GOP Abortion Politics and Ron PaulSubmitted by RP_or_RIP on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 17:50
I came across a great article today at CatholicVote.com:
The great thing is that CatholicVote is not a site where I'd expect to see something like this.
Here's a couple of quotes from the article:
"Both Democrats and Republicans garner enormous political capital based on the emotion stirred up by abortion...And election after election, nothing of substance changes. But why should it? An issue that grants each party so much power provides the greatest benefit to both by being kept in stasis."
"Candidates who favor the centralization of power in the federal government, foreign interventionism, and big government spending while offering no realistic solutions to abortion are not good options for the future of our nation. Every time we grit our teeth and vote for the candidate they nominate, they give us another one like him the next time, only just a little further to the left. Incrementalism has a funny way of sliding down that slope. We do it in good conscience, of course, thinking that by holding our noses and pulling the lever we’re taking one for the team because this time things are going to change for the better.
Have you ever watched Charlie Brown try to kick a football? It’s a lot like that."
It's great to see the truth starting to diffuse more widely around the country!!
