The reason American voterspicked Trump over Clinton, and the reason they ushered in a Senate majority in 2014 and 2016 and expanded that majority in 2018, is because the constitutional liberties fundamental to our democracy -- free speech, religious liberty and the Second Amendment -- hang in the balance of the court.

I feel like the only reason Ted Cruz matters is because people pay him attention because he never shuts up.

TLDR: "We can, so we're gonna, precedent be damned, we're all hypocrites anyway. Also, Trump's balls taste delicious."

I love how he neatly picks around how they did in the House in 2018, only expanded their Senate majority by about 1 seat in a year that favored them, and completely ignores how they're all but certain to get killed this November.

It's like that site once that showed lots of cherrypicked charts, like one that tried to tie how the economy was across the 2000s to who controlled the House, and just totally ignored everything else.

Cruz trying to explain how the GOP blocking Garland while ramming through Barrett is legit and not a textbook example of the GOP's utter lack of honor, honesty, decency and credibility?

Hahahahaha. ^_^

No. >.<

Wait, the freedom to buy a really big gun that will off many people in a very short period of time? Yes, I can see how that right is very important.

CNN should have prefaced his OP-ED with all his quotes from 2015 on how Obama shouldn't be allowed to nominate anyone in an election year.

Until then, CNN f**k off, and Ted Cruz..f**k off

Exactly what freedoms are at stake here trump supporters? Last I checked even before ginsburg kicked the bucket the supreme court was protecting the 2A reasonably well.

Is freedom to prevent women from having control over their medical decisions really a "right" in your mind? If not exactly what in the flying fark are you talking about?

Ted, just say what you mean.

you want to reserve the right to discriminate against homosexuals and any non binary gender specific person by hiding behind the veil of religios freedom.

you want to force media outlets to publish your lies without reprisal

i want to keep my most dangerous constituents armed to the teeth so they can intimidate my opponents.

Are used to go to cnn.com a lot as a regular news source. That tapered off more and more because of their stupid attempt at neutrality then actually served as a platform for right wing bullshiat. In the last couple months I kind of went back to them because they've been very explicitly calling out Trump. But I saw this opinion piece earlier today with prominent placement on their page, and yeah, I don't think I'll be back for a while.

Yes. Full and complete control over anyone who isn't a white, protestant male.

Cruz is one of my senators. Voted against him in 2018, voting against cornyn this year.

Got a question for the folks that follow this closer than I.
I saw somewhere that last time we had a SCOTUS vacancy during an election year before 2016 was something like 60 years before that. Is that correct? So all of this 'history' and 'tradition' the GOP is using is based off what happened in the first 100-150 years of the country and has very little with how things are done today.

I am pretty sure that McConnell didn't look at history and tradition back in 2016 and is only bringing it up now because it favors the path they want to take.

Thanks, I'll look him up.  I admit, I feel these days like I'm being sucked down an ever-deepening spiral of both Poe's and Godwin's laws, and damn I felt weird trying to figure out how to interpret that photo.

Yeah haha its a pretty texan photo (Malone grew up in the suburbs of Dallas) from what I can tell he's an odd guy but I dont think there are any particular allegations of racism against him. According to the wiki he was pro bernie but anti trump and anti hillary so make of that what you will... Just pointing out that he probably wouldnt be upset to learn about Lemmy's social beliefs assuming he doesnt know already.
