Left: That is an 8 week old fetus. Yes it was alive.
Over at the NY Times they have a running display of where the candidates stand on several issues, but after reading a few something started to bother me. The Democrats are VERY inconsistent about their appraisal of federal government. For example: they unanimously agree that the federal gov't should instate universal health care of one sort or another - a traditional big gov't proposal. Centralize everything. They only appear interested in allowing American citizens the right of choice in one key area: murder. I'll leave it there since my prejudice is clear, but I think the picture on the left explains it all.
