A woman's body is her property, to do with as she wishes."



    do you fully support the democrat platform? I disagree and you note they say "majority".... I am in the minority, but I am more than happy to debate my fellow libertarians to death on the issue.

    By the way, on another note: those suggesting racism are being totally unfair. Nothing the tea party does or backs is racist in any way. The tea party is no more racist for not having many minorities than the democratic party is for attracting those minorities.

    I'm only pointing it out because of how funny their reaction is to it. They seriously have a problem with belonging to a mostly white group and I'm not sure why.

    But are you all against reigning in the debt?

    It's just trolling. I'm used to it. I appreciate you pointing out and like Shewolf showing that this whole racism angle is the foolish execption, not the norm.

    I'm still waiting for an answer. Why does it matter that the Tea Party is mostly dissatisfied white people? Why does it matter that it is a movement of white people?
