Since 1968, when Nixon was elected, Republican presidents have appointed 1,040 judges; Democrats have named 625.

Who is to say that they did not change their minds and their politics after chosen by the Republicans? Also back then it was not as polorized as it is now a lot of politicians were more Moderate. . My mother was Democrat of of course JFK was damn near a saint in our house since he was Catholic. As I got older and saw what the liberal Democrats was doing to gun control and other issues I became a conservative Republican. So did my older brother. So folks do change political ideals ect. Who knows fe352v8 there may be hope for you yet. :) :) :)

....This just goes to show that liberal presidents have "litmus tests" while conservative ones are apparently abiding by the Constitution...not applying such criteria...
Points out the hypocrisy of lib politicians...again!

I think what it shows is that you can't trust any of them to always abide by the Constitution as it is written. What you can be damned sure of is that any liberal judge is not going to follow the Constitution and that they will use their position to write law.

I shudder to think where we would be if the Dems had appointed the majority of Supreme Court justices. In any case, after those folks occupy that position for a number of years, I doubt that they are in touch with the world that the rest of us have to deal with.

I think Bush should appoint a life member of the NRA to the court. That would send Chucky Schummer and the rest of the gun-grabbin, idiot liberals into histerics.

That would be cool but you know old GW has not shown himself to be that good of a friend on the gun issues either. He is no Klinton by anymeans but He is No Teddy Roosevelt either.

I think it actual proves Lincoln correct:

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

See, even a liberal like me, can agree with a Republican; some of the time.

As a practical matter, the Supremes are less a factor in our daily lives than the lower courts. The Supremes might hear about 80 of the 7500 or so cases, brought to them per term, while the appellate courts will deal with about 58,000 per year, and the Supremes, in the vast majority of these cases, actual affirm the lower courts decisions, or allow them to stand by refusing to hear them.

That would be a sweet thing but its real likely that if a life NRA member were appointed he'd be pressured to resign from whats seen as a contriversal organization. Wasn't Bush Sr an NRA member before becoming president?

Glow got it right ,but did you know you do not have to be a judge or an attorney to be Supreme Ct judge????and many times in our past that has been so.Gonzales will appease the Latino part of the society and Brown as a women will appease blacks and women.

To answer your question, "Where do liberals come from", I can tell you unequivocally that they spring spontaneously from piles of bovine doo-doo.

Them liberals must head straight for the big cities after they're hatched from the cow pies and maybe that's a good thing; better to have them contained there instead of hangin around out in the country.

Good thing some folks moved to the city and got a job, how else are we going to pay the taxes so the government can send the folks in the country, their the agricultural price supports, and CRP payments. :-D

A little off topic-I apologize, but I can't resist. Fe you've got it a little backwards when you refer to ag supports. They are acutally urban/suburban cheap food supports. The govt does this so that the folks in or near the cities can afford the things they are entitled to such as their beemers, Ipods, and 15 soccer leagues for their kids.

Question: Where do liberals come from?

Answer: Look at the voting map for the past two presidental elections.
Your largest population centers are cranking them out every day by the thousands. The liberals are on the band wagen giving out the gifts to all those could, woulda, shoulda's in hopes of getting elected. Kind of like when we debated in High School and College. Regardless of what we believe or feel we had to learn about supporting both sides. Then when we left school we were suppose to have learned that there are two sides
to every issue. The born and bred liberal has but one agenda and like the terrorist out there today they will do anything to achieve that agenda. They say one thing but their track record speaks of another.. They will take an issue, twist and turn it and try to make it sound different than it really is. They will lie, cheat and steal anything and blame it on the other person.

Each of us watching these pages knows that gun control has absolutely
nothing to do with crime control and in every case, disarming law abiding citizens makes them easy pray. So what is the agenda of those who would take my God given right to pursue life as I deem necessary?

Pretty easy answer actually: If you and I are at the mercy of those we do not trust to make choices for us that we do not want. Then when we disagree with what is going on we no longer have any teeth in our complaints.

Tyranny today is no different than it was in the beginning. It starts with the politician that gives yours and my tax dollar to the needy and then ask's for their vote. Then ask's them to spread the word. Just like any other pyramid scheme, they want it to network so the guy at the top
recieves the benefit's and you and I pay for the whole thing?

Not a liberal!

I see archconservative, Anne Coulter, came out today [on talk radio] very, very disapointed in the Bush/Rove candidate, John Roberts. She just couldn't fathom why Bush would even select a candidate that is just 'maybe' a conservative and that does not have a conservative track record. She was fuming and very disallusioned with the present administration...........

You mean like the, as of now 5 reasons we invaded Iraq

Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, no proof found
Iraq was wanted weapons of mass destruction
Iraq was involved with 9/11, no proof found
Democracy in Iraq will end terrorism
Better to fight them there than here

or like the President said he would fire anyone involved in leaking the names of CIA operatives.

Aside from allowing the assault weapons ban to sunset, what has any conservative done to strenthen gun rights in this country?

The difference between liberal and conservative as played in DC is hype. In the end the Government bigger and we have less personal freedom, regardless of which is in power.

Hi Jon

Like your reply, some of which is very true!
1. Irag should have been taken care of along with this problem many years prior to G.W. getting into office. Whether he or we did in Iraq
what was done from bad information or not is pretty much a lose lose situation for whomever happen to be in office. G>W> inherited anothers
creation. At least he had the intestinal fortitude to make a choice instead of put it up to world opinion?

2. I am without political affiliation and have been for three decades. So when I say that since the inception of the constitution and our bill of rights
I haven't found a reason to change gun rights or anything else. As that was done to perfection in the beginning. With the exception of certain liberals who fill the courts with bogus misapplication and misrepresentations the constitution has been just fine.

The fact is maybe its time we started an adopt a terrorist program. Kind of like the penal system I worked with for two decades. Each of us regardless of the State supports a variety of programs such as halfway type homes. Convicted offenders of various crimes either go to the various programs instead of getting true punishment or go to these programs after a stay in prison. SInce I am an expert in the field and have the facts supporting what I say-THESE programs in total are an overwelming failure.

History always repeats itself and always will repeat itself. The Roman empire lasted 800 years as I recall. Its fracture and destruction came
from liberals who weren't happy with an incredible lifestyle. They wanted to change it. Without getting into a friction lets just say when they went out they weren't given food, nice places to stay, imprisoned. They were
wiped up and out with few getting to become slaves. SO I say we can't do an adoption program but it will fail. It has always failed and will always fail regardless who is president.

I personally have started programs for wayward teens. Love, food, warm bill free living. After a year I found my must prized possession and the child gone never to return. That is what is nice about free will. I can choose to be an honerable member of society. Will a person who was trained to hate and trained to kill me because of my beliefs choose to change? Our own prison system proves that it doesn't work!
