Are You Sure?

Americans, are you so angry at Senator Clinton’s possible loss of the Democratic nomination that you are willing to vote for Senator McCain? Are you so angry that you are willing to punish your daughters’ and granddaughters’ by being responsible for the loss of their freedom to choice? That freedom of choice could and most likely will be taken away if Senator McCain becomes our next president.

Senator McCain has stated that he will appoint strict constructionist judges to the Supreme Court. That means more like Alito and Roberts. Are you willing to punish your future family members in order to express your anger today? Do you want to shoulder any responsibility for that?

Being angry is one thing, but being vindictive and punishing future generations is another.

... you are willing to vote for Senator McCain?

That's why I have no great faith a Dem will be in the White House come January. If there's one thing I've determined over the past 4 years of blogging is that the collective stupid of the American people knows no bounds.

One of the saddest things about our society (o and there are so damned many) is that the benefits of so-called freedom are anything but.

Our uber-individualized needs create a big bunch of "I-Want" babies. And no bunch seems to be - regrettably so - the people who will vote McCain instead of Clinton.

I would love to write more about this on my blog, but let me tell you that I have at least two broken and one possibly damaged blog-relationships over this topic.

That in and of itself says something! I am grateful for meeting so many people in blogworld but... it is a blog!

Anyway I digress.

This need to be "right" at all costs, to have one's way and only one's way is a perversion of democracy to be sure. And how sad when those with the most strident and angry voices about it are angry Hillary supporters who feel wronged.

People should really simmer down and take the long view and what an essential long view you present us with.

My mantra, which I may have already used here is this....McCain- Supreme Court, McCain-running mate.

People need to seriously think of the implications. Hold your nose, but vote with some regard for something besides your anger, your present "needs" and your myopic worldview.

I think by the time November rolls around the prospect of McCain in the White House and a Supreme Court packed with Scalias will frighten these people to their senses.

While there is no limit to the shortsightedness of some people whose need for immediate gratification blinds them to the consequences of their decisions I feel pretty sure that the majority of Americans will see the horror of another GOP president and come to their senses come November. Then again I have been wrong before...like in 2000 and 2004.

PoP - MoveOn.org has a great ad campaign running on CNN and on Internet wherein they ask the average Joe and Jane citizen if they can tell apart the policies of our current numbnut President and that of McCain. Most could not.

So, yeah, my mantra this November when I get to the election booth is "anyone but McCain."

You are dead on the money on this one girl. And yes if it were the other way around I'd suck it up and vote for that woman.

I cannot believe that anyone who consciously endured the last 8 years would be willing to be so vindictive as to vote for the other guy just out of spite. I think that it is just their grief talking and once they get into the polling both they will do the right thing and vote for "anyone but McCain."

strict constructionist: "emphasizes judicial restraint and fidelity to the original meaning (or originally intended meaning) of constitutions and laws"

How can you be against this? Once again the whiny left amazes

Anonymous - The constitution was meant to be an adaptive and interpreted document; a framework by which future situations unanticipated by its authors can be assessed and judged. The founders also recognized that the document would be an imperfect one and left open (on purpose) the rights of citizens to interpret, change and amend the document as needed.

If you ask me, Scalia, Alito and Roberts are just plain lazy and rest on the false notion of absolute constitutional authority as if the document were a sacred text written by omnipotent beings.

How's that for left wing whining?

Wait, spartacus. Are you saying that our founding fathers weren't omnipotent masters of all that came before and after them? Blasphemer!

Anonymous: Strict Costructionist!?! The current SCOTUS is responsible for Bush v. Gore, which is a decision made up out of whole cloth, a fairy tale, and the Court's very OWN opinion says "Hey, don't rely on this decision for any future cases."

Absolutely a new feature, never ever before seen in American jurisprudence. That's not lefty whining; it's outrage and lament over the loss of the rule of law, and being forced to be ruled by inadequate and morally bankrupt men.

"Once again the whiny left amazes"

[assuming that is your real name]
what strength of character you demonstrate by taking on a name-- by creating a blog to allow the rest of us to see [and debate] your views.
what courage you possess!

meanwhile, I flunked mind-reading in school. so, I don't know what the founding fathers meant by every word -- still, I kind of doubt they planned for the Supreme Court to appoint our President for us.

I don't know that I'd call it "vindictive" so much as "STUPID."

note from a Boomer----
I'll be voting for the dem candidate. my preferred candidate bit the dust some time ago.
surprise! it never WAS just about us--
we brought about civil rights for others than 25% of us or so & women's rights for others than 50% of us;
we brought an end to the last illegal, immoral war;
many of us continue to give whatever we can to good causes -- even though many of us are not particularly well off [that certainly describes me]

the MSM labeled us selfish -- and we let them get away with it.

Everybody's already kicked anonymous's ass but I just would like to add that pulling a definition off of conservipedia and sticking it up as if it's factual reference is pretty funny.

right on.

i am so saddened and angry at those who say they will vote for mccain if clinton loses the nomination.

these from what i have been reading and listening are mostly women that are either older and want a woman as president before it's too late for THEM


they are yonger women that don't know what life was really like before the pill and roe v wade and just can not imagine that they would lose either.

they can. they might.

and IF they think a mccain court would even remotely be pro-woman they best think again.

then there are the bigots, who, while not eactly thrilled with a woman nominee that damn sure don't want a black guy. i had some guys tell me that they would have voted for condi rice if they had to but they "aint" voting for a black "man"

i guess they figure a black woman isn't as much as a threat?

to what? their whiteness? their maleness? not sure.

me? i will vote for obama and AGAINST mccain and bush 3!

I use to think many would get pissed and get McCain elected but not any more. thing are moving quickly now and looking better by the minute!
Just thought I'd tell you the latest is you need it! I just heard Feinstein say Hillary should now step down and be given the VP.
Hillary just told New York lawmakers she would accept a Veep.
Thirdly Jimmy Carter just said he would endorse Obama tonight.
I hope this is a historic night in Minnesota right where Republicans will have their convention!

I use to see a nightmare at the DNC because of Ickes making Limbaugh's dream come true but not any more.
I just see a lot of nightmares with Billary as Veep!

just remember the last time someone of your ilk said 'mission accomplished.' :D

at least it WOULD be funny if so many hadn't died as a direct result of that arrogance.

I wrote about this on my blog this morning. It scares me how much power Hillary wields at this moment. If she comes out and endorses Obama and campaigns for him we could have a landslide in Nov.

If she follows her self serving agenda we could be stuck with four more years of Bush.

I'm praying that she does the right thing. But I'm not holding my breath because I'll turn blue.

John McCain has begun, and will continue, to reveal himself and people will see the clear difference. I think the Dems have in clinched. I really do.

But then, I am an optimist.
