Some hope in American politics
(I also criticized the recent executive grab for power by Eric Holder.)
I said I thought that the State abrogating Constitutional Rights was an unfortunate trend.
What pleases me is that (with the exception of a second amendment fundamentalist who objected to my off-hand assertion that the provision was antique) I have had almost universal agreement with this observation from both the left and the right.
I have gun-toting law-and-order right wing readers. They agree.
I have liberal readers. They agree.
I have libertarian readers. They agree.
I haven't seen this much agreement in any US political matter for a long time.
That is hopeful.
PS. As far as I know I don't have many Christian-fundamentalists who want a Christian State type readers. As I was standing up for the constitutional rights of a woman who is alleged to have provided women for prostitution I suspect there is a fracture line there. I did not see that in comments or emails received.
