Send Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

Do you want something to do on a cold February afternoon?  Write a letter to a Senator and ask him to support Judge Neil Gorsuch.  If you need help starting your letter, there is a sample below.  Google his cases and read more about them.

 

 Dear Senator:

 

I write to urge you to support a swift confirmation for Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States.

 

Judge Gorsuch is qualified, experienced, and respects the Constitution. Much like the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Judge Gorsuch believes that judges should follow the law as it is written – as opposed to using it to advance a narrow political or personal agenda. In Cordova v. City of Albuquerque, he wrote, “Our job is interpreting the Constitution…a carefully drafted text judges are charged with applying according to its original public meaning.”

 

Judge Gorsuch has warned about the dangers of government overreach, including by the courts. In 2013, he wrote: “It is an irony of the law that either too much or too little can impair liberty. Our aim here has to be for a golden mean.”

 

Judge Gorsuch has proven to be a competent jurist since being confirmed in 2006 without opposition to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. There is no reason why Judge Gorsuch should be denied either a hearing or confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

 

I urge you to expedite a fair hearing for Judge Gorsuch and confirm him to the Supreme Court in a clean but thorough process. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

You are not limited to the number of Senators you write to and they don't just have to be from New Jersey.
