The last time we had a Supreme court vacancy it was 4 1/2 months farther out to the next election than it is this time. And we were told that it was best to wait for that next election so the people’s voice could be heard. Never mind there was no precedent for that because it was apparently just the right thing to do. Will we stick to that this time also – the next election is much closer, so it seems fair!
The country is changing, and it has been for a very long time. But some things don’t change. Like those being in power with the most to lose finding ways to change the rules. Or the voting lists or district lines. And most things just don’t have the moral clarity like separating children to get enough “normal” people to speak up. But the rest of us at least will be learning to no longer stay quiet!
