Fwd: I don't like any of them. But I will VOTE.

Subject: Fwd: I don't like any of them. But I will VOTE.

I don’t like any of them… But I will VOTE. Please think about this . . .

A lot of people have brought up the fact that they won't vote for Trump if he's the eventual
nominee.  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.

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.

More think tank goodness, brought to you by the Cato Institute.

This one essentially boils down to a plea for Rightwing Dad to hold his nose and pretty please vote for Ted Cruz. The Heller decision has been one of Ted's little hobby horses during his campaign.

OF COURSE the only thing that wingnuts are worried about is their precious guns.

Never mind all the horrible decisions a conservative supreme court has made and will make again if given the chance. Campaign finance, civil rights, voting rights, health care, labor rights? Meh, fuck all that.

The ONLY thing that matters to them is their precious little guns, which of course they'll still keep no matter who is President. Obama really was right about the bitter clingers.

The Supreme Court WAS wrong in the Heller decision. Republicans have long been complaining that the court made up a right to privacy that isn't in the Constitution in their Griswold v. Connecticut decision.

But they never complain about the alleged Constitutional right to self-defense that Antonin Scalia pulled out of his ass to justify Heller.

That said, with Citizens United, the rollback of the Voting Rights Act, and the Hobby Lobby decision, it's pretty clear that we'd be much better off with a Court that had more moderates on it.

Other comments cover salient points. No surprises that there's now a full-court press to get the rubes, er, proles, er "values" voters to get out, hold their noses, and vote for the Cruzer... and not their new lord and master, Trump (cuz who knows who he'd put on the SC??).

Yeah yeah... same old, different day. Just a bunch of super rich entitled shit heads demanding that their serfs vote against their own personal interests yet again based on being able to be out loud and proud racists. You go, RWD. You always fall for this shit.

And if you elect Trump or Cruz, you get the POTUS, a loaded SCOTUS with the same fucking nutjobs and a Congressional Majority....the trifecta of all three branches.

That will usher in LGBT concentration camps, a gun in every pocket, The Great Wall of CA, NM, AZ and TX and the return of "Leave it To Beaver" and "Father Knows Best" reruns for the rubes to beat off to.

Hyperbole, but only if you believe that every Supreme Court justice is totally in the tank for whatever political philosophy. Souter, O'Connell, Kennedy, and Roberts certainly have often surprised conservatives. Still, a ring of truth in that sentence!
