McCain says this about Obama:
this is a politician who long since left behind any middle ground on the abortion issue
This is the clue, one among many in this carefully crafted nothing of a piece, that John McCain thinks there's "middle ground" on the unalienable rights of the unborn. In truth, there is no "middle ground" on issues of life and death. A PERSON is either allowed to be killed or they're not.
None of this is any surprise, of course, to the careful observer. John McCain has always played footsie with both sides in this.
But, John McCain's true service has always been to the side that continues to allow the deaths of thousands of American children EVERY SINGLE DAY.
The bottom line is that not a single child will be saved by voting for McCain rather than Obama. Not one.
And the true principle that lies at the heart of the issue will be obscured more by McCain than Obama.
Doesn't mean I support Obama. But people need to wake up and quit allowing themselves to be deceived by this crop of consummate liars. And that most certainly includes McCain.
What do you expect from people who don’t recognize a difference between dead and alive? They define the lives of people they have no use for as less than human in one way or another. It’s easier to abort or euthanize someone if they deny their humanity. The irony is that in so doing, they actually deny their own humanity, having traded it off to Satan.
In this election ... no matter who “wins”
we have ALL lost already.
None of them are of Presdiential quality.
“The bottom line is that not a single child will be saved by voting for McCain rather than Obama. Not one.”
Not true. Have you ever heard of the Supreme Court? Do you know how they get on the Court? The President nominates them.
It’s all in the Constitution.
“But people need to wake up and quit allowing themselves to be deceived “
I really don’t think the majority of FReepers are deceived. I believe many are voting AGAINST Obama, and personally, I will make my decision based on who McCain picks as running mate.
McCain is more pro-life than Obama is, but Hitlery is more pro-life than Obama is. Big deal.
One would wonder, then, why he would then make exceptions for rape and incest.
I have no desire to abandon common ground with anyone who thinks that, but it does represent my profound disappointment with McCain as a leader or as an intellectual. He is wholly incapable of consistency on this issue, because he does not understand it. If he does not understand it, he cannot defend it properly, and he unwittingly gives credence to the idea that abortion is just a matter of personal choice.
