A lot of people have brought up the fact that they won’t vote for Trump if he’s the eventual nominee. I just want to put something in perspective…
Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant. Ginsberg is 82 years old, Kennedy is 79, Breyer is 77, and Thomas is 67. Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75. These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.
Think about that… 7-2. If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are seemed to be lacking in mandate.
Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.
Everyone saying that they won’t vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this: If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another Conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever.
If you are a Conservative, a vote for anyone BUT the GOP nominee, whomever that will be (or a vote for no one), is a vote for Hillary Clinton.
The truth of the matter is, that it should not make any difference who the president is when it comes to the Supreme Court. Justice is supposed to be blind. They interpret the Constitution as it is and apply the laws accordingly. When however a country is ruled by activist judges as we have now. We have a problem.
Your children will pay the price for our mistakes if we pick another liberal who wants to transform our country into a third world country.
Vote as if the future of the country depends upon it.
Whoever the GOP puts up there has to be the one that wins. We know Hillary’s history and we know what she has said that she will do. With the power of activist judges on the supreme court, she could pull it off leaving Americans defenseless against the rising tide of aggression from those that would seek to harm us.
If you happen to not like whoever the candidate is for the conservative party, hold your nose and vote anyway. Many went to war and died for their country and many of those did not want to go. Suck it up and do the right thing!
