I don't know. I only know that it wasn't to fulfill their needs. I
guess I should say physical needs, which, IMHO are the only ones that
should be considered when voting. If I had to guess I'd say he made
"red blooded americans" feel warm and fuzzy and seemed like a "good
christian". He also is a sort of bully, which "red blooded americans"
seem to like. Personally, I think the whole point of democracy is to
vote in your own best interest, so I always do. The court system is in
opposition to democracy and is meant to protect the individual from the
masses.(and is very important, I might add).
