    That would be good--but will never happen.

    Remember, McCain didn't even get to have the VP he wanted because of the force of this issue.

    cdw Ahhhh...the good life.

    And who did McCain want? And you know his decision regarding who he picked as his running mate and the reasons for it...how?

    It's been reported that Lieberman was really his first choice, but the ticket didn't poll well.

    That's retarded. How can a Jew not poll well? We all know that those negative pollsters would be rounded up and courted to jail for execution.


    (as a side note, notice our ignorant Chinese member has never returned after this conspiracy was revealed? ;))

    Right! God forbid though. And to go as far as to actually threaten, because it is indeed a threat to some people, to remove a 'right' of women to chose what's done with their own body, and if one doesn't approve of abortion, take a look close because it could be contraceptives that are the next mortal sin. I just find it all so ironic, and if you ask me, he's truly rabid about this issue and wants to do it like yesterday. Why do I think this? Well his pick of Palin and her stated views gives me a hint of this.

    It's confusing too, what makes Palin more attractive than Olympia Snow for instance, as it's been mentioned even among Republicans wondering why this choice of Palin. Forgive the source, but there's like 9 others who would have been better qualified, and there's women's names in there as well as men.

    I hate to say it because I have only ever voted Republican in my whole life no matter who was running really. Honestly, I don't feel comfortable with people totally pandering to the religious extremists in this country. This one seems like a setup to do away with the rights of women as they are right now.

    As much of a sin I personally feel it is to have an abortion, it's none of my business what someone else does with their body, if it's legal to choose abortion. Ugh, I hate this. Really, I couldn't agree with you more there Steve.

    How can anyone feel good about this? This day and age when people are foaming at the mouth because of the Patriot Act and what we've had to do these days, that's considered intrusion unnecessarily, and we want to not give more rights or keep rights, but remove more???

    And people are calling the Dems socialist???

    Remove the right to abort and this country might get even more crowded, really fast. Remove contraceptives and it's gonna be insane, if that's the next goal for some crazy reason. Again, I can't find information on if Palin and McCain both would love to see them illegal or something. Probably a silly worry, but I'd love to be re-assured they're not working towards something like that.

    On an economic scale, taking away choice will strain our economy even further too. It's not too conservative financially to want to see more children brought into the system, because it's the moral thing to do not allowing choice. Who's gonna pay for them if the parents can't? We all are.

    No, it wasn't that it didn't poll well, it was that several state delegations promised a floor fight, with an alternate slate being proposed, right at the convention.

    McCain could not afford that kind of ugly show at the convention, so he folded, even though Lieberman was his first choice.

    This wasn't a matter of just guessing the electorate--this was direct pressure, by the powerful and influential conservatives who care about abortion more than almost anything else.
