Does November matter? You bet your sweet bippy it does...
Why? Why does it matter?
Both parties are so close to each others ideological lines that at most times it is hard to tell the difference. So why does the Election really matter?
First the Supreme Court.
If President Obama gets re-elected he will be able to appoint a new Justice. That means the makeup of the Court is going to change. A fundamental transformation
if you will. The Progressive Community has traditionally used the Courts to get what they want even against the will of the people, if they must, to move their ideology forward.
One Court case will get re-heard if this happens. The 2nd Amendment.
In 2010 the Supreme Court heard a Challenge to private ownership of guns. This landmark case established once and for all or so we thought that Americans had the right to private ownership of guns. It was a 5 to 4 vote. That means 4 Justices believed that the Constitution DOES NOT GUARANTEE the right to own guns.
So what happens if the President is re-elected and places another Progressive Justice on the Court? That vote could be flipped and you can easily lose the right to gun ownership. Won't happen? Well apparently 4 of the current Justices think it should. President Obama's view of gun ownership is well documented. Like all things Progressive incrementalism is the key. Oh they won't start an outright ban, just more regulations. Maybe banning certain Ammo or taxing that Ammo to the point that the average American would have to take out a loan just to go target practice.
Once Obama has the Court on his side he has shown he will go around or over Congress to push his "Fundamental Transformation of America".
Even Salon get's it...Confirmed: Obama authorizes assassination of U.S. citizen
Are you comfortable with the President, any President, that believes he has the right to Assassinate Americans their Administration feels is a threat? Are you?
So just how comfortable are you now?
