    It is very likely that the next four years will see a President be able to appoint multiple justices to the high court.

    If you value a woman's right to make her own reproductive choices, a court that will favor ordinary Americans and not big businesses as the Roberts court did in Citizens United, that will uphold rights to privacy and limits on Big Brother...you should consider voting for President Obama.

    Governor Romney wants to overturn the Roe decision and will likely be able to accomplish that since two of the three justices, Ginsburg and Kennedy, are currently thought to be votes to preserve a woman's right to choose.

    Just some food for thought.

    Obama is the worst choice one could make if they want reasonable, well thought out Judges on the High Court. Just look who he already put there.

    So how does this work? You start a thread and it fails, so you wait a few more days and start the exact same thread expecting a different result? :lol:

    Fails? It had 500 replies...

    The next 4 years will see a President get to appoint likely multiple justices. These justices will be on the court for decades deciding everything from Roe to your right to expect privacy, to who can buy your politicians....to hopefully getting rid of the War Powers Act.

    There are numerous reasons to vote for or against either major party candidate. I tend to support a woman's choice to maintain her reproductive rights, I heard yesterday that the Koch Brothers (and likely others) will spend more than McCain did in '08, and am in worry over privacy since I work in a field where it is a priority. So I support President Obama.

    If you feel that women have too many rights with their body, that campaign financing is just peachy, and don't value your privacy, Governor Romney is your guy I suppose.

    I never have been able to figure out the connection between "privacy" and "infanticide".

    Only a liberal can justify, promote, and gleefully boast about this "connection".

    With Roberts being the new swing vote, I doubt you have to worry too much about Roe being overturned.

    How about those people who believe that the US Supreme Court should uphold the Constitution as it is written, and not as certain activists want it to read? How should the OP influence their presidential choice?
