Loyal Democrats?

| Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2006

The once-great Democratic Party of the 1930s, '40s and '50s has taken on an absolute scary malignancy.

The ultra-liberal arm of this party today is against everything the current administration proposes for the safety and well-being of our nation. They're against a nuclear energy policy, domestic drilling for oil, revamping the failed education system and the continuance of the Patriot Act.

They are also against the wiretapping of suspicious persons' international phone calls and e-mails, claiming infringement of civil liberties.

Are they crazy• What good are civil liberties if we are hit again like 9/11 or worse?

While this great nation welcomes free speech and the exchange of all ideas regardless of how ridiculous, I personally would like to see a congressional hearing to question the allegiance of some Democrat leaders in our great nation.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
