Pro-Life Democrats!

On the conservative and Republican side of things, conservatives are generally against abortion. More and more Republicans, especially the younger ones are coming out for abortion. Even before I crossed over, as a young Democrat, I knew of pro-choice Republicans, but officially the Republican Party Platform to date is against abortion.

On the other hand, the Democratic Party Platform stands officially for abortion. I went through a time feeling that abortion was okay, but my spiritual growth put an end to that while still a Democrat. I come across many conservatives that assume all Democrats are for abortion. That is not true, but the Democrat Party hierarchy likes to keep a lid on the anti-abortion folks within the party.

 The late Robert P. Casey who was a former Democratic governor of my state of Pennsylvania was staunch pro-life. He was denied a speaking slot at the 1992 National Democratic Convention to speak on behalf of pro-life Democrats. Former President, Jimmy Carter is also pro-life and feels the Democratic Party should back away from their official pro-abortion (for any reason) stance. He said so on the Laura Ingraham radio talk program not that long ago. Go here for more.

But He is Still Like Carter

When it comes to the continuing American military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan and the military actions in Libya, there is the morph of Pres. Obama from George W. Bush. During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama said he would quickly pull the military out of Iraq and Afghanistan. But Pres. Obama maintained and increased Bush military directives in those countries respectively. And even though the reports are that there are no ground troops, there is a United Sates military presence in Libya. Pres. Obama continuing and increasing on George Bush’s military policies has greatly disappointed many of his supporters.

Now when it comes to domestic policies, I am in the camp that sees Pres. Obama as most like former Pres. Jimmy Carter. Whether he will be a one term President like Jimmy Carter remains to be seen. We still have a lot of time before the 2012 presidential election really gets under way. We still do not have much of an idea of who will be the Republican presidential challenger. Listen to the following audio from the Laura Ingraham radio show.
