Question: What is the purpose of the Supreme Court?
Answer: The Supreme Court of the United States acts as the highest authority in the 3rd branch of our government---the judicial branch. Its job is to interpret the Constitution and in doing so, it decides cases in which there needs to be an important clarification in the law. There are nine justices on the Court and they hear cases that have been appealed through the justice system. Thus, when the Court rules in a case, that ruling is the last resort for the defendants. The Court is an important part of our government, intended to be free from political influence and therefore able to make crucial decisions about the law and how it is applied.

Bush did not make this country into a wreck, if you look back at the 8 years that he was president the only bad years were the ones where there was a democratic majority in congress. Obama doesn't know what he is doing and the new "stimulus" bill, that he has completely packed with a bunch of things that will worsen our central gov't and turn our country into a socialist corrupt pit, has not even been read by the whole democrat congress that signed off on it the first chance they got. HOW CAN WE AFFORD BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THIS "STIMULUS" PACKAGE WHEN WE ARE IN DEBT!!!!???????????

Obama is a great man I think that he should be tha president of this screwed up country thanks to G. W. Bush. He knows what a struggle is and he is trying to end the many struggles we have especially for the middle class. Its alot of racial people out there that dont want him to be president because he's black but its time for a change. It doesn't make sense for all the mean things that people are trying to do so he wont become president. Its alao sad to find out we still have racism in the year of 2008. Obama keep yur head up hopefully we help you WIN this race you are running. LOVE OBAMA

McCain is an idiot, he will lead this country in to an even bigger economic decline then it is already in. There is not one part of his campaign that isn't like the Bush administration. And the fact that he picked an idiot as his vice should make you hat him
