    This. I suspect and fear that Trump is just a (hopefully) eight year speed-bump on the Progressive's way to the Progressive promised land. I'm sure they don't realize the implications of actually reaching their promised land. The Dems have been playing the long game for decades while amassing personal fortunes. The Pubs just amass personal fortunes.

      This sums it up perfectly. The demographics are going to eventually win. Depressing.

        It looked thus in 1968, 74 etc. Then...Reagan. I’m not suggesting today is the same, just that hope is grounded.

          I can predict almost anything, except the future. It would not be surprising if the Millenials' kids told their parents to shove it. They may demand freedom rather than socialism.

            The Republican Party is dead. It was dead before Trump. Trump just hijacked the name Republican and the Republican election machinery to win the election. He is more like the old line Southern Democrat populists but without the racism. The old Democrat Party is dead and has been dead for a long time. I see the two parties being the Globalist-Socialists and the Nationalists but just carrying over the old names of Democrat and Republican. I feel we are going to be hit with a Socialist tidal wave. Obama was just a pre-cursor.

            Like him or hate him Trump is certainly a unique and fascinating figure on the American political stage.

              Maybe the Pubs should arrange for her to spend the weekend at the same hunting lodge Scalia did.

                Some people seem to think she will be forced to resign soon. She needed help to get in the vehicle the other day from a wheelchair.

                I suspect that she can find accommodations for her physical problems, at least for a while. If she doubts her mental capacity, she might consider resigning. Even then she needs to be convinced that her replacement would be sharper. In short, don't count on anytime soon.

                To quote Tony and Maria from Bernstein's Westside Story, "Only death will part us now"

                Ginsburg isn't going anywhere until the Reaper comes to get her.

                    You're not the only one who has thought that or written that. But I don't think Ginsberg is the hunter that Scalia was. ;)

                    I am hoping Ruth Bader Ginsburg can get better. Then retire in the next year or two. But right now the Democrats are down a Supreme Court Justice because she can't work right now for obvious reasons.

                      Actually, she's functioning as well as Hillary. Maybe she should run for President.

                      I think I've mentioned it before, but I don't see the "progressive" agenda as being inevitable.

                      Most millennials actually like conservative fiscal policies when stripped down and asked in a non-political context. Part of the problem has been that most millennials haven't advanced to the point in their careers where they're making decent money and have more to lose from generous social welfare programs. The old Churchill quote about "if you're not a conservative by your 40s, you're an idiot" tends to apply here: as people earn more money, gain world experience, and raise a family--conservative policies and values start to become more important.

                      I see that in my 16 y.o and most of her friends. Not sure they are the majority though pretty sure their parents are conservative.

                      It doesn't help either that they have leftist beliefs pushed on them from grade school to college and by most of the media. Something also will have to be done about Google etc. being able to manipulate what is allowed to be heard so much.

                          The 25th Amendment says if the President becomes incapacitated or is unable to carry out his duties that he can be removed from office. There should be something like this for Supreme Court Justices. Ginsberg is obviously not able to carry out her duties but is just being kept in office for political reasons.

                            Update: Stricken with Pneumonia, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg about to Retire from the Supreme Court.
                            ------------------------------

                            Not sure how reliable this place is or if its a fake news pushing site but they claim they reported about her cancer previously. If she does have pneumonia in her condition it would hard to overcome that.

                                You may be right but I see the Dems going Left, the GOP going Nationalist and possibly an Independent "Freedom Loving" Libertarian movement filling the vacuum. That is my hope.

                                If it aint in the Constitution, let the states deal with it. If you want Freebees... move to Cali.

                                But then I dream a lot.
