    I live in NH which is why I have a good understanding of it, and I worked on Ayotte's campaign in 2012 even though I didn't vote for her in the primary.

    No, that's Tres Borrachos in my avatar. He's a racehorse also in training at Los Alamitos (where CC is based). Tres ran in the Derby, I think in 2006. Didn't fare well but he has won over $1 million in his career. I have a soft spot in my heart for him. Still running at 9 because he's a gelding.

    Oh no, are you one of those anti-Chromies?
    No I was pulling for California Chrome, but that interview after the race with the owner was just painful to watch.

    Yeah, poor Coburn needs a little help in the PR category.

    I was very sad about CC. I really enjoy that horse. I look forward to seeing him in the BC Classic in the Fall.

    Of course they can. What sort of stupid assertation is it to claim that libertarians couldn't be pro-life? It's like saying an atheist cannot be pro life.

Others, like myself, may hold that view but recognize that our view is subjective and even religiously based and as such we do not have the right to impose that view on someone else by force of law. Others still, simply don't see the ZEF as an individual and thus the choice is up to the mother/woman
    Not sure what you're "challenging". I never said anything otherwise.

    Or Democrat.

    It means just that. Libertarianism isn't synonymous with anarchy, and there are libertarian philosophies which also argue for the use of government in various social constructs such as healthcare, unemployment, welfare, etc.
