    Republican Scott Brown, seeking to fill the seat held by Ted Kennedy, favors more troops in Afghanistan, opposes health insurance overhaul | Breaking News - MassLive.com -

    ...and...

    "On abortion rights, Brown is basically in favor but with nuance. 'Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, and I dont plan on overturning it, but Ive always felt that, you know, Im against partial-birth abortions and believe in parental consent, a strong parental notification law,' Brown said, adding that he would not apply an abortion rights litmus test in Supreme Court confirmations."

    Brown seems more of a Libertarian-leaning Republican.
    He was after votes.....Lets see what he says now that he has won.........

    So maybe drop the iceberg analogy. More like an ice cube.

    Let's just hope Republicans don't act the way Republicans have acted in the past 20 years... for if they do, this will all play out again. I really hope Republicans start to embrace conservative roots and kill this liberal populist nonsense that is the modern Democratic / Progressive politics.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    More work has yet to be done. Plus, we need a new political party.

    Apparently, most of these people in MA call themselves 'Independents'.

    If the Republicans want votes, they had better act independently!
