I was unable to confirm that Mr. McCarthy is responsible for this message, so feel free to disprove any part of what follows...
Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election….
Mitt Romney has won the Republican nomination and I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d ask you to keep four things in mind:
1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78
2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August
4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe as many as 4 new members of the Supreme Court over the 4 years of term in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.
If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, think again.
So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win, imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER!!!!!!
Please Vote! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

When we are mindful of every nuance of our natural world, we finally get the picture: that we are only given one dazzling moment of life here on Earth, and we must stand before that reality both humbled and elevated, subject to every law of our universe and grateful for our brief but intrinsic participation with it.
Elizabeth Gilbert (From her biography of naturalist Eustace Conway.)
