TIME TO REEVALUATE?....Andrew Tobias today:

THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY

Tom Friedman in yesterdays New York Times: Last year, we cut the National Science Foundation budget, while indulging absurd creationist theories in our schools....

I just want to stress that those of you who are Republicans or libertarians are welcome in the Democratic Party.

  • We dont rack up massive deficits without good purpose (the last one we racked up was to fight and win World War II).

  • We find ways to topple and imprison genocidal dictators like Milosovich at relatively low cost we would have been more effective with Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

  • We would be encouraging embryonic stem cell research, not seeking a global United Nations ban (which, thankfully, we lost most recently, 79-80).

  • We dont believe Tom DeLay should make lifes intensely difficult choices for your daughter or your dying parent.

You wont like everything about us. But overall, isnt it time to reevaluate?
