Chet Edwards Votes With the Republicans on Detainee Bill

27 September 2006 at 5:54:31 PM

Here's the roll call. And here's the text of the bill.  And here, at least today, is a list of video clips from the House floor debate from Democrats, Yes, DEMOCRATS, who opposed the bill... and why.

I feel boxed in, in Texas. I don't have anyone that represents ME. I have two Republican senators who don't care about any different position than what they have; Cornyn is perfectly fine with torture and I find him appalling. And the representative that *ought* to represent the Democratic position might as well be Republican.

I don't want to vote for him. I could never vote Republican, that's the party that DEFINITELY is of corporate interests, that almost always votes against their constituents, but I'm at a moral crisis right now where I don't believe I can vote for Chet either. If I don't vote for him, as a Democrat, then perhaps my lack of a vote would be the one that would vote in a Republican like clueless moron Van Taylor. But if I do vote for him, it's voting for someone who isn't going to vote populist Democratic interests anyway. It's more than a hold-my-nose situation now, I am seriously disturbed by this vote.
