Nightmare Scenario

The present U.S. Supreme Court building as viewed from across 1st Street NE. (Source)
A little something I received from Tuna in the overnight mail, not sure where he got it, but it's food for thought. I can't vouch for the accuracy of the numbers, but they seem plausible.
Think about it!!!

Some people have threatened that they won't vote for the Republican nominee if the eventual nominee is not the person they want.

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.

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, that 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 viewed as 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.

Anyone and Everyone who is saying that they won't vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this.

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.

Whoever is the GOP nominee ... go VOTE for the GOP Nominee!

Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who had voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason) .... and the result was four additional years of B.H.Obama.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT, Clinton is already on the record as saying that her buddy, B.H.Obama. "would make a great Supreme Court Justice." ������

JUST READ THAT LAST SENTENCE AGAIN!!!!!!
I should note that at this point in time we all know who the Republican nominee is. That's right, it's Donald Trump, and yes I will be choosing the lesser of two evils come November. As you might gather, Mr. Trump has my grudging endorsement. Primarily for what the e-mail above states.

If we lose the Supremes, we lose the Constitution.

If we lose the Constitution, we lose the United States.

When we lose that, we're just another failed experiment.

I wanted to vote on principal, I wanted to pick the better candidate. Unfortunately, those I thought better didn't make it out of the primaries. Those I thought would make great leaders didn't even run.

I think we're watching a sunset here, not a pretty one but one which promises nothing but heartache and sorrow to come in the darkest of nights. Will we ever see the sun rise on freedom again?

Who knows?

I am supremely sick of this shite. (Pun intended...)

  1. Excellent point. This is grounded in what the reality of the upcoming election and what the results will mean. No hype, just what the consequences will be. And it will not stop there either.

  2. It is so freakin' sad that it has come down to knowing who we aren't going to vote for.
    Even sadder that the top of the ticket's coattails will probably determine the outcome of other races.

    "Those I thought would make great leaders didn't even run."
    There are probably still more out there who'd be even better, but won't dip their toes in the water because of far too many snakes swimming in the pool.
    Maybe when I feel like taking the time to completely sort my thoughts about politics I will have a post about what I think.

    1. Good points Skip. I may back off on the political posts for a while. I always feel somewhat sullied after writing one.

      But I do look forward to your take on things.

  3. I remain firmly in the, "Anybody but Shillary" camp. Down ballot races in CO are my focus. Up for reelection to the Senate is an East Coast trust fund carpet baggger who put the Denver schools in a deep hole playing the derivatives market with school funds. In my district the GOP congress critter is probably safe. My money and time is going to help Mike Coffman (R) 6th who is a fierce and effective critic of the VA. The Dem PACs are after him with big bucks - might hit a billion before it is over.

    1. The Dem PACs no doubt wish to derail Mr. Coffman so they can continue to loot the Nation's treasure. At the expense of those who gave much to protect it.

    2. Coffman could have been the US Senate nominee. He turned it down in order to continue the VA fight.

  5. Thanks to our dumbed-down educational system we have unbelievable amounts of LIVs who know everything about the Kardishians and nothing about G. Washington. And when combined with the constant force-feeding of leftist propaganda K-16, control of sources of info by the lefty MSM, Google, Facebook, Twitter the AP, Reuters, etc., we are probably doomed to the extinction of the Republic. Only a deaf, dumb and blind person would conclude otherwise. Only IF Trump can pull a Silky Sullivan we might be saved. But just think, all those who would blindly vote or Hillary and HAVE voted for Obama a second time despite his track record, STILL will be lurking out there for all future elections and, as time passes, and our educational system continues on its corrosive course seemingly unchanged, the question is if not now, but of inevitably when.

    I TRULY despair... The Flag is coming down..

    1. Perhaps, maybe, it might be like the Nixon-Humphrey election of 68. I had just arrived at the home of my best friends parents in New Orleans from RVN dead tired, but stayed up late until I collapsed with it looking bad for Nixon. When I awoke the next am and found out that Nixon had pulled it out I remember thinking: "The Republic is saved!" I can STILL remember that feeling of great relief, an actual physical feeling that suffused my entire body. Would that it might happen again...but in those days LA was 90% white and a Ronald Regan and all that he stood for could still be elected Gov of Calif..

    2. Desperate times seem to be coming. Of that there is little doubt.

    3. I remember '68 though I was nobbut a lad of 15. While politics didn't seem as evil then as they do now, I know that the election of Nixon was viewed with relief by my family. Hated LBJ and all those associated with him.

    4. I will probably choke in the process, but I will swallow my misgivings and vote for Trump with the hopeful thought that Trey Gowdey and Ted Cruz would be outstanding candidates for the Court. God save us all, and God save the United States.

      Delete
    5. I have already choked, gagged, taken a deep breath, and decided for Trump. I see no other way of defeating the forces of darkness.

    6. Why would you do that, Sarge, when you know that there's a snowball's chance that RI will go for anybody except Clinton?

      Delete
    7. Actually, I've heard that Trump could take RI. People hate Shrillary.

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
