    She may have been a brilliant lawyer, but her position on Constitutional issues was always a matter of what she personally saw as the correct social justice path, not what the Constitution actually said. She never gave even the slightest support to the 2nd Amendment which she despised. She read into the Constitution "rights" that were not there and ignored rights that were clearly included. She was quoted as saying she wished that the U.S. Constitution were more like one that she preferred, the Constitution of South Africa. It was absolutely easy to predict where she stood on every case that would come before the Supreme Court as long as you could determine the political aspects of the case, with no regard as to Constitutionality. Her supporters can rejoice in the reality that she received her wish of not living to see a second term for Donald Trump. I will not miss her one iota, and hope that the President and the Senate have the courage to replace her with a true Conservative despite the chaos that the Democrats will seek to create.

    Since we know they wouldn’t nominate a Justice if the rolls were reversed right?

    The Democrats have pledged to fill the court with progressives if they can get control of the House, Senate and White House. They will expand the number of Justices dramatically and fill every new seat with socialist/progressives.

    That will certainly end any partisanship in the SCOTUS...

    In the 1930's in Spain there were two opposing factions, the elected liberal government and the Fascists who came to power through a military rebellion followed by a three year Civil War led by General Franco. Each side had its supporters, with the Communists in the Soviet Union supporting the Leftists, and Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Italy supporting the Fascists and Franco. There was no possibility of compromise between the two sides and a bloody civil war was the only way to determine which ideology would control Spain. While not reliant upon foreign powers for support, the United States seems to be moving to a situation where clashing ideologies will leave the nation in a position where reconciliation is impossible, and only armed conflict will resolve the direction of the future. It is not inconceivable that the death of RBG and the turmoil over her replacement will be the spark that ignites the conflagration.

    I've shared the same thoughts over the last few weeks.

    This country is on edge, split ideologically, and RGB's death might lead the country down a dark path.

    Good riddance works for me.
    Not an originalist. Anything else is liberal distortion. Mark Levin will probably be able to elaborate on all her bad votes and opinions if hes back on Monday. I do recall him saying she was irresponsible just to stay on at this advanced age because the workload required is just not effectively handled. She probably has not responsibly handled it and shoved most of it off on her clerks.

    The idolatry of this liberal bozo is nauseating. She wasnt a great jurist.

    She was an activist, not a jurist. Good riddance.

    Not really.

    If you look at the history of the Court, most would say that judicial activism and expansion of power of the Judiciary vs other branches started under Earl Warren.

    Prior to that, rightly or wrongly, the SCOTUS tried to adhere to the text of the Constitution and the text of whatever law they were reviewing. Not many instances of creation of new legislation from the bench.

    THAT is now becoming the norm.

    Just my $.02.

    My condolences to her family. I am sure they will miss her.

    Me? Not so much.

    Prayers for her family.

    Things are going to get uglier now, if that is even possible.



    If she was so concerned about being replaced by another liberal, then she should have retired while Obama was in office. The Dems approached her about that and she refused.


    I hope Governor Sarah takes her seat in 2022.


    I hope so. And I hope her family is ready for the attacks by the leftists.


    I'm not so sure those "last words" aren't fake news.


    Isn't Romney a deacon in the Mormon church? If he refuses to vote for a pro-life justice they should throw him out of the church.


    No. And by law there should have been one since Justice Scalia died at a hunting lodge in the boonies. I always thought that was very suspicious.

    but the roles are reversed and they’re going to do the same thing the republicans did the last time.

    it’s always tit for tat between the republicans and the democrats.

    Not meaning any disrespect, but when I noticed the thread, reloading was the first thing that came to mind. Thoughts and prayers with the family and loved ones.

    Republicans said just a few years ago a justice shouldn’t be replaced this close to an election. We will see if they flip flop.

    Politicians are full of **** on both sides I wonder when the American public will figure it out.

    That said if the votes are there I think either side has every right and probably should put a new justice in place.


    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait to the next election”

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas): “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.”

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.): “I think we’re too close to the election. The president who is elected in November should be the one who makes this decision.”

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): “I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term — I would say that if it was a Republican president .”

    I was having this discussion last night. I don't think we should even know the political leanings of the Supremes. It's not their job.

    The Republicans controlled the Senate last time. The Democrats do not control the Senate this time.

    Can’t argue with that.

    but democrats and republicans have been playing their games for the last three decades and the hell with america or the spirit of compromise.

    whatever, I don’t care any more. The republicans can’t even rally behind the one president who tries to make America great again.
