The Passion of Mel

From WorldNetDaily:

"I'm appalled and stunned that we've gotten to this," Gibson said. "I just sit here watching this whole scenario play out in front of me with my mouth hanging wide open, that our country has come to this. I think it's really a dark, black day. And I think that this final appeal – it's too little too late. It's an attempt [by] the powers that be to sort of really just cover their a-- later on so they can say we tried, but in fact, they're not trying real hard. ...

"What happened to just being a human being, you know? It's nothing more than state-sanctioned murder. All the big guys, they all have their hands tied up by some tinhorn judge down there. Come on, when they want to whip a judge, they got no problem doing that. Look what they did to [Ten Commandments proponent Roy Moore] in a heartbeat. So they can do it if they want. They just don't want to."

Others feel just as passionate. But ironically when my state representative returned my call to him yesterday -- 13 days after Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed. He said I was the first person to call him with concerns about our own state's legislation in regards to the case. I live in Oklahoma, a state that was so solidly Bush, he nor Kerry even bothered to campaign here.

A lot of good “passion” does if it goes no further than whining at your TV.

In a speech at a Steve Largent campaign meeting several years ago Dick Army said something to the effect of, “There are those that love freedom, and those that lust for power. Those that lust for power are constantly busy in the efforts to secure power at the expense of others. Those of us that love freedom have to be just as busy, protecting our freedom.” Whining at your TV isn't enough. Whining to a neighbor or a friend or on a message board or in a comment to a blog isn't enough. To protect our freedoms, to ensure that an injustice like this doesn't happen again, you have to act. Call you state representative and your state senator today.

Here are the three areas that need to be focused on:

 
Spousal/Parental guardianship rights of incapacitated adults.

We need laws that clearly define limits to who is able to make decisions regarding the care of those the courts deem need a guardian. A husband that's sleeping around or relatives that stand to inherits large sums of money obviously have a conflict of interest, and in spite of the argument that it should remain in the family -- there needs to be some clearly written laws protecting incapacitated people from relatives who care more for the money than the one they are supposed to be protecting.

 

Euthanasia

Play all the word games you like, but ending a person's life under the pretext of “ending their suffering” is euthanasia. The courts are more and more siding with the Cult of Death that is forcing their hideous values on the rest of the nation. States need clearly defined laws regarding what is and isn't allowed, as well as under what circumstances.

 

Judicial Restraint/Balance of Powers

This is the most important. We need laws that limit the judiciary. Judges are proclaiming themselves the ultimate rulers of the nations, and twisting the Constitution to whatever whim of decision they want to make that day. The concept of an “elastic” Constitution originally meant that the people could alter it by adding amendments, not that the judges could bend it to whatever modern mores they felt should be imposed at the time. The lie of a “Living Constitution” was spoon fed through the educational system for decades now, and we are seeing the results. The legislature, both Federal and state, can enact laws limiting the judiciary. If the judges object and try to impose their own version -- the people have the right to respond by either impeaching the judges or making the law part of the Constitution, or both.

We must act, we can't allow a handful of judges to take totalitarian control over the nation. Call you state representative and state senator as soon as you're able. Then call your US Congressman and US Senator. They are almost always lazy, and will do nothing unless they feel pressured by voters (and sometimes not even then)
