What Republican Priorities?

They have a TV in the chow hall and at breakfast it is usually tuned to the news. This morning they interviewed a number of new Congressmen, including a David Davis (R) from Tennessee. After everyone had introduced themselves, each was allowed to state what they thought were the key issues facing America today, and what they hoped to do about those issues.

Mr. Davis’ key issue? “Bringing America back in line with the values of our founding fathers.” Not the Iraq war, not nuclear proliferation in Korea or Iran, not terrorism or even that perennial favorite, the economy, but the values of our founding fathers. Here’s yet another Christian Republican who thinks his morals and values should be forced upon all the rest of us.

I wonder if he even realizes that the good Christian values upon which this country was founded included the right of one human being to own another, an exclusive franchise limited to select white male landowners, and the de facto subjugation of women? Get a clue, Davis: YOUR GOD IS NOT MY GOVERNMENT!

Quoted from D. Davis: "I believe that liberals are making their stand by using the judicial branch of government to overrule the will of the majority. There are too many runaway activist judges who seem more concerned about their own agenda than the Constitution. I will continue my efforts to preserve the Second Amendment and do everything in my power to see that we elect judges who support the Constitution."

Decoded: he will try and elect "activist" judges of his own to fight the right for women to have a choice, and judges who will stop at nothing to further a christian conservative cause. He is in the right time and place - Bush has already stocked the important courts with idealogues.

Overrule the will of the majority? Who IS this idiot? I believe the "majority" (myself included) made their will pretty darn clear two weeks ago.

Isn't Davis the guy who put a racist ad on TV to somehow discredit his black opponent (Harold Ford)? Is that what he ment by "Bringing back the values of our founding fathers"?
Ultimately, it's the good people of Tennessee who elected him. What does that say about them?
