When Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., was asked recently about his party's plans, two of the top issues he offered would destabilize harmony. One is card-check legislation, a Soviet-style measure for unions, and the other is the Fairness Doctrine, which is aimed at shutting down the voice of political conservative opposition.
"The very same people who don't want the Fairness Doctrine want the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to limit pornography on the air," Schumer said. "I am for that. But you can't say government hands off in one area to a commercial enterprise but you are allowed to intervene in another. That's not consistent."
So you see, conservative opinion is the moral equivalent of pornography. Doesn't sound like unity to me.
Republicans shouldn't be fooled. They should be ready to fight. They clearly weren't this election.
