John Paul Stevens: It’s okay for justices to take politics into account when retiring

Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens said it is appropriate for justices to take the political climate into account when thinking about retirement.

“I think so,” Stevens said when asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” if it is appropriate to take politics into account when deciding to retire.

Of course Stevens would say this.  He’s a far left-wing ideological warrior whose primary concern is the destruction of the Constitution as it was written and intended, so naturally he regards that as a long-term project in which continuity of purpose is far more important than Constitutional fidelity or even simple justice.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
