To approve SCOTUS nominee now would be suicide.

Many in government, the media and we sitting around the dinner table have recently lamented and reported on it. It is an ongoing theme in today’s socio-political environment . “It”, is an evaporated body of centrists. “It” is also any form of loyal opposition.  “It” was the middle ground and it was business as usual.
We are as polarized a society as that of Pre civil war America. Compromise is   anathema to both sides as it only means that you caved in to the other side’s will. Neither side feels that their elected officials are doing what we elected them to do. They tell us one thing, are elected and then do something else altogether. We the people are angry.
The situation we face now with SCOTUS is one of the utmost import. This could fundamentally change the landscape of US politics and law for many years to come.
Our country, administered by what is arguably the most leftist administration in US history, could easily slide the rest of the way down into socialism with the stroke of one man’s pen.  One man who’s term is nearly over, perhaps the lamest of lame ducks in US history.
His side of the aisle will argue for immediate consideration and approval of their nominee against their own arguments of just a few years before as if that never happened. They will argue that POTUS was elected and then re-elected as recently as 2012 and thus has the mandate of the people.
To this argument we on the right must respond, stating that there was another election in 2014 that removed his mandate in a huge way giving control of both houses to the opposition.  There was and still is very good reason for that.  A lot of us do not like or want that “hope and change” thing as its turning out. You see, we ended up paying for it, so, we decided in 2014 to stop it.
It’s also apparent to us now that the will of the people only counts with this administration as long as it is in lockstep with the ideals of this administration.  If it is not, then this administration simply bypasses that inconvenience in the end with a pencil whipping of the Constitution via executive order.
Obviously, for one who thinks as i do, there is no compromise left. We may never, ever agree to any nominee or anything else this administration proposes and absolutely feel justified in doing so.  This administration does not serve my needs or wants at all. This idiot’s utopia being created here now  is not my America.
