When thoughtful debate and disagreement on an issue takes place, its almost ALWAYS among conservatives themselves.
As conservatives debate the appropriateness of congressional action, Muth notes that it is is:
A difficult question. A complicated question. A serious question. And not surprisingly, Democrats have been pretty much left out of the debate. No one really cares what they think. This intellectual and constitutional battle over the Schiavo matter is taking place almost exclusively among those on the right, with bona-fide card-carrying limited-government types finding themselves on opposite sides of the issue.
Chuck quotes a number of conservatives who have weighed in on the issue. And I recommend his piece. (You may need to click on “Opinion Columns” and then on “Brain-Dead Politics on the Left.”)
UPDATE: On his blog Gay Orbit, reader Michael links to an interesting piece by Neil Boortz on Terri Schiavo. I join Michael in encouraging you to read the whole thing. I don’t exactly agree with Boortz’s argument, but he makes some valid points and in doing so, confirms Chuck Muth’s argument in the piece above–the serious debate on this issue is largely on the right.
