This guy votes, too. He salts his writing with liberal intellectual brilliance, meaning only profanity can express accurately what is in his brain. so I limited the excerpt to an appropriate size.

Another problem with the Republican Party is that they cannot be for fiscal responsibility AND for trillion dollar wars that aren't necessary, or completely funded by us. The Republican Party in the 90s used to not give a shit about spending tax payer dollars to help poor people. Today's Republican Party would rather spend more money rebuilding Baghdad than rebuilding New Orleans. Where is the jingoism that I miss?............

SALEM, Oregon, March 7, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new study shows that doctors in Oregon, where physician assisted suicide (PAS) is legal, have prescribed lethal drugs to patients not actually suffering severe symptoms of their diseases. Patients have been prescribed the drugs upon experiencing only fear of future suffering and loss of dignity in the dying process, research reveals.

The study says, "Some Oregon clinicians have expressed surprise at the paucity of suffering at the time of the request among these patients".

Under Oregon's Death with Dignity Act, a terminally ill patient can request that his physician give him a prescription for a lethal dose of medication for the purpose of ending his life. Smith and other opponents of euthanasia and PAS have said that such laws, despite "safeguards" in regulations, are open to abuse and result in emotionally vulnerable patients being intimidated into making the request..........

Gee, that guy's a load short. LOUISIANA just elected Republican Bobby Jindall their governor! Both parties failed during KATRINA. Same with Terri Schiavo. When something really unjust happens, both parties worked on the recipe.
