    Here Limbaugh says:

    So, in essence, Limbaugh claims Dobson is opposing someone who would act in a prolife manner despite his personal differences. Kinda makes sense.

    Thoughts?

    When we vote we vote for a person. You can't really divide the person into so many different aspects and then say we just vote for those aspects. You vote for the whole person. The fact that someone is pro-choice says something about the person. In my opinion it affects more than just the abortion issue, it shows how the person values life. And the way someone values life will have an impact on everything that he does. And since he is a Catholic, and obviously goes against his church on this issue, it speaks to his commitment (or lack of) to his faith. If he won't be faithful to his God, how can he be faithful to his country.

    Great line, regardless on my personal opinion of either individual. I'm gonna file that one away in my personal folder, for future reference, Magnetic Poles.

    Rudy behaves as a liberal in so many areas, yet says he'll nominate conservatives to the SCOTUS? If he won't stand for what he believes, how can he be trusted to nominate conservatives. The very issue, abortion, that he flipped on had to have been his wet finger in the air testing the political wind. He'll be very difficult to vote for by me. But it is possible.

    Glad you liked it, Ed. I must say, it is one of my finer turns of a phrase. :laugh:

    I wouldn't trust Rudy with my front lawn, much less the presidency. IMO, he has no convictions other than his lust for power.

    If Jim Dobson can successfully find a good candidate, I may have to abandon my principal of voting against hillary, and support him. There's currently no one acceptable. This whole issue is greatly vexing to me.

    If Ron Paul doesn't get the GOP nod, are you gonna vota at all ? Will you vote for Hillary just to try and help make your statements about the GOP losing come true ?

    None of my business, I know.

    If my candidate does not get the nod, I will proudly cast my vote for who I feel will best help this country.

    1) Ron Paul won't get the GOP nod. I might vote for Fred Thompson if he gets the GOP nod. Otherwise, the Libertarian Party candidate will get my vote.

    2) No. Besides I really don't think my vote will matter. I figure Clinton will win Arkansas without too much trouble.

    Really ? Arkansas ? I'm really doubring her ability to carry even N.Y.

    I'm hoping Fred Thompson. But if by some weird planet alignment causes Ron Paul to be the nominee, I would gladly vote for him.

    Yes. Arkansas is the most Democratic state in the South. Other than on social issues Arkansas is quite liberal. That is one of our problems economically as our state taxes tend to be higher than those in the surrounding states.

    Not too much, but he doesn't come off as Presidential, and can't carry enough votes to beat clinton.

    If the Republicans would start putting the facts out concerning the clintons character, It'd be a good start. Their history wouldn't allow them elected to anything if they were Republicans.
