Feingold's Principled Stance Deserves Support

Once again, the Democrats have shown why they do so poorly in elections.

The recent resolution for censure of President Bush put forth by Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin illustrates the point, as no other senator has joined him in this effort to expose the crime of illegal wiretapping by this president.

One has to wonder why other senators do not rush out to join a senator speaking out about an actual crime. Isn't it the duty of senators to uphold the law, no matter which party they belong to?

Perhaps this explains why fewer than half of eligible voters go to the polls. They already know the game is rigged.

But every now and again, a patriot like Feingold shows up to do his job, and wouldn't you know it, he's the only one crying in the wilderness of a Congress that will let this administration do anything in the whole wide world its wants to.

As former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said recently in a speech, and I paraphrase, we are at the beginning of dictatorship, and it would be better to fix it now rather than later.

Looks like only Feingold is willing to act.
