Democrats' win in U.S. elections (letter)
, December 9, 2006
I am not rejoicing over the Democrat wins in the United States' mid-term elections. I take a great interest in American politics and believe we should take stock of what's in store for America and maybe Australia, seeing we often follow their lead in the bad things, rather than the good things that come out of their country.
The new Speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi, is a radical Democrat from San Francisco, America's most liberal city. As Speaker, she has much more power than a Speaker in any Australian parliament.
If both the President and Vice-President were to die, she would automatically become president.
She may and can introduce legislation. Her beliefs and aims include the legalisation of partial-birth abortion which President Bush has banned, same-sex "marriage", and the non-notification of parents by a doctor, should one of their under-age children seek and obtain an abortion - I could go on.
Some short time ago, she marched, in San Francisco, at the head of the gay and lesbian parade, which was lead by a marshal, who is head of the man-boy organisation, which promotes the idea that men and boys should be allowed to have sexual relations if the "boy" is a consenting party.Frank Bellet,
