What did The Cooch mean, " has to take care of his own" in this story? Aren't they both trying to woo the extreme end of that party?

Does that mean the the gubernatorial candidate wants to appeal to more than the self-identified Judeo-Christians (see EW nonprofit S.T.A.N.D)---our national destiny is based on Judeo-Christian ethics).

If this is the best the Republican Party can do in Virginia, already I have heard many of my more conservative friends say EW wont have their vote.

If decrying the slaughter of over 50 million innocents in this country since Roe v. Wade makes him a nut job then I guess Im a nut job too. And the assertion that a disproportionate number of these "terminations" is among the Black community is also true. Millions holding the spark of human potential wiped out. We're gonna reap what we sow someday.

Many blacks are slaves to the democrats. Democrats create, propose, and enact a lot of the legislation that creates the social welfare programs that people in ghettos abuse -and they abuse it by choice because they know that they can.

They live in public housing squaller -just a cinderblock apartment with 1 bedroom and a dirty tile floor. They swipe that EBT for everything, and they have kids to get the paycheck. Democrats buy these people their votes and they live essentially just like slaves -albeit slaves with an allowance. Go see these places, interact with these people, and you'll see what's wrong with it all.

We've been taught for a long time that racist is wrong, but we've gotten into being such good people that we don't even know what being racist is anymore.

Identifying problems within a community if the happen to be black isn't racism, but many people will immediately call it that -besides, he's black; it's impossible for him to be racist by today's standards.

The guy has a point that planned parenthood tells women that their kids are worthless and its okay to flush them... It is ironoc that people complain about disproportionate black adults in jail but disproportionate black babies mean nothing.

As far as gays and pedophiles.. what he said is that the natural order (from god or nature) is heterosexuality in order to propogste the species. So homosexuality while a natural occurence is not "normal" because it does not propogate the species. If you accept that scientific assertion as fact then by default pedophiles are also not "normal" even though their existance is a natural occurenece in humans. Where he makes his mistake is that homesexuality is an exercise by two consenting adults and pedophilia is a crime against a child that needs to be punished.

His views of democrats duping blacks with trinkets is spot on.

I guess most of you want to ignore the truth. And the truth is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist that practiced Eugenics. She believed that the white race was superior. The majority of Planned Parenthood Clinics are located in the black sections of large cities. Like it or not comparing the KKK to an organization that was started to kill black babies is not that much of a stretch.

It is also ironic that the GOP says that life begins at conception, but once the baby is born it should be on it's own. The baby is hungry, too bad. No food stamps for you. The baby needs to go to the doctor, too bad. No medicaid for you. The child wants to get and education. Too bad, we want to get rid of the Department of Education and no Pell Grants or loans. An innocent child wants to be safe from gun violence. Too bad, we can't do any gun control measures.

It looks like the GOP would be happy about abortions. You know, it would reduce the number of "moochers" living off the government.

Every single word in my post is true. So now you want to change history to fit your narrative. I didn't say that I agree with everything the candidate has said just this one.

I see what you did there, it's called the association fallacy, so let me argue ad nauseam. David Duke was a Republican, David Duke was a Klansman, so by your logic, all Republicans are Klansmen. Bill Clinton was a democrat. Bill Clinton was cheated on his wife. Therefore, by your logic, all democrats cheat on their wives. Larry Craig is a republican. Larry Craig is a hypocritical homosexual, therefore by your logic all republicans are hypocritical homosexuals. Eliot Spitzer is a democrat, Eliot Spitzer visited prostitutes. All democrats visit prostitutes.
Sure, she was a proponent of eugenics and a racist, but that by no means indicates that her reproductive rights movement and contraceptive advocacy meant she targeted any specific group.

Not if we had more Dr. Gosnell's like the abortion Dr. in Philadelphia. Planned Parenthood hid his practice for years. When a baby is born alive in his office he just clips it's spinal cord or drops it in an acid solution. Isolated case; sorry, now there are two other doctors under investigation for the same practices.

Guilt by association still exists but that wasn't my point. I just stated a fact that the organization was started by a racist who's intention was to abort as many minority babies as possible. Pro lifers believe begins at conception so therefore they believe abortion is liken to murder. And when most of the clinics are in minority neighborhoods some in the black community see it as an attempt to exterminate black children.

Have you ever been guilty of association fallacy? I bet I could back through you posts and find some questionable associations.
