    In light of the huge education debate the past few weeks, I can't help but wonder:

    Democrats are staunchly pro-abortion. "Freedom of choice" they say.

    But they despise the thought of school vouchers (Because it would take money away from unions).

    So I conclude....

    Democrats are only pro-choice when it comes to killing a child, not educating one.

    They're definitely not pro choice, when it comes to the legal behavior that bar and restaurant patrons may or may not engage in.

    1. where-as cons/repubs are ANTI-choice when it comes to abortion AND, after the child is born, they don't want to help it in any way..

    they don't even mind if it starves to death


    2. democrats believe that tax dollars should go to PUBLIC SECULAR schools open to ALL CHILDREN
    they do NOT believe that tax dollars should be used for conservatives to send their kids to right wing indoctrination centers where they learn to hate everyone who isn't one of them

    democrats do believe that you have a right to CHOOSE to send your kids to conservative/christian indoctrination centers...on your own dime....

    very few democrats think that tobacco should be illegal

    MOST democrats believe pot should be decriminalized

    where-as MOST republicans think that pot smokers should be taken out back and shot

    democrats are MORE PRO_CHOICE than republicans are


    yet...
    even though cons/republicans are LESS PRO-CHOICE than libs/dem...
    I note that you CHOOSE to bash dems/libs but NOT cons/repubs.....

    Didn't say that they wanted cigarettes to be illegal...They just don't want anybody to smoke them just about anywhere and everywhere.

    As for them wanting pot decriminalized, where is that plank in the DNC platform and/or any democrat who runs on that issue up front?

    Face it, bub, democrats are as big as anti-choice nanny statist do-gooders as republicans are.

    Oh, and I'm not a republican.

    Why do conservatives want the taxpayer to fund school vouchers if conservatives want lower taxes?

    If someone wants to send their child to a private school, they are free to do so. Why should the rest of us be obliged to pay for it though?

    You have it exactly backwards.

    Why should people who send their kids to private schools or even have no children at all be obliged to pay for gubmint schools?

    The simple answer: because they're hypocrites.

    BTW, I follow the Obama educational model: send your kids to private schools. Even he knows public schools are not as good as their private counterparts.
