Why Obama MUST be defeated
The Constitution Club ^ | 05-26-11 | Zazu

Recently I have heard alot of fellow political buffs on both sides of the political spectrum claim that who wins the Presidency is irrelevant. The argument goes something like this: politics is just a show, McCain and Obama were chosen for us, and their Presidencies would be identical; the GOP and the Democrats are on the same team, and anyone who thinks his vote makes a difference is buying into the con. I strongly disagree with this sentiment, and can conclusively disprove it with nine simple words. Justice Kagan, Justice Sotomayor, Justice Alito, Chief Justice Roberts. Four recently appointed Supreme Court judges who have changed our nation forever.

Just in the last 10 years our nations social and political landscape has been completely transformed by the Supreme Court. In Bush v. Gore the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to effectively hand the Presidency over to Bush, a single justice voting the other way could have completely changed the fate of our nation. In Lawrence v. Texas laws banning homosexuality were struck down by a 6-3 vote, the decision was a catalyst for a massive political campaign by gay activists which continues to rage across America almost a decade later, recently culminating in the repeal of DADT. Just recently the twin cases of District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago, for the first time affirmed that the 2nd Amendment protected an individuals right to own guns. Both were 5-4 decisions, Americans came within an inch of losing their guns to a judicial repeal of the 2nd Amendment. There will be others as well, with a growing list of states approving of same sex marriage, the issue will go before the Supreme Court this decade, a likely 5-4 decision will settle the issue one way or the other. Anti-abortion activists are gaining ground around the nation with personhood amendments and a variety of legislation to limit abortion, the Supreme Court will have to make numerous decision to determine how far does Roe v. Wade reach, or if it should be eliminated all together.

This is why it matters who is President. Bad laws can be repealed, corrupt legislators can be recalled, unjust wars can be ended; but a Supreme Court judge can sit on the bench for half a century, and the decisions he or she makes will continue to shape America forever. If Gore or Kerry got to chose the two Bush judges, or if McCain got to chose the two Obama justices, America could have been a completely different nation. Ginsburg is a cancer survivor approaching her eighties, Scalia is 75 and overweight, America is one blood clot or bad cell division away from having a solid liberal or conservative majority on the Supreme Court. There is no room for apathy. Conservatives must fight tooth and nail to make sure a real, dependable, and viable conservative wins the nomination, but if the unthinkable happens and we are stuck with Romney, we must not only vote for him, but do so if it means crawling through broken glass. This nation cannot afford another Obama appointment to the Supreme Court, conservatives must do all they can to make sure it never happens.

The article is correct and you need to get over being an idiot. No nation on Earth could survive eight years of this present government. Romney or Donald or Daffy Duck would give us four to eight years of breathing space which we are not going to have with Obunga.

“The survival of The United States of America is at stake”.

Absolutely true. A Chief Excutive determined to fundamentally transform our Republic, and having no qualms about using ex-cutive orders, by-passing the legislative branch to achieve his demonic purposes, MUST BE DEFEATED. Better yet, he should be IMPEACHED!!!

Again sorry, I’m so used to reading the other version of it on FR that my eyes registered it wrong.

I used to believe that America was “president-proof.” Now it seems more like wishful thinking.

It would seem half the country would vote for the candidate most willing to expand govt, broadcast the most "goodies" from the public treasury and try to guarantee equality in outcome.

The other half see's just how damaging that mindset is and prefers smaller govt and more self-reliance, self-determiniation and equality in opportunity.

One of the biggest problems facing this country, as I see it, is how to convince all the "gimme-gimme" folks on the political left (and to be fair, the RINO supporters on the right) to stop seeking their fair-share in the pockets of others. Until that happens, what is their incentive to vote responsibly and how could we reasonably expect anything to change?

It's something I've often wondered about and have always drawn a complete blank. Humans are greedy by nature. They want their food, clothing, shelter, 60" wide-screens, SUVs and $250 sneakers. Asking them to vote for smaller govt is asking them to kick a terribly addictive habit. It *must* be done, but I haven't the slightest clue how. The statist politicians know very well that power is granted to those who give out the most candy. The candy eaters will always want more, so they will elect those who give out the most. It's a bloody catch-22.
