Your story is touching and Merrick Garland may generally be a great guy. However, he won’t be appointed, not necessarily by any fault of his own… but because of the socialist, leftist ideology of this President. That is who is to blame for much of what is wrong in the U.S. today. Justice Scalia must be succeeded by a solid Conservative, not any judicial activist… otherwise, this country is further doomed.
The next Supreme Court nominee is one of the biggest reasons to vote Republican this year. Liberals will still get their chance, if enough Americans are ignorant enough to allow Hillary the status of POTUS. In reality, she should be in jail for her ineptitude regarding Benghazi, her unsecure eMail server… and especially for The Clinton Foundation’s money laundering operation.
