"In a 2005 article published by National Review, Gorsuch argued that “American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom, relying on judges and lawyers rather than elected leaders and the ballot box, as the primary means of effecting their social agenda" and that they are "failing to reach out and persuade the public". Gorsuch wrote that, by relying on judges instead of elected officials and the ballot box to enact their agenda, American liberals are circumventing the democratic process on issues like gay marriage, school vouchers, and assisted suicide, and this has led to a compromised judiciary, which is no longer independent. Gorsuch wrote that American liberals' "overweening addiction" to using the courts for social debate is "bad for the nation and bad for the judiciary"."

[I only desist from using "liberals" in this meaning (however widespread it is), instead of correct "left totalitarians".]

вот меня тоже очень злит, когда не по делу употребляют термин 'либерализм". Ведь в его основе лежит слово "свобода", да. Я бы предпочла, чтобы придерживались этого нового термина - "Прогрессивные". Как я никогда не устаю напоминать, это прогрессивные танки были на улицах по настоящему либеральной Праги.

Да, типичная история краденой идентичности.
Впрочем, это лишь примечание, в предмете же кандидат в Верховный Суд.
