For people who were leaning on the fence of whether to vote for Donald Trump or sit it out the number one issue that I heard people talk about more than any other was the fact if the U.S. Supreme Court was lost to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats it would be a catastrophe and for that issue being so very important they would probably vote for Trump. I would say in the next four years there will be three new openings on the bench maybe as many as four. If four young Justices were to be appointed to the high court you are talking about maybe as many as fifty years of control from the party in power. We know that the Democrats have leaned left like they have never before and after Trump’s victory they are showing they will be even going more left with the people they are talking about putting in power and that means the Court would be going ever so much left and we all know what that would mean to our Constitution, kiss it goodbye!
The following was posted by Adam Liptak, published by The New York Times: ” The election of Donald J. Trump means that Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat, vacant since he died in February, will almost certainly be filled by a conservative nominee. Back to full strength, the court will again tilt right, as it has for decades.”
“And with the court’s two senior liberal members fairly old, that may be only the start. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 83, and Justice Stephen G. Breyer is 78.”
A few months ago Donald Trump wisely came out with a list of 21 leaning conservatives that he would recommend for the Supreme Court if he was to win the election and had the opportunity to appoint. By doing so at the time it gave a relief to conservatives within the Republican Party to lean towards Trump.
It’s true that when a president appoints a Supreme Court Justice there have been some surprises along the way and it’s usually Republican appointees. The Democrats as always stick to their ideology and never waiver. President Eisenhower once said that the worst decision he ever made as president was to appoint Chief Just Earl Warren to the Supreme Court. President George W. Bush gave the Court Chief Justice John Roberts and he turned into a Benedict Arnold who kissed up to Obama in regard to Obama Care. One thing we do know though and that is a Democrat appointee would be an automatic socialist-Marxist whereas a Trump appointee We The People have a good chance that if they voted along conservative lines before there would be a good chance they will continue to do so. Yes, good job President-elect Donald Trump.
