A conservative view of national, state and local politics

com. The views expressed in this column are his
and his alone and does not necessarily represent
the views of the Oklahoma Republican Party.
On Saturday Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Associate Justice Kavanaugh
after the U.S. Senate confirmed him in a 50-48 vote. Only one Democrat - Joe
Manchin of West Virginia - voted yes. Manchin is up for re-election in a state
that President Trump won by 42 percentage points over Clinton in 2016, so not
voting for confirmation would likely have sealed his political fate. Two Repub-
licans did not vote - Steve Daines, who was attending his daughter’s wedding in
Montana, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who voted present. Murkowski had
said she would vote no, but since the outcome was apparent, she voted present.
A Supreme Court Justice is sworn in immediately and as Kavanaugh was being
sworn in by former Justice Anthony Kennedy, protesters pounded on the Supreme
Court’s doors.
Liberals know what is at stake- it remains unclear if conservatives do. With
the seating of Kavanaugh, the SCOTUS is controlled
by judges who subscribe to a ‘literalist’ interpreta-
tion of the Constitution for the first time in modern
history. Not all are strict literalists, but they are a far
cry from the ‘structuralist’ interpreters Hillary Clinton
would have appointed. If Trump doesn’t accomplish
anything more than seating these two Supreme Court
Justices (Gorsuch and Kavanaugh) in his presidency,
he has sealed a conservative legacy not even Ronald
Reagan could accomplish.
Senator Chuck Schumer, (D-NY), the minority
leader of the Senate, held a news conference after the
vote and said the only thing that will change America
is ‘through the ballot box.’ Schumer is right, but that
doesn’t appear to be the shared sentiment of many
liberals. Protests and harassment of conservative
elected officials continue. Some conservatives say
the libs should accept defeat, but no person with true
convictions should ever ‘accept defeat,’ but they
should accept reality. Politics is the art of the pos-
sible. Many, on both sides of the aisle, expect the im-
possible and will not accept the possible. They reject
majority rule. They would rather have nothing than
something. If you get involved in politics, you’re
going to win some and you’re going to lose some, but
when you lose, you roll up your sleeves, work harder
in the next election cycle. It’s fine to oppose policy
you don’t agree with. It’s acceptable to ask elected
officials to justify their vote. It’s not ok to threaten
them with bodily harm or harass them in public.
The divisiveness of the Kavanaugh hearings and
vote have some saying the United State is more
divided than at any point in our nation’s history, but
that is not true. Between 1861 and 1865, America
fought a Civil War, where over 620,000 Americans
died. America is not on the brink of civil war, but it
appears dissolution could be on the horizon. At some
point, the people paying the bills may elect to not be
a part of a liberal America, where everything is free.
They may grant the liberals their wish and secede
from the union. That’s becoming more and more vi-
able every day.
