Court will be next president’s legacy
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.
