I live in Tennessee. It is a red state. There is a webshow called “Red State Update” that is broadcasted from Tennessee. I too used to be a
neo-con before I woke up to the truth. I hear many neo-con republicans saying we need to vote for the GOP because they are pro-life, a.k.a.
anti-abortion. We need them in there to help save the lives of innocent babies. For those that think that way please let me ask you a question.
Abortion was legalized during the Carter Administration. He did not have the power to over turn the supreme court ruling. If Roe V. Wade was to ever
be over turned it, the ban would have to start as a bill in congress. Congress would have to pass it. Then it would go to the senate, the senate would
have to pass it. Then the president would get it, the President would then have to sign the bill into law to make abortion illegal.
If for any reason it did have to go before the supreme court, it wouldn’t have been an issue. The supreme court justices are appointed by the US
President. In which would most likely be people of a similar political party. So lets just focus on the years after the Carter administration. The GOP
controlled both the House and the Senate all through the Reagan years until six years into the current Bush administration.
Of those years, the GOP controlled the Presidency and Supreme Court for 18 years. Eight years during the Reagan administration, four years during H.
W. Bush’s administration, and six years of W. Bush’s administration. Giving us a total of 18 years that the GOP has controlled the House, Senate,
Presidency, and Supreme Court since abortion was legalized.
Now here is my question to all the supporters of the Republican party because they are supposedly anti-abortion: Why is it that for 18 years the
republican party had the opportunity and power to make abortion illegal, but never did?
My opinion is they never made it illegal because the Republicans aren’t really anti-abortion. They just say it to get your vote, because they know
you will never vote for a third party candidate like Chuck Baldwin that is truly anti-abortion.
