    There have been several threads that this question has come up lately. What do you think?

    I will vote for a minor party candidate but the abortion issue does not ultimately drive my vote.

    Fred Thompson is Pro-Life and he will most likely get the nomination.

    It is hard to see how it makes much of a difference. Our pro life presidents have not done much to limit abortion. Looking at it long term the republicans are doing less to hurt our country although they are doing precious little good.

    Most likely the GOP nominee will be Giuliani. Thompson's support peaked around last June.

    I am still not convinced that Thompson will actually enter the race and, if he does, I wouldn't be surprised if he drops out before the Iowa caucuses. Everything about his political career leads one to doubt that he has the fire in the belly to do the grunt work necessary to win the GOP nomination. I am not alone among conservatives and libertarians to think this way.

    The Iraq debacle and the hundreds of billions of dollars being wasted in Iraq is doing much long term harm to these United States.

    I am unable to vote. Since I am Pro-choice, I am 100% against all abortion.

    GWB placed 3 pro life judges to the Supreme Court. One more and the ill conceived and wrongly ruled Roe vs. Wade could be overturned. So regardless of all his other perceived (in most folks eyes) wrong decisions, he did do that. And that's more than any other President has done for pro life.
