Totally agree with you fishy.

For all the pro-life supporters Rand gained today, he lost 10 times as many people who believe in the right to choose - even when that right is to choose NOT to have an abortion.

For the people who think this is a states right issue. Fine. It would have been interesting if things had been done that way. But may I remind you, 100 years ago, divorce was a very tawdry thing, a sin. You could only get a quick divorce in Nevada, or face a long, expensive, drawn-out ordeal in the other states. You know what happened? Like bowling pins falling, states passed no-fault divorce laws & you could get a divorce EVERYWHERE in a matter of a few decades.

The same thing would have happened if abortion had been a state, rather than federal issue. I'll bet you that EVERY state in the union would have had legalized abortion if it hadn't been done thru the Supremes & Roe v. Wade.

I am pro-choice, & part of that choice is the choice to not have an abortion. But, I feel that abortion should not be funded by federal or state government dollars.

Abortion WAS a state issue

Teenage girls from my state would go to the next state over if they had the money. If they did not, they went and got a coat hanger job, and LOTS of girls were mutilated.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

ron paul has developed his entire foreign policy over the right to live and says one of gvts most important mandates is to protect innocent life wherever it may be found.
If you are prochoice, and believe our gvt should allow choice in this mater- then you never really understood ron paul and fooled yourself.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

no

ron paul believes in states rights to choose on this issue. luckily for rand i am not a single issue voter like some here.

.

correct, but ronnie also knows this issue is not going to be removed from the stage any time soon and is a realist.
He says if gvt has one side to come down on it should be "to protect innocent life where ever it may be found"
so
YES!

and BTW:
Rand like his father will not pander to you nor will he ask for your vote or money.
If you like him, then he figures you should know what to do and DO IT.
so Rand is not lucky to have YOU. YOU are lucky to have HIM.

Lets get that straight.

And, another thing, Rand

would deny abortion to victims of rape or incest. I find that heartless & cruel. If he runs for POTUS, this stance will be paraded by the Democrats ad nauseum. He will never be elected with an opinion like that.

Gilligan's picture

ausscyn, are you saying that he should change his opinion ...

...so he can get elected?

Google is government.

He should keep his opinion

out of my vagina.
This is a PERSONAL issue between a woman and her creator. We have made laws for is and against it to no avail.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

hmm

Fishy!

Can you help me?

I'm not sure what you are asking. I certainly cannot explain how the evil machine gets away with all that it does, except to point to evil people running the machine. To expect anything but evil from them is detrimental.

Not much longer, my friend.

Each day is an eternity, and yet time flies... She will be 18 soon, and she will very likely come looking for you. With facebook and twitter, she may find you much sooner.
Tomorrow we will meet with my son in law for the first time in almost 2 years. I do not even know my youngest grandson, we are hoping to get past this. It is time for me to put my heart where my mouth is, I have to love my way through this. Wish me luck.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Thank you so much

I wish you luck.

It's not pandering if its what you believe

He has always been ProLife, you can disagree with the position but its not pandering.

.

BINGO!

"instead of focusing on the issues that COULD bring people from the left to support him."

Rand DOES NOT WANT LIB SUPPORT!
nor does he need it.

If you think Rand will pander to libs- in ANY fashion, you are DEAD WRONG!

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

no

rand has been going around saying the republicans need to be competitive on the west coast and other lib leaning states. that's why he is pushing tepid drug law reform and immigration reform etc. please pay attention and try to keep up.

I certainly do not want Rand to pander to liberals

but there are many liberals who are "waking up" and ready to embrace a broader truth.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

.

I understand you want a cumbaya moment for our country.
This will not happen. The sides view things too differently and will never view our constitution the same.
One side sees it as a living breathing document, and can be as changing as the times.
The otherside views it to be strictly enforced and say the founders wrote it with several steps needed to be taken to change it.

There will be no cumbaya.
Rand does not care if liberals are waking up like his father did.
Rand knows he doesnt need leftists, and liberals and he doesnt want them around him.
He doesnt agree with them. and he does not have nor will he take the time to give them a free education like his father did. He likes them, Im sure, he loves all Americans- like his father does, but when it comes to politics Rand wants libs to butt out of his campaigns and the Tea Parties.
This is what libs that followed his father dont get.
Rand is not his father and comes from the next generation and knows what liberals have evolved into and wants no part of them.
Im sorry this hurts the libs. I think they have good hearts.
But this isnt about a good hearted cumbaya.
This is about understanding the role of gvt and how our constitution should be srictly enforced. and nothing more.
Rand knows libs and leftists will never get behind KEY points in our constitution and will leave nothing to chance.
So that is why libs feel distaste from Rand and the reason LL plays like it is prorand. It seeks to manipulate the leftists you speak of into following rand. By in no way does it like or agree with rand and in fact is plotting to take him down at the last minute like it did his father.
Understand this.
It wont HAPPEN again.
Once one of us catch wind of the scheme, the flea infested cat will be out of the bag and the time is too long for the truth not to come out before the next election.

rand mentioned those things, immigration reform and drug laws ONCE on a swing through the west and never again.
so youre wrong again.
he is not on stage for either of those issues.
and hasnt spoken on them in MONTHS.

Rand truly does not seek your vote mmj. thats a fact.

your rand paul 2016 strategy is flawed

i see not much has changed since the last time i encountered you. you still have a rand paul 2016 strategy that involves going around the internet telling people rand does not need their vote... brilliant. you've said it to me, ll and several other so called "libs". something tells me you are not a part of the official rand paul 2016 campaign. with friends like you...

"rand mentioned those things, immigration reform and drug laws ONCE on a swing through the west and never again."
that's how politics work, it's called pandering. the issues haven't gone away and will come up again right after the gun debate is over.

rand needs everyone's vote including life long libertarians like myself and former neocons like you.

i WAS closer to liberalism then neoconconservatism. wrong.

I have said Rand does not need your vote to about 7 people here, including you.
Not only does he not need your vote, like his father- he wont ask for a vote or money or support.
Rand figures, like his father- if we want him and like what he has to offer, WE should know what to do.
So im telling you, I know what to do and Im telling people like you Rand is NOT courting you he doesnt need you or your support or money.
He is not a Libertarian.
Rand would tell you that you should be supporting Hilary or Gary- but not him.
He is a prolifer and this is why.
He, like his father bases his entire outlook on constitutional gvt on this premise.
and if you think rand needs you or libertarians you are seriously mistaken. He knows liberals and libertarians have kept the base away from his father and wont let that happen to him.
He only needs conservatives, constitutionalists, independents, tea partiers and republicans to rally for him, and WE are.

Rand Paul 2016

you're confused

"i WAS closer to liberalism then neoconconservatism. wrong."
yeah right, you're a single issue pro life voter who prefers rand over gary johnson. that sounds more neocon than liberal but there's not much difference anyway. so you're a so-called former liberal that goes around passionately targeting and hating on people who you derogatorily call "libs", you're either politically confused or you're lying or you need help.

"Rand would tell you that you should be supporting Hilary or Gary- but not him."
this is where you totally lose all credibility.

"He only needs conservatives, constitutionalists, independents, tea partiers"
most libertarians have called themselves conservatives, constitutionalists, independents and tea party at some point.
you have a poor grasp of political nomenclature.

well

Many liberals seemed to be ready to support Gary Johnson yet when it came to casting ballots they went with Obama.
I know many liberals on Twitter anti-war anti-Patriot Act anti-NDAA who still voted for Obama.
What kind of "waking up" is that?
