Chicken Little Democrats Predict The Sky is Falling

Post by Lavite » Tue Oct 09, 2018 11:24 am

The hysteria that having five conservatives on the SC will be the end of American democracy is baseless. Historically, their decisions tend to be bipartisan regardless of which party has the alleged advantage.

"As of January 2018, according to the Supreme Court Database, and since 2000, a unanimous decision has been more likely than any other result — averaging 36 percent of all decisions. Even when the court did not reach a unanimous judgment, the justices often secured overwhelming majorities, with 7-to-2 or 8-to-1 judgments making up about 15 percent of decisions. The 5-to-4 decisions, by comparison, occurred in 19 percent of cases."

I would tend to believe that of Thomas, say.

Kavanagh the weepy little bitch? Yeah, not really.

If it’s no big whoop, why did the Repubs unconstitutionally block a vote on Obama’s nominee for over a year?
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!

The sky won't fall until after the midterms. Democrats won't be the ones running around hysterically after that.

I don't think the federalist and the judicial crisis network spent millions to get Kavanaugh on the bench to ensure more 9-0 votes. Just a guess.
