All one has to do is to ask the opposite question. What if President Reagan had not appointed and had confirmed 400 judges at various levels? How would that have worked out?

And Bush appointed 327 plus two to the Supreme Court.

According to Donald Trump US looks like carnage. That's how it worked out.

We can only ask how it actually worked out, and the answer (according to Trump) is that it resulted in carnage.

Actually he's just appointing right wing radicals who are eager to make up the law as they see fit.

Anyone who thinks someone like Scalia was somehow above that is delusional. He made decisions and then he went looking for justifications and he'd wrap it all up in some vague nonsense about originalism.

Anyone who expects anything better from this crop of judges is disconnected from reality. They're there to push a right wing, corporatist, anti-citizen agenda.

Actually, you're hoping for a totalitarian dictatorship that will subjugate people to the point that they are like the formerly human automatons, described in "1984".

Where is his big plan that will cover everybody, cost a fraction of the price and the government pays for everyone? Forgot about that one, huh?

This is mainly why I support Trump.

Trump is the person who can do the country a HUGE service by making solid appointments to the various Federal courts. This will not permanently turn-things-around, as a lot of people hope-for....but it will delay the coming crumbling-chaos that is closing-in on the USA.

Do you realize that every president appoints hundreds of judges? Reagan appointed 400, Bush nearly 400, Obama nearly 400, Clinton nearly 400. So, every president does the same HUGE service.

So only conservatives know how to interpret the constitution, besides who knows how a judge will rule. The problem with some of these appointments is they are far from being the best qualified, appointing radical justices that just reflect your ideals is a large mistake. The courts have been isolated from politics for the most part, but Trump has done is best through ignorant claims to politicize every judgment, even Trump university.
