I’ve been posting on my blog for sometime the many reasons why I will support McCain in the General election. Two big reasons. The Supreme Court and the War on Terror. today Hugh Hewitt wrote about the very real danger of a liberal President on SCOTUS:
There are seven reasons for anyone to support the eventual nominee no matter who it is: The war and six Supreme Court justices over the age of 68.
Folks who want to take their ball and go home have to realize that even three SCOTUS appointments could revolutionize the way elections are handled in this country in a stroke, mandating the submission of redistricting lines to court scrutiny for “fairness.”
“It is undeniable that political sophisticates understand such fairness and how to go about destroying it,” Justice Souter announced in his diseent in Veith v. Jubilerer, the Pennsylvania redistricting case in which the Court declined by a vote of 5 to 4 to immerse itself in the details of the partisan redistricting of Pennsylvania.
If Democrats control the White House and gain even one of the five seats held by the center-right majority of current justices, this and many other crucial issues are up for legal grabs. When activist judges are more than willing to rewrite rules of long-standing, periods of exile should never be self-imposed “for the good of the party.” Exiles can go on a very long time indeed. Ask the Whigs.
They can go on indefinitely when enforced by courts.
Just one example of a liberal majority on the court would do to this country. Defeating Roe v. Wade important to you? Forget it. The 2nd Amendment? Forget it. It’s hard to fathom the damage they could do, and I don’t want to. So, with Mitt’s exit, my main goal will now be to defeat two of the worst Socialists in this country.
