Andrew Napolitano met with President-elect Trump for over an hour on the qualities the next Supreme Court Justice should maintain. We shouldn’t look past the man sitting in the room with Mr.Trump during said meeting. Mr.Napolitano is a former New Jersey superior court judge and current FoxNews senior judicial analyst. He possesses all the credentials needed to fill the vacant seat.
The Judge, as some call him, has an understanding of natural rights that is second to none. He believes our rights predate the existence of government, there for no government can legitimately take them away. An understanding of the Constitution that Jefferson and Madison would be proud of, generally interpreting from a standpoint of original intent coupled with natural law. A skeptic when it comes to foreign intervention he maintains we should only go to war when congress authorizes and declares war. An outspoken opponent of the war on drugs. Mr.Napolitano understands that drug use is a victimless crime that can only potentially hurt the user. He has called attention to the ridiculous prison population in America for victimless crimes and thinks it is a cruel and unusual direction for a supposed free country to take. In 2015 he debated former head of the NSA Michael Hayden and called the practice of collecting Americans data without a search warrant a violation of the fourth amendment.
An author of nine books you will not find a more articulate well-written potential appointee out there. If appointed to the Supreme Court his written decisions would be something all liberty loving Americans could look forward to and learn from. An advocate for personal and economic freedom he regards taxation as immoral theft. He stated, “The only truly moral commercial transaction is one that is voluntary.” Andrew Napolitano is the clear cut choice for Libertarians, Constitutionalists, and lovers of liberty alike.
