Today’s inevitable but still painful betrayal by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) on the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sent a shockwave through the nation as we try to grapple with the fact that a suspected rapist, known liar, and spoiled brat is soon to accept a lifetime position on our nation’s highest court.
Not only that, he was nominated by an illegitimate president who has been accused of committing treason to win the presidency, and the seat on the court itself opened up in the first place thanks to a backroom deal by Justice Kennedy.
Considering that President Obama had a Supreme Court seat stolen from him by the Republicans and this second seat was rammed through with such controversy and opposition from the rest of the nation — Kavanaugh was a historically unpopular pick even before the sexual assault allegations became public — it’s clear that the legitimacy of the Supreme Court has been called into serious question.

The former top strategist to the late Sen. John McCain, Steve Schmidt, took to Twitter to perfectly summarize what the ascension of Brett Kavanaugh to our nation’s highest court will mean for us.
The price of Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the the SC is incalculably high. It will shatter the institutional integrity of the Court and eviscerate standards and expectations for both honesty and non partisanship in Judicial nominees for many years.

President Trump and the Republican Party are doing everything they can to delegitimize and dismantle our republic as we know it and usher in a dystopian plutocracy from which voting won’t be able to save us from. This upcoming election might be the most momentous in American history, and we can’t afford to lose.
