All Together Now
If the Democrats were the worst, least successful minority Party in history over the last 12 years, the Republicans have just shown that they’re determined to be the best.
The Democrats refused to filibuster a nominee to the Supreme Court that will cause our country to take a hard right (fascist) turn for the next several decades, and even more disgusting, they refused to filibuster a bill that wiped out our right of habeas corpus, but the Republicans have just successfully filibustered a NON BINDING RESOLUTION, simply because it would embarrass their President.
I'm hoping (probably against hope) that this last election changed who the Democrats are. One thing's for sure, it did nothing to alter the GOP. They will vote Party lines and circle the wagons to protect one of their own, same as it ever was. The Democrats must realize that there is no compromise when it comes to the war. Bush has made his stand, his men have fallen in line and the escalation goes forward, WITHOUT DEBATE. The question remains, what are they going to do about it? The people voted, now it's time to act.
