...between the Democratic and Republican Parties?
June 13, 2012
Yes, there is, and elections do have consequences.
Willard Mitt Romney appears to be on track to win the GOP nomination for US President. He was not my first choice. He was not my second choice. I will stop there.
If, in fact, Mitt Romney does win the nomination, I will do everything within my power to get him elected. There are four compelling reasons why. Apparently columnist Andrew McCarthy was the first to point them out. I will recount them here.
1) Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia just turned 78 this year
2) Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
3) Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will turn 76 later this year
4) Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg turned 81 earlier this year (she has had cancer twice)
It is possible that whoever is elected this November will appoint replacements for all four of these Justices. It is probable that he will appoint replacements for at least two.
These appointees, upon confirmation, will then be making momentous decisions about America and the lives of her citizens--you and me--for decades to come.
Consider, if you will, a Justice Eric Holder, or a Justice Hillary Clinton.
In addition to working hard to elect Republican candidates here in Shoshone County, I will also work hard to elect whoever the GOP Presidential nominee turns out to be--even Mitt Romney--for those four reasons.
