Despite my personal beliefs that Barack Obama would be a better president for the United States, I am voting Republican for John McCain.

This is mainly to do the fact that whoever is going to be president next will have a huge impact on filling vacancies in the US Supreme Court. Even though positions are life-tenured, five of the nine justices are over the age of 70. Chances are that at least one of them will die in the next four years, and with the extremely influential decisions that the Supreme Court makes in relation to abortion rights, race-based policies and terrorism, I want a more conservative justice to be appointed.

Having all three branches of the government leaning left is not equal and balanced.
