If the President is re-elected, we’ll get more justices like Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor who still believe that progressive reforms like Social Security and Medicare are constitutional. They still believe that child labor laws and the minimum wage are constitutional. They still believe in a woman’s right to choose.
If Mitt Romney is re-elected, we’ll get justices like Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia who both believe all those progressive reforms just mentioned are unconstitutional and should be overturned immediately. Worse, we’ll get justices recommended by Robert Bork.
