Republicans should accelerate confirmation of judges in 2019

Philip Klein, Washington Examiner

For conservatives who care about gun rights, religious liberty, economic freedom, free speech, protecting the unborn, and a whole host of other issues, the composition of the court in the coming decades will be crucial. As openly socialist ideas gain ground among a new generation of liberals, Democrats will be attempting to push the boundaries of central power to realize their goals. A critical mass of judges on the bench who adhere to the Constitution will be a bulwark against this encroachment on individual liberties. If liberals are to transform America, it should at least require the hard work of winning elections and passing legislation rather than being made possible through a judicial shortcut.
