" Americans would rather resist - at the thought of preserving freedom - rather than do something that would be effective in the short run.  "

Turns out our reaction was not effective.  But I get your point.  Trump will figure it out and it will be grand.

We won't lose.  This will further energize his base to get out and vote, it will demoralize the left, and will show their ineptitude and petulant childishness.

If Trump goes through with this nomination, the left may decide to not play nice anymore.

Agreed.

There is no authority - I thought it was rhetorical as well as hyperbolic - which is what you always deal with elections.

I hope so.   I think that the election of a SCOTUS re-centers voters on the long-term and important issues for our country.  At least the issues that I care about most.  :)

I voted primarily for Mr. Trump for what he said he'd do for SCOTUS - and he did it.  I assume he will do it now, or later too.

Other than that - it's health (Covid) and economy.  I think that we have done the best we could under the circumstances.   Help is on the way.

As selfish as this sounds:  Like many people - I do a lot of good to help a lot of people - I don't just try  and I don't just do do stuff to make myself feel better - I do things that create better opportunities for others/many.  Lots of us do.   BUT - I'm a firm believer that you need to make yourself strong before you can help others in a meaningful way.   And for a majority of Americans I think it would be health, economy, law/order - that helps us to become strong personally - and enable us to enact and support meaningful change for the disadvantaged.   You and I could disagree about that.  But it's the lifeguard mentality - don't try to save others if you're not a strong swimmer - you both could die.   I understand how to operate under the past 50 years of US organization and operation.  I don't know (and am afraid) of the potential huge changes to that organization and operation from what I see portends for our future if Biden wins (who will make any change necessary - then never have to live with the consequences). 

Anyways - we're back again with SCOTUS.   After the last few years of Dems going radical (did you see AOC's latest comments literally urging people to radicalize???) the SCOTUS is again what could keep or change our course as a nation for the next 20 years.   Depending on who you are - that's probably going to be the last best-20-year periods for a lot of GEAers.  I hope people who feel as I do - feel this will be a critical vote...and go and press the lever.

Opinion from Thomas Lifson:

The dimmer bulbs in the Dem chandelier are openly stating their intention to pack the Supreme Court should the party win the Senate and the Oval Office. This hands an opportunity to every GOP candidate for the Senate (incumbent or challenger) to put his or her opponent on the spot, and demand a public commitment to either reject or endorse the announced plan to expand the number of seats on the court and appoint an ironclad progressive majority. (snip) Either they repudiate the scheme or they risk losing.

Hell, even if they repudiate that idea, that means zilch about what they would actually do if elected.  Politicians never lie do they?

Actually, I think that all these threats from the Dems work in favor of the Pubs.  There have been threats to continue or increase the riots if the Dems don't get their way.  Now they're threatening to pack the Supreme Court with Socialist Dem judges if the Dems get control of the Senate.  All these threats simply make the Pubs more determined than ever not to let the Dems get control, and it should give the Independents pause about voting for such immature behavior.

Agree - and I think it turns swing voters away from "crazy" to more conservative (predictable).

Considering the way the Dems have tried to cheat for 4 years, I see no problem with seating a SC Judge now. 
I don't think it's critical to do it now, as long as they will do it during lame duck time, if Trump loses.  
 
Nominating a female now could help with the females some say are not voting for Trump, although with the riots that idea doesn't make sense. 
And with a female nominated, that blocks the Dems from coming up with women who were "raped" 30 years ago.
