Isn't this what Bart Stupak became? A baby killer? I'm so disappointed that he caved. It's not that I'm against healthcare for everyone although my ideas and the government's ideas are vastly different. It's that I wanted it to contain very specific language against federal funding for abortion AND for conscience clauses for healthcare workers.

I'm very, very sad today about what has happened.

The Anchoress has a slew of links in this post pointing to our country headed in a direction that scares me. Our Republic is turning into a socialist state and our legislators are gleefully going along with it.
A friend of mine has this quote in her email signature:
American people will never knowingly adopt socialism,but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened. -Norman Thomas, Socialist Party Presidential Candidate 1940-48, co-founder of ACLU
Really, where is the main stream media? If former President Bush had made this gaffe, it would have been plastered all over the place with many demands. And, what kind of apology was that? Not a real one, that's for sure.
