outreach

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 22, 2005

"I think we need to talk about this issue differently," said [Democratic National Committee Chairman] Howard Dean. "The Republicans have painted us as a pro-abortion party. I don't know anybody in America who is pro-abortion."

Right. And I don't know anybody in America who is in favor of capital punishment. Judicial prerogative advocates don't rejoice in having to execute people. They don't believe all crimes merit the death penalty. They simply believe a judge should have the option, according to his or her conscience, of sentencing criminals to die. Call them pro-choice.

    We do have to have a big tent. I do think we need to welcome pro-life Democrats into this party," said Dean. Still, he added, "I think that we must be absolutely firm in being the party of individual freedom and personal freedom, which means that in the end the government doesn't get to decide, we do." So, in other words, we'll accept your vote, just as long as it's clear to you pro-lifers that we will always support abortion. What a nut.

    The Democratic Party's self destruction continues unabated. As George McGovern said years ago, "I opened up the doors of the Democratic Party and 20 million people walked out." When will they learn that they cannot manipulate the entire US electorate with word games. By their deeds and votes they have to prove to us that they want to repent of their sacramental principle of the "absolute abortion license".

    Bam! Direct hit! Ouch! That's good. You're a dangerous person Diogenes. It will not be good for you in the short term. Protect your identity.
