A while back I sent an Email to Senator Baucus

A while back I sent an email to Senator Max Baucus

A while back I sent an email to Senator Max Baucus, which stated that they need to appoint Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.
Here is his response.

Dear Carlos :
 
Thank you for writing regarding the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this important issue, and apologize for my delayed response.
 
An appointment to the bench of the Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment. The decisions of the men and women who hold those seats have dramatic impacts on the lives of citizens in Montana and across the country. For this reason, it is important that any nominee for a position on the court be carefully reviewed.
 
The Senate has a constitutional duty to give our advice and consent on all Supreme Court nominees. I take that duty very seriously. I think it is of the utmost importance that a Supreme Court justice nominee demonstrates that he or she will interpret the law in a balanced manner, and have a background free of ethical concerns.
 
Judge Samuel Alito's nomination presented serious concerns for many senators. After meeting him personally, I was concerned that he was not the right choice for Montana and America . His views on the increasing power of the executive branch in the federal system and the right to privacy made it clear to me that he was outside the mainstream.
 
I believe that Judge Alito is a competent, intelligent and ethical man, but he was just not consistent enough when discussing his views with me. Any nominee for the Supreme Court must meet the highest possible standards, and in my opinion, Judge Alito did not.

 
Thank you again for getting in touch with me; it is always good to hear from folks back home. Feel free to contact me with any additional concerns you might have.
 
With best personal regards, I am

This was a nice letter… but it seemed to me a little out of touch… Here is my response.

Senator Max Baucus,
 
With all due respect... It seems you are a little out of touch with us "folks at home"....
He was and is one of the most respectable and able appointees. It seems that the Democrats have lost sight of who they really serve. It seems to not be us "the folks at home" but rather another agenda were "so called leaders" like Ted Kennedy are making a mockery of who the Democrats are. As one of the "folks", I am tired of the games being played. I want leadership not egomaniacs who only want to make a name for themselves.
 
You may want to get back to your roots and separate yourself from what most folks at home are calling idiots.
 
Sincerely,
Carlos Shelton

When someone is standing in manure and begins to toss it at me... I could care less about the flies. I hope he will step off of his pompous pile of manure and really get back to "us home folks".

blessings,

Right ON,Carlos.I used to be,and vote,democrat.But the dems,and lots of the repubs have lost their vision for the people they are supposed to represent,and gone soooo far afield in their own desires(usually for their own fame),and the NEED to be re-elected,that they will adopt anything to further their postions of power.Ted Kennedy and his cohort Barney Frank,are prime examples of going astray from their sworn duties,to represent "THE PEOPLE".
Have a good day sir.
