Where the Real Power of the Country Lies.

The issues of the presidential election have changed! The economic policies and war a on terror policies just don’t seem as big an issue to me with the possibility of appointing one new high judge with the possibility of two more vacancies opening up within the next four years. The big issue now will be what kind of judges you want appointed to the high court, conservative or liberal. Judges that observes the constitution (conservative) or judges whose wish is to do the jobs of the legislative and executive branches of government by writing new law from the bench (liberal).

Let’s make sure the right appointments happen by electing the right man for the job. These appointments to the high court will have more long run influence than any bills that are passed by either of the other branches of government.

I'm glad this post was written because it is extremely true. The next president will have much to do and things to make decisions on for the next four years, but the judges that he appoints will be their for much longer. We need judges that observe the constitution; this will help America in the long-run. We do not need judges that will write new laws to help their party.

It is true that the appointment of judges is a very important issue and it sounds as if someone has been talking to Professor Barnes on this issue. J/K. Anyways, careful consideration needs to be in place in order for the American public to make informed decisions on this upcoming election day.

Voting is critical but, I agree with the author that the important thing is to vote for the right people. The president is not always to most important person; because if you vote someone in that is not going to support the president then nothing gets done.
