Dark Horse… A Good Start?


Conservative thinking is challenged, derided, sneered at, condemned… from the moment it appears.

That means that “Conservatives” (really: Constitutionalists) hold an extremely tenuous 5-4 margin on the court today (Roberts-Alito-Thomas-Kavanaugh-Gorsuch vs. Sotomayor-Kagen-Breyer-Ginsburg).
