This Arrived in My Inbox and I Think It Makes a Good Point

Supreme Court Of The United States  

Some people have brought up the fact that they won't vote for the Republican nominee if the eventual nominee is not the man they wanted. I just want to put something in perspective.
 Justice Scalia's seat is vacant.
Ginsberg is 82 years old
Kennedy is 79 Breyer is 77
Thomas is 67.
Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75. These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology. Think about that... 7-2. If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate. Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period. Anyone and Everyone who is saying that they won't vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever. Whoever is the GOP nominee ... go VOTE for the GOP Nominee! Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who had voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason) .... and the result was four additional years of B.H.O.
AND ONE FINAL THOUGHT , she's already on the record as saying that her buddy, B.H.O. "would make a great Supreme Court Justice."
So you aren't sure what sort of justices Trump will appoint?  Could they be worse than the ones the Hildabeest will pick?:

The one thing that suggests Trump might make better picks is that Ann Coulter is in his camp, and presumably in a position to advise. She's gone on some nutty tangents in recent years, but not on matters of the Constitution.
