"My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."
thats because she knew what she would do given the situation
You can't un-cross that Rubicon
We're in the Late Republic period already. Might as well get things over with.
To quote a tweet, "girl power is when you don't retire at 77, so that a decade later your replacement can be tom cotton or ted cruz." RBG was selfish, elitist, and racist. She voted for all oil pipelines going through native lands, she voted for all crime bills, she called Colin Kaepernick an idiot, etc. Even Kavanaugh hired more non-white people than RBG.
Moderator Action: We already have a SCOTUS thread, so from now on, please restrict this thread to matters about Ginsberg's life, legacy and so on. Thank you.
In my staunch-Republican days, I thought of Justice Ginsburg as kind of an ideological arch-rival that was bent on undermining Constitutional governance. Now, I can’t say I have the same view. I think if I read some decisions or dissents written by the court, I feel like I can at least understand her reasoning and maybe even agree with the decision even if I’m not happy with its conclusions insofar as they affect policy.
Despite those disagreements, the loss of Justice Ginsburg is a loss to good Constitutional government; I hope her replacement is as competent as her.
