3. That might be true if it weren't for the Supreme Court

Trump is probably going to nominate someone horrific to take Scalia's place. If we're really unlucky and Ruth Bader Ginsberg or even another justice passes away he could nominate one or two more justices.

That would stack the Supreme Court with conservative or even ultra right wing justices for a generation.Even if Democrats got back control of Congress and the Executive branch an ultra conservative weighted court could neuter any advances we might try to make.
