This decision today is the fault of...

all the people who stayed home or voted third party in 2016 because they didn't like Hillary for whatever stupid reason they could think of. Of course James Comey and the Russian collusion also played a huge role in in the illegitimate outcome of that election, but the purity tests were a big factor in creating our current mess. Don't forget that the losers of the popular vote and senators who represent a minority of the population are the ones who installed the right wing majority on this court. And if anybody thinks that they will stop with this horrendous decision they haven't been paying attention for the past fifty years. All the rights and freedoms that were fought for and earned since the '50s and '60s are now on the chopping block in the near future unless we expand the court and align it with the vast majority of Americans.

4. I guess you forgot about

Mitch McConnell cheating Obama out of an SC appointment, and his ramming through justice Amy's appointment. The people 's right to vote for who they prefer isn't the problem here. It's the old turds already in power gaming our whole society.
And then there's the illicit influence of Russian hyper conservatism. But it's hard to separate the two.
Come November let's abort the republican party.

7. I blame Fox News.

Trump is the symptom. Fox News is the real virus that must be eradicated.

8. Bullshit. The voters voted for Hillary. She lost the blue wall and the electoral vote from 3 fucking

states. Blame the fuckers in office. THEY did this not someone who didn't vote for someone they didn't like. EVERY fucking republican and every Democrat who voted to allow them to be put on the court are to blame. No one else.

9. "not someone who voted for someone they didn't like"

Actually, that mentality went way beyond what was necessary to ensure people didnít like her. The disinformation campaign about her came from all sides, and Trump copied it all and ran with it.

Hillaryís Supreme Court wouldnít do this.

14. You know what? That mentality has always been around, even before her husband was elected.

Hillary didn't get a supreme court. Neither did Obama. So we will never know. That's the fucking facts Nix.

20. The obvious is that Hillary wouldn't have nominated the RW liars

there now, but she was smeared viciously in nonstop disinformation campaigns.

15. It goes further back than that 2000

Ralph Nader received 90,000+ votes in Florida giving the state to Bush with 500+ votes. Thus putting Alito on the court.

16. 100 million people do not vote

They can, but donít.

Single issue voters, like the religious zealots and 2nd Amendment absolutists show up every time.

Decisions are made by people who show up.

Hopefully itís not too late but folks better get off their asses an show up. We get what we deserve.
