In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    Obama Sweeps Races

    Yeah, I think the momentum will carry over to Maine tomorrow. I've heard some analysts say that Clinton may be swept all the way through next Tuesday and up until Wisconsin and Hawaii vote on February 19. If that would happen (meaning Obama wins Maine, Maryland, D.C., and Virginia), Obama...

    Phony Candidates

    I think one thing that is extremely important when deciding who to vote for is to consider which candidates actually believe what they are saying and which candidates have changed their views in order to gain public support. I've thought a lot about this and here are my opinions: Barack Obama...

    Ron Paul - foreign policy

    Is that really what the enemy wants? To destroy our freedoms? You honestly think that OBL is pissed off at America because we are free? Because we are democratic? Nope, Ron Paul's got it right on this one. OBL hates us because we insist on occupying Mid-East countries when we have no...

    Rick Ankiel and HGH

    I'm from St. Louis and have been a Cardinals fan all my life (18 years). I was disgusted by McGwire's "no comment" in court and despise any payers who use steroids to get an advantage. And now Rick Ankiel, who's been my hero for the past month, is under pressure from the media because he used...

    Change and Experience

    "Senator Obama does represent change. Senator Clinton has experience. Change and experience. With me, you get both." -- Bill Richardson, quote from Richardson Stands Out In Latest Democratic Debate - Local News Story - KOAT Albuquerque Richardson said this during the Iowa debate at Drake...

    Hillary slipping?

    Did you say Hillary ""alienates half the country" by standing up to the right wing? Last time I checked, the majority of Americans are not right-wingers. The majority of Americans can be persuaded to vote for either Republican or Democratic candidates (which is a big reason why we have a...

    Democrat presidential candidates patronize the gay community.

    What difference does it make if they are homosexual by choice or by genetics? They should still be treated the same as heterosexuals! And why would anyone think that attempting to persuade the gay community to vote for a condidate is "low and disgusting"? There's nothing wrong with trying to...

    Take the candidate blind taste test

    I personally like this quiz the best: VoteMatch Quiz Here are my top 4, surprisingly accurate since Biden and Obama have been my favorites since the very first debate. I know the quiz isn't perfect, but I think it covers most of the important issues and it gives info to back up its claims...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    How many times do I have to say it? I DON'T CARE IF EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH IS LEGAL OR ILLEGAL. I HAVEN'T DONE ENOUGH RESEARCH TO KNOW WHICH IS BETTER FOR AMERICA. Got it? Life may be protected in the Constitution. Fine. That may make E-research illegal, but certainly not immoral...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    Logically: I provided an awesomely simple logic statement and you disagreed witht the very first premise, that it is better to live and die (and even go to heaven) than never live at all. I don't understand why you would say that, and I don't think anybody else does either. Even Talloulou...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    No, I consider anyone except clones to be considered natural human beings. Good. STOP! The premise is a fact, not an opinion! You don't need to agree to the morality of the statement, you only need to agreee that it is a true statment. For the sake of the logic statement, we have to back...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    The right to life is not agreed upon as on of these inalienable rights. That's why we debate stuff like this. Some think it is, some think it isn't. You're getting into government and laws. I'm not trying to say that stem-cell research should be legal. Only that it is moral. Although I...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    If "evil actions" are logically and morally justified, they aren't evil actions. There is nothing twisted about believing that stem-cell research is good if you can morally justify the actions that you take. The problem is that you are not open to the possibilitiy that you might be wrong, that...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    No, I can't. I can only rationalize doing it to clones. I don't know why you think I can rationalize doing it to other humans too. I don't need you to tell me what I believe. I believe that it is okay to destroy clones only. Okay? I can rationalize the executions of mass murderers (such as...

    Abortion vs. Contraception

    No, it doesn't. It doesn't hurt or "demean" any of us. I don't know why you think it would. It'd be nice if you would EXPLAIN your point instead of just stubbornly repeating the same thing over and over. How are we demeaned? By possibly finding treatments for cancer? By spending money on...
