    Why I Voted For Trump...

    The bottom line:

    'Historic milestone': Senate confirms 150th Trump judicial nominee

    The U.S. Senate confirmed President Trump’s 150th judicial nominee Wednesday, helping to fulfill the president’s campaign promise to remake the federal bench with a conservative bent.

    Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham called the number of confirmations a “historic milestone.”

    “These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come,” the South Carolina Republican said.

    Six district court nominees won confirmation Wednesday, bringing the president’s total number of appointed judges to the lower federal courts to 105. Mr. Trump has also appointed 43 circuit court nominees and two Supreme Court justices since taking office.

    Just a side note:

    Supreme Court allows broad enforcement of Trump asylum rule

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is allowing nationwide enforcement of a new Trump administration rule that prevents most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States.

    This was also a big reason I voted for Trump, other than it was a vote against Hillary. I would have voted for anyone other than Hillary, even Jill Stein. But Trump's promise to replace liberal judges with conservative ones was a big issue to me. That is the only way we can ever hope to stop the judicial abuses that we have seen like forcing bakers to make Gay wedding cakes and legalized abortion.

    So instead of making a case against abortion etc that would persuade existing judges to adopt your views and change the laws, you're appointing new judges that already agree with you and who will change the laws regardless of whether there is any reason to do so.

    Your entire strategy is an admission that you have no legitimate arguments and all you can do is subvert the legal process, and you voted for Trump because he promised to do so.

    What argument would change the mind of a pro-abortion leftist, Roy? (And judges don't change laws)

    Naw, it's not an either/or. If you're hungry and drowning, I'd focus on rescuing you from the water before offering you a cheeseburger.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    It won't if you don't even try.

    Since when was abortion or discrimination "politics" anyway?

    Supreme court judges can nullify laws and reverse previous decisions, right?

    That's two solutions to two different problems, not two solutions to one problem. Anyway, it misses the point. A better analogy would be if you can't afford the bus fare so hijack the bus instead.

    Well, no. That's the strategy we're trying to defeat. The left has been subverting the legal process for years. Conservatives, pretty much by definition don't agitate for change (other than change back to the status quo ante).
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom
