Someone Makes Sense of it All

Steve H. at Hog on Ice makes a good point in this post. The Terry Schiavo case has become the conservative (ie Republican) battle cry. Although I am against state-assisted death, this has shown the GOP for what it is: a mirror image of the Democratic Party. The Republicans in Congress, no less, want to take up the cause for her life. Like the steroid issue, Congress does not need to get involved in a state matter. We did not elected these buffoons to pontificate about whether or not someone should have the right to live. Although my heart goes out to the parents of Schiavo, this is not a federal case.

So much for limited government.

Another article. Personally, Congress should only be allowed (and paid) to work six weeks. That way it would stay on task.
