Posted on 05/18/2010 5:57:46 PM PDT by tcg
The Major news sources have all called the Republican Primary in Kentucky and Rand Paul, the son of Ron Paul, has soundly defeated Trey Grayson for the Republic Party nomination for a seat in the US Senate.
By the time the votes are all counted it could be a near landslide for the first time Senatorial candidate. Dr. Paul is a family man who has been married to his wife Kelley for 19 years. They have three sons. He is a doctor, and not a politician. That is part of the appeal he had for the voters of Kentucky.
There will be pundits parsing the meaning of this election all evening. They will discuss the meaning of this strong showing. Rand Paul certainly was not the preferred candidate of the Republican Party establishment. He had the backing of the broad coalition being called the "Tea Party" movement.
He has never run for public office. He all but eschewed the traditional fundraising model, opting instead to utilize the internet in the manner that his father used the internet in his outsider bid for the Presidency.
While the pundit class pontificates, those who recognize that the foundation of all human rights is the fundamental Right to life should take heart from Rand Paul's position in defense of the dignity of every human life from conception to natural death.
Here are his own words:
"I am 100% pro life. I believe abortion is taking the life of an innocent human being. I believe life begins at conception and it is the duty of our government to protect this life. I will always vote for any and all legislation that would end abortion or lead us in the direction of ending abortion.

Once it is viable outside the Mother's womb, I would agree. Prior to that, it cannot survive and cannot be considered wholly as an individual. It is certainly human and murdering it should certainly be a crime.
That is why the Amendment works better than a simple definition change.
Thank you Judge Blackmun.
You've completely outed yourself.
You're a perfect fit with Rand Paul.
You say that like it is a bad thing.
And no... Judge Blackmun exceeded his rightful authority in deciding Roe. There is nothing in the US Constitution that gave the FedGov the power to overturn that Texas Law.
Again, you are just holding on to your bitter little theory as you feel that admitting it is lacking in logic and legal standing would be cause for us to think less of you.
In fact, the opposite is true. I'd laud you for seeing reason rather than letting your personal agenda continue to make you look silly.
I see. You’d think well of me if I joined you in pretending that the Fourteenth Amendment doesn’t exist, and that little children aren’t persons. How nice.
I’d think better of you if I thought you could be honest about this. As it is, I don’t think you can.
I couldn’t care less what someone like you thinks of me.
You should. If someone like me can see through your blatant posturing, others can even more easily.
Maybe. I could be projecting reason and logic and expecting it in others where there is none.
