I'm so sick of politics, but it seems like the rallying cry for Republicans is always to end abortions and stop gay marriage. Why do you care so much what I do with my own body and with my life? If you don't want an abortion, don't get one! If your a man and don't want to marry another man, than don't, but stop telling me what I can and cannot do with my own life!!! You may all be using your religious views as the basis for your beliefs and willingness to take away the personal rights of every individual in the US, but you need to remember, America is a melting pot of DIFFERING religions ethnicity's, and points of view. That is why our founding fathers came here, to start a new and better country and way of life. Why are you so willing to throw that away???

You don't get it do you? ALL governments. ALL leaders. ALL presidents/kings are about control. How can you be so blind?

We WANT someone to tell us what to do, someone to reassure us that we will be ok. Someone to make decisions for us.

That is why we are slaves.

Putting aside the fact that the OP is gay and has skin in the game, the reality is that BOTH major parties wish to deprive us of freedom in different ways. Neither has any desire or intention to maximize freedom in any way, so they divide up reality and regulate their half of it.

The Republicans try to tell people what to do with their bodies, and the Democrats try to tell people what to do with their lives - as in business, or building, or where they can live or what weapons to own and carry.

They are both truly bullshit, and lately, both parties have been encroaching each others' turf and rallying for greater and greater regulation of everyone's lives. If this continues, you'll have to get a permit to breathe - renewable daily, and also require a hearing a permit to cease breathing. Failure to comply will be punished, I'm sure.

I'll give 5 stars for importance of this subject. The country needs to be freed from it's stranglers. ANY rule or regulation that "protects" someone from themselves, or their own choices, is immoral under the constitution, and possibly illegal. It's just wrong. People have a right to try things and if that leads to damage and death, they're responsible. We, a a country, state, or local, are NOT.

Let people be people, as long as they leave each other alone. Societal "guilt" over not interfering is not justification to interfere.

I agree with what you are saying, that w should be free to do as we please. However, the democrats are taking more and more of our rights away on a daily basis.

Repub candidates have to preach this to keep the christian vote. Other than abortion and gay marriage, there is no other rights they want to take away.

And I have mixed feelings about abortion. I see why people dont want it. killing babies and all. I just dont understand how it has become a normal birth control instead of a dirty dark secret you keep forever.

I completely agree with what you are saying. It is getting ridiculous, but people need to care enough to force change. This two party BS isn't working anymore. They spend so much money that I'm sure we are missing out on people who would be a much more effective president simply because they can't afford to run.
But, for me, it is also an issue of values and foresight. I personally would not, and have not, had an abortion, however, I don't believe it is anyone's right to tell me what is morally acceptable for my own body. I just think it is utter hypocrisy because on one hand, the Republicans want to ban abortions, and on the other they want to cut social services for the poor. How can you force some teenager to have a baby and then say sorry, sucks to be you and you will now be living a life of poverty and so will your child. If they want to mandate every conceived child be born, then they should also be forced to provide that child with a decent life. But guess what? We can't afford that nor should we, so what's the alternative?

"techincally" that is true in terms of federal dollars. however federal dollars do still go to institutions that provide abortions.

yes the money isnt supposed to go towards the abortions but for other services but i think we can all agree that the federal dollars helps keep these places open.
