Bingo! So, what you are saying is that anti abortion is your most compelling issue in voting.
Next: gay marriage
Did you read my recent posts?

Think this topic has been adequately addressed.

medical care...
"Healthcare" is a political slogan.
People who come to the emergency room for minor illnesses (colds, etc.) should be turned away and told to take two aspirin and call their doctor in the morning.
Well ya see, this is how some people think....if you go to a doctor, and you have regular insurance, you have to pay your copay before you are treated. But if you go to the ER, even if it is for something minor that you should be going to your private doctor for, they have to treat you even if you don't pay your copay. I work in the ER, you wouldn't believe how many people tell us that this is exactly what they do.

How is that different that what you posted?
Seemed to me you were using that source to argue global warming isn't a dead issue.

But your source agreed with mine.

Maybe you should go back and read both of them again?

"per capita" - look it up.
Something else you may consider. The local NOWCARE or PatientFirst is more capable of handling medicare care than most facilities over there. Thus it costs more. Within ten miles of this house is seven or eight hospitals and a lot of patient care facilities. How many do they have in the same area. The American people are over medicated but have the most technologically advanced medical system in the world. Per capita.

Galt I agree with most of your post but I’m curious… Who should speak for the Unborn?
Galt is opposed to abortion after the fetus is viable. Before then the question is purely religious and not medical. Just don't try to impose your religion on others.

So, how do we prevent these Democrats from committing mass murder?
Part of the security for the Navy Yard is the security clearance required.
How did this person get a security clearance? Obviously, he should not have.
But, if he didn't have a security clearance, he would have just killed a bunch of defenseless white people somewhere else.
Why are mass murderers attracted to the Democratic Party?
If we took all the guns away from Democrats, wouldn't that prevent all these mass murders?
The idiot O'bama and his liberal conspirators should start by admitting that while the government is looking at everything and everyone it is apparently seeing nothing. The surveillance state failed again. Possibly it could be, the liberals yelling 'racist' each time someone comments on a black guy. You know the saying "if you see something, say something?"--they need to add unless it is a black man you racist.

I work in a very large emergency room, you would be surprised what people come in for: bug bites, rashes, constipation, headaches, tooth pain, fussy baby, medication refills (mostly narcotics), stuffy nose, etc.....Many come by ambulance because they get a bed quicker that way. These are not rare occurrences, they happen every day.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) supports restoring voting rights for convicted felons who have completed their sentences, the Courier-Journal reported Monday.

Speaking at Louisville's Plymouth Community Renewal Center, Paul said he would push for changes to legislation to make it easier for felons to restore their right to vote and own firearms upon completing their sentences. Under current Kentucky law, felons must petition the governor in order to regain these rights.

“I am in favor of letting people get their rights back, the right to vote ... Second Amendment rights, all your rights to come back," Paul said. "I know of one man who 30-some-odd years ago had pot plants in his closet in college, got a felony conviction in college, still can’t vote, and it’s plagued him his whole life trying to get work."

Paul linked felon voting rights to the problem of disenfranchisement in African-American communities.

"One in three young black males has been convicted of a felony and they’ve lost their voting rights. I think it dwarfs all other (election-related) issues," Paul said, according to WFPL.

Mandatory minimums have trapped a lot of people, made them felons, made it hard for them to get jobs, for non-violent crimes," Paul said, according to the Associated Press. "I would just as soon take some of these non-violent crimes and make them misdemeanors so you don't get in that trap."

No, he got until Oct 1.

She pressured Scott to postpone it so they're both getting beat up in the media.

BTW, Crist is beginning to make the rounds of (D) gatherings__I'll be real surprised if he can become a serious challenger.

Grab a newspaper. Things aren't as great as you seem to think on the homefront or abroad.

Start with Obamacare and only 30% of Americans saying they might have a clue what to expect. Or the rise in part-time jobs going off the charts.

Then we'll tackle something else. Like maybe the number of homes on real estate sites that are either in foreclosure or bank owned and short sales. Too many to count.

Good luck trying to convince her of that; you are the voice of reason regarding this topic. Carol is a religious fanatic; the candidates know how to get to them using that issue and gay marriage; happens everytime. Gays, guns and God.
Constitutionally, until when life begins is defined and the guarantee of life is constitutionally mandated, it is each state's perogative. The federal government has no role in the matter, other than to guarantee those constitutionally mandated individual rights to every living person.

Originally, this was about access to contraception. The Supreme Court stepped way outside of its constitutional bounds when it forced every state to legalize abortion.

Why would anybody believe that people who are too indifferent to have a family physician will suddenly become responsible and stop running to the emergency room just because they have insurance?
They will be running to ER's a lot more because a lot of docs are leaving medicine and they won't be able to find a family doc who will be able to accept new patients.

No, it's not dead. It will be resurrected as it always is during elections; that's how your candidates control you; you are an issues voter based on religious conviction.
