2. I kept trying to tell the Bernie or Bust people that this was about the courts and they didn't care.

They said if Trump was elected it would "blow up the system", well it did for the next 50 years.

3. But when the Court overturns Roe v. Wade, strikes down Obamacare, etc.

they will have what, in a way, they really want. Because they will blame it on Hillary, demand that everyone admit she had no right to be the nominee, and scream that Bernie would have won.

That was their priority in 2016, and that will be their priority moving forward.

6. Not all Christian colleges and universities

are cranking out degrees to RWNJs. Many teach about their traditions and teach respect for them while offering degrees that are completely secular.
