Supreme Court Justices

Overall View
What is your viewpoint on what sort of judges should be appoitned to the bench? Do you support strict constructionists who view the constitution as a set of rules that can be amended but not broken, or do you support the view that judges must show empathy and fairness ahead of strict adherence.
