This stuff takes two to tango. The real
conservative REPUBLICAN members of the Congress are the ones that are fighting legislation like this,
it's public record and I've posted it on ATS before so I'm not going to look it up again, but about 60 Republicans voted against the Intelligence
Reform bill. Like ten Democrats did. The quicker some of you realize that this # IS NON-PARTISAN the flippin better.
For as "enlightened" as many of you believe yourselves to be for hating (and it is hatred) Bush and the religious right, you're ignoring 50 percent
of the fact for posterities sake (or just because you don't want to change the beliefs you've held your whole life). Republicans are handing the
country "over" as much as the #ing Democrats are (that doesn't make it okay, that just makes a lot of you wrong.)
PS - I'm a registered Libertarian. I "stick up" for Bush at times because much of the rhetoric spewed is dangerously ignorant in it's belief that
everything that's happening is "Neo-Con" related. I'm not at all a Warhawk, I attened more anti-war rallies in the winter and spring of 2003 than
any of you probably did. I'll bet a months pay on that. But damn, some of you need to get a friggin grip.
still don't think a there will be a draft. This won't make it through the house - thanks to the 60 Republicans earlier stated. Even if it
did the crap storm created will be 100 times worse than the Vietnam Era.
How a bill becomes a law:
F. The Bill Becomes A Law - once a bill is signed by the President or his veto is overridden by both houses it becomes a law and is assigned an
I think some of you need to go back to civics class. A bill can be passed without the President's approval. It seems we should get behind the
libertarian leaning Republicans in the House rather than look at all conservatives with disdain - they're our only #ing hope right now.
