"Big-Brother Conservatism:If there is any evidence that principled conservatism is dead, just look at the mess that is the Mary Schiavo case. Congress decided to get involved in the matter of removing Schavio's feeding tube. They crafted a bill that relates soley to one woman in Florida.

If this doesn't send chills down your back, it should. The Republican leadership in Congress has basically said that they can step in to whatever medical decisions made if they don't like it. That is not conservative, let alone American.

What this case should remind everyone (myself included) is that we must communicate and have in writing what our wishes are to be should we become incompactiated. If you don't have an advanced directive, please do so as soon as possible.
