ANOTHER FLASHBACK: FEATURE ARTICLES. WHAT ARE THE REAL CAUSES OF THE SUPREME COURT CONTROVERSY?

REMEMBERING ALL THE "GOOD THINGS" DONE BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,
DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.  TRUMP FITS RIGHT IN.


Frankfort, Kentucky, State Supreme Court


As the Controversy Continues, with the REPUBLICAN SENATE LEADERSHIP continuing its UNCONSTITUTIONAL STANCE NOT TO MEET WITH ANYONE NOMINATED BY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA TO FILL THE VACANCY ON THE U.S. SUPREME COURT, THE ACTUAL ROOTS OF THE PROBLEM ARE BEING IGNORED.

LETS LOOK AT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY LEADERSHIP, AND SOME OF THE OPINIONS AND STANCES ON ISSUES IN THE RECENT PAST. THE FOLLOWING WERE PROMOTED IN THEIR NATIONAL AGENDA.

-  THE PRESIDENTS ECONOMIC POLICIES WOULD NOT WORK IN 
   SOLVING THE 2008 FINANCIAL CRISIS.

-  AFFORDABLE CARE ACT WOULD RESULT IN RUNAWAY UNEMPLOYMENT.

-  THAT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WOULD DESTROY THE INSTITUTION.

-  IRAN NUCLEAR TREATY WOULD FAIL MISERABLY.

-  THAT THE STATES DON'T WANT TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE.*(SEE BELOW).

These Were the Scare Tactics Pressuring all Americans to Abandon any Desire for Compromise, attempting to Sabotage this Countries Future.  Fortunately, enough Voters and Candidates realized the Danger. While many PROGRESSIVES see the REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP FOR WHAT THEY ARE: 

SELF-CENTERED OPPORTUNISTS WHO DERIVE MOST OF THEIR SUPPORT
FROM THE ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE WING OF THE PARTY. YOU KNOW, THE PRIMARY VOTERS WHO HAVE MADE DONALD TRUMP THEIR RUN AWAY CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT.

REMEMBER, THEY WERE ELECTED TO REPRESENT ONE STATE. THE ONLY VOICES THEY CARE ABOUT ARE THEIR CONSTITUENTS, SO THE FATE OF THE REST OF THE COUNTRY MEANS NOTHING TO THEM.

IF THAT STATE DECIDES THAT THEIR REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS SHOULD BE ANTI- LABOR, AGAINST RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, RACIST, MISOGYNIST etc., WE AS A COUNTRY ARE STUCK WITH THEM YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT. GIVEN TIME, THEY EVENTUALLY RISE TO LEADERSHIP ROLES IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE. WHY IS THAT? 

LONGEVITY, NOT CAPABILITY,
OFTEN COUNTS FOR MORE.

ALLEGIANCE TO THEIR BENEFACTORS,
BRINGS THEM MONEY AND POWER.

TIME IN OFFICE MATTERS MORE,
IN SOME CASES, THAN WHAT YOU DO IN IT.

*Many States realized that the Republican Leadership of the House and Senate, would never support Raising the Federal Minimum Wage.  So in the past few yearsThey have Taken it upon Themselves to do so.

These 29 States: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington,  West Virginia and Washington D.C, now have a MINIMUM WAGE HIGHER THAN THE FEDERAL LEVEL.
