a disaster, Souter who gave away private property rights was a disaster, and now John Roberts who, for all intense and purposes, placed an IED under the Constitution is a disaster. There is no disaster relief agency or emergency services to repair the damage. The Democrats and progressives are laughing at the GOP and their choice man who they were able to turn.
Trust is a precious commodity. It is a pearl among relationships. In our most difficult days, it is those we trust whom we call, or visit for counsel or comfort. Trusting in man, this man in particular, is in vain. I believe this scripture is one we need to consider.
Psalm 146:3 (NKJV)
3 Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.
If a man’s decisions are not thought through in the first instance, then he is unstable. When it affects the lives of millions of people it is close to criminal.
John Roberts cannot be trusted. I would hate listening to arguments for the sake of rendering a just opinion while sitting next to this man knowing he cannot be trusted. This smacks of the same intellectual dishonesty of John Kerry when in his infamous words, “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”
Then again we have to ask ourselves. Are we to blame for this? Maybe not directly, yet in our attitudes we are. We look to politicians, political parties, and other institutions of men to make us feel secure and that justice for those governed will prevail. It has not been so in history and it is certainly not so in America. We are given an admonition in the book of Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 17:5 (NKJV)
5 Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. “
Good men and women are hard to find. Even they can slip; however, a servant of the people and this nation’s Constitution doesn’t have that luxury. If an irreparable mistake is made, you have denied those principles you vowed to uphold and have set up a tyranny that will imprison our children forever.
We can’t trust the Republican candidates for the Supreme Court. We can’t trust you Chief Justice John Roberts. That is now your legacy.
I truly feel for the men who will be in that court room in October. They now know Roberts can’t be trusted. He makes decisions like a man toss to and fro by winds and no anchor of principle to hold him. What an arduous job it will be for them here on out.
IT’S A MATTER OF TRUST.
