Change can come in many forms. Sometimes it happens overnight, like when your government decides to "stimulate" the economy in the first 100 days of a far-Left president's time in office by signing our children up for $9 trillion in debt. Other times it happens over months and years and decades in the judicial branch of the federal government. Those of you who consider themselves moderates or Center-Right voters and cast your ballot for Barack Obama helped elect a man who will have the chance to solidify the Supreme Court's liberal, activist leanings for 20 more years.
It started yesterday with the announcement from Justice David Souter that he will be retiring this year. Now Souter was no true conservative or strict constructionist (means you actually believe you're supposed to interpret the Constitution, not re-make it in your image), but we know for certain that President Obama will replace him with the most liberal judge he can get his hands on. And with Justices Ginsburg and Stevens nearing retirement (or ) themselves, the 5-4 Leftist tilt will remain in tact for years to come.
THIS is why elections are about more than just good looks, rhetorical talent, and Sarah Palin.
