Will you vote for her?

The slippery slope is here. Pro-choice or eugenics?
While I'm a little surprised that it is happening so quickly, it was only a matter of time before these stories start to pop up and become the norm. ONly a matter of time before churches are forced to marry gays.

I can't say much more than to pose the question re: how you'd feel about it.

Guy is a worm. I agree with a lot of what he said, but he's got an agenda. He's not a patriot, and I don't think I would consider him a traitor. But he definitely went about things the WRONG way.
