Sarah Palin is pro-life, even in cases of incest or rape. She’s a National Rifle Association member. She wants creationism taught in schools alongside evolution and has supported abstinence-only sex education. If she gets to be president, our judicial system could move so far right that Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas will seem like true-blue liberals.
I was a strong Hillary Clinton supporter, but I moved to Barack Obama when Clinton conceded because his political philosophy is very close to Clinton’s. But for those who vow to not vote at all or vote for McCain-Palin because Hillary lost or vote for John McCain just because he put a woman on the ticket, think of our judicial system. These appointments are lifetime, and the damage will extend far beyond a one- or two-term McCain-Palin presidency.
For justice’s sake, vote Obama-Biden.
