Fear mongering over Alito

Look at this headline from Yahoo news: Democrats fear Alito may vote to outlaw abortion – Yahoo! News. The headine is just screaming fear mongering.

While it is true that Alito is strongly prolife and that he has made statements saying Roe v Wade was wrongly decided. If he voted to over turn Roe v Wade, it would not make Abortion illegal.  What would in fact happen is that the issue would be thrown back to the states where it can be decided on a state by state basis. 

It is at the state level where much of the real domocracy happens.  This is where the people get involved in local politics and have more say as to what is going on.

If this were to occur, what would most likely happen is that Republican would lose some national prominance.  You see the Republican party is by and large the Prolife party and pole and pole shows that most Americans are actually prolife. So removing this issue from federal politics would have the result of making Republicans find other issues to claim.  While most Republicans would hate this lose of power and prominance, it is actually the right thing to do.

So Liberals should act to confirm Alito for their own self interest.  Or I guess they could decide not to confirm him and remain the party of yesteryear for another generation.  I guess either way we are in a win win situation.

Go Sam!

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

    “pole and pole shows that most Americans are actually prolife”
    Sorry, please excuse me:
    CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll. Jan. 6-8, 2006.
    “With respect to the abortion issue, would you consider yourself to be pro-choice or pro-life?”
    Pro-Choice 53%
    Pro-Life 42%

    For the CNN pole you must watch the questions. They generally ask about the 1st tri-mester when infact the abortion issue is about all nine months.
