    That was an extremely brave (because it is unpopular) dissent to write. But it is true.

    She wouldn’t be my pick if the list included the entire country, but she was the best out of Trump’s old shortlist.

    I want someone as conservative as Shapiro or Cruz.

    I posted it on my Facebook page. Pissed off my parents. My father is worried when it gets posted to his "wall" that it will piss off the crazy liberals that he's friends with, and my mother thought RBG was a great woman, so she's not talking to me.

    Fun times.

    God, please let it be Shapiro. Wouldn't he be the first Jewish man on the Supreme Court? Think about all of the "Jews are taking over our country!" types....they would lose it.

    Whomever he nominates it has to be someone who makes Biden and his crew look like schmucks when they fight it. So even if they aren't ratified it helps.

    "Barrett clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia after graduating from Notre Dame University Law School. Like Scalia, Barrett is a strict originalist and would enforce her best understanding of the Constitution rather than a precedent she thinks is clearly in conflict with it, she wrote in a 2013 Texas Law Review article."

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/19/amy-coney-barrett-what-you-need-to-know-418378

    Below is a speech she made in 2016 while she was still a professor of law at Notre Dame, prior to being appointed to 7th district court of appeals. She seems to have a genuine admiration for Justice Scalia's interpretation of the constitution and cites examples of his reasoning as a model of what a supreme court justice should be.

    RBG was a proponent of pedophilia (her own words) and apparently unrepentant about it. Many seem to thing she was a wonderful woman and a pioneer. I saw her as wicked and evil.
