Right now, there is a huge controversy over the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice. This is a enormously important political issues as it will shape Supreme Court decisions for decades.
I am a social liberal and a fiscal conservative… which in today’s political environment means I am very opposed to both parties in some ways and very supportive of certain policies. The Republicans have been limiting individual freedoms greatly and have started to turn into a nationalist / racist party instead of standing for smaller government like they used to. The Democrats are spending money foolishly and focusing on silly issues. This is a bad time to live as discourse has become hot and angry instead of rational.
I do think that the Democrats have a very strong incentive to dig up accusers against Kavanaugh, even if they have no evidence to support things. I think many people would be happy to make false accusations in order to avoid having a Supreme Court Justice from the other party.
I am afraid of the world we live in now where you are presumed guilty until proven innocent instead of the other way around. Sexual predators should face very stiff penalties, but the mere accusation of sexual misbehavior has now become enough to destroy people’s lives.
A concern I have is that Kavanaugh appears to have lied about being a virgin till well after college based on his own comments in his yearbooks. If he lied about that, would he lie about other things?
Another concern is that all of his writing has not been released from previous work. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
