Posted on 08/22/2012 3:58:20 PM PDT by Kfobbs
The country is now in the third quarter of a presidential election year that may very well determine the direction of the nation for the next quarter century in the battle to establish whether the right to life for the unborn will thrive or wither on the vine. It is clear that historic battle lines are now being drawn, and liberal advertising blitzes are being planned and will be unleashed against Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan next week. This will occur after the GOP National Convention delegates formerly adopt the pro-life plank along with the convention platform in Tampa, Florida.
This right to life platform stand is more than just a thrown-in addition to the party platform to be discarded after the convention nominates Mitt Romney as the Republican Party presidential nominee and Paul Ryan as the vice-presidential nominee. This is a clarion call to all supporters of life that the election is going to define leadership on life itself.
Liberals under President Obama will continue to fight to destroy life by defending a mothers right to kill, to eliminate their childs life. Sure, it may be couched in neatly convenient neutral terms like womans right to choose, but murder by way of abortion, is not a choice, it is a legalized death sentence for the unborn, and a continuing moral scandal supported by liberals who would rather support the soul of a tree, rather than the soul of a unborn creation of God.
The real question, is how committed are conservatives to fight for the future of an unborn child, when the Hollywood firebombing machine is revving up as the GOP convention attendees begin to assemble in Tampa? Is this simply a convention platform plank to bring in conservatives? Or is the pro-life stance a rallying point, that has...

Who says the GOP is pro life?
Liberals always ask Romney, Who will stand up for the
Romney should tell them...”When will you stand up
for the BABIES!”
Given the question posed in the title, it would be enough if it just turned Catholics, for a change.

Just today Scott Brown announced he was a pro choice republican and he wants the GOP to be more inclusive of neonatal murderers.
Both sides are already sufficiently energized. Both sides are just about even in numbers. Not a whole lot is going to change between now and election day. Those who try and forecast this election based on previous elections, or the usual paradigms (i.e. economy, social issues), are making a huge mistake as MANY factors are different (specifically increase in minority voting) as well as an electorate that has never before been this polarized.
This is why you can throw all polls and predictions out the nearest window because all the “experts” are using very old approaches to it all. It is no longer “the economy” stupid or an American preference for pro-life values. It is two separate Nations existing as one, and not too well at that, with about 3% of the voters who are going to make the call.
I don’t get the feeling the left and left-center are energized at all. Certainly not nearly to the extent the center, right-center and right are.
They’re no-showing Obama rallies. They’re lagging way behind in donations. I expect leftwing turnout to be way down ... and some of the left-center turnout to become the new Reagan Democrats.
The immovable radical left is a smaller group than they would have you believe. Don’t buy the hype.
“It is two separate Nations existing as one, and not too well at that, with about 3% of the voters who are going to make the call.”
Actually, IMO, it is four seperate blocks...Dems and Libs (who will vote as one) and GOPe’s and Conservatives...who will lose. The vote total needed to win will be less for Dems..they will also have the left wing of their party voting with them...not so good for R’s. 7here are so many righteous Conservatives who are going to sit this one out, they won’t have as many votes. Hope they enjoy the chants of FOUR MORE YEARS while watching the obama celebrations...
I agree with your question, cripplecreek.
Having read most of the posts on the situation in Missouri, it doesn’t appear that many here on FR are true conservatives, nor are they much concerned with the “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.
Why are people so afraid to stand up for one of the 10 commandments?
(Thou shalt not murder)
It is murder to kill an unborn child in the womb, no matter how it got there. It is our obligation, however, to support any woman who might become pregnant, whether because of a vicious assualt, or consensual rape, and make sure her right to decide the future of her baby is respected.
This entire mess here on FR has truly discouraged me. You all care more about winning an election than defending a principle.
And, I really do not need any lectures about the lesser of the evils. This can be debated when a human life is not at stake - such as who is better on the budget, etc. But, not the murder of a nascent life.
Say what? Willard just threw a socon under the bus in MO and re-established his pro-abort creds in the process. In what bizarre dreamland is willard pro life?
What the gop/e puts into their own platform is not worth the paper it is written upon. Bush loved him some Amnesty. Remember when he gave us the chin wave and said, See you at the signing. Well I certainly do and that was when I saw how vindictive and petty Bush could be... especially when he took a stance that was in opposition to Conservative Tenants. He could also be magnificent but that was the more rare Bush.
See the promise and then ask yourself, Did Bush do all that he could to keep the promise made below? Presidents are no more bound to those words than they are the promises that they make in the primary elections.

Amnesty encourages illegal immigration
A growing economy requires a growing number of workers, and President Bush has proposed a new temporary worker program that applies when no Americans can be found to fill the jobs. This new program would allow workers who currently hold jobs to come out of the shadows and to participate legally in America’s economy. It would allow men and women who enter the program to apply for citizenship in the same manner as those who apply from outside the United States. There must be strong workplace enforcement with tough penalties against employees and employers who violate immigration laws. We oppose amnesty because it would have the effect of encouraging illegal immigration and would give an unfair advantage to those who have broken our laws.

Use biometric data to better track foreign travelers
Ensuring the integrity of our borders is vital to ensuring the safety of our citizens. We must know the identity of all visitors who enter the US, and we must know when they leave. The US-VISIT system, which uses biometric data to better track the entry and exit of foreign travelers, has been implemented at more than 115 airports and is presently being implemented at land border crossings. Reconnaissance cameras, border patrol agents, and unmanned aerial flights have all been increased at our borders. We must strengthen our Border Patrol to stop illegal crossings, and we will equip the Border Patrol with the tools, technologies, structures, and sufficient force necessary to secure the border. We will seek stiff penalties for those who smuggle illegal aliens into the country and for those who sell fraudulent documents. We urge continued support for state, local, and federal law enforcement to work in a cohesive manner in securing our borders to prevent illegal entry.

All I know is that I spent the last few days watching the GOP trash a pro lifer over a stupid comment but now that one of those who condemned has openly admitted to being pro “choice”, I hear nothing but crickets from the GOP.
What am I supposed to think?
Will GOP National Convention Pro-Life Support Energize Conservative Voters
Your article was about Conservatives, not Republicans.
We Conservatives who reside within the GOP could not be anymore energized than if you tasered us
Massachusetts has something bad in the water there. If you are a Republican and you’re in office in MA, you have to manufacture more of it. (In exchange for gaining power and keeping it.)
Still, I want that Warren Hiowatha woman, lying communist, to never be heard from again.
love your tagline. It says it all.
I guess some don’t realize they have a soul to lose, and we must pray for them, and for our country.
If you haven’t read “The Harbinger” yet, I recommend it as food for serious thought. I downloaded it to one of my Apple thingies, and it scared me.
