I saw this and I think it makes a good point.
In Case You Don't Like Mitt Romney...
Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election…
“Mitt won the nomination and I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who may have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:
1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78 2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year 3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August 4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
Whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.
If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something illegal.
Aybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win ... just imagine this possibility:
'SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ___________??????
Fill in whatever pro-choice, anti-military, Obamacare loving, bed wetting, tree hugging, liberal your like.

At this point who you vote for comes down to one question about yourself, not the candidate: Are you a Socialist who wants to hand over every facet of your life to the government in exchange for what the government might give you back as they see fit?
If you aren't, you've only got one choice. If you want any form of free enterprise where the government at least gets held in check for a while, then Mitt's your only hope until at least 2016.
Casey's point about the Supreme Court justices is probably the most important part of all of it.

I wish he could be appointing them but I really don't see it happening an i have been with you the whole way on the Paul support. I voted for him an everything but they won't let him win so I gotta choose the smaller dosage pill otherwise Obama will win again. We need CHANGE again lol except this time the change needs to be Obama out of office. I have a bad feeling he is going to win again though.
