Pro Life Politics

A couple of email recipients asked me about Presidential recommendations I make, and reminded me to tell all of you that Marco Rubio is 100% prolife with no exceptions for rape and incest, and he deserves respect for that and would be a Pro-Life friend in the White House.

First I see Cruz's hated by Washington (everyone) as a good thing, especially in light of what I see as most Senators are by nature blowhards and posers (Constitutionally they are supposed to be the Brakes to the Steering Wheel of the House of Reps and the Gas Pedal of the Presidency - so not necessarily a bad thing to just pose), and part of this is that Senators should be stopping the runaway growth of Government and debt. Obviously they have not.

Washington insiders cannot stand Cruz because he does not do what they do; he is not one of them. Cruz also went into Iowa, a Corn growing State where the Republican Governor told Iowans not to vote for him, where connected people like the Governors son have a vested interest in promoting the 10% Ethanol mandate in gasoline (because he's a lobbyist for that), and Cruz, unlike all other Republican candidates before him, stood his ground on his opposition to Government incentives. If you want a government that does not run a Nanny state and tell us everything we can and cannot do (think telling Nuns they must pay for birth control and abortifacients) then you need a leader against all mandates and government incentives, not just the ones you do not benefit from.

Cruz also demonstrated that this 10% mandate, in addition to some EPA regulations, has actually caused a ceiling of 10% Ethanol. There are cars that can burn 30-50% Ethanol, available in S.America but not US. So Iowans may actually be losing growth in the Ethanol market because of this ceiling, a classic case of the Reaganism about Washington..." If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” A less over-regulated industry would actually be growing Ethanol, and possibly Methanol based cars and gas stations.

Rubio is my second choice, I just have a little fear that he may be pulled into the Good old Country club Republican network by a FundRaiser named Paul Singer who supports him instead of Bush. Singer supports same-sex marriage. So I'm a little nervous that Rubio could get co-opted. My very last choice would be Christie. Hope this helps...

Of course no Catholic should vote for Hillary, since she is 100% NARAL – Watch Hillary Clinton Campaign Video which shows Smiling Babies as Woman Says “I Believe in” Abortion

Speaker of the Massachusetts House Bob DeLeo really wants to ram the Transgender Bathroom Bill through Beacon Hill right now. In fact, he is planning to poll state representatives THIS WEEK about whether they will vote for the Bathroom Bill. Why the urgency? Big Business is putting a lot of pressure on our local government to sacrifice our rights to privacy and safety at the feet of their corporate political agendas. The transgender lobbying organization “Freedom Massachusetts” is backed by dozens of insurance companies, law firms, big banks and San Francisco tech companies trying to force their values on all of us. Below are just a few of these corporate elites pushing the Bathroom Bill:

Which candidates are Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage and Pro-Family? Carly Fiorina was the only Candidate at the March for Life. Ted Cruz has signed the National Organization for Marriage Presidential Marriage Pledge and Cruz has also authorized a proposed constitutional amendment preserving the rights of stated to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman and also co-sponsored federal legislation, the First Amendment Defense Act, to protect governmental punishment of citizens who profess their beliefs. Donald Trump does not support a constitutional amendment to restore marriage to our laws and had publicly abandoned the fight for marriage, tell MSNBC that the illegitimate Supreme Court ruling redefining marriage “is the law of the land.”
