And the end result was that an innocent woman was MURDERED and any of these candidates would allow it to happen again.
Stop Rudy Ping
Terri was tap dancing and juggling 6 oranges when her scurrilous husband shot her in the back of the head. At least that’s what I pieced together from reading these threads.
I’m going to get blasted for saying this, but this should have been left at the state level. It’s unfortunate. I’m not wholly happy with how it turned out. But individual states have traditionally dealt with this issue.
I’m going to leave politics wholly out of it, as this case has a way of setting people off in all number of directions.
Romney’s position should come as a surprise to no one.
After all, he used his executive power to implement gay marriage in Massachusetts, even though there was no law or constitutional provision that allowed him, much less compelled him, to do so.
He’s a judicial supremacist, the most dangerous breed of elected official loose in the land today.
He is right that it was a political mistake, mostly in how it was executed. The GOP's chronic problem is am inability to articulate what it is doing, why it is doing it, and why it's good.
The Schiavo case was a classic example of what happens when they fail to do this: someone else (political opponents) fill in the blanks in a self serving way, and the GOP loses public confidence. Soon after, they lose political influence.
Let's see if you still think it's a family dispute when one of our wives decides she wants your money instead of you. Oh, never mind.
If we are going to start deciding whose daily existence is pathetic and needs his/her miserable life ended by court-ordered starvation, I have a long list of candidates.
Not just MURDERED It was worse than that. The poor Girl was starved to DEATH! ! ! !
We treat DOGS & CATS better than that.
Maybe not murdered, but certainly executed, because the state was the instrument of death.
Thing is, if Terri Shaivo was murdered, than it’s up to the state. The Federal government has no say over state criminal statutes.
It is possible to do the right thing in the wrong way, and that was the case in Congress involving itself in this case.
Also not helping is that in most of the nation, the laws aren’t clear in these kinds of cases.
I was ready to give Mitt the benefit of reconsideration with his proclamation regaridng cloning, etc reshaping his beliefs, but the more I read of this man's slick responses to pro-life issues, the more I consider his responses to be slick, not fundamental values. Slick is deceitful in the main.
If the government can force the artificial prolonging of life, based upon the religious beliefs of others, you have no true liberty.
Also, in this case the government killed no one. The closest family member decided to stop the artificial prolonging of life which had dragged on for several years.
The whole Terri Schiavo case was surreal. The courts literally thumbed their noses at congress and didn’t allow a reprieve or review of the case..just a hasty march to killing an innocent patient like she was a convicted felon. Terri’s family was ignored and devastated too.
“Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord”. Romans 12:19b
That’s right. This woman was allowed to be murdered by the cowards of our system; not by our Constitution. They also allowed that worthless sack of you know what husband and his attorneys to get away with murder.
Remember, Michael, what goes around comes around 10 fold and I have never seen it fail.
I had just volunteered on the Romney for President website the day before he made these remarks. He lost my vote in the primary and my active support if he makes it to the general election. Liberals and RINO's don't comprehend the depth of this issue or it's lasting implications for the disabled and our nation, or for their own political futures.
And there is SO MUCH ROMNEY pimpin’ going on the supposed “Conservative/Republican Media” that I can’t tell if it PAID, or truely grass-roots supported. If anything the debate showed me Romney is only willing to touch on “surface-isses” realted to cultural/traditional/social conservaitves, BOTTOM LINE: I don’t trust him (any farther than I can throw him, and I am not saying this as a ‘hit on him), but as a fact, untill proven otherwise: I DON’T TRUST Gov. ROMNEY, and WILL NOT SUPPRT/Vote for Him!
