1. There is a BIG difference between an honest to goodness conservative
and the long list of right wing activist that bush and company continues to push onto the american people. this person is far, far right and not a true conservative. That term is suppose to mean a person who espouses individual liberties, Barry Goldwater comes to mind as a true conservative.
23. thats it you are right. everyone wants to just give up on womens rights
you pinned it. wow. found me out. that is it. i have spent years wasting my time fighting these assholes to exactly protect all our rights and in a flash, you are right. i WANT to GIVE UP womens rights, civil rights and enviromental protection
that makes sense doesnt it. we all in a flash became, bad people.
how about,.....this si fuckin what happens when you elect a fuckin repug president. they put these fuckin conservative assholes on the bench. why we all fuckin fought our ass off all this time to make sure bush wasnt elected
what is this shit,.....you want to give up womens rights.
But what that leaves us with is a moderate to moderate-left candidate. And I don't see how we'll get that, given the numbers.
What we have to lose is a good question. And what I wonder is what filibustering this nominee will get us - will it get us a more liberal nominee? Will it get us more traction on opposing Bush? Will it get us ANYTHING?
He's not Roy Moore, but I think there is cause to be concerned where civil liberties, reproductive rights and privacy issues are involved. I'll wait for the hearings. I'm, personally not saying filibuster the guy, yet- but I think we deserve honest answers on things like whether or not American citizens, for example, should have the right to use birth control without fear of arrest.
14. So what battles, exactly, are we Democrats going to fight?
I mean a few months ago people were advocating that the Democrats should filibuster Gonzales (who will only be around for a few years as Attorney General), and now this website is full of defeatist attitudes about a decision that could significantly effect this country for the next two or three decades. I don't get it. I think we lost this fight back in November, but I don't know what the Democrats in the Senate have left to lose at this point. I expect them to try to do something about this horrid nominee whose views are in line only with a fringe slice of American society.
