Default Done with Democrat Appointed Judges!!

Those who wish to leave the republican coalition and start your own party (to elect county comminsioners, mayors, state senators etc and hope that they can overturn R v W HOW??) are putting their anger and frustration in the WRONG place.

The republicans are not perfect. But these are facts:

They get voted into office by people who are pro-choice and want their taxes lowered.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice and want a strong national defense.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice and want less regulation of their businesses.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice who want their gun ownership protected.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice who want tougher penalties on criminals.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice who want their religious expression to be protected.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice but don't want gay marriage on the books.
They are voted into office by people who are prochoice who want racial and gender quotas and set-asides discontinued.

ALSO:

They are voted into office by people who are PROLIFE and want little of the above
They are voted into office by people who are PROLIFE and want some of the above
They are voted into office by people who are PROLIFE and want all of the above.

So they are voted into office for MANY MANY REASONS. They have power for MANY MANY reasons. Not just Evangelical Christains.

Look, the PROLIFE cause must move forward in ANY WAY SHAPE AND FORM because we know it is imperative to the success and properity and salvation of humanity. The Culture of Death will Destroy us! Piggyback these other causes and save thousands of lives!!!

Leave the GOP, and we will suffer at the hands of THE pro-death party, the Democrats.

The republicans (and pro-life majority) are SOOOOO close to turning this country around. Yes proof is in the pudding. JUDGES have undone the moral underpinnings of this great nation and will destroy it within this next century if we ALLOW the Democrats to appoint and more judges like Greer et all.


I BLAME DEMOCRAT APPOINTED JUDGES FOR OUR LOVE-FOR-DEATH CULTURE. DO YOU???

If you do, than take all of your rage, all of your hurt, all of your frustration, and energy, and tell your REPUBLICAN senators that you want a nuclear option button pushed in the next 30 days. PERIOD, END OF STORY.

Then, call all of your DEMOCRAT senators and tell them that you are switching your vote in '06 (from democrat) to the GOP because of their behavior this past week "which amounted to supporting the death penalty of an innocent person", and that they can redeem themselves by stopping their obstructionism of judges who might have given Terri a fair shake.

While I can appreciate people's frustrations, it took over 30+ years of judicial activism to get ourselves into this mess. 30+ years of liberal judical precedent can't be undone overnight.

Your description of the republican coalition is great. The last Presidential election shows that the electorate in this country is close to being split 50-50. Take out any of those coalition subgroups and the Republican party is headed out of power. People who want to start their own prolife party either do not understand politics or aren't too good at figuring percentages.

The most important issue now is the Supreme Court appointments.

Judge Bork made that very point today - said NOW perhaps people will get it when we talk of the importance of judicial appointments.

The usual suspects complained loud and long that Bush wasn't pro-life enough, conveniently ignoring that while Bush had appointed pro-life (Catholic) judges, it was the Democratic senators that blocked them. The Supreme Court is crucial almost beyond words. Put 3 pro-life judges on the Supreme, and start filling the appellates with similar and you have a whole new ballgame.

No. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has 12 active judges. Eight were appointed by Republican Presidents. The court voted 10 to 2 not to hear the appeal.

While I certainly am no fan of liberal activist judges...the facts of this case center around one incompetent corrupt judge - and he is being described as a conservative republican.
