No Longer A Republic

The ruling Republican Party just put another nail in the coffin of state’s rights.

I'm not interested in expressing an opinion on the Schiavo family's personal tragedy: It's none of my business and, until now, I was happily respecting their privacy. Too bad Congressional Republicans don't have the same sense of decency. Since a federal court will probably rule the same as the state courts, this law is just cynical political grandstanding on their part.

BTW, has anyone else noticed that the Republican leadership is steadily moving state judicial issues into federal courts? They're taking judicial decisions away from elected state judges, and handing them over to political appointees at the federal level. No good can come of that.
