    While that statement is true its rare anyone interested in politics can use it as an attack on another. How many liberals want to push programs on others for moral reasons even a tax system that really allows the government use its authority of force beyond the punishing violations of rights of another. Sorry, but I understand this is a big argument of pro-choice people in this debate but I have yet to meet one that can actually use it.

    As usual, I strongly disagree with your comments yet appreciate your honesty. You're right, the conservative position here, as usual, is all about punishment.

    Punishment is really about all we can generally work with. We cannot force people not to make bad decisions. All we can do is to make the consequences of those bad decisions as unpleasant as humanly possible. That will stop some and at least make the rest dislike the results a lot more.

    Don't thank them quite yet. I think you might be surprised at their opinions on the matter when you get to the other side of Eternity.

    Yes because you've had contact with them I'm assuming.

In the past they were dealt with by the individuals and families in society, but those groups have since chosen to stop enforcing any form of morality, so it is left to the Government to deal with.

    Conservatism isn't about having NO Government or having an Impotent Government. Conservatism is about focusing Government's immense power on the right things.
    How ironic is it when a poster who thinks govt should enforce morality whines the loudest when it enforces a morality he disagrees with?

    And you don't NEED a wife.

    People having the right to act in an immoral manner is NEVER a good thing.

    If they're old enough to have sex, they're old enough to take Plan B.

    Don't be so modest. I don't think anyone gives any weight to your opinions.
