Election Concerns Expressed
As the fall elections approach, here is a fact to ponder: four Justices to the Supreme court are between 76 and 81 years of age. Justice Scalia just turned 78, Justice Breyer will turn 76 in August, Justice Ginsberg turned 81 a few weeks ago and Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year.
I think it is safe to assume that the winner of the fall presidential election is almost certainly going to appoint one and maybe more new members to the Supreme court, as well as hundreds of life-tenured federal judges, whose decisions will have a tremendous impact on us and our children’s lives.
As columnist Andrew McCarthy recently stated, “If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those appointments is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, then you’re smoking something very dangerous.”
