Former U.S. Education Secretary Bill Bennett penned an opinion piece on his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, saying that "nothing on the home front is more important that the Supreme Court" and that Clinton would stack the bench with liberals.

"Our country can survive the occasional infelicities and improprieties of Donald Trump," Bennett wrote. "But it cannot survive losing the Supreme Court to liberals and allowing them to wreck our sacred republic. It would reshape the country for decades."

Clinton hasn't announced her potential Supreme Court nominees should she win the White House, but she has voiced her support for President Barack Obama's choice of Merrick Garland, The Hill reports.

Bennett, who served under President Ronald Reagan, cites recent Supreme Court cases like Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, which "was an enormous win for religious liberty," and the Second Amendment cases Heller v. District of Columbia and McDonald v. City of Chicago, saying they "were each decided by just one vote."

"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," Bennett, the author of  "The Book of Virtues," wrote in the article published by Real Clear Politics. "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."
