US Congressman Spongebob Squarepants

On The Issues

Squarepants believes a strong national defense is imperative to maintain the valuable land and unity that preserves American values and beliefs.


He also believes government regulation of the market economy is necessary to preserve the value of the working class. This will also reduce environmental destruction by large, disconnected corporations.


He hopes to tackle major environmental issues such as illegal dumping and the continued release of harmful toxins into the environment.


He is currently in the natural resources committee overseeing the subcommittee on water, power, and oceans.


"I will work diligently to maintain the active role I play in my community and continue to be mindful of the desires of my constituents. Although Bikini Bottom is only an offshore US territory, our prime location makes environmental issues of the utmost importance. Also, because I will continue to work for the Krusty Krab and as an active union member."

Supreme Court Justice Mary's Mother

Big image

Background

She earned a B.A. in 1847 from Princeton University, graduating summa cum laude. In 1851, she earned a J.D. from Yale Law School where she served as an editor of the Yale Law Journal. She became a law professor, first at the University of Chicago Law School and later at Harvard Law School. She also served for four years in the Obama Administration as Associate Counsel to the President and then as Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. Between 2003 and 2009, she served as the Dean of Bikini Bottom Boating School.

Philosophy

Mary's Mother is a loose constructionist and wants the Constitution to act as a living document would lead her to be extremely liberal on the issues. The Constitution must adapt to new circumstances. With our current day society we must address issues that were not apparent to the founding fathers when it was written 220+ years ago. In her own words, "What?"

Cases

Obergefell v. Hodges, 2015

While Mary's Mother may be aged, she still recognizes the sanctity of marriage and how that union should be extended to all citizens. This decision legalized same-sex marriage across all 50 states and is a decision that Mary's Mother supports.


Shelby County v. Holder, 2013

Suffrage is the heart of any democracy, therefor this case ruling that states do not need federal approval to change voting laws is not one Mary's Mother approves of. This is worse than chocolate as historically states have used their own laws to unlawfully discriminate and prevent citizens from exercising this right, (5-4 decision)


Roe v. Wade, 1973

Mary's Mother would like to continue to protect women's reproductive right and allow women the right to an abortion during the first two trimesters. She's not "Pro-Abortion", but is very Pro-Choice and in support of providing safe, legal abortions.


Mary's Mother's judicial philosophy would be reflected in each case by her desire for a strong national government that protects the rights of its citizens.
