    Greetings Congressman Fleischmann and Senators Corker and Alexander. As a constituent of your respective districts and the state of Tennessee as a whole, I implore you all to reject endorsing or supporting any of President Trump's SCOTUS nominee selections to fill the void left by the death of Anthony Scalia. None of these men or women chosen truly exemplify a clear conscience and would subsequently threaten the sanctity and clarity of the Supreme Courts' true purpose in American democracy; to "interpret" the law, not mandate it from a point of personal opinion or sentiment. These nominees clearly exemplify a long and tenuous track record of denying equality, freedom and personal liberties which are entitled to all Americans under our constitution. They possess a track record of discriminating, marginalizing and disenfranchising based upon creed, national origin, race, sexual orientation, and other demographic factors. Through all of this I must stress and emphasize to you the sanctity the 14th Amendment of our Constitution states "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within it's jurisdiction I the equal protection of the laws." In short gentlemen, I must stress to you all the necessity that "equal protection of the laws" is a guaranteed right entitled to "all" Americans in the Constitution and that to deprive any citizens of such entitlement is a travesty and a detriment to the endeavors our forefathers, our framers and following leaders swore their "lives, fortunes and sacred honor to uphold". America is a land of opportunity, but our forefathers firmly believed in the vision that such opportunity should be "shared" and "equal" for all who have come to our shores to earn the right to call themselves Americans. Congressman and Senator(s), I call upon you all as one of your constituents to reject these nominees and invest your efforts in compromising and working "with" Democrats in the House and Senate as well as President Trump respectively to find candidates for the Supreme Court who will interpret the law and cases which subsequently come before them with the rights of "all" Americans in mind and not merely some. I trust, hope and pray that you will make decisions beneficial to the well-being and tranquility for all American citizens. -Nicholas John Grenier, Chattanooga, TN
