    Satire Dems: 'We May Have Lost The SCOTUS Seat, But At Least We Kept Our Dignity'

    U.S.—Democratic leaders consoled themselves from their failure to stop Brett Kavanaugh... by reminding the nation that although they lost the SCOTUS seat, they were able to keep their dignity.

    As liberal protesters banged on the doors of the Supreme Court and attempted to claw them open, Senate Democrats calmed their constituents by pointing out that they were able to be the bigger person in all this.

    "At very least, we didn't drag our political process to new depths and make ourselves look like petulant children," said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. ... "We could have tried to utterly destroy a man's life and turn to increasingly transparent obstruction tactics ... We could have screamed and cried when it looked like things weren't going to go our way ... We ... showed ourselves to be the mature ones." ...
    "Let it not be said that we did nothing." - Dr. Ron Paul. "Stand up for what you believe in, even if you are standing alone." - Sophie Magdalena Scholl
    "War is the health of the State." - Randolph Bourne "Freedom is the answer. ... Now, what's the question?" - Ernie Hancock.

    1- the GOP platform means nothing. 2- Taking a principled stand isn't going to kamikazi his career if he does it right.

    No one is trying to convince anyone of anything. Rand just simply needed to explain his position and ride out the storm. But he was weak and didn't want to withstand the pressure when it mattered.

Rand has been the number one defender of the fourth amendment. When they polled the Republican party on this issue in 2016 we were in the minority. This happened during the debates when he had that back and fourth moment with Chris Christie.
    Principle is about doing what is right, not what is popular.
