    You guys hate everything, and yet, somehow you still pull off presidential victories.

    Even conservative pundits say they must change. The must change their views (or pretend to change)on key demographics in the US. This included Hispanic vote, gay vote, and in this particular case, the womens vote

    I've outlined my "3 steps to making the republican party competitive again" many times.

    1. Accept gay marriage (institutional tolerance) and adoption (helps pro-life position).
    2. Moderate the pro-life rhetoric. Go for weeks instead of a ban.
    3. Moderate the immigration rhetoric. Stop the "even if you are 45 and got to the US at age 3, you don't know anyone or the language of your home country, we will nonetheless kick your ass out".

    That should bring enough of the gay, woman and moderate on immigration to make things competitive.



    A state vs. federal tax issue with semantic implications? That's nothing if not an opportunity for hackery.

    Can the hysterics, madman. Everyone knows that Santa Claus is unbeatable. Gloat now, but the lies will catch up with you. Let's just pray that America is still intact when they do.

    We must all kneel before these Gods of righteousness

    Only they have access to supreme absolute moral truths

    I noticed that you didn't mention the support for freedom and democracy. Now that would be very radical wouldn't it ladies and gentlemen?

    Also the cessation of civilian slaughtering in other defenseless nations with the imperial fascist military forces.

    Dont you find it odd that the bulk of the US population cannot entertain any political questions other than the superficial ones rammed down their throats by the University of Hollywood ad corporately owned mass media?

    Like puppet clowns they repeat the gay marriage, abortion, gun ownership issues whilst the fascist Corpocracy de-rims their rectii on an hourly basis

    Yeah, everyone should be a liberal, open the border, through out "marriage is between a man and a woman", and give free stuff to woman. Got it.

    They should have kept the tax credit for children and also instituted this. As it stands it sends a very bad message (as is obvious with the posts in this thread) and makes people think that they are trying for a back door to end abortion. After all, if a woman gets pregnant and aborts the ZEF after getting the tax credit it is quite possible that they can use that as grounds to say "See! They took advantage of a system that was meant for live persons so they must think that that ZEF is alive and deserving of that tax credit and thereby it should also be alive enough to be granted personhood!" They can also use it to throw those women that abort in jail for commiting fraud. Thinking that it is one way to punish women that get abortions without running afoul of the right to privacy laws.

    Good luck with that one. Once the Religious Right got in bed with the Republicans, it was all over for moderation.
