In addition to the littany of political, economic, and security reasons that Obama must be defeated, there is this: Next year, 5 of the 9 supreme court justices will be over 70 years old.

We just barely dodged a legal bullet with Heller on what should have been a slam dunk for the second amendment. Let that fanatic start appointing fellow big government marxists, and that will only be the first of our rights that will diminish and/or fall.

Don't be so sure that McCain will appoint true Conservatives, especially after what he said about Alito:

That was the background for conservative John Fund's Wall Street Journal online column the day before Florida voted. Fund wrote that McCain "has told conservatives he would be happy to appoint the likes of Chief Justice Roberts to the Supreme Court. But he indicated he might draw the line on a Samuel Alito because 'he wore his conservatism on his sleeve.' "

Understood, but there is just practically no way he would do as badly as Osama

Night & day difference. Pity some of those who want to vote for a 3rd party can't seem to grasp this simple concept...................

The one big reason to vote for McCain over Obama ? I feel that there are a thousand, no, ten thousand reasons. Perhaps even millions.

Well the REAL fear here is that Scalia or Thomas could have health problems and be replaced before the liberal Justices then we'd see if only for a short time liberals dominate the court and WOW that would pretty much burn the Constitution as we know it.

Everyone assumes that Obama would just replace liberal Justices with liberal Justices, but keep in my mind it is always possible for a Conservative Justices to have health issues or die suddenly. Even a year of a liberal majority Court would destroy this country. You seriously wouldn't know you were in the USA anymore unless you looked up at a flag pole.
