Mark my words… The Republicans will not stand in the way of confirming Obama’s replacement for Justice Scalia.
I pray to God that I am wrong, but they wont. They have a proven track record of not standing in opposition to him in the past, and they have a proven record of wanting bigger and farther left leaning government anyway… so why would they?
They will publicly make a fuss, but when the votes are cast for confirmation Obama will get his Justice confirmed.
The worst part is that the American People will not even take notice. According the Yahoo, SCOTUS has the highest approval rating of any branch of govt. Why would that be? The court is highly political, and decisions are strongly divided along political ideology. And thats what the media keeps telling us that the American People dont want… that we must all go along to get along and that there needs to be compromise and common ground. Yet the court always hands down 5-4 decisions along political party lines.
So what gives??? I think that they have the highest approval rating because there is the biggest disconnect. Much like foreign policy, most Americans simply dont care about the legal minutia of what is going on with SCOTUS. (College students think Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court) So, by default they give higher approval ratings. What does this mean? It means that Republicans will for the most part get away with pushing through Obama nominee.
We are doomed. Not just on the 2nd Amendment, but the country as a whole is going to see drastic changes and things are going to move very, very quickly. Just about any left-wing lunatic idea can be rammed through now, and it will be “LAW OF THE LAND!”
