Since as you say the courts are so corrupt that whatever the democrats want they get, then what do you suggest that conservatives do about it?

First, I would suggest that you quote me correctly. Maybe as a "street lawyer" you're used to putting words in someone's mouth and then arguing as if they said it?

I never said anything about the courts being corrupt, and I challenge you to show me otherwise.

What I did say was that the Democrats would turn to the courts to try to change the results of the process that Congress put in place, when that process yields a result unfavorable to Democrats. This was in response to the original article that said that the Democrats would have no standing because there was already a remedy in place of Congress' making. I did suggest that Democrats won't accept any results that don't go their way, no matter if they created the process that led to the unfavorable result. I think that history bears that out.

We can debate about whether the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is a favorable court for Democrats to run to. We can debate whether the Ninth Circuit Court, as YOU suggested that I suggested, is a court that gives Democrats whatever they want. We can debate about whether this is corruption or just politics.

All that said, to answer your question about what conservatives should do about it, I have been pretty bold in saying that the problem is weak-willed Republicans in Congress who cower from power, who are afraid to employ maximum leverage, who are inept and always snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, who would rather throw a lifeline to Democrats to save them from the consequences of their own failures, who run away from media-manufactured gaffes and scandals designed to take down strong opponents of Democrats, and on and on. My homepage has my screed on this.

Conservatives need to work to nationalize every election, to form a national slate of candidates on the platform of supporting President Trump's agenda in Washington. The focus should be on the message of sending a team to Washington that will not work to get in the President's way, but will support the President. We need a primary strategy of national ads that list all the candidates as a slate, rather than state-by-state races where Mitch McConnell can control the messaging.

We need a message that demands new, young blood in Washington, people with a fire in their belly to replace the old and tired, get-along-to-go-along establishment GOP that prefers to ride in the back seat of the minority instead of leading the way.

I've said before that time will have its way, and that the entrenched GOP will eventually age out one way or another. The problem is that they are wasting precious time clinging to their personal power instead of grooming the next generation of Republican leaders. We need to fundamentally change the succession plan that gave us Baker to Dole to Lott to Frist to McConnell, and Michel to Armey to Hastert to Boehner to Ryan, and allowed the ousting of Gingrich and Delay.
