SOPA and PIPA
At this point, I imagine anyone with Internet access has heard of SOPA and PIPA. I found last Wednesday’s online protest quite enjoyable. I love political activism; I love seeing a people stand up to Washington and the large companies who try to purchase power over us*; and I hope this bill goes down because it will do little concerning piracy but could change the Internet as we know it.

Promise: I’ll Give Other Candidates a Chance
Yes, I’ve already voiced my support for a congressman from Texas, but I’m interested in a conservative victory in 2012. I won’t compromise much for this victory, but I’m certainly willing to change who I support. (I guess you could say I’m less loyal to Ron Paul than I am to many of the principles he vehemently advocates.)
Thus, as Rick Perry declares his candidacy yesterday, I’m now taking a serious look at him. Maybe he’s the best candidate for a conservative victory. [Read the full post.]
- I will do my best not to allow my blog to be entirely political for the next two years (election season). That said, I love politics and think the issues are super important, so I will certainly not remain silent on these issues.
- This focuses on Romney and the prolife issue, but what I want you to see are the implications on his character and/or his intelligence.
Concerning the pro-life issue, Romney is unreliable at best (and a lying fake at worst).
In this 2002 video he is accused of flip-flopping. He clearly declares his *policy* (not personal) position to be identical to that of this very pro-choice opponent.
He has since changed his policy position (for the 2008 race)…The man accused of flip-flopping in 2002 flip-flopped again!
If he were the only remotely decent candidate, then sure, maybe consider him. But there are several others in the field who hold decent policy positions, and are actually reliable!
Life Begins at Conception. Good. Defend It!
From 2007, “I believe from a political perspective that life begins at conception.”
Later in the same interview, “I was always personally opposed to abortion, as I think almost everyone in this nation is. And the question for me was, what is the role of government? And it was quite theoretical and philosophical to consider what the role of government should be in this regard, and I felt that the Supreme Court had spoken and that government shouldn’t be involved and let people make their own decision.”
So life begins at conception…but the government should just allow people to choose whether or not to murder their children? Now, to be charitable he probably doesn’t realize that his position clearly acknowledges abortion as murder and then protects that right to murder…but at best he isn’t bright, and I’d prefer a bright president if possible!
I like to be right, so please help me!
I don’t presume to always be logically correct or to always have all interesting information. So if you think I’m using information incorrectly or haven’t considered some additional info, please let me know. Write a comment or shoot me an email.
I’m super opinionated…but I’m super open-minded too. You can also disagree with these statements : )
