Oh god, the left side

The righteous Republican Party has step over the line. Even though I do not agree with the left side, I will have to join them in the fight over abortion rights and the right to die. The TN legistration will try to pass an anti abortion bill next year, and I will joined the left side to fight that bill.

Every year our rights are being slowly taken away to where our government will eventually be no different than the government of China.

Why you think we call the current Administrations the Neo-con?

RE: Oh god, the left side

Points to Ponder...

What are an individual's rights?
Where are they enumerated?
By what authority are they granted?

Are we so sure we have the possession of certain rights at argument, or are we asserting that which is not defined?

I have heard folk argue that driving a vehicle is a right, and to deny a person a driver's license is an infringement of a persons rights. Obviously, this is untrue, and driving is a priviledge. What other "rights" do we assert that are similar in nature?

It seems a catch 22... If we have certain inalienable rights, does the unborn not have the same rights? IF the answer is NO, then at what point in a timeline are certain rights granted an individual, and who makes that determination? If man (a man or woman) makes that call, why not at age 30, or age 5, or whatever? In otherwords, who agrees on when the call is made? And by what authority is it made? The courts? If the courts are charged with the responsibility to make the call, and granted the authority to make the call, are they also then authorized to change it as the courts demographic changes (what are the courts anyway)? Are any rights, therefore, inalienable?
Once we have "obtained" these rights, do we not have them until our death? Do we not, then, have a right in the timliness of our own death? If the answer is once again, NO, for whose protection is the answer given?

All these points are raised here, not as a quest for clarification or desire for information, but a source for thought.

Where is it again that we are going... And why are we in a handbasket?

RE: Oh god, the left side

I would love to see a return of the values that have historically defined the Republican party before it was hijacked by neocon zealots. Better yet, I'd like to see one group or the other form a viable third party, and the Libertarians a viable fourth party. As long as the Republicrats hold all the cards, our "democracy" seems rather illusive, doesn't it?

Speaking as a former fetus, taking the life of the unborn is not a right, it is a digression of morality. No one has the right to do what is wrong.

One time in our history, it was morally wrong for women to show their ankles.

Morals and rights are governed by what the controlling mob thinks is right. Your wrong maybe my right.
