Argumentum SCOTUS vindicatus est!
William J. Bennett had it right back in August:
Too many of our rights, liberties, and securities already hang by a one-vote thread. A Clinton Supreme Court would surely do away with them. It is a better bet that a President Trump together with Vice President Pence and a Republican Congress would ensure that Scalia's seat or any other open seats would be filled by a conservative. If you are a conservative who cares about the future of this country, there is only one choice. A vote for anyone else, third parties included, only helps Clinton and brings liberals one vote closer to ruining our republic as we know it.
This sums it up. There was really only one choice for clear-headed conservatives.
I go into considerable detail in Philosophical Aspects of the Trump-Clinton Contest.
