One of the defining political events of 2018 will be the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, due to retire in June. His replacement by another Gorsuch would give strict constitutional conservatives a majority on the Supreme Court for the first time since 1936.
This is the big one. This is the one that tips the scales. Roe v. Wade, affirmative action, and a host of other judicial atrocities will, eventually, be overturned by the new conservative majority. Everyone understands what’s at stake. This could well be the big political story of the year.
Soon after the 2016 election was over President-elect Trump offered the vacancy on the Supreme Court to Senator Ted Cruz, who declined. Senator Cruz was determined to maintain his political viability as a possible future President.
That was then, and this is now. Ted Cruz can do more for his country as the fifth solid conservative than he’ll ever do in the Senate. He is not in his natural element in the Senate. And the likelihood of him succeeding Trump in the Presidency is fanciful, at best.
Ted Cruz is a patriot, who wants to be of service to his country. That’s why I think he’s the next Justice of the Supreme Court.
