Judicial shoo-ins

In the second paragraph, the Declaration of Independence specifically states, “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal.”

My fellow Democrats in the U.S. Senate did the unthinkable when it changed the filibuster (cloture) rules. It erected the ultimate fence in favor of Democrats and against the rest of the citizens of the United States.

The Democrats now have opened our judicial system to suspicion. Will the letter of the law of our land apply equally if you are a Republican or independent?

Late Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd wrote many of the parliamentarian changes 20-plus years ago to upset Republicans and now they frustrate the Democrats. It is not cloture that needed to be changed.

What previously passed as a judicial nominee will now be a judicial appointee. The Democrats have the voting majority in the U.S. Senate; the only outcome will be Democratic judges.

Americans look at what Democrats have done recently, not what they are saying. Politics, first, last and always by Democrats regardless of the topic should be prevalent in your mind. If you are not a Democrat or not a good enough Democrat, how will you be treated?

There is a quote from a prominent powerful American Democratic politician that tells it all: “Punish your enemies, reward your friends.” Alas, all men are no longer equal. Be very afraid, America; be very afraid for our country. and our progeny.
