Deciding For Whom To Vote

I generally don't talk about politics on this blog. There's enough garbage out there and I really don't want to comment on the campaigns and the latest round of charges and counter-charges that change daily. I find it depressing that otherwise honorable people reach the point where the desire to win leads them to fling garbage at their opponents. I guess they figure that they have nothing to lose and maybe the garbage will stick.

Actually, I believe there is a simple way to make a decision on whom to vote for in the presidential election. It is a method that allows you to turn off the news and cast a ballot with a high level of confidence that you have made the right choice according to your own beliefs. It works for Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative.

To make your electoral decision, ask yourself the following question: If elected President, what type of people will McCain or Obama appoint to the U.S. Supreme Court? I feel this is the most important question to ask because the long-term impact of any President is found in the decisions of the people appointed to be Justices on the highest court in the land.

It's a simple question and, for me, it makes my decision a very easy one.

A good question.

Yeah. When it comes to lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court, the viewpoint of the appointee is crucial!

That is a very good question!!

If McCain's selection of Sarah Palin for Vice President is an indication of who he would appoint to the Supreme Court, it's very clear who I am voting for president.
