End of the American Dream
It is time to admit the truth. Throughout my entire lifetime, Republican presidential candidates have promised us that if we help get them elected they will move the Supreme Court in a more conservative direction. But it hasn’t happened. A Republican has been in the White House for 31 of the last 51 years, and yet the left has enjoyed a virtually uninterrupted string of historic Supreme Court victories throughout that entire stretch. And even though a majority of the justices on the Supreme Court right now have been appointed by Republicans, the left continues to win one major victory after another.
The reason why this has happened is because Republicans have failed over and over again to nominate true conservatives to the Supreme Court. At this point, only Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito can really be considered “conservatives”, and that means that liberal causes will continue to march forward at the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.
