This profound question deserves an answer. Today as we look at the political world that governs our very lives we see legislators who willingly sell our liberty for their own profit. As I write this, we dont know if Brett Kavanaugh (age 53) will be given a lifetime appointment to our highest court; but through true political courage, we are learning what kind of man Brett Kavanaugh is.
Mercifully, not every senator is for sale. Senator Cory Booker put his political career on the line by telling the truth; Republicons were hiding Kavanaughs true biases by labeling them confidential.
Contrary to Kavanaughs sworn testimony, his true beliefs are now known: birth control is abortion; EOE is just set asides for minorities; Roe v Wade is up to new interpretation. Even more alarming and damning are emails he wrote stating he knew he was circulating stolen Democratic senate staffers documents to Republicon political operatives.
What we now know: Brett Kavanaugh is cravenly, nakedly power hungry and he lies, cheats and steals to get what he wants. What he wants is power over others. He wants women, all races, all colors and LGBTQ to bow down before him and his white brethren; and as the majority SCOTUS vote, he will get it. What we will get is the doo whack-a-doo.
