People talk endlessly these days about how divided Americans are, but I’m not sure I believe it. Yes, it’s true that Americans don’t much agree on politics at the moment. And we are as religiously and ethnically diverse as we’ve ever been. But what we do share, and always have, is a deep attachment to an idea of justice: one founded on freedom and equality and embodied in the US Constitution. Year in and year out, it’s that idea of justice, and that Constitution, that unites Americans.
Which is why President Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the US Supreme Court is so important. To guard our most cherished values and the law that holds us together, America needs a Supreme Court justice committed to the people’s Constitution. Neil Gorsuch is that person.
