Bill Frist - Republican Arrogance

| | Comments (0)

-- U.S. Sen. Bill Frist (D-Tenn.), discussing the recent Supreme Court decision declaring Texas' sodomy law illegal and his support for a
constitutional amendment to restrict marriages to those between a man and a woman. [Chron]

David Remer of PoliWatch.Org Editorial Note:

Appears the Republican leadership is looking for an end run around the Supreme Court. This party has no respect for the checks and balances of our Constitution. That is clear. Bush has expanded the executive power tremendously even to the point of taking congressional powers unto the office, like that of going to war. (Constitution states only Congress shall have the power to declare War). And now, the Republicans, will take it upon themselves to interpret the intent of the Constitution's right to privacy provisions and spend horrendous sums of money to undo the Supreme Court's decision.

It amazes me, the arrogance of the Republican party since their 2000 victory at the polls, to act as if they had some kind of overwhelming mandate from the people to change the face of our society, culture, government and foreign policy to reflect their own images. Such arrogance fortunately is never successful in the long run. The historical pendulum from Left to Right and Back to Left again is unstoppable. Regretfully, such arrogance is going to cost tax payers mightily in both the Republican's attempts to change the American face, and then again to undo all those changes when the pendulum reverses.
