My Statement that Orrin Hatch was the Best Choice

Marshall, I agree that Senator Hatch was clearly the best choice. I am always confused when so-called social conservatives support a Senate candidate who is a Democrat. I doubt that such people really understand what happens to the federal bench when a Democrat controlled Senate has the power to “advise and consent” conservative judicial nominees out of the system.

One of the great achievements of Orrin Hatch, beginning in the Reagan years and stretching into the tenure of George W. Bush, has been the gradual building of a more conservative and less activist judiciary. We live in dreadful days, as it is, where unelected and unaccountable liberal judges order legislators to make laws contrary to the will of the people. Can you imagine what it would be like on the federal level if it were not for all the work of the Republican presidents and senators of the past quarter century?

This has been a major part of the quiet, but all important, struggle for the soul of our nation. Senator Hatch has been one of the heroes in this struggle. If Roe v. Wade is ever overturned, it will be because the American people elected enough Republican Presidents and enough Republican Senators to build-up a sufficiently conservative judiciary. The Democrat base seeks abortion on demand. If that offends you, then you should never vote for a Democrat senate candidate. Some are apparently tired of hearing that bit of truth, but attention fatigue does not change the facts. And, that is a fact.
