Flip-flopping, Republican style
Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - By Judie Brown

It is always nice to see pro-life leaders come out of the woodwork to expose the real hypocrisy that is so prevalent among Republicans. The recent filibuster hoax is one such event. The press called it a "deal reached to avert a showdown," but I call it the greatest betrayal of principle in history. The threat of filibuster is not about anything other than abortion! And the fact that some Republican senators would join with the likes of Democratic Sen. Harry Reid says a whole lot about real courage versus politics as usual. Can't anyone recall that Sen. Teddy Kennedy once defended the right to filibuster? Or is it a right in a U.S. Senate that avoids, evades and flat out ignores the fate of more than four thousand American preborn citizens daily?

Thank you for the very kind compliment, but my job, as I see it, is to witness to God's truth in the ways that best utilize the minimal gifts I have. Running for the presidency is not among those things I believe are important in the overall scheme of restoring the culture of life.

I more or less agree with the Constitution Party?s platform, particularly their stand on abortion. However, I have second thoughts about voting for their 2004 presidential candidate, Michael Peroutka. Will you please run for president in 2008, if there is no better choice than this?

Thanks, Dan and Ken, for the reminders about the Constitution Party. My thoughts were on the major parties when I wrote that comment.

I read what you said about the recent passage, by the Republican majority, of the embryonic stem cell bill. I think what you said was great and I really feel that it is time that the pro-life community woke up from the coma it is has been in regarding the Republican Party. The only thing that you said, which I take exception to, is that "there is no such thing as a genuinely pro-life political party in the United States." If you are referring to the one party system in this country masquerading as the Democratic and Republican Parties, then I agree with you 100 percent. But there is a political party in this country which is 100 percent pro-life: the Constitution Party. It is high time that the pro-life community started supporting this party for a true pro-life agenda to succeed in this country.

I gleaned this quoted from AgapePress: "Perhaps now, Brown adds, it will finally dawn on the entire pro-life community that there is no such thing as a genuinely pro-life political party in America." I believe there is a pro-life political party, that party is the Constitution Party. Please check them out.
