Consider options

If you are a Republican or an Independent that won’t vote for Donald Trump, think about it this way: “7 to 2.”

If Trump wins and he is a jerk as president, he’ll be out in 4 years (or impeached, whichever comes first).

If Hillary Clinton wins (because you feel it’s not dignified to vote for Trump), you, your children, and your grandchildren will live under Hillary’s designated Supreme Court justices (and their liberal rulings) for many years to come (even if she was a jerk as president).

This is true even after Hillary is gone and, even if she is followed by a Republican president of your liking.

Still not convinced? Before you say you won’t vote Trump, consider this: Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant, Ginsberg is 82 years old, Kennedy is 79, Breyer is 77, and Thomas is 67.

The data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after age 75.

Therefore, there are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years.

The next president will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.

If the next president appoints five young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation.

And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate.

Clinton has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms.

Anyone who is saying they won’t vote for Trump please realize this: Trump did not jeopardize our National security by using a private e-mail service for sending and receiving classified e-mails! Clinton did.

If Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life!

Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason) and B.H.O. got to play golf for 4 more years at tax payers expense.

One final thought: Hillary is already on record as saying that her buddy, B.H.O. “would make a great Supreme Court Justice.”

Also, vote GOP for Senate and congressional seats. (Unless you want more food stamps and free cellphones).
