There’s a lot of noise coming from the Media, about how disrespectful it is to the Memory of the Late Justice Scalia, because it didn’t take seconds before the Republicans, but specifically how the Republican Candidates have POLITICIZED his death.
When a President dies in office . . . the Vice President is sworn in as soon as someone in authority is available to take his or her Oath of Office, even before the deceased’s body gets cold. And if the Vice President is unfit for whatever reason to take the Oath, the Speaker of the House is up next, and so on. But either way, mourning the death comes after the continuation of National Responsibility.
When a King or Queen dies in Office . . . The government declares that the Royal is Dead, and then immediately proclaims – Long Live The King or Queen, referencing whomever is next in the line to ascend to the Throne. And continuity goes on, since there will be time for mourning later.
The Supreme Court is the Third Rail of Government in the USA, and the only one that is NOT directly elected by the people, which can, and will move the United States in any Direction it deems fit. So, replacing Scalia is not just filling a slot . . . it is a lifetime appointment that will determine the future of the World’s Largest and thus far seriously challenged Democracy.
And if the Senate gets it wrong, and allows Obama to replace Scalia with anyone who is not an EARNEST Conservative as was Scalia . . . everyone might as well MOURN the memory, of all that has made America Great.
I don’t care about JURISPRUDENCE . . . because this goes beyond protocol and debate. It comes right down to the essence and SURVIVAL of America.
And anyone appointed to the Supreme Court by Obama, and confirmed by the Senate, who will tilt to the LEFT, will change America forever.
THE STAKES ARE SO HIGH . . . that the impending battle over the appointment of a replacement for Scalia, if pushed the wrong way, would MERIT an armed INSURRECTION by Patriots in Congress, and on the Streets of America. Because, if the balance of power shifts in the Supreme Court, America will no longer exist as it was created on July 4, 1776.
All the Republican Candidates have made it clear to their credit, that they will not support the replacement of a Supreme Court Justice until after the election.
AND CRUZ MADE IT CLEAREST OF ALL . . . that the appointment of the replacement for Scalia is so important, that it should be decided by the people in the UPCOMING Presidential Campaign.
THE PEOPLE MUST HAVE THE RIGHT . . . to determine the destiny of the United States of America, and not an outgoing President, especially given where America has been dragged over the past few generations, and specifically over the past 7-Years.
NEVER IN MY 66-YEAR LIFETIME . . . has there ever been a clearer decision before the people, than the choice of a Supreme Court Judge, who will decide the FUNDAMENTAL future of the USA, because the choice of the next President will become the choice of the structure of the Supreme Court, and where it will bring America.
If you’re an American Citizen with the RIGHT to Vote . . . How could you oppose the RIGHT to become directly involved in choosing the NEXT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE?
And if for whatever reason you say that you shouldn’t, then I say you shouldn’t bother voting, because choosing the direction and future of your country surpasses anything and everything anyone voting today, has ever had the opportunity to become directly involved in, in anyone’s living memory.
1 – Interpret the Constitution the way it was written.
2 – Support the 1st Amendment with the very LEAST of exceptions.
3 – Enforce the 2nd Amendment as it was intended.
4 – Support the 10th Amendment and States’ Rights.
Other serious issues include: Obamacare, Reproductive Rights, The Individual Expression of Participation based upon Religious Values . . . Etcetera.
CRUZ IS 100% RIGHT . . . that the future appointment, of the replacement for Scalia, must become a FUNDAMENTAL election issue, where the American People will have to do an enormous amount of SOUL SEARCHING to decide, what kind of country they will want to see in the future.
