    I have fears with the upcoming tea party people who believe only in a literal interpretation of the US Constitution, who disdain the Amendments beyond the first ten. Many are running for the US Senate and I disagree with them. I don't think slavery is a good idea or that counting Blacks as 3/5 of a person is right. I think people born in the US should be citizens even if they have ancestry from the non-English speaking world or are Black or Brown or Indian. I think direct election of Senators is a good idea, as well as allowing women the right to vote. And I don't think shooting a political opponent is a good idea if you lose an election. The above ideas are all held by one or more of the current tea party candidates for US Senate and have not been denied or disavowed by any Republican politician - not a single murmur of opposition. And contrary to the current Republican Party position, I do not think the US government should maintain business relationships with corporations who shield their male employees from rape charges when a female employee is gang raped by fellow employees - The entire US Republican Senate Caucus voted this way, 39 votes. And I still think there is a place for women to serve in the US military. I have two daughters, one of which serves proudly in the US Navy. I know this makes me hopelessly liberal. But that is the way I was raised.
