Planned Parenthood was the only place in the city where she could go for her yearly check-ups and to get her birth control. I offered CASH MONEY UP FRONT to every OB/GYN in town to see my wife and no one would see her. Not even for $100 bills up front. If it weren't for them, she'd never have gotten the medical attention she needed for some health issues she was having. Thank God the liberals kept the conservatives from shutting that one down...
I try not to say I fall on either side of the line. I am in agreement with you that I fall liberal on several issues. Gay marriage, planned parenthood and the like. But I am a NRA member, I love my guns, I think more people need to help themselves rather than rely on welfare and other programs. But I have several friends that fall WAY
liberal until you get to the gun issue. They enjoy the sport most would not hunt with me, but if I have an open range day you can bet they will show up and make something go bang. I think it is because we were raised in rural middle america that most of us understand guns.
My friends and I have been a generation raised on the internet. So I believe that we were exposed to a larger more diverse population, that we considered also our peers. IMHO population is our #1 problem. If you look at most problems in America right now it comes down to that. Gay marriage, birth control, and abortion is absolutely fine with me. It is a way for population to be controlled. Also if the right wingers look at it like I did, then those left wingers that exercise their gay marriage, birth control, and abortion then will be raising less left wingers to think like they do. Just saying
