I'm afraid he is going to be a Souter in Rehnquist's clothing.
I don't agree, my friend. I think he is as conservative as Rehnquist was, he's just so much smarter than the Dimmocrats trying to trip him up, it wasn't even a challenge. I think Slick Willy Clinton watched some of the exchanges, and wished he had been half as slick as Roberts.
I hope so for all of our sakes, I really do and I really want him to be the conservative chief justice we need. Either way, I don't doubt his intelligence, he has made the democraps look like the idiots they are. Brainless Chucky Schumer doesn't stand a chance. Nor liver-dead Ted, or Jello-brain Biden.
I watched him get grilled by Biden... Seemed pretty cool to me.
Biden was talkiong anout how anyone who was apointed for life HAD to answer some questions on issues.... Roberts didn't much flinch
The thing that makes me most nervous about a Bush packed Court is that the current state of the Republican party seems to be leaning pretty Big Brotherish. Lot's of heavy surviellance and spy stuff on the citizens.
With the current state of affairs, I'd really like to see a split Prez/Congress for awhile before more Patriot act type stuff gets passed. I think the best government we can hope for is one with it's hands tied..
but, don't mind me, I'm a closet libertarian
I am just afraid that with more democraps in office more anti-gun legislation will be passed. Just what we need, another assault weapons ban.
Yeah. That's why I'd lik to see a perfectly balanced stalemate for the next 20 years. Hell, pay them the salary and they fon't even have to show up... Like we need another 2000 laws each yr
I would like for someone to run on the platform of "I will do nothing for my entire term in congress but stop any legislation."
I agree, but throughout our history, every time we are at war, we lose freedoms, and after the crisis is past, we get most of it back.
You mean like this?
ghost, I can't think of an instance of getting anything back. I'll not stand by and watch illegal activity on the part of the .gov in the name of war... Leaves too many doors open for more.
But, in trying to not break the CoC, I'll go to bed now. I think TLynn put something in there about anti gov or overthrowing the gov... Night
Don't recollect ever getting anything back, just setting a bunch a bad precident. It's kinda like beating your head against the wall because it feels so good when you stop. We'll put up with all the crap at airports, thinking what a great thing it is to get to carry our nail clippers, lighters, and pocket knives again, never mind the biometric passport chips implanted in our skin.
