The only reason that abortion is even an issue is that the GOP won't give it up. The Democrats wouldn't really care about it if the Right wouldn't
shove their beliefs down everyone's throats every time there's an election.
It's amusing to me that a party that's supposedly all for personal liberty wants to dictate to women what they can and cannot do with their bodies.
There is an elegant solution to the abortion issue. If you are against abortion, don't have one. Problem solved.
What the Democrats need to do in order to really screw up the GOP platform is talk about gun control. They have absolutely no spine when it comes to
anything to do with gun control. They let the Right dictate that issue with a passion, and they do nothing about it. Meanwhile we have shootings like
Columbine, Georgia Tech, Arizona, Colorado (again), etc. and no one from the left can grow a pair and say "Hey, do we really really need this amount
of firearms in this country?"
I think that Democrats should start getting tough with Republicans on these issues. They have been bullied way too long by a group of overly religious
and bigoted nutjobs for far too long.
Or, we could compromise, the GOP can keep their guns, and the Democrats can keep Abortion.
The Economy? The GOP has had control of the house for how long? And they haven't done squat about the economy. Instead they wasted your's and my tax
dollars reciting the US Constitution.
