The Most Important Issue of the 2012 Election. Normally I wouldn’t care if Obama won the election. There is not a Republican candidate who can properly articulate conservatism, and like George Bush, they’re likely to embarrass true conservative ideals and set us back politically. Another plus, if Obama won the 2012 election, is that he will no doubt continue to run America in a way that proves that liberalism doesn’t work. This will create a conservative resurgence that would last for years to come, and with a higher likelihood that we could have a truly conservative president with a congress to boot. However, this story changes all of that! Evidently, liberal hero, Supreme Court Justice, and former head of the ACLU women’s rights department, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is stepping down in 2015 at the age of 82. Not to mention that. Mr. living ever changing constitution himself, Justice Breyer is getting old as well! The next president will certainly have at least one opportunity to appoint a Supreme Court justice. He is likely, however, to appoint two. In other words, this is our chance to have 6 solid strict constitutionalist conservatives on the Supreme Court with one moderate. So when it comes to the 2012 election, as conservatives, we all should support whatever dumbfounded Republican candidate that happens to end up on the ballot. This is not an election for teaching a lesson to those Republicans who fail to articulate and abide by true conservatism. This is an election for the spirit of our Constitution. This election is a fight over whether our Constitution is a charter of negative individual liberties and limited enumerated government, or positive collective liberties and further opportunity’s to lead the country in to a system of heavy handed socialism. This is an election to determin if the Constitution means what it says or means whatever liberals want it to. It’s Locke vs. Rousseau, Jefferson/Madison vs. Hamilton, and liberty vs. tyranny all over again. If you take in to consideration Obama's past Supreme Court nominees, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, it is by far the most important issue of the 2012 election!
