    So, hardly how it went, now was it sir? As you dismissed it, without reasons as if it were just a universal truth, i asked you if you were in agreement with a holocaust. Now, if you feel guilty about your views, not my fault.

    Are you at all familiar with the amount of abortions that have been perpetrated in just this country since roe? The holocaust was minor in comparison. Over 50 million. So maybe you get the analogy... Now?

    And again, to summarily choose what the rest of the country does for the rest of us...and its not up for debate? That is just plain silliness. If you and your wife decided to kill your 5 year old daughter, nobody in the rest of the country should be able to say anything, that is just between you and your family? No. Not how it goes, nor how it should go. The fact that a baby in the womb has separate dna [distinctly individual at conception], is alive and growing, certainly is human cause the baby in the womb is certainly not a squirrel… well, you may think you and your family can decide to kill another american in such a cavalier manner, many of the rest of us are going to make it as hard as we can to murder others, whether the law admits its murder or not, right at this point.

    We will finally come to our senses as a country and you are just out and out wrong. So lets see you prove yourself capable of reasoned thought on the issue...or just want to dictate to the rest of us... Or send just silly insults.

    Isn't this a long-winded way of saying "ideology"?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I voted Healthcare, but that's wrong when I think about it.

    Republicans are polarized against Obamacare as a whole, but love the vast bulk of it.

    A better choice is abortion as Democrats are much more likely to support where Republicans, after purging Libertarians and moderates are against it.

    I feel the rest of them aren't polarized as much as abortion is as there are plenty of gun right Democrats, several gun control Republicans, gay marriage is youth republicans and democrats against old republicans, spending everyone basically agrees on the framework, and immigration has plenty of democrats against it and several high profile republicans for it.

    There aren't. People hold ideological position X, they are told that their position is for issues A, B and C and against issues X, Y and Z. They rarely bother to think about any of those issues, they just vote the way they're told they're supposed to.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's none of your business. I get that you're as nosy as the day is long, and you've given yourself permission to be so. However, your opinion is meaningless. Women have always aborted, and they always will, and they don't give two ****s and a good goddamn WHAT you think.

    Looks like somebody cared enough to post back nastily back, eh...??? And wrong, murder, and how to deal with murderers, is the business of a civilized society. Glad to inform. And you have a good day too.

    You know what's really ****ed up, somehow in the land of magical partisan idiocy, the following totally unrelated issues became strongly correlated to each other:

    Gun control, Abortion, Gay Marriage, Government spending/debt, Immigration, Healthcare

    The most polarizing issue in America today: Stupid versus not ****ing stupid. Not ****ing stupid is losing badly.
