Antonin Scalia has died.
One of the brilliant conservative minds in America, he has been a voice for reason, for the Constitution, and for the protection of life.
This is a tragedy of epic proportions, for his family and for this nation. There has been a razor-thin balance on the court with four conservatives, four hard-core liberals, and a swing vote.
Scalia was not just a conservative vote but a brilliant mind and forceful advocate for sanity in our nation’s judicial system.
Now, one of two things is going to happen.
1. Barack Obama, the most pro-death, abortion loving, constitution – averse president I’ve seen will appoint a replacement for the most conservative voice on the court.
2. The appointment will be bumped till after the election and the stakes of the 2016 vote will go up dramatically.
It would be hard to over-estimate the significance if this sad moment.
If Obama, Hillary, or Sanders appoint the next justice our courts will turn left so dramatically we will get cricks in our necks.
