    Actually, my worst nightmare is people like the far right zealots who actually have a clue about political power and the electoral system in this country. But since that is not going to happen, you keep right on dreaming.

    No, since my point was that its as legitimate to view the fetus as a child as it is to view it as a parasite. AND if one views it as a child, with all the rights one would have, then its within the realm of libertarian philosophy to be pro-life because the womans rights doesn't overrule the childs rights and the woman essentially agreed to carry the child by engaging in the action that led to the child being there.

    There is a legitimate and sound argument to be made about a fetus being worthy of full human rights. I've never heard anyone seriously and legitimately argue that a tape worm should be. So the analogy fails.

    You do understand that technically a fetus is a parasite, defined as an organism?
    Yes, I do realize that. Its an irrelevant point to the argument of whether or not a libertarian can be pro-life.

    There's a large difference between suggesting that the Tea Party's membership with regards to party affiliation has a large non-Republican segment and suggesting that the Tea Party's membership with regards to political ideology is largely conservative. I would definitely say the majority of its appeal is towards those who lean right to some degree.

    Not the Tea Party's fault that only mostly white people are a part of it. Does this make them more right or wrong?

    What' s up? Are people saying that blacks are racist because they don't want to join a white organization? I can't read everything.

    Thanks, people need to be careful putting Americans into groups. Where I grew up you were either Irish or you were Italian. But nobody ever thought we had groups. If the Italians had started championing the Irish and defending them the Irish might have felt that they were thought to be inferior and in need of help. People can fight their own battles.
