Got a problem with the US Constitution? Thanks for playing, now give your mommy her 'puter back.
It's a flawed document but I like it a lot. I hate to see anyone walk all over it or ignore it. Both of which Trump and the GOP have done.

Democrats MUST LEARN they do not own this SCOTUS seat. It's not their property.
Republicans should learn, they do not get to stack the courts...

First they deny Obama for the scotus seat to replace Scalia, then they say they need to deny Hillary a pick, even of she won the presidency....

Do you think only Republicans should be allowed to pick SC Justices???
1. Filling a vacant seat is not "stacking the courts".
2. Hillary's pick? She lost, not a thing.
3. Scalia's seat was vacant in an election year where the president and senate are from different parties. Delaying the vote until after the election was a legitimate move. Way more legal than the democrats' subversion of the Trump presidency.
Dems who actually attempted to fill a conservative seat with a liberal, now complain about Republicans doing the exact same thing they attempted.

In the 2016 Presidential Election, one of the primary reasons that Trump voters voted for Trump over Hillary was to DENY Hillary the chance to nominate any Supreme Court justices. Trump won the election. It would be a betrayal of HIS voters confidence for him to do anything less than what he was elected to do.
The people said no to Trump by 3 million votes.

The real problem is, Republicans don't want Trump nominating a third religious fanatic to the court and actually overturning Roe. That would pretty much be the end of the Republican Party. So don't be surprised when a bunch of GOP senators decide to wait for the election to turn out.

And that's the point. There were nine months between Scalia's Dirt Nap and the election, but McConnell claimed the next president should make that decision, but with six weeks, we have to rush to get the nominee through because they already know Trump is going to lose?

If you guys are so confident Trump is going to get a second term, why the rush?

No, California said no to Trump by 4 million votes. The other 49 states said yes to Trump by 1 million votes. There I destroyed your pitiful talking point, tissue?
Uh, not really. California is still the United States. The fact is, those 3 million votes were across the whole country, and Hillary won the more populous states by huge margins while Trump barely scraped by in FL, NC, PA, WI and MI. That's kind of messed up... The people got this one right, our bad system, not so much.

No, it was 3 million votes in AMERICA.. The people said "No".

They'll say it louder in november, but we shouldn't let Trump pack the courts.
That's tough talk from the party that got its ass whooped by Trump. :auiqs.jpg:

Neither does the GOP. Why not let the people decide as Mitch and Biden have said? I didn't realize how scared of losing the Right has become, that is the only reason I can see to fill the seat before election day.
blow me the seat is vacant and must be filled if democrats had the same chance they would fill it by end of this week
I applaud you coming out of the closet but you're not my type. We don't know what the Dems would do but they've always said they wouldn't. On the other hand we know exactly what the GOP says it will do. I don't see those as equivalent.
Actually we do know how the democrats would do. They would do exactly what the Republicans are doing. This is the effect of that politically motivated democrat impeachment

The leftists have been stacking the courts for decades. Now that Republicans finally grew a pair and fight fire with fire is it a problem.

Once again, the US is not 51-50 democracy. It is a representative republic. Learn to form a thought based on facts not feelings. Take a civics class and grow up.

Exactly, its a game with rules (The US Constitution & Laws), and the ultimate judges are the USSC.
So anyone can try anything, but the laws are the laws, and the judges are the deciders.

So no one can "bend" the rules, unless the other side lets them.

Dems started this shit trying to fill Scalia's seat with a liberal and would have without any doubt had they controlled the Senate. They don't deny it. Now Dems want the change the rules.

I don't blame the democrats for trying to fill Scalia's seat with a liberal judge. Article-2 says that is okay.
McConnell also had the right to block the nomination until after the 2016 election, and it worked out for Mitch.
We'll see what happens in November, will Mitch keep the senate, or will Schumer start the democrat circus.

This is a simple poll to make a relevant political point.

In the 2016 Presidential Election, one of the primary reasons that Trump voters voted for Trump over Hillary was to DENY Hillary the chance to nominate any Supreme Court justices. Trump won the election. It would be a betrayal of HIS voters confidence for him to do anything less than what he was elected to do.

The people chose the President and Senate. The President nominates the justices, the Senate confirms the justices. The People have chosen their President, his name is Donald J Trump, he is President until January 20th 2021. Our President has a duty to nominate the next justice immediately, and the Senate, which serves until January 1, 2021 has a duty to vote on that nominee immediately so a full compliment of 9 Supreme Court Justices can rule on this potentially contested Presidential election.

Our Democracy can not afford to wait to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Sleepy, Crazy, Puppet Joe and the Ho have preemptively lawyered up to the tune of over 600 attorneys and the omni-present sore loser "See you next Tuesday" Clinton has avouched that Brainsick Biden "... should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out,"

We more than likely will need a fully staffed Supreme Court to rule on this election. It now becomes very clear why the Biden Campaign has over 600 attorneys, enough to cover EVERY states lower court. An 8 person Supreme Court that can deadlock in a 4-4 vote, leaves in place any lower court decision. If Biden can challenge any and every state vote count, he has a better chance of having a ruling by a lesser court stand in his favor and a deadlocked Supreme Court can not over-turn it.
