SO:

WWRBGS?

What would RBG say?  Well what she said the last time a lame-duck president nominated a supreme court justice was that Presidents don't stop being President in their last year in office.   It's their job to nominate and then the Senates job to consent, or not.   RBG also said it creates a bad situation to have important issues come before an 8 man court.

Good point Alf, however, this election might just be too important to lose!

True Alf.  She also said she did not want Trump appointing another one.  She had hoped to hang on until he was gone.

That said, I trust your quote, because, unlike too many of us, she knew how much power there are in words, and how much weight the words of any Justice carry.  The problem is that too many of us do not view it the way the Constitution is written - Equal for all and blind to special interests.  Win or lose it is about the process and following the Constitution.  Today many of us are clinging to those words to get our way, but four years ago we were pushing an different ideology.

I read an interesting analysis that RBG assumed - like most of the progs did - that Hillary would win and she (RBG) could retire quietly and Hillery would pick her replacement. When Trump won, well, everything went into a cocked hat for RBG at that point.

I’ve changed my opinion!  FILL THAT SEAT, DONALD!

Well, we have Ranked-Choice Voting for state and federal offices on the ballot this year!  I know exactly how I’ll vote on that!

For President and Congress, it’s always real clear for me!

SMALL GOVERNMENT!

If the roles were reversed does anyone here honestly think the dems would not proceed with a nomination and a vote.

Of course they would.

Proceed with a replacement. 

Take a script out of the dems playbook.  Shuck an jive.  Float a progressive and then reject them in a vote after the election.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
