There may well be a hundred reasons for progressives questioning whether President Barack Obama deserves a Second Term, ranging from all of the issues on which he has caved in (think: Bush-era tax cuts for the very wealthy); all of the issues which he has tried to sweep under the rug (think: BP oil spill and its aftermath); and all of the issues on which he has acted like a sleazeball (think: reversing his stance on taking SuperPac money.) Even so, there is one overriding issue which makes an irrefutable case for an Obama Second Term: think, Supreme Court Appointments!
Consider that there would really be no SuperPacs were it not for that recent horrendous Supreme Court decision that "corporations are people" and "money is freedom of speech." We are already being haunted by the consequences of that wongful decision; the last time I looked, the United States Constitution did not turn mega-corporations into natural people, it was the present Supreme Court which did that. America is already being deluged with unlimited SuperPac funds which give the rich and super-rich even more control over the rest of us.
