Social Conservatives are restless.  In Washington, hate (thought) crimes legislation and government funded embryonic stem-cell research have been debated and voted on, while saving the unborn and protecting traditional marriage is ignored.  Right here in Indiana, Governor Mitch Daniels and Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson (and others) insist on issuing letters in support of the gay pride parade each year, while refusing to champion Indiana’s Marriage Amendment (SJR 7).  To add insult to injury, Planned Parenthood (a.k.a. group that kills babies for money) made a point to thank their “sponsors” for an upcoming event, “Planned Parenthood of Indiana would like to thank our fellow sponsors, the Indiana State Department of Health and the Indiana Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.”  People within the Daniels Administration have since explained that the “sponsorship” was merely the use of government buildings.  Regardless, social conservatives are feeling used and abused.  It showed in the 2006 elections.  I wonder what 2008 will bring?

There are real rumblings out there of political discontent, though not as bad as 1994. But office holders better take note. The cynicism could quickly turn to "throw the bums out."

Throw the bums out!

You forgot to mention Todd Rokita and his participation in the Gay Pride Fest.

What is worse, is that often times the spineless "conservatives" are the best we have offer.

We need some old school conservatives in action.
