    This is why it's so hard to take most pro-choice arguments serioulsy. Many of them have a primitive understanding of biology.

    There is no debate about when "life" begins because the scientific community has already come to a consensus on what constitutes "life", i.e., the quality which distinguishes living organisms from non-living things. Unborn humans are alive, rocks are not. Pretty simple.

    I'm not bitching and moaning about how poorly I am treated. I'm identifying and refuting stupid arguments about Ron Paul.

    No he's not. Ron Paul just has a tendency to speak philosophically about the issues. He outlines the end we should seek and sometimes that "end" contrasts sharply with contemporary circumstances, giving the appearance of extremism.

    Ron Paul has often said he understands the need for moderation in policy change. He doesn't want to ax all welfare entitlements immediately; people just think he does. If you could be bothered to learn something about the man instead of skimming a list of things he's voted for and picking out the titles that sound "crazy" this wouldn't be such a terse discussion.

    You know it's just sour grapes; the disgruntled mutterings of frightened folks displaced from power, and uncertain whether they'll ever find their way back to relevance again.

    Then they wised up and joined the flat earth society….just kidding.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And I support Obama for the issues. Hell, I'm a Democrat because of the issues.
    Look, in Obama's own words :
    "There are people that disagree with me on a partisan basis, that I can't do anything about, and there are those who are opposed because they feel that government should not interfere with their lives... I just happen to disagree."

    Care to explain how and why you support the bills Obama has propsed : civilian youth squads, 'reasonable restrictions' on guns like DC (total ban), government takeover of the auto industry, the socialization of medicare, among the other things that he's done...

    It's fine to be generally democratic or republican, but don't let it blind you either...

    Where are these civilian youth squads and why are they sinister? What gun control legislation has Obama proposed or signed? When did Medicare and Medicaide change to be other than at least somewhat socialist?

    I think one of us has "drank the koolaid", and it isn't me.

    By the way, I support the second amendment, I oppose a pubic option in health care reform, and divided on the auto industry bailout.

    The civilian youth squads is the GIVE act, Obama didn't support the DC total ban, Medicare IS a socialist program and was from the beginning, and I forget the other thing the dude said, but yea, you nailed it, total koolaid drinker, and it wasn't you doing the drinking.

    This GIVE act? Mandatory Public Service | FactCheck.org

    Drinking the koolaid is stupid no matter what side you are on. I really think it is more common on the right, and especially among libertarians, than it is on the left.

    Yup, that's known is some circles at the civilian youth squads act

    You're right, koolaid comes in red and blue and purple flavors, it's true.
