    PLEASE watch the ad, and help get this ad on TV. Even if you are not a supporter of Peroutka or the Constitution Party, but you want to see child-killing ended & want the true face of abortion to be thrust into the public view.

    I use a dial-up connection, so it's not practical for me to download.

    My gut feeling, though, is that many wouldn't want a few million dead babies interfere with a Republican victory in November.

    Frankly, I am absolutely stunned by this commercial. It is the most powerful political commercial I have ever seen. If this was played nationwide sufficiently maybe we would have a real discussion about abortion during this campaign instead of rehashing events from 30-35 years ago that mean nothing in this election.

    I agree. [​IMG]

    I wonder what DD and associates will find to criticize about this.

    They'd just make something up out of nothing.

    I thought it was a good ad. I would have no problem with President Peroutka (except for him having bin Laden over for dinner). I agree with all of his platform except the war on terror.

    I forgot to add that it was funny that he said not to waste your vote. Snicker snicker, that is what PJ, Netty, and Ken will all be doing.

    I sincerely doubt that, DD, since Mr. Peroutka's platform states that our government in these United States has a Biblical basis and apparently you don't think it does.

    I believe the only wasted vote is one that is cast in compromise for something or someone you don't believe in.

    If you support outright socialism then vote for Kerry, if you support socialism disguised as neocon "compassionate conservatism" then vote for Bush, if you support a constitutional limited government then vote for Peroutka.

    In 1996 I didn't waste my vote when I left the presidential part of my ballot blank, in 2000 I didn't waste my vote when I voted for Howard Phillips and I won't be wasting my vote in November when I vote for Michael Peroutka.

    Imagine...voting for someone who implements an agenda that you oppose, and then saying that someone else is wasting their vote!

    Anyone else tired of seeing conservative Christians tearing each other to shreds around here?

    I watched the ad. It was a good ad, all except that part where he says abortion is unconstitutional. By virtue of the constitutional government, abortion is currently constitutional. That doesn't mean it is right. As he says, It is wrong.

    Just because something is currently practiced by our government doesn't mean it's constitutional, anymore than something is Biblical just because it's practiced by a church. It's possible for an institution to violate the document upon which it is founded. Abortion is no more constitutional than the dept. of ed. or faith-based initiatives or McCain-Feingold, or.....

    Actually, Greg, while I vehemently disagree with abortion, the constitutional process of this country has declared it constitutional. We can change the process, but it is, at present, constitutional.

    You are right in that it is not constitutional because it is practiced. It is, however, constitutional because the constitutional government has, under the powers of the constitution delegated to it, declared it to be constitutional. If my memory serves me correctly, the only possible way around this is to fight Marbury vs. Madison all over again.

    So the Government can ignore the 5th Amendment and still be constitutional?

    Would that apply to the other amendments as well? If the government decided that it was constitutional to take away the freedom of speech, or to arrest anyone and search their home with out any probably cause or warrant then that would be constitutional simply because the government says so?

    Netpub, who has the authoritative interpretation of the constitution in your mind?
