To Whom It May Concern,
Vote. Plain and simple. Just vote. It’s not hard to do. You either stand in a little box and press and button/poke a hole, or you bubble in a ballot and stick it in the mail. I don’t care how you do it, just do it. Every vote, really does count, no matter what you think. This election is the most important election of our lifetime. The country is at a crossroads, realignment is occurring, and the economy is failing.
Who ever is the next President will have the chance to appoint at least 3 new Supreme Court Justices. Currently, the Court sits at a perfect split. 4 Liberals, 4 Conservatives, and Justice Kennedy sitting right in the middle. If Obama wins, the Courts will conceivably stay the same, appointing 3 new liberal justices. If McCain is elected, the Court will have a rightward sway. No matter what political party you belong to, or whatever your opinion may be of the candidates, this will change all of our lives forever.
One major issue is abortion- the current court has a 4-4 split, with Kennedy voting Liberal. If Obama is elected, Roe v. Wade is upheld. If McCain is elected, it is overturned. Now, I am not presenting this information to try and convince you to vote one way or another. I am simply trying to urge you to vote. The issues brought up in the Supreme Court affect our everyday life, and whoever is elected President on Nov 4 will have a hand in deciding our future, not just for 4-8 years, but for our lives.
I will take a moment right now just to plug my own beliefs. I encourage all of you in California to vote on the Propositions. They are incredibly important and cannot be overlooked! (And a personal opinion, a Yes on 8 vote is the same as outlawing Interracial Marriage and IS discrimination)
Yes on 2
Yes on 3
No on 4
Yes on 7
No on 8
And please, this Tuesday, November 4, please vote Barack Obama for President of the United States.
And even if you don’t agree with me on these subjects, agree with me on this…
MAKE SURE TO VOTE!!! NO MATTER WHAT!!!!
