The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

Abortion Is A 'god-Given Right', Liberal Leader Declares

(CNSNEWS.Com) – Rev. Carlton Veazey, president and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told a small crowd of pro-abortion protesters that women have a “god-given right” to abortion and that opposition from pro-life congressmen and religious leaders would never take it away.
Veazey, closing speaker at a “Stop Stupak” rally on Capitol Hill staged by major pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL-Pro Choice, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) told the crowd that not only did they have a constitutional right to abortion, but that they had a god-given one as well.
“Don’t let anybody tell you that religious people don’t support choice,” Veazey said at the gathering in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. “You not only have a constitutional right for abortion, but you have a god-given right."
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn)

So make your voices heard!” said DeLauro. “Those Members who are pro-choice and who voted for Stupak should feel your wrath. Those who could not find their way clear to vote for health care, for whatever reason, should feel your wrath too.”
“But sadly, the Conference of Catholic Bishops had other ideas,” said DeLauro. “They chose to hold comprehensive health care reform hostage to the abortion issue. In doing so, they not only used a dubious rationale that puts even their own federal funding at risk. They failed their fundamental obligation to help the poor and heal the sick.”
Veazy was even more direct, saying that protesters were there to “take on” the USCCB.
  “We are also here to call out the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, because no one religion, no theological perspective should get the kind of weight that they can (-to-) put pressure on the Congress,” he said.
“Hold the whole Congress up and say, ‘If we don’t get our way, we will work against health reform,’” said Veazy. “We in the religious community resent that. We believe that no religion should carry that kind of weight in legislation.”
But isn't that what these protesters are doing? Pushing 'Their Religious' weight in Legislation?
Why are 'These Religious People'  pushing for Abortion
Why Is Abortion So Important In 'Their Religion'?

Why are these people Always FUGLY...?

They Say/We Say said...

Fugly and threatening everyone.
Rush said it is a religion with them.
I learned it on my on, before Rush said it.
I want to call in sometimes, and I don't have to. Someone will say what I wanted to say-or very close, or Rush will say it.
But the listeners will not act upon it.
It gets frustrating.

It is a religion with them. It's also an obsession and a mental disease.

Seriously, one half second look at Olympia Snowe and I could have told anyone she's a Lib.
Same with that ugly moose that ran up in NY as a Liberal Agent.

Hey, I'm not trying to offend them by calling them ugly and fugly. It's an observation. Quite different. There is something to the fact that all of the liberal political women are freakin ugly.

I haven't put my finger directly on it, but it is an advantage for them getting votes from libs. Maybe something to do with that Seinfeld line 'Only 3% of the population is dateable, 4% tops"
