Conrad, I don’t doubt that Casey would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade & never argued otherwise; but, so would Santorum. & Santorum also opposes the morning after pill, about which Casey said (in re: should it be sold Over the Counter):
"Yes, I'm in favor…I think we've got to make it widely available, and I think that's one of the ways we reach common ground on the very tough issue of abortion: emergency contraception can reduce the number of abortions and unwanted pregnancies. That's what we should emphasize."
Again, *given my choices* of the two viable candidates, I’m going to go with Casey. Especially when Mr. Crazypants doesn't even like birth control, & has said that states should have the right to ban a woman's access to birth control.
Conrad, yes, I realize that Santorum thinks Casey’s idea of sending more troops into Iraq is insane. Just as I’m sure you realize that Santorum thinks we should continue following Bush’s plan & "stay the course" in Iraq indefinitely. When asked about U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq:
“I don't think you ask that question,” he said. “I know that's the question everybody wants to ask. But I don't think anyone would ask that question in 1944, "Gee, how long are we going to be in Europe?' We're going to be in Europe until we win,” Santorum said.
Santorum thinks we should stay in Iraq “until we win.” Do you think that he really believes that this will be accomplished without sending any more troops into Iraq?
Conrad, you say: “Hitler is actually a choice for the one who would BLINDLY act in such a foolish way. Casey's choice would only pull us closer to the worst possible thing for this world.”
Luckily, Casey would not be the sole decider of the direction of the war. His victory, however, could help the Democrats take back the Senate – can we not agree that a Democrat-led Senate is preferable to a Republican-led Senate in re: ending the war, women’s issues, domestic issues, etc.?
happy election day,
