>ST. LOUIS, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Phyllis Schlafly, national
>chairman of the Republican National Coalition for Life,
>responded today to media reports that Pat Buchanan will be
>excluded from the Republican National Convention in San Diego.
>According to the Washington Post, Paul Manafort, who is planning
>the convention, said Wednesday that Pat Buchanan "will not be a
>presence" at the convention.
>"If the Republican Party and the Dole campaign think it is smart
>politics to offend Pat Buchanan and his millions of followers
>by excluding him from the Convention, they are sadly mistaken,"
>Mrs. Schlafly said.  "Despite the fact that the majority of
>Delegates to the Convention are pro-life, pro-family Americans,
>Convention planners and campaign organizers have gone out of
>their way to alienate themselves, and Senator Dole, from his
>natural base of support.
>"Senator Dole is reportedly down 25 percentage points in the
>polls. Some national correspondents have even begun to suggest
>that he withdraw from his pursuit of the Presidency.  It is hard
>to understand why the Dole campaign is not eager to reach out to
>the three million Americans who voted for Buchanan in the
>primaries, especially with the formation of third and fourth
>parties looming on the horizon.  Do they not need every vote?
>"Inviting an obscure, pro-abortion-choice Congresswoman, Susan
>Molinari, to deliver a major address at the Convention, while
>excluding Pat Buchanan, is a giant step backward to the
>pre-Reagan era when Republicans were a minority Party.  The
>Republican tent is shrinking as the supports that have held it
>up are being kicked away.
>"Republican officialdom should wake up, and practice what they
>preach about the politics of inclusion."

"When all government domestic and foreign,in little as in great things,shall
be drawn to Washington as the center of all power,it will render powerless
the checks of one government on another,and will become as venal as the
government from which we seperated."
Thomas Jefferson 1821
