IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCKKK AND QUACKS LIKE A DUCKKK, IT MUST BE A ROOSTER?
Make no mistake about it, arguing that the Confederate States of America were right in their cause does not make Ron Paul a racist or White supremacist. Contributing to Stormfront’s political conspiracy to invade the Domincan Islands could be seen as a mere rumor; that doesn’t give Ron Paul a racist bone in his body. Permitting racist newsletters written by someone else but is otherwise in your name is not racist. Arguing that the Civil Rights Act of `1964 (let alone still talking about it) is an act of violence against business people is again, not racist. Raising a son who basically said the same thing about the CRA 1964 does nothing in no way appeal to White Supremacists.
And you know what? Bring up the Civil War and why the South was on the right side of history surely is a sign that Ron Paul is reaching out to black people.
“In the video [posted below] he claims that the North should have paid to buy slaves from southern slave owners to avoid the war, rather than the South renouncing slavery.”
There is no problem at all with Ron Paul arguing that the North should have paid the South to free the slaves. Nothing racist about that at all. How much were enslaved Blacks worth back then, $1000, give or take a piece? Maybe women may have been worth more, right, since they could have made more enslaved black babies? Ron Paul is pro-life, and he believes life is sacred, and you can’t put a price-tag on human life, that’s why he IS against the Civil War.
I kid you not – the Republicans in the South Dakota House have introduced a bill allowing for justifiable homicide for those who harm the unborn:
FOR AN ACT ENTITLED, An Act to expand the definition of justifiable homicide to provide for the protection of certain unborn children.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
Section 1. That § 22-16-34 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-34. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to harm the unborn child of such person in a manner and to a degree likely to result in the death of the unborn child, or to commit any felony upon him or her, or upon or in any dwelling house in which such person is.
Section 2. That § 22-16-35 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-35. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person in the lawful defense of such person, or of his or her husband, wife, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant, or the unborn child of any such enumerated person, if there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony, or to do some great personal injury, and imminent danger of such design being
This is what we like to call, ‘The Final Solution.’ Or, perhaps, drawing your beliefs to the final conclusion. If you make an abortion a crime, what do you do to those who have them or perform them, and like this bill, with no exemption? Is it a misdemeanor like a parking ticket. It won’t pass – and more than likely, will not see the end of the day, but the fact is, is that more than one sponsor signed on to this.
I wonder if this also includes mothers who smoke, drink, or people who speed with a pregnant woman in their car, or live in Baton Rouge (cancer ally)?
The author of the bill says that it has absolutely nothing to do with abortion… and the income tax had nothing to do with health care either when it was first introduced (although I don’t believe the author of the bill)…
Republican members proposed three pieces of legislation imposing new regulations on marriage and divorce in Oklahoma. Two of the measures were defeated, but another — requiring counseling for those planning to wed, and therapy sessions for couples considering divorce — is awaiting action.
The issue has produced sharp clashes among conservative colleagues who normally find themselves in agreement. The debates have featured charges of hypocrisy and of betraying Republican principles against government intrusion into private lives.
“How far do I want government to come into my home and your home about private personal matters?” asked Rep. Leslie Osborn, a Republican from Tuttle, in a debate. She referred to state government as a “huge monster.”
The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children. In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest. – State Delegate Bob Marshall (here)
No, Delegate Marshall, God’s doesn’t work that way. Read John 9 and Romans 2.
Let me restate his theological idea: Disabled children are God’s punishment.
John McCain’s top adviser from the presidential campaign urged fellow Republicans on Friday to warm up to gay rights and warned that the GOP risks becoming the “religious party” with its opposition to same-sex marriage.
Steve Schmidt, in his first political appearance since the election, spoke at the Washington, D.C., convention for the Log Cabin Republicans — a grassroots group for gay and lesbian Republicans.
He urged Republicans, in the near-term, to endorse civil unions and stop using the Bible as rationale for gay-marriage opposition.
