GOP vs. Conservatives

The national Republican Party leadership (?) is trying to quiet conservative criticism of Alberto Gonzales as a potential Supreme Court nominee. They apparently want "subjects like abortion, public support for religion and same-sex marriage" off the table.
According to the New York Times, " The White House and the Senate Republican leadership are pushing back against pressure from some of their conservative allies about the coming Supreme Court nomination, urging them to stop attacking."

The "attacking" here is being done by the Bush administration itself. Conservatives have been working for years to undo the usurpations of the Constitution and attacks on religious freedom perpetrated by people like Alberto Gonzales and Sandra Day O'Connor.

This is just one of many examples of how the Republican Party "works with" conservatives to woo their votes with rhetoric during election years and then tries to suppress them afterward.
Some other examples of Republican liberalism include the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform act, numerous deficit spending increases, socialistic funding of Planned Parenthood, and abandonment of border security.

Concerned citizens need to remind the President of his intent to appoint strict constructionists and build a culture of life. Meanwhile, we should learn from history and only support candidates and organizations that promote fidelity to the Constitution and our God-given rights.
