As a resident of New Jersey, it's fairly safe for me to say that as a conservative, my values and beliefs are somewhat under-represented in Washington, DC on the Senate side of Congress. The people (in the densely populated inner cities of New Jersey) spoke and so it goes in this great Republic in which we live.
Senator Frank Lautenberg, a career politician, is now 87 years old and after a recent appearance at a Planned Parenthood rally in Englewood, I am seriously questioning my senator's state of mind. In the video below, Senator Lautenberg, when talking about members of the TEA Party and Republicans, states "They don't deserve the freedoms in the constitution". What? A desire, in this instance, to preserve the sanctity of life is undeserving of my constitutional freedoms?
While there are social and fiscal issues that I'm sure Senator Lautenberg and I would never see eye to eye on, I was at the very least, under the assumption that as Americans we would agree that constitutional freedoms are for all citizens of this great country. I guess I was wrong. ~Jackie~
