10. No, Republicans and conservatives don't care about any of that.

In addition, for decades to come, no matter what measures a Democratic Congress might pass and a Democratic president might sign into law – no matter how just and proper those laws might be, no matter how warranted and appropriate, no matter that such laws reflect the will of the people – conservatives need only file suit in Federal court and eventually have those necessary, proper laws invalidated for purely partisan reasons by a five-justice majority of conservative ideologues on the Supreme Court.

But wait, there’s more…

The same is true for laws passed by Democrats at the state level and signed into law by a Democratic governor. Conservatives need only file suit in Federal court and eventually have those necessary, proper state laws and measures invalidated for purely partisan reasons by a five-justice majority of conservative ideologues on the Supreme Court.

So much for conservatives’ advocacy of “states’ rights.”

Indeed, conservatives will become purveyors of ignoring the will of the people, defenders of tyrants in black robes, and champions of legislating from the bench.

The reprehensible right has codified its minority rule.
