Ruth will soon be gone. One cannot live forever especially with the health battles she has faced.
She is not healthy, but is dying a slow and inevitable death. With her replacement, SCOTUS will be solidly conservative.
In fact, with every judge Tɾυmρ appoints, the judicial system is becoming more conservative, and this will affect us for years or decades to come.
These justices do not need term limits, otherwise SCOTUS would become beholden to the political party in power, and not a separate power.
Had the murder of Justice Scalia resulted in that liberal justice being nominated by σbαmα and confirmed by the Senate in 2016,
Tɾυmρ would have been hobbled and ineffective. Thankfully, the Republican Senate held firm and did not approve σbαmα's choice.
If Justice Clarence Thomas is being considered to replace Chief Justice Roberts, he would be awesome.
Do not forget that Chief Justice Roberts betrayed the USA in his lack of oversight of the FISA courts.
People suspect that Roberts was being blackmailed into voting the lҽϝƚιsƚ agenda due to his indiscretions and weaknesses.
Didn't Roberts travel to Epstein's Island?
