Stem Cell and IVF Hippocracy.

The controversey over IVF and Stem Cell research exposes the hippocracy of the modern Republican party. They'll move heaven and earth, distort all facts, smear any innocent person, and spend any amount of money to make sure that any embryo, zygote, or fetus is born; they'll move heaven and earth, distort all facts, smear any innocent person, and spend any amount of money to make sure a brain dead person lingers while any wisp of a pulse is left in that person's body; but, once that person is alive, to hell with them. The Republican party's position is that people should starve to death if they can't support themselves without help from government.

Ironically, and with some deft skill as contortionists, the Republican party has also become the party of HUGE government--not even BIG government anymore but HUGE. No political party has ever been more intrusive into the lives of the American people. While progressive politics aims to help people when it can and protect people when others interfere with them, the Radical Republican party seeks to ACTUALLY TELL PEOPLE HOW THEY SHOULD LIVE THEIR LIVES. The Democratic Party has never done so. Perhaps this is why the progressive movement (or as I like to call it, the true Conservative movement) names itself after the form of government (Democracy) that is most responsive to the will and needs of the people, while the Radical party honors centralization and the consolidation of power by naming itself after a form of government that is least responsible to the people.

The founders created a federal government empowered to solve the problems of a loose confederation of small nations and to solve problems that no individual state could handle on its own. The founders also created a government that protected the sovereign, the people, from all forms of repressive government. The Radical Republican movement has always perverted the words of the Constitution to argue that the founders wished that the states would be the most powerful sovereign in each of their spheres. What they hope we'll all ignore is that the people are the most powerful; they hope we'll ignore the 9th Amendment which gives the people all the power that isn't rightfully delegated to any legislative body.

When will we have Stem Cell research into curing disease? When we realize that the Radical Republican party loathes us. We are only worth anything to them if we are numerous (that's why they are against birth control and abortion rights) and powerless (that's why they refuse to pay for our health care or education). How else do they get cheap labor to keep them wealthy and powerful?

IVF and the Federal Government

Does anyone know if the Federal Government's Health plan for any branch covers IVF?  If so, doesn't the Federal Government pay for destruction of embryos?
