The constitution grants to all Americans the right of free speech. As an American with a 370 year heritage of defending American values I feel that I must take it upon myself to speak out against Americans who attack and corrupt American values. One such corrupting American is Dr. James C. Dobson. All of us who value personal freedoms granted to us by our founding fathers must be vigilant against attacks to our freedoms and if need be declare corrupters of American values as Un-American. And so I declare that:
Dr. James C. Dobson is Un-American
Dr. Dobson’s crime is the demand for the elimination of the filibuster, the free speech right of the minority voice. We can all be confident in believing that if Dr. Dobson’s political ambitions were in the minority camp (they are), he would definitely not call for the elimination of his right, the filibuster. He doesn’t hesitate to call for its elimination when it works against him however. For the moment he has found allies with the minority members of the majority party and has joined with them to corrupt the system to their advantage. The consequence of this attack on American values and traditions will be our continued loss of freedoms under the Bush administration.
On Monday moderates of both parties compromised and traded off, the filibuster will remain but a few nominees must be given a vote and the remainder can be filibustered. Compromise is an American tradition. Failure to compromise is tyrannical.
The ambitions of the tyrant are clearly to advance a conservative agenda- my comments are in parenthesis
“This Senate agreement represents a complete bailout and betrayal by a cabal of Republicans and a great victory for united Democrats. Only three of President Bush’s nominees will be given the courtesy of an up-or-down vote, and its business as usual for all the rest. The rules that blocked conservative nominees remain in effect, and nothing of significance has changed. Justice Clarence Thomas, Justice Antonin Scalia, and Chief Justice William Rehnquist would never have served on the U. S. Supreme Court if this agreement had been in place during their confirmations. The unconstitutional filibuster survives in the arsenal of Senate liberals.”
"We are grateful to Majority Leader Frist for courageously fighting to defend the vital principle of basic fairness. (eliminating the filibuster is not fair, to state the contrary is to act as a tyrant and a buffoon) That principle has now gone down to defeat. We share the disappointment, outrage and sense of abandonment felt by millions of conservative Americans who helped put Republicans in power last November. I am certain that these voters will remember both Democrats and Republicans who betrayed their trust.”
A law whose purpose is to protect fairness of our right of free speech is truly American. Anyone who intends to eliminate such a law is Un-American plain and simple.
