Why I supported Obama: Because Having President Palin (or McCain) put another wingnut fundamenatlist on the Supreme Court would have been a disaster




It's nice to have a constitutional law professor making this pick. Instead of a f*cking idiot fundamentalist right wing lunatic.

It's nice to know the court's balance will stay the same after replacing Souter, instead of tilting to the right wing anti-constitution ignorant side.

The balance of the Supreme Court is more important than what's going on in the House, Senate or White House. Thomas, Scalia and Alito are dangerous, and should never have been confirmed. Obama will swap a centrist or liberal in place of Souter, and things will stay the same. The interesting days to come will be if one of the four horses of the right wing Apocalypse steps down or dies. Then it will be game-on. But I don't see any of them going anywhere fast. Maybe not for a generation.

So for this one, nice to have Obama making the pick. Palin making a choice would not only have been a disaster, it might have been civil war.

Yeah, one that hates the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 10th amendments. He's on record for wanting to ban guns. He voted for the Patriot Act extension. He voted for numerous encroachments on state rights and continues to encroach as president.

You sound like another conspiracy theorist.
Actually he doesn’t want to ban guns. He wants you to be able to protect yourself, he wants you to go hunting, and he wants you to keep your guns.
He wants you to keep your right to bear arms.

I think the guns you're talking about are the assault weapons such as M-16s, AK 47s, Tech9s, Uzies, etc etc. Those aren’t guns I use to protect myself or hunt with. I prefer my Smith & Wesson and my Remington’s.

Where did you come up with your theories? Listening to Hannity are you?

Someone who disagrees with you is not automatically wrong or stupid. That said, legislation from the bench is extremely dangerous and contrary to the powers delineated in the Constitution. Both the right-leaning and left-leaning justices are guilty of this. Politicization of the Court is to blame for this.
Will be interesting to see Obama's pick. Seriously doubt that it will be a centrist, I think we are looking at having a liberal activist judge replacing the one retiring.

Obama endorsed a complete ban on handguns in IL.

There's numerous quotes from him stating his positions.

"I’m consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry."

Chicago Tribune, 4/27/04

"I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities and that our leaders must say so in the face of the gun manufacturers lobby."

The Audacity of Hope, by Barack Obama, 2006

You can also see the bills that he voted for and against.

"I think the guns you're talking about are the assault weapons such as M-16s, AK 47s, Tech9s, Uzies, etc etc."

Yes, he wants to ban those as well.

"Those aren’t guns I use to protect myself or hunt with. I prefer my Smith & Wesson and my Remington’s."

How you choose to defend yourself is your business. You have no right to ban small arms under the 2nd amendment. Part of the reason for the 2nd amendment is also to stand up against tyranny and overthrow an oppressive government.

"Where did you come up with your theories? Listening to Hannity are you?"

I left the GOP in 2001 when it and Bush shredded the constitution with the Patriot Act. I don't listen to Hannity. I hate The Drunk, The Leprechaun, The Golfer, and The Wallbanger.

Obama's anti-gun past is all over The Innernets and The Google. Here's a good place to start.

Since Obama has never discussed his views on the Constitution, why should Keith or anyone else find that as a reason to support him? The lefties in his party see the U.S. Constitution the same way they see the Ten Commandments, as quaint suggestions they can take or leave however circumstances warrant. Obama will probably placate the wing nuts and nominate some weird-ass candidate who thinks the Supreme Court is just a smaller version of Congress, and a cool way to settle old social grievances.

Constitution? We don't need no steenking constitution!

... except for the fact that the Democrats are communists. And Obama's pick for the supreme court will be a czar for that communist party.

See ya'll at the gulag, Comrades!

The 2nd amendment was primarily included so that the people could keep government in check, it was never about fucking hunting or sports.

In fact, the people, arguably, should be able to keep and bear arms commensurate with that of the government- that would keep them in check.
