DON’T STAY HOME
Here’s Why the 2016 Presidential Election is So Crucial for Liberals and Everything We’ve Worked For
By Allen Clifton
Let me start off by listing a few numbers for everyone:
Those are the ages that Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy and Ruth Bader Ginsberg will be when the next president is sworn in, respectively.
The next president we elect (assuming he or she serves two terms) could very well be the individual who selects four Supreme Court Justices.
Yes, our next president could single-handedly shift the balance of power in the Supreme Court one way or the other for the next 20+ years.
The next president might very well select four Supreme Court Justices.
For those who might be struggling to understand just how important it is that a Democrat is in the White House for the next several years, let’s just run through a few issues that would drastically change the scope of this country had the rulings gone differently:
If Republicans as we know them today had stacked the Supreme Court over 40 years ago, abortion would likely be illegal today.
If Democrats had been able to choose enough justices, it’s very likely the Citizens United ruling would have gone against big money in politics.
If Republicans had a larger majority of chosen justices than they do now, it’s likely the Affordable Care Act is overturned.
If the GOP had selected even one more conservative justice over the last few years, it’s very likely that today same-sex marriage bans would still be legal.
How much damage could Republicans do to our voting rights with a Supreme Court loaded with at least 7 conservative justices?
The list just goes on and on.
