Default Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, died Friday. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas.

The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington surrounded by family. She was 87.

also, America's legal system is so broken that their entire democracy as we know it was essentially resting on the health of a single 87-year-old woman, so... the foreseeable future is not going to be pretty

She was an incredible person, a feminist icon and a trailblazer in many ways. The amount of good she has done in service to the people while holding her position cannot be understated. It's a true loss for the US as a whole, especially considering how that hypocrite Mitch McConnell has already put plans in motion to put a conservative judge in her place despite voting against judges being appointed in Election years before.

RBG upheld the values of her position incredibly well, and sadly, her death will be used as a method to ensure that the Supreme Court falls even further under republican rule. It makes me angry to think that a lot of the good she did will likely be overruled.

Ginsburg could of stepped down while obama was president but instead she gambled with the seat and lost. The Republicans would be foolish to gamble on that seat when they have the power to name anyone they want.

The nomination of Garland was blocked by republicans because it was deemed ‘too close’ to an election, mainly by McConnell and Grahame, if they decide to try and go ahead with it, despite their previous stance, it will make a mockery of the ‘system’

Yup they sure did say that, and the democrats argued that the upcoming election didn't matter it was the sitting presidents privilege to get a vote on his nominee. Do they still feel that way or are the democrats hypocrites too?

Right, there is nothing principled about the Democrats position either. Both sides are arguing from whatever is politically convenient in the moment.

Well considering most of the Republicans said that it would be unjust to nominate an SC judge before an election in 2016, they really shouldn't be outrageous hypocrites and do exactly that now the shoe is on the other foot.

Honestly, being like 'BUT THE DEMOCRATS' is pointless. Republicans enforced a standard in 2016 that they themselves will not abide by in 2020. You can complain about the dems all you want but it's not gonna change the fact that the republicans are massive hypocrites.
