I know I have gotten into the debate about sitting out elections in a few other threads, but there is something very different about 2016 to consider.
Obama has appointed two Supreme Court justices, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
The next president could appoint as many as four.
If that happens, that may well be the end of our Republic. My fellow conservatives, we cannot allow this, no matter who the nominee is. I implore you.

ARTICLE: Hillary Clinton, if president, could appoint 4 Supreme Court justices
Conservatives unhappy with U.S. Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage and Obamacare heard a powerful argument Thursday for defeating Hillary Rodham Clinton: The next president could appoint as many as four justices.
When the next president takes the oath of office in January 2017, three current justices will be at least 80 years old: conservative Antonin Scalia (80), swing voter Anthony M. Kennedy (80) and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg (83). Liberal Justice Stephen G. Breyer will be 78.
During a Federalist Society discussion on the first 10 years of the court under Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., lawyer Michael Carvin said the Supreme Court has made “baby steps toward the return to the rule of law” in the past decade, despite dissatisfaction by many conservatives.
“If the election goes wrong next year, none of that will matter and we will all descend into a hellish existence from which we will never emerge,” Mr. Carvin said to laughter from the crowd . . . . . (SNIP)
