    Why Democrats are right to worry about potential Kavanaugh appointment

    This time, Trump Derangement Syndrome is getting a bad rap. Paranoids have real enemies and leftists whose heads are exploding over the presidentís nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court have real reasons to be horrified.

    And, no, itís not because of abortion, which is probably the least of their problems right now. Itís all the other tentacles of coercive liberalism that Democrats were able to ram down the throats of ordinary Americans for more than half a century thanks to activist courts.


    Their heyday is over ó if Kavanaugh is confirmed and becomes the reliable fifth vote to uphold the original intent of the Constitution. In that case, Dems would be out in the cold and America would be witnessing the advent of a new legal era, though it will take years to be fully realized because of the Supremesí deference to earlier rulings.


    Except for brief stretches under Chief Justice William Rehnquist, most people alive today donít know what itís like to have a Supreme Court where the majority consistently believes its job is to interpret the laws, not make them. Beginning in 1953, when President Dwight Eisenhower nominated Earl Warren as chief justice, the Supreme Court started to act more like a Supreme Congress and only rarely stopped. Ideas that couldnít make it through state legislatures or Congress nonetheless became law when as few as five justices imposed them on the nation.

    I do not believe Kavanaugh is the best choice. I believe he will be a trustworthy as Roberts. On the big important cases, I believe Kavanaugh will find a way to side with the State against the Constitution.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Better than a left wing judge and better to have him and get him appointed before the midterms

    Our measure ought not to be that he is better than a leftist. Reject him and insist that President Trump nominate a Constitutional Conservative.

    No one is interested in upholding the "original intent of the constitution" and it's hardly just been activist liberal justices influences the laws of the country over the past 50 years. The Rehnquist court and the Commerce Clause, for example?

    If no one is interested in supporting and defending the Constitution then let's abolish it.

    That's it. One example?

    Where did you get the nonsense no one is interested in original intent? The DNC?

    Damn that Trump. He must have your number on speed dial. Maybe you should check to be sure. I told him that he should do as he thinks best, he told me he always does and **** anyone who doesn't like it. Then he hung up on me.

    I am not 100% sold on Kavanaugh based on what I have heard in the media. Though I guess I should consider the source.

    I was personally hoping for the female catholic (I forget her name). Not only do I believe she would have been a strong voice in support of the Constitution but also a hell of a lot better to look at than Ruth, Sonya and Elaine.

    Hopefully she will have her chance in the not to distant future. Not wishing death on any current Justices but am hoping Ruth Buzzy will retire.

    I get it. You are willing to settle for second best.
