    They are willing to destroy this country

    This is absolute insanity. They have gone too far before, now they are talking the destruction of the Supreme Court of the United States.

    We have to get them ALL out of office, or face the destruction of America:

    This Could Be The Beginning Of The End Of The Supreme Court As We Know It: Conservatives lay the groundwork for blocking all of Hillary Clinton’s nominees.

    I'd like to believe that this is scare talk, but after they've held the country hostage with an effort to shut down the government, and run a loony for president, I'm not sure it is.

    Makes me want to puke.

    I can not believe they could even consider something like this. The system was set up to curb any attempt to use one branch against the other.

    If the balance is broken,then the whole thing is in extreme danger.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    As a technical matter, an even numbered court is not without precedent. It's impractical, yes but not unprecedented. It originally operated at 6 and it also operated at 10 for a while. We can do it again if we absolutely have to. With that said, the Republicans can only play this game if they hold the Senate and their senators stay united. Right now, the party is split between standing behind a man who has turned Texas into a battleground state and trying to cut ties despite their base still backing crack pot. Republicans maintaining control of the Senate in a united fashion is by no means sure. There is a non-zero chance that this election will fracture the GOP.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    They also said they'd do the same thing for Obama's nominees. It's unconstitutional, but they're the courts- they're the final say on the constitution.

    I want election day to be over, but I'm almost more apprehensive about what may happen immediately afterwards. Both sides have violent factions and are more concerned with winning than with what will happen to the country as a whole. We the people are just collateral damage.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom?

    I hope the GOP burns, and the Democratic Party as well. They're corrupt and broken to the core.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    This is what I'm really worried about. Based on Trump's rhetoric, I wouldn't be surprised if he calls people to take up arms against Clinton after the election or something. The worrisome thing is, Republicans have more guns per capita (most likely) than the rest of the population. It just makes me wonder if the trigger will finally be pulled on all the pent up rage that's been building up in this country.

    Though I admit, it's a bit of a conspiracy theory on my part, but I can't help but worry about it.

    I guess armed uprisings against warmongering dictators that steal elections are only acceptable in other countries like Libya and Syria. Well, I suppose Secretary Clinton doesn't support it because the US doesn't need to steal oil from the US.

    Lol interesting point. I wouldn't participate in any uprising like that either way, but who knows what Clinton, or even the military would do, if that were to happen.
