    nice open mike we got there. /sarcasm

    ...all part of the vetting process, as those mikes will be there after the election as well. If Romney can't set the agenda as a the challenger, with the money he has and the Obama record, then Romney is too weak to lead.

    Tax Payers are responsible for the courts, for the police, etc, etc. not for restitution.

    We are pandering to rape victims only because some politicians find a way to benefit politically from the conflicted views Americans have on abortion.
    Sorry for the bump, but I've still got a bit of an unanswered question here. Okay first, there are forms of restitution that we fund. The death penalty is nice example that somehow conservatives backwardly support at the same time. It costs a crap load to put somebody on death row and it really, in reality, is to give a sense of closure to victims or victims by association. From the research I've done, there isn't really much of a benefit to the death penalty with the exception of the closure it gives to families that want it. It's not cheap, it's not easy, and it's not a more severe punishment. It is, in the most basic form, a form of restitution. Granted, it's not a wide spread restitution currently, but I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that you probably supported it. Even if you didn't, it's one small example that I've mustered in quick thought among many. I'm sure you pay for a lot more than you are aware of. Think about it, if somebody wants to sue, you're paying for their restitution too. You're not paying it directly, but the process for it to happen is on your dollar. I'd love to sit here and spit out more examples, but I'm hoping you see my point.

    I don't know what's more distressing...

    the fact that government believes it has the right to legislate how, when and under what circumstances a woman is allowed reproductive choice,

    the fact that government has decreed that only "forcible rape" victims or minors victimized by incest are "allowed" the dignity of choice without having a clue as to what "evidence" must be provided to "prove" rape actually occurred,

    Or the fact that saving the life or health of the mother wasn't even mentioned, because presumably if a woman becomes pregnant by consentual sex and complications of that pregnancy later threaten or life or her future reproductive abilities, too-bad so-sad.

    I remember the 60's. It wasn't a great time to be a woman. Now in the 21st century, women's rights are eroding back to the bad old days. This nation should be ashamed.
