Opening morning of the 2008 Republican State Convention, Dave Reichert gave a speech specifically designed to taunt Ron Paul supporters, claiming, over and over again, loudly, that the Party was united behind Illegal Amnesty and Environmentalist Energy Rationing proponent John McCain. He first drew boos. Liking that, he repeated himself, working to drive a wedge into the heart of the Party. Then a chant of simply “RON PAUL, RON PAUL, RON PAUL” shook the convention floor. The chant was so loud, audio of the event was altered by officials of the State Party prior to public posting to erase the record. Continue reading
There is more than one lesson to be learned by Mitt’s actual record. Continue reading
…an enemy outside your camp (Hillary) makes you vigilant; an enemy inside your tent (Rudy) makes you dead. He can cut your throat in the night, or poison your food in the day. Rudy will slowly destroy the meager gains we have made, and will set the core of the GOP at war with itself. He will set the pro-life movement back 20 years… Continue reading
Politics Jaded. Prayer Works. Who Knew?
It started Sunday, November 4th. Fred Thompson, the man whom many conservatives hoped would be “the next Ronald Reagan”, committed the un-Reaganesque thumbing of nose at the pro-life plank of the Republican Party platform. It happened on “Meet the Press”. Tim Russert, his persistent interviewer, read the entire plank aloud, and asked for Thompson’s position on it. He opposed it. It was a serious blow to many of his pro-life supporters.
Committed pro-lifers who are fairly new to the 30 year debate over how best to strategically end legalized abortion, might consider his mere opposition to supporting a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution acceptable, especially in light of his support for overturning Roe vs. Wade. If one considered it long enough, one would realize that his position, supporting the overturning of Roe, and then leaving it to the states, would have allowed slavery to continue in some states.
But it gets worse. When pressed, Thompson said, that although he believes that life begins at conception, and that abortion is the taking of a human life, he doesn’t believe it ought to be “criminalized” (read: made illegal).
The blow set off…. Continue reading
Life of the Party exists to keep the Republican Party pro-life. To that end, complete information and commentary about Republican candidates for President, U.S. Congressional and U.S. Senate races, as well as state gubernatorial and legislative races can be found (there). These are the men and women who have the power to write our laws and decide whether or not we will protect innocent human life in our laws.
It is not usually within the scope of this endeavor to provide you with complete information on every city’s or county’s local race. But from time to time, Life of the Party may come across information that pro-lifers in Washington State would want to know about some of the local races.
This is one such time. NARAL has posted their endorsements, and pro-lifers might be surprised at some of the Republicans listed. You might even find one who’s been endorsed by someone you trusted to give you good pro-life information. Hopefully you see this before you fill out your ballots.
This was originally posted back in February at Life of the Party and caught broad attention from the pro-life community. Apparently one of the subjects missed it and so Jefferson Paine’s joke was lost on him. Note: The pig is not Eric, but NARAL and the pro-abortion movement. The lipstick on the other hand….
Have you noticed NARAL’s new shade of lipstick? They call it “Personal Responsibility” but we call it “Sounds Orange“. It’s the same old pig (abortion on demand) with a new shade of lipstick (euphemism) and they’ve chosen this one to appeal to conservative leaning, Constitution loving Americans.
NARAL and their friends at NOW and Planned Parenthood have always struggled with a PR problem. They have always known that the majority of Americans don’t like abortion, and in fact, find it unpleasant to think about, so they must find ways to mask it and dress it up. Continue reading
