Public says keep on bugging the bad guys

If Republicans were successful in reversing Roe v. Wade, I see it as likely that the legality of abortion would be decided in the political arenas of each state. Abortions would then be available somewhere in the US. Unless liberals abort themselves and their supporters out of future voters.

Even then, expect abortions to be available in NYC and Los Angeles. It could be part of a NYC campaign: "Come to New York. Get an abortion in the morning and be seated for a Broadway show later that night". Or an LA campaign: "Come to LA and get an abortion. You may meet a celebrity at the clinic."

But when Democrats decry the Patriot Act, the wiretaps and other anti-terror methods, we know they have no viable back-up plan to replace these statutes. That is the political problem of their position on terror.

Per Dick Morris in Wiretaps Are a Winner for W, polls show:

The Fox News poll of Jan. 11 asked voters whether the president "should have the power to authorize the National Security Agency to monitor electronic communications of suspected terrorists without getting warrants, even if one end of the communication is in the United States?" By 58 percent to 36 percent, the answer was "yes."

Indeed, 42 percent of the nation's Democrats agreed that the president should have this power. The poll also tells us that Americans attribute the absence of terrorist attacks over the past 41/2 years to our government's efforts to protect us. Asked if the fact that there has been no major terror attack since 9/11 was due to "security measures working" or to "no attack having been planned" by terrorists, Americans credited government efforts by 46 percent (to 22 percent for the terrorists, with another 20 percent saying both factors contributed).

Other results: Some 61 percent — including a majority of the Democrats — said they'd be willing to surrender some of their own privacy to help prevent terror attacks. Respondents support renewal of the Patriot Act by 57 percent to 31 percent. (Even Democrats only oppose renewal by 40-47.)

And those who called attention to the NSA policy of warrant-less wiretaps are called "traitors" by 50 percent of the voters and "whistleblowers" by only 27 percent. Democrats opted for "traitors" by 42 percent to 34 percent.

There is the theoretical and the practical. With reports (mostly on blogs and some conservative outlets) of arrests of potential terror actors in the US counterposed against instances of successful acts of terror in other countries, the American public can see the "proof in the taste of the pudding". With time for Republicans to regroup and self-clean, I do see the public mounting a massive "Throw out the bums" campaign in the coming elections.
