The Ultimate Tragedy of Trump: the End of Our Constitutional Republic

The United States is a Constitutional Republic, whose citizens are subject solely to the rule of law, not men – as men are incapable of ruling justly; state laws which seek to compel a woman to give birth against her will or deny same-sex couples access to marriage law are evidence of that.

And in our Constitutional Republic our rights and protected liberties are not subject to the ‘will of the people,’ our rights and protected liberties are not determined by ‘majority rule,’ they are inalienable, neither bestowed by, nor subject to, any government, constitution, or man.

This will come to an end before the conclusion of Trump’s first term, the consequence of Trump judicial appointments.

Justice Kennedy will likely be the first, replaced by a hateful, bigoted reactionary conservative hostile to the Constitution and its case law, an adherent to the wrongheaded judicial dogma known as ‘originalism,’ where the states will once again be at liberty to discriminate against women and minorities, whose rights and protected liberties will be lost to the hateful ‘will of the people.’

Last, should a Democratic president be elected in 2020, it will be far too late to repair the damage the consequence of Trump judicial appointments.

‘Those [who voted for Trump] cared little about the intricacies of constitutional interpretation. But they got the message that Trump would return rights to those who once were able to control women's reproductive decisions, have an exclusive right to marry, and whose economic interests were protected against threats from "foreigners."’
