    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.

    Just a reminder... the next president could affect the nation's future far more than just eight or so years..

    Most here, like myself, knew this, but we need to not ever forget or ignore the dire consequences possible.

    May you live in interesting times.

    Many here are more concerned about "teaching the Republican party a lesson" by staying home or voting third party. The massive landslide of lost gun rights, that the supreme court could start instantly, with a single decision, means nothing to the intellectual-wannabes of the far right.

    The SCOTUS is probably my top election issue this time around.

    Face it, the guys with siglines that say if Ron Paul is not nominated, the Republicans will lose every election in the future, are not going to change their mind. They are hard core cultists, and would actually be happy to see Barry pick 4 more Justices, just due to their own infantile need to lash out at the rest of the world for not worshiping at the altar of Paul as much as they do.

    As someone pointed out earlier, you can't use reason to change someone's mind on a position that they did not use reason have in the first place. They will continue to seek a course of action that satisfies their emotional needs.

    Oh well, what will be will be.

    Nah, I think you are missing it on this one. They will gleefully hope that others suffer, all the while whining about it more than likely.

    It's simple short sighted schadenfreude.

    It is more important for some here to sit out or vote for Obama because their man didn't win the primary. Very selfish and very childish on their part.

    It is interesting to see them come full circle, to be so absolutely conservative that the only correct thing to do is to vote for the most liberal candidate. Kinda reminds me of something.

    We are surrounded by fools. Anyone that believes by "not voting" or by voting for the worst candidate that they will get their point across is a fool. We are in the age of apathy and dependency. Hopefully there are more people with half a brain than not. But then I'm not so sure, look who's running things.

    Everyone has already said 99% of what I could, but there is still a nagging question

    Can we really believe that they are all that childish? Some of these people certainly must be able to dress and feed themselves. I cannot abandon the notion, no matter how hard they yell "Don't throw me in the briar patch Mr. Bear" that Obama was their candidate al along.

    I too think that Obama was their chosen candidate right from the start.

    Anyway, they seem to have grown silent in the past couple of weeks.

    The only thing we disagree on is that it will lead to an actual death, and rebirth. I think it will just get worse, no death, no rebirth. I've seen places on the planet a LOT worse than where we are now. I also think that our system crashing, will not lead to more freedom. It will likely lead to less freedom.

    Oh well, we live in interesting times, that much is for sure.

    There's no doubt about that.

    Even the dumbest and most dishonest of them knew all along that it would be an actual Republican against Obama, and that there was never the slightest possibility that Ron Paul would be the nominee. Obama was always their choice.
