She'll vote to take away Americans' health care protections, overturn Roe V. Wade, continue to rule against voting rights and will vote to block every single Democratic legislative policy regardless of how completely they dominate the November election.

That's all anyone needs to know.

"Trump’s hand-picked successor to Justice Ginsburg’s seat makes it clear: they intend to destroy the Affordable Care Act & overturn Roe."

-Kamala Harris

Republicans desperately want this to be a fight over her religion, but there are countless policy matters that provide us substantive reasons to oppose her in the present and add court seats in the long term in order to neutralize her.

Right now, everyone on the court is either Jewish (Kagan, Breyer) or Catholic (though Gorsuch has moved to Episcopalian church attendance). Thomas is Catholic, Roberts is Catholic, Kavanaugh is Catholic, Alito is Catholic and Sotomayor is Catholic.

Simply put, she and all others, are INELIGIBLE, according to the Mitch Rule. This is AFTER some have VOTED.

She is a thumb in the eye of feminists. And the right wing is writing posts saying how liberal heads are exploding, and how lovely that is.

Such polls should be multiple choice.

Democrats in Congress and office will attack her on her religion because the US Constitution specifically prohibits doing so.

The Democrats are running a Catholic, nevermind that they did not attack other justices for being Catholic. I have no doubt that Team Trump will want to claim the Democrats are attacking her for being Catholic, but that isn't what they'll be doing.

The attacks will be the obvious ones: Trump nominated her specifically in the hopes that she would rule in ways the modern GOP likes, ie, getting rid of the ACA, chipping at Roe, etc., and that this is a bad thing given that she'll be doing it as part of a loaded court.

Raise three fingers.

Lower them.

Now raise six fingers.


Did you have more fingers held up in the first or second round of this horribly difficult and confusing game?

I had to go with #2 because that one touches on the Roe vs Wade issue. Which is the main concern Dems seem to have. However, that argument can come up and bite them in the ass because many of their members and Biden himself are Catholics. Does the fact that they are interfere with their duties?

So what does that say about Protestants....that they can't pass a bar exam?

The democrats say she will rule to repeal Obamacare.

A lot of people depend on Obamacare for their insurance now. A lot of Trump supporters who are small business people, for example.

They've already started and it IS a "faith-based" attack.

That she will seek to reverse, or at least undermine Roe v. Wade because of her Christian values.

That she will reverse, or at least undermine LGBT rights because of her Christian values.

The best one I've heard is she'll do what the Pope tells her to do.

The problem for conservatives is this: The current Pope is a flaming liberal nutjob.
