Barack Obama is expected to nominate his first Supreme Court Justice today and insiders say the nominee will be Sonia Sotomayor. Sotomayor is not a centrist nor a moderate. She is a full-bore liberal who may believe that the federal bench has the responsibility and authority to make laws.
Republicans are already running from a filibuster because she is Hispanic to avoid alienating the rapidly growing Hispanic population. To the GOP: What will it take for you to have some convictions and integrity that exceed your lust for power? Stand up for what you believe in, do what is right and if you aren't re-elected, so be it.
One theory that has been lofted is to let Obama and the liberals run wild passing every socialist piece of legislation they can get through and filling the federal benches with their kind. Then, in 2010 and 2012, after Americans have seen the truth, conservatism will rise once again. However, letting these kamikaze pilots fly this country unimpeded could end up in a ball of flames.
