Response to RealAmericanDem (Reply #17)

59. The US Supreme Court is quite conservative.

And on some issues, the Republican Justices have sometimes been more liberal than the Democrats.

When it came to "eminent domain" issues that were being used to grab a senior citizen's lower middle incomed home away from her so that a Country Club could go in, the R's on the court voted for the woman, while the Democrats voted against.

Same with the issue of medicinal marijuana. (Though that may finally be changing.)

Anyway if you really want a US Supreme Court that is not favoring Monsanto and Big Gm food and seed issues over Americans right to eat healthy, non-organ destroying foods, if you want to preserve your home from Country Clubs, if you want to end the stranglehold that the damn Big Banks and Big Military have on this nation, getting a HRC in won't help. (And she has always been against medicinal
marijuana. It was her husband who signed the papers ending the employment and seizing the Social Security Assets of major med marijuana activist Lynnette Shaw)

To have a SCOTUS that stands by and for and with the middle class, it has to be a progressive in the Oval Office.
