Scalia's death has stalled a coup plot.

The right are desperately trying to get the momentum back so they can drive a final stake through the heart of our democracy. With Scalia's help, they legalized bribery (Citizens United) and eliminated our voting rights (Shelby County v. Holder). They were about one case away from the final, permanent takeover of our government.

Now they are grieving and angry that their trusted radical activist justice is gone. They will do anything to install another puppet.

I propose a plan to cheer them up. Righties love to hunt. Let's tie down some mountain gorillas and snow leopards at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, and send Roberts, Alito, Thomas, and "Sharpshooter Dick" Cheney down there in a small plane. 'Cause hunting with Sharpshooter Dick is a ton of fun. Just ask Harry Whittington or Antonin Scalia!

3. Yeah cause there's nothing different

between the parties right? Such a pantload repeated over and over again doesn't make it any less a pantload.

Don't worry, I'm sure the grieving process will work itself out.

9. Yup

I'll take her over any of the options on the puke side in a heartbeat. I don't think we'll be seeing too many bullshit "bathroom bills", harsh abortion laws or an end to the Department of Education, or the EPA under her watch.

5. Ones a Madman the other a ravening Coporate Socialist.

 

Choice between a bullet to the head or death by a thousand paper cuts.

As a vet I can safely say, dead is dead.

and not to worry, I don't plan on changing my attitude.


May the Oligarchy be Praised!

6. I'm really tired of seeing this "There's no difference" meme

Let's pretend for a moment that Sanders wins the Presidency--how does a President who has absolutely zero power to create laws overhaul our broken system?

How does he get Citizens United overturned by himself? Have you forgotten about the actual lawmakers? Not all of whom will be as progressive as he is and he certainly isn't going to get a sweeping majority for his first two years in office.

As a matter of fact, no matter which Democratic candidate wins, the next two years will be more of the same bullshit we're seeing now.

And we still haven't touched on the glaring differences between the two parties. Do you really believe that a President Hillary Clinton will pick the same types of Supreme Court justices as a President Cruz or Trump?

Do you really think a President Clinton will roll back all the executive orders President Obama has signed? Guaranteed a President Cruz would do so to all the executive orders giving the LGBTQ community protections.

If you really can't see the difference between the two parties then you're either ignorant or willfully blind.

10. Nobody is expecting you too

if you can't see the difference there is no hope for you. I only hope that enough people do to save you from the madman.

12. Yes the Coporate Socialist is supposed to save us from the madman.

 

A raving loon vs someone who has agenda to turn us into the next Greece.

Great choice.

The fact you actually trust Clinton says it all.
