Just a Reminder

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4]Whoever wins in November the very FIRST thing they are going to do is fill a supreme court spot (one Obama should have gotten to fill), and will probably get 2 to 3 more picks after that. Who you vote for in November WILL determine the court's ideological for years if not DECADES to come.

The last repuglican president gave us Alito. Obama gave us Kagan and Sotomayor.

Donald trump has promised to fill the vacancy with someone who is the ideological twin of Scalia, and has on his list a man who would make gay sex illegal if he had his way. The last Clinton gave us one of the greatest Supreme Court Justices of all time the Notorious RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In fact, just as a quick reminder, here are Supreme Court Picks of the Last five Presidents:

  • Obama: Sotomayor and Kagan


  • George W Bush: Roberts and Alito


  • Clinton: Ginsburg and Breyer


  • George H W Bush: Thomas and Souter


  • Ronald Reagan: Rehnquist, O'Conner, Kennedy, and Scalia


So, if any of you lurkers out there are questioning if you should or shouldn't vote for Clinton, please keep in mind all the recent supreme court decisions that affects this country in the last 50 years: Citizens united, Obergefell, Whole Women's Health, Gore v Bush, and many many more.

Remember which judge voted which way. Remember who nominated those judges.

Remember the platforms of both parties and what they stand for. And remember, that if you care for Social Justice; for the rights of LGBTQ people, women, racial minorities and more; for civil rights; for keeping and expanding the PPACA/Obamacare; and for making sure there is never another Scalia on the Bench...

Vote Democratic Party.

Thank you.[/font]

1. Think about having another strong liberal on the court

 

The Obama/Clinton legacy for the next 30 years. We could make a lot of progress in that time. I think it is getting close to reality.
