Court will be next pres­i­dent’s legacy

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: SU­SAN TULL WIL­SON ELKTON

I am among the many vot­ers who are ex­tremely frus­trated with the two ma­jor-party pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates. There­fore, dur­ing the past sev­eral months I have very se­ri­ously con­sid­ered ex­press­ing my protest of these choices by cast­ing my bal­lot for one of the two mi­nor party can­di­dates.

How­ever, I re­cently de­cided to be re­al­is­tic, and thus will base my de­ci­sion on what is to have even a greater im­pact on our na­tion than who is the next pres­i­dent, i.e., who will be nom­i­nated to the Supreme Court by our next pres­i­dent.

Whereas our pres­i­dents are lim­ited to two four-year terms, Supreme Court jus­tices his­tor­i­cally serve for 20 to 30 years; thus, new jus­tices will af­fect not only our chil­dren, but also our grand­chil­dren and great­grand­chil­dren! So, I’m invit­ing all my rel­a­tives, friends, neigh­bors, co-work­ers, ac­quain­tances and all Ce­cil Whig read­ers to con­sider this when choos­ing who to vote for as pres­i­dent.

If you want a more con­ser­va­tive Supreme Court, vote for Trump. If you want a more lib­eral Supreme Court, vote for Clin­ton.
