    Funny and not funny – I thought it was so staged when Bernie Sanders came out hollering and swinging with everyone behind him holding signs to stop Kavanaugh right after the Trump speech – they must have had signs ready to go for whoever the pick was!! People were heard yelling “Stand up for your freedom, our values”……really? He hasn’t spent a lifetime doing that already? And where do those words fit within Democratic Socialism?

    It makes sense when you understand that they believe that freedom is something the government gives you.

    The premise itself makes no sense to us, but that’s how they think.

    The left has a different view of justice than the right. Our ideal is “blind” justice – justice that is dispensed equally on all regardless of race, religion, wealth, or position. The left’s ideal, as envisioned by Herbert Croly, is quite the opposite. And they’re increasingly open about their desire for judges to “put their thumbs on the scale” and shape society to their whim du jour.

    This is what helps me understand people: those on left only value case-by-case fairness of outcome while those on the right care about fairness of opportunity from application of rules.

    Plus, the purpose and use of power.

    The application of which the left strives for and thrives in while the right accepts as a necessary, and rare, restraint.

    I was all for Amy Coney Barrett as Trump’s nominee, but Kavanaugh is such a mensch, such an average looking choice for the Court, he highlights the insanity of the “Resistance”.
