    The stakes just got way higher, Politics

    One of my biggest fears with the clown we have in the White House has always been the authority to appoint Supreme Court justices which are life time appointments. The SCOTUS is probably the most important part of our government and it is of the utmost importance that it remains completely bipartisan. 9 justices for the purpose of making the most important decisions that effect us all and the odd number for a tie breaker when the court is divided.

    God bless Justice Antonin Scallia who died today after a quail hunting outing. He was one of our most cherished justices and a steadfast believer of the Constitution as it was written and his interpretations were top notch in every decision. My condolences to his family and friends but a very sad day for all of us.

    The fool on the hill may now have the ability to appoint yet another full blown liberal to the court and this will be the death nail to all that we see as Constitutional. With the passing of Justice Scallia and an appointment of a left leaning lunatic of Obama's choice we could certainly see our freedoms and the written words of the Constitution going straight to hell.

    Say a prayer tonight for the justice and his family and keep it in your head and hearts that we will be able to block any appointment by Obama that will have a devastating effect for many years to come. You young guys and gals better take a serious look at just what something of this magnitude could mean for you and your children in the future. You do not have to follow politics to understand just how important this loss could be. Presidents will come and go but the Supreme Court makes the decisions we all have to live by and the wrong lifetime appointment to this branch of our government could destroy the life and liberties we love and honor.

    Amen. So many decisions lately have been 5/4, our rights balancing on the edge, things could change quickly, for the worse very soon. God Bless and Save America, condolences to his family.

    At the risk of sounding like a pessimist, I believe it would still be wise to be prepared for the inevitable.

    Yup! The fool on the hill just took a few minutes out of his round of golf to go on the TV and let us all know that he plans to make an appointment as soon as he gets back from everlasting vacation.

    Don't be fooled. Justice Scallia was a thorn in his side on almost every issue and BHO along with Hillary and Harry Ried are dancing in the streets at his death.

    You really are not informed enough to discuss this topic here. Please go do some research then take a long nap then eat something healthy then return for intelligent discussion. I will be patient.

    The most lasting powerful influence a president has is the appointment of a supreme Court Justice. I fear the long term consequences of yet another Obama socialist appointee.

    There are three other Supreme Court Justices that are more than likely need to be replaced with in this next Presidency, Kennedy, Ginsburg and Breyer. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ginsberg announce her retirement so Obama can appoint two justices and cement his "legacy". I believe this is a real possibility. It will need to shake out here in the next couple of days on how this could actually play out. As much as Cruz wants to hold up these nominations, it's the President that has the authority to make them. The Senate either confirms or rejects those nominees. Can they delay this for the next 10 months? I wouldn't think so. The longest confirmation took 109 days. They could reject a few of his nominees but then they would start to look like obstructionists if this goes on too long.

    Then the next two Justices will be appointed by the next President. If the Democrats win the White house this will mean four more liberal leaning Justices added to the remaining 2 left leaning justices. The argument that the Constitution has just recently become a "living breathing document" forebods the beginning of the end I fear.
