Screamers for Pro-Life
When you think of the type of person who offers unity and other galvanizing subjects you can't help but think of Howard Dean. His sincere attitude and compassion towards others makes him the ideal figure-head for any political agenda. Oh wait, I was thinking of Ronald Reagan.
Let's hit a couple key points from Dean's ideas to help the DNC reel in Pro-Lifers:
"I think we need to talk about this issue differently,'' Dean said. "The Republicans have painted us as a pro-abortion party. I don't know anybody in America who is pro-abortion."
You ARE Pro-Abortion! The reason you have been painted as a pro-abortion party is, well uh, you ARE a pro-abortion party. You can label it as womens' rights but if you want to continue to allow abortions, that makes you pro-abortion. Sorry.
"I think that we must be absolutely firm in being the party of individual freedom and personal freedom, which means that in the end the government doesn't get to decide, we do."
You ARE the government! Well, at least you'd like to be. Great way to lasso in those fence sitters, Deanie-Boy. Vote whatever way your heart tells you but we're not stupid. You're not one of us; you ARE government.
"...we believe a woman has a right to make up their own mind and they believe [House Majority Leader] Tom DeLay should make it up and Rick Santorum should make it up for them."
If you really feel this way, why can't my girlfriend have an abortion the day before she's due? Isn't it her decision? Oh I see, you want limits but different limits than they do. You hypocrite.
"We do have to have a big tent. I do think we need to welcome pro-life Democrats into this party."
I think you need to do something. I think Democrats have felt more like non-Republicans for a really long time. I think you need to set finite distinctions that lay out explicitly what you support and don't rather than being the Catch-All party. But what I do know.
Roe v. Wade
Stem Cell Fight!
Bush the hypocrite
