Forums - Politics Discussion - Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead

Definitely a depressing night. RIP RBG. Unfortunately there's not much time to mourn as Mitch wasted not even an hour before announcing a vote. I'm reminded of this video:

At least Joe has expressed the intent to hold Republicans to the rhetoric they spewed all through 2016, whatever good that will actually do.

And just like that the US inches ever closer to a theocracy and a complete buttfuck of the separation of church and state. Thank you Regressive Left for your identity politics and all your BS that ignited and emboldened the Right.

The Left should be trying to seduce people in the Right to increase numbers and become stronger, not alienate everyone with your fucking purity tests.

The two justices haven't been new radical members. Why do you think the US is closer to a theocracy? The same government that largely doesn't want people to meet in any churches?

Damn guys, no need to attack conservatives with your conspiracy theories about who Trump is going to appoint.

It's gonna be Amy Coney Barrett. A nice, Catholic, conservative woman.

"Conspiracy Theories"

Trump Adds Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton To List Of Potential Supreme Court Picks

Yeah, npr is a bunch of bullshit. I'll take a news source not funded by my tax dollars thanks.

Hopefully this lights a fire under the asses of fence-sitting progressives everywhere and gets them to vote Biden. This is why elections matter. Republicans will never play fair, so we have to beat them at the ballot box.

Democrats are literally burning our cities down over the fact that Democrat populations elect Democrat mayors who appoint Democrat police chiefs who hire Democrat cops that do dumb ass shit like suffocate people by kneeling on their neck. READ: Minnesota

Democrat problems for Democrat states.

Elections matter. Yes they do. Now stop trying to ram National Popular Vote down people's throats.

Republicans don't play fair? They seem to be the only ones protecting the Electoral College.

If Biden wasn't such a trash candidate, we wouldn't have these problems.

I'm sure now you're retract your accusations of conspiracy theories.

That's better.

It's still gonna be Amy Coney Barrett. You can bet your paycheck on that.



Some ways to channel your frustration:

Donate to Theresa Greenfield, who is challenging Joni Ernst in Iowa:



Steve Bullock, a popular Montana Governor challenging Steve Daines in Montana:


John Ossof, going for David Perdue in Georgia:


Barbara Bollier, a wonderful Kansas teacher:


Don't waste cash on Amy McGrath. These people (alongside the candidates for Texas and Alaska) are going to be pivotal to getting back the Senate.

She's been in and out of the hospital a bunch of times in years of late. She seemed to be a fighter. RIP.

How long can Trump leave that position open? Not sure what he would rather do. On one hand he'll stir up the hornets nest if he picks anyone seen as more conservative, so he may want to wait until after the election if he can. On the other hand, setting up another Kav situation could certainly change the news cycle, and potentially to Trumps benefit. Though will the Dems react differently to any pick and remain quiet because of the election? This is going to be interesting.

The democrats will do everything their power to block any judge proposed by Trump. They will fight until the election while fighting hard for Trump to not win. After that things are gonna be chill again. Unless Trump wins again. But if that happens people will have bigger problems than a Trump appointed judge.
