    It is a tragedy of enormous proportion that the Democrats support the killing of over 60,000,000 totally innocent, totally vulnerable human beings, and have the gall to hold up pictures of people they say will be negatively impacted by Judge Barrett's opinion on Obamacare. Is anyone in America really gullible enough to believe this stream of lies?

    If this Trump appointee really had any self-respect and regard for her fellow Americans and their health and lives, she would have had the decency of recusing herself. But we know that her appointment is expressly due to the fact that she has agreed to stop and get rid of any kind of health program for the people, thus allowing the US to keep its status of develolping country in that regard. If her nomination is not stopped, she will be the only member of the SCOTUS to have so wantonly fulfilled her dream, that she didn't care about the number of lives she endangered or even extinguished, to satisfy her own ambition and a bunch of money-hungry loathsome racist deranged old white men. An example of an education going to waste. And she talks about her respect and admiration for RBG. Her own actions show that she's not fit to have RBG name in her Trump-bootlicking mouth.

    Trump and his party has flouted science, social distancing and made a
    mockery of masks, deliberately refusing to wear one in situations where
    it was deemed necessary by hospital or CDC officials.

    Republicans are about to take our healthcare, as we know it, away from us. And, allow for pre-existing conditions again. Vote them out!

    They also want to fix the election if it's close. Vote them all out!

    Trump wants HERD IMMUNITY, which'll expose seniors. 10% of seniors die from covid while survivors are debilitated. Trump cares more about his resort's profit margins than us seniors!

    And the evangelicals, the so called Christian right, and nationalist have been doing all they can in a greater part to destroy it, instead of refining it and making it better. And somehow they believe that when they meet their maker, they will be rewarded for doing all they could on this earth to hurt the sick, the poor, while supporting a party and politicians that promote racism, and selfish nationalism. I do not get how a group of people who say they know something about the good shepherd, votes for, and does all they can that is in exact opposition of what our Lord was all about. It was all about healing the sick, helping the poor and those that are least. There is NO excuse for ANY so called Christian to be in opposition of a plan that tries to protect the sick and save lives. Make it better, refine it, but to destroy it…… In my opinion that decision will come with a spiritual price, sooner or later.

    TO HE WHO HAS EARS LET HIM HEAR. 
    This news media and the democratic party is under the total control of Satan and his evil agencies. All designed for the destruction of our country so that Christianity, democracy, and freedom cannot exist here. This is Satan's way of taking more control of this world. See II Cor 4:3-4, I John @, and I Peter 5:8. America is at a crossroads.

    ARE YOU DISCONNECTED FROM GOD / JESUS / HOLY SPIRIT ?
    Unbelievers cannot believe in God because they have separated themselves from Him by their sins. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6, I Peter 5:5. God said in Jeremiah @, when you seek me you shall find me when you seek me with all your heart". The problem that these people have is that they have never sought God / Jesus with all their heart. This is why they do not know God and reside in the spiritual Kingdom of Darkness where Satan rules and plays with unbelievers like puppets on a string. Blinding them so that they cannot see Jesus Christ, as Satan has an arsenal of tricks, devices, and smokescreens which he deploys.

    The first people who became Christians took place on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 when Peter's preaching convicted many of those gathered there of their sin. When they asked Peter what they should do about their sin Peter said to them as recorded in Acts @ " Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. On that day 3,000 obeyed and God added them to the Church also known as the Spiritual body of Christ. This is still in effect today for those who want to be saved, entering in through the door of the Kingdom which is Jesus Christ

    How can all have free healthcare? If you want to have free health care go to other countries with free health care where people pay higher taxes and wait for at least 3 months to be seen by a doctor at a clinic of the government choice.

    Modern medicine is not traditional medicine people confuse the two. If traditional and modern was both offered people would be healthier. Your health care providers not card holders set the rules by the blocks and lack of education in the options choices and knowledge of what is best based on profits and bottom line of profit off peoples illnesses.

    From what I’ve been watching which is all sides of the political spectrum on this confirmation hearing she seems to follow the law and interpret it as it’s written. If people have a problem with her than you should look to your elected officials because they’re the ones creating the laws she’s upholding. She’s a strict constitutionalist which is what you need as a SC judge.

    I just pray for the day that I see a injured politician or an doctor laid out beside the road asking me to help them. ….The first thing I'm going to say, …. "HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE?" …. And don't tell me how much is in their pocket, … I want to know how much do they have on the bank.
    …And depending on their answer, my 2nd question will be, … "HOW MUCH IS MY HELP GOING TO BE WORTH TO YOU?"
