If so-called “swing justices” bring an element of unpredictability to the Court’s decision-making outcomes, is that a positive or negative development?  Do we want the Court to be predictable? Why or why not?

I believe “swing justices” are a positive development to the court and can be a great deciding factor when the other justices are blinded by their own personal agendas.  Presidents nominate justices who mirror their own personal values and constitutional beliefs.  If those justices are voted in, that President has just created a legacy that will last for as long as that particular justice chooses to sit on the court.  A swing justice can choose to put the politics aside and hopefully place the Constitution as their number one reason for an individual decision.

This brings me to the second question.  Do we want the court to be predictable?  I would have to say no.  I don’t want the court to always be in a conservative or liberal stance.  I think the justices should all keep an open mind and realize that the constitution evolves as society does.  I can understand how this infuriates the politicians who put them on the highest chair but I believe the American people would rather have justice than politics when it comes to SCOTUS.

President Obama finds himself in this exact position right now.  Justice Scalia needs to be replaced and the President has to deal with a Republican majority in order for his nomination to be approved.  I believe the Republicans should really take a look at Merrick Garland and strongly consider his nomination.  He’s a moderate and would probably fare better than any other option if the Democrats stay in the White House.

The modern day pioneers in battle face some challenges that included the cut of essential services threatening their social life with the other people. The pioneer fighters for the racial equality face problems like access to some social amenities. This is brought about in the criminal justice, many countries with the law supporting some minorities are not enacted and is taken to be illegal for example fight for same sex marriage may are not supported by some countries (Yalof,  Dautrich, 2013). Fight for social equality has encountered problems since some of the cultural believes act against it making people not to accept it.

The modern day pioneers of the racial equality is worth of the fight but it is not a must that it pays from their opponents. The gain in some ways does not affect the rights of the opponents but feel that the minor was left out and the gain pays to their sides. The access to the social amenities gets them an advantage and does not disadvantage the opponents. Access to education again gives them the rights to get educated and do not disadvantage the opponent in any way. They just gain the fame that is enjoyed by the affected and the minor group to come.

Racial equality will continue to be a work in progress. It has been in progress since Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King declared he had a “dream”.  No matter where a person starts life, everyone has the ability to make it big. It just has to be given lots of effort, in order to see a reward in the end.
