A petition to guarantee Supreme Court nominees will not use foreign sources in court rulings
Recently the United States Supreme Court has begun using international law and public opinion in declaring certain laws unconstitutional. It is not within the abilities of the Supreme Court to use such information to justify rulings, especially when there is not justification within the Constitution itself.
As there is a great possibility that many on the Supreme Court will be retiring within the presidency of George W. Bush, this petition would ask the President not to appoint any Supreme Court Justice that will not take an oath to not use foreign law or public opinion as a basis for their rulings.
We, the undersigned citizens of the United States of America demand that the Supreme Court of the United States not deviate from its Constitutional boundaries. To this end we ask President George W. Bush to only appoint Supreme Court Justices that will agree to not:
*Use international law or the law of foreign governments as a basis for their rulings.
*Use public opinion as the basis for a ruling when there is a lack of Constitutional authority.
*Use anything other then the Constitution of the United States of America as the sole basis for a ruling.
