Alright, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that most of y'all posting here care about political decisions pertaining to abortion. (Rights, restrictions, preventive planning).
A lower-profile Democratic Presidential candidate announced the other day that he would use abortion-rights as a litmus test for selecting Supreme Court Justices if her were elected. Now, even though he's on the same side of the road that I am (protecting abortion rights) I still think that's nuts.
What do you all think about single-issue voting? Does the issue of abortion blot all others out when it comes to politics? Or is it just another piece of the puzzle?
Abortion rights are important to me, but single-issue voting just skeeves me out, and hearing people say things this extremely gives me bad feelings. That may be because I hate being reminded we are in such a bad place, or because I don't like public figures that bow to the need for media soundbyte extremism. It's just a bad thing. Anyhow, I don't respect the guy for pulling a publicity stunt like that. I have never heard of him before, and I know nothing else about him, but my first impression ain't good.
