A ploy for raw power

Appointing a right-wing extremist to the Supreme Court would spell disaster for our democracy. All we need is one more small weight on the side of this power machine and all that we hold dear will get sucked down the proverbial drain of fascism. Even Republicans should fear this if they cherish freedom.
Anyone who is not willing to acknowledge this is living in a fantasy world. Samuel Alito is one of the worse choices; he doesn't fool anyone. We all know that our Supreme Court will be just a puppet court in the future if this man is allowed to tip the scales: A procedure of sorts, going through the motions, a stage show to get the absolute power the neocons so vehemently hunger for.
