To Vote or Not

By Joe Milardo

A lot of people have brought up the fact that they won't vote for Trump if he's the eventual nominee. I just want to put something in perspective.

Justice Scalia's seat is vacant. Ginsberg is 82 years old, Kennedy is 79, Breyer is 77, and Thomas is 67. Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75.
These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.

Think about that... 7-2. If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are seemed to be lacking in mandate.

Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.

Everyone saying that they won't vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another Conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life.

  1. Great post Attorney Milardo! This is a great forum, more Middletown conservative voices need to speak out!
    If local non profits can openly support Sanders & accept tax payer money then something has to change!

  2. Unfortunately, there are those who would cut off their nose to spite there face. They need to think long and hard before staying home, if Trump gets the nod.

  3. very good point.. it really doesn't matter who your guy is for president.. i don't care if you swore on your left arm to NOT vote for someone.. you just have to get used to doing everything with your right arm and VOTE REPUBLICAN.. the goal is more senators and congressmen and SCOTUS and we all KNOW how those people ride in on big coat tails...swollow some pride, take a deep breath, and get out and pull the right lever..
