Alert: Help put a constitutionalist on U.S. Supreme Court

Feb. 2, 2017 -- You are needed to drum up overwhelming support for Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court of the United States.

The evidence is that Neil Gorsuch is a dependable constitutionalist:

• Pro-life on abortion
 Against assisted suicide
• For man-woman marriage
• For religious freedom
• Strongly for the original intent, structural limitations, and actual text of the United States Constitution.


As Gorsuch said Jan. 31, 2017 when he was nominated by President Donald Trump:

"Standing here in a house of history, I'm acutely aware of my own imperfections and pledge that if I am confirmed, I will do all my powers permit to be a FAITHFUL SERVANT of the Constitution OF LAWS of this great country."

And constitutional expert and proven patriot Senator Ted Cruz said Gorsuch's nomination is "a home run" and a "big, big deal."

Tell "Swing State" Senators to Confirm Neil Gorsuch

Democrats from "swing states" are the legislators you need to call, because they could lose reelection if they don't vote for a constitutional Supreme Court justice.

This article in Real Clear Politics describes the pressureAt the heart of Democrats’ dilemma is an unusually challenging Senate map ahead in 2018, which will feature 10 of their incumbents running for re-election in states where Trump won. Were Democrats to block Gorsuch for months to come, their obstruction could begin to impact those frontline races.

“If they continue to delay this for a year or two, I think there will be a consequence for states that Trump carried in a big way,” said Sen. Thom Tillis, a North Carolina Republican. “If you take a look at North Dakota, Montana, Missouri, Indiana and West Virginia, they’re all states that Mr. Trump carried by 17 points or more. I think the real people in those states are expecting action, and all those states have Democrat incumbent members who are up in 2018.”
