Politics! Eek!

Here's the deal for next Tuesday. I can understand if you are a Republican or Independent, or a member of the Constitution party. I understand if you think that Democrats will take away your Bibles and hold abortion parties in your living room. And if you think that the war in Iraq is still a good thing, that Bush told the truth leading up to it, that it's making us safer, fine. Really, all of that is fine.

But the Republicans in Congress and the White House have instigated and overseen the largest increase in the size and power of the federal government in history. They have appropriated far more rights for the government to interfere into your home, your child's school, your church and your telephone lines than any other administration or Congress. They have reserved for themselves the right to deny American citizens the ability to either leave or enter the country.

So vote for whoever you want, I don't care. But if you vote for any Republican other than Chuck Hagel for national office, you don't get to call yourself a conservative anymore. The choice, then, is between your ideals and beliefs on one side, and making sure that your team wins on the other.

In between lies just what kind of person you want to be.
