Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Non-partisan and Liberal

NLT readers also may be interested to know that after weeks of indecision on the issue, Gov. Arnie has endorsed Proposition 71. Prop. 71 is the Embryonic Stem Cell initiative that devotes $3 billion of tax-payer money to research on stem cells collected from human embryos. Though I am not surprised by his lack of circumspection on the moral front, it is strange coming from a man who was supposed to be the savior of California’s fiscal woes. $3 billion!?!?

LA Times said $6 billion.

Oh oh, looks like the Terminator has come out in favor of terrorism against the fetuses.

Whatever the cost is, this is what the party gets for choosing celebrity over ideology. BTW, he is apparently going to campaign for W in Ohio, but not in his own state. How sad.

The Arnold appears to be self-serving and I think Republicans should not be so anxious to embrace him. If he really believed in the Republican ideology he should stand tall - even after the RNC Convention. We have not changed. Has he?

Why should the citizens of California fund any kind of research - unless maybe its about earthquakes? It is rank superstition to think that embryonic stem cell research has the potential to produce miraculous cures on a significant scale and a practical cost and to think that all that holds us back from these miracles is a government funding.

Republicans will remember that Arnold had better things to do than to work for the reelection of the President.
