No, ytownsteelman, we do not elect legislators to create law by public opinion polls. We elect legislators to create law and take action that THEY think will best serve everyone. At the end of their term, we get to vote to keep or replace them.
Taking your line of thought, however, Timmy was elected when the voters thought he was "pro-life". That is apparently what the people wanted when they elected him. Per your argument he should not have the right to change the way he votes now, even if he has personally put his finger in the political wind and changed his mind about how he feels.

I completely agree with you.
My point is that, if the majority people cannot reverse course and start acting responsibly because it is the right thing to do, if it is truly now unreasonable to expect people to act as rational responsible adults; then our society and country is doomed and it does not matter what we do...............and all the government tax & spend programs in the world cannot change this.

@NoBS. - The kids are supposed to have minds of their own, think for themselves, and make rational responsible decisions regarding their behavior. And the kids are supposed to have parents that teach them to do this.

Once again here’s the definitive better plan; it applies to both boys and girls, and it doesn’t require any government program at all:
If you can't take care of a baby, don't make a baby.
If you can't take care of yourself, don't make a baby.
If you are not smart enough to not smoke, not do drugs, and not drink alcohol, don't make a baby.
If you are incapable of providing pre-natal care, don't make a baby.
If you are not a responsible rational mature adult, ready to be a parent, don't make a baby.

@tnmartinTo be honest, I would also criticize the Border Patrol's policies on use of deadly force.............they don't use it nearly often enough.

From above, Walter Hudson says "The video speaks for itself......"
Yes it does Walter, I would have shot him too, probably quicker.

How easy it is to be generous with other people's money.

Payroll and benefits means wages + benefits + workerman's comp + social security, +, +, +,......An employee can easily cost a company $125,000 per year.

It is worth noting that Ellen DeGeneres, PETA's woman of the year in 2009 and one of the darlings of the "progressive" left, posted a highly similar picture of a child standing on a dog earlier this year; and there were no personal attacks on her.
Once again, the blatant arrogant hypocrisy and ignorant hatred of the "progressive" left knows no bounds.
