Several of my good friends have drunk the Kool-Aid with Bernie Sanders and have declared they will never vote for Hillary Clinton. If anybody reads this that has also drunk the Kool-Aid with Bernie, please note that the important part of the 2016 election is who will name the potential three spots on the Supreme Court.
The average retirement age for the Supreme Court is 78.7 years. Three current members are of retirement age (78, 80 and 83).
The Supreme Court has an enormous effect on our daily lives in a number of areas. Some of the things that will be voted upon are: equal marriage rights, validity of the Affordable Care Act, reproductive rights, worker rights, money in politics and many more.
Clinton will be the Democratic nominee, and the truth is the obstructionist Republican Party will try to stop everything she will sponsor, but they can’t tell her who to name to the Supreme Court. So if you decide to avenge Sanders by not voting for Clinton and voting instead for Donald Trump, to quote John Lennon from “Revolution”: “If you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow.”
