Of course Roe V. Wade was wrongly decided but it has nothing to do with the right to life because even that is regulated at the state level. With few exceptions, murder is a state matter, not a federal matter. If New Jersey were to insanely decide through its constitutional process to make murder a misdemeanor, it would be fully within its rights to do so.
Of course that would never happen and if it did you would see quite the exodus from New Jersey.
The BoR says the government can’t deprive a person of his life without due process. It DOESN’T say the government has to affirmatively protect life. That’s a significant difference.
All of which has little to do with homosexual “marriage.” States can clearly do whatever the hell they want to do in that regard. The real danger, though is that the SC - like it did in Roe V. Wade - summons up “emanations” and “pnumbras” to conjure a universal right for faggots to marry each other that states get no say over.
Thank you, it’s can be hard to admit you were wrong.
I don’t remember fighting with you in particular but I probably did, I was hard anti-Newt.
Most Newts on here were inexplicably still supporting him (and bashing Santorum as a “stalking horse for Romney”) after he was no longer viable coming in 4th in most primaries. Santorum lost several key primaries thanks to Newt voters. Epic fail. Newt was done after attacking Romney from the left as an evil millionaire and getting spanked in Florida. If he hadn’t done that he may have even won. The single dumbest move of the 2012 campaign and that’s saying a lot.
Not that Santorum was great (he wasn’t, he had numerous serious flaws) but he was better than Newt and the one that was actually in second place, the only one that could have stopped Glove from getting the nomination, period. Anyone who thought otherwise failed 2nd grade math.
When I pointed this out at the time I was called a Romney plant by the Newtbots.
