    You had your fun, filling vacancies with characters who had more in common with Cuba than the US. Itís a cold wind blowing for libs, but what did you expect? The US will now hopefully look more like it was meant to, instead of a being led by something resembling a revolutionary workers committee.

    It's easy to undo imaginary "damage". Whoever follows trump is gonna have a much much bigger task.

    Why "interpret" when you can read? Liberals love "interpreting" what others "really" mean to say, instead of listening. Same with the constitution, why read when you can interpret, the "living constitution?

    It was all about the Court for me. I truly believed then (and now) that this Country would've taken a hard left turn -- to the point of a judiciary that would've changed the sidelines / boundary lines of American Society and law -- irrevocably. Metaphorically, sometimes you have to stop the kids from eating too much candy b/c it'll make them sick. I feel that we've saved the Republic, no matter how distasteful to some Trump may be.

    I didn’t support Obama. Stop deflecting.
