    I must say, Keyes does come up with some logical conclusions. He does have a point. Although I reall am not sure how it matters for anything.

    Maybe Keyes can make up some ground with that debate. I dont think the race is going to be a very pretty one but maybe he wont lose as bad.

    I believe Keyes would make a good president. Frankly? I'd rather see babies aborted than given to a homosexual couple.

    If the race isn't as ugly as most people expect, it will be because people in IL don't want to see a monarchy, with the anointed Crown Prince Obama winning. I think you're wrong, BTW (see post from yesterday), they are grooming him for President, lib or not.

    Frankly I d pay more taxes for a government program that pays the women
    that think about abortion money so they hand it over to the government
    run a socialist cradle to HS program and have them on board in our society.

    It's a shame that still thousands of lifes are terminated for egoistic reasons
    before they have a chance to fight for themselves.

    Government programs would turn out abominations. Save the money, support population control, support abortion.

    I prefer not to judge the unborn as abominations.

    Government programs run out of control no doubt. But you have to
    pay the price for your convictions.

    Its like gun laws. No doubt if nobody had access to guns there would
    be a decline in violent death. But its the price of freedom you have
    to pay so you and I can owe one. There will always will be abuse of
    our freedoms. As a reaction to end freedom is not a choice I consider.

    I can’t understand why the GOP is against abortions, who do they think is going to end up raising and paying for the welfare of these little bastards?

    I hate to go off on a tangent, but this is a fallacious statement. Most of the guns used in violent crimes are obtained illegally, while the guns used to defend against violent crimes are perfectly legal. If guns are outlawed, there will be a sharp increase in violent crime, since the criminals know nobody can defend themselves. It already happened in Australia. Innocent, law-abiding families were mercilessly slaughtered because the government took their only means of self-defense.
