Why I'm not a Democrat
Congressional Democrats gave me more justification for my choice of party affiliation today. Democrats blocked a voice vote on the bi-partisan Schiavo legislation, a tactic that will only delay the President's signing of the bill. Once the Republicans get a quorum, which may occur as early as 8 hours from now, the bill will be passed overwhelmingly by the House. The Dems know that the legislation will pass, but instead take this opportunity to placate their base and demonstrate to America that they are the party of obstructionism and not on the side of life. Despite my socio-economic liberal leanings, this is a clear example of why I am not a Democrat.

It's shocking, isn't it? To think that the Democrats would take time to actually read a bill that could have unexpected consequences for thousands of people?
Seriously, when you take time to think about your actions, the culture of death has already won.
Lousy democrats and their fancy, elitist "reading."
