Justice Gorsuch Tells Americans to ‘Look Elsewhere’ If They Don’t Have ‘Great Confidence’ in the US

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch is asking those Americans who are questioning their confidence in the country, “Where else would you rather be?”

During an interview with CNN, the Supreme Court justice rejected the idea that the additional conservative judges on the court would create a “hard right turn.”

“I just don’t view judges that way,” he said, adding, “I reject that idea of how judges operate.”

“About half, 40 percent, of our cases are decided unanimously. We talked about the 5-4 cases, they make up a quarter of our docket, maybe a third. Those numbers have been consistent since the second world war. The only thing that’s new is that nothing is new.”

Additionally, Gorsuch — who was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed in 2017 — shared his devotion to the country by expressing how confident he was in the U.S. He also told those who question their confidence in the country to “look elsewhere” they’d rather be.

“This country has been through a lot of challenges and always risen resiliently to them. Whether it’s the civil rights movement, surviving through our Civil War or today’s challenges. Whatever they may be, I’ve got great confidence in America and I say to those who don’t: ‘Look elsewhere. Where else would you rather be?'”

Watch Gorsuch’s interview below:

Although confident in the U.S., Gorsuch — who wrote “A Republic, If You Can Keep It” published on Tuesday — recently discussed with Fox News about his worries for future of the country.

He said during the interview, “Republics have a checkered history in our history books, and we need to make sure that the people know how to run their own government.”

“I am concerned on the civics front when I read that about a third of Americans can’t name the three branches of government,” Gorsuch added. “60% apparently would fail the American naturalization examination — that worries me.”

Can we just multiply Gorsuch times 9 and have that be our Supreme Court. A consummate libertarian originalist.

I’m wondering if Justice Gorsuch had the kneeling NFL players in mind. They’re obviously unhappy with the American millions they make; their limited “work” (if you want to call it “work”) schedule and their treatment liked royalty; yet are applauded for showing their disrespect for the National Anthem and the flag.

How many Americans have renounced their citizenship under Trump compared to #44, #43 or #42 and moved out of the USA?

God Bless America. ‘Love it leave it’, to use an old adage.

I never really get that argument. Just because other countries are worse off than US does not mean Americans are not allowed to have concerns about their own country.

Gorsuch poses a question which cuts to the heart of matters. Everyone has complaints, but if you really dislike the way the country OR the way it is, then where would you go? Especially if you don’t get your way to reshape it in your image.

“I’m taking my ball and going home.” How childish and lacking of coping skills. It reminds me of the virtue-signaling poseurs who threaten to leave if things don’t go their way but never follow through. Please do.

Gorsuch should be more concerned that a seated member of Congress can’t name the “three chambers” of government. Not just for her ignorance, but that idiot voters (mostly affluent whites in her district) elected this unaccomplished nitwit to represent them.

Aren’t they at all embarrassed? Clearly “buyer’s remorse” is not part of their make-up so long as the nitwit matches their ideology.
