Voting for Supreme Court

Anyone who is undecided between President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney should consider this: The next president will undoubtedly appoint one or more new U.S. Supreme Court justices who will serve for life.

If you want a court whose constituency will echo the court in 2000, whose decision led to George W. Bush’s electoral votes victory (even though Al Gore actually had more votes nationally), then choose Romney.

If you want a court that has approved super PACs contributing millions to sway the electorate, then choose Romney.

If you don’t want that kind of a Supreme Court, by all means vote Obama!
