Is this what the average Dem supports?

Smokin' Joe at it again... and again... and again...

To answer your question: Is this what the average Dem supports? My answer is "Yes".
If Democrats historically are on the side of the weak and defenseless and disfranchised, then they SHOULD be on the side of the unborn.
What could be more powerless and defenseless than an unborn child? It makes perfect sense.
We need many many more pro-lifers in the Democratic party. As far as Joe Lieberman, I don't know. He is one Democrat who has finally seen the light on other issues, so I guess this makes sense.
Let's take it a step further and denounce NARAL and Personal PAC, groups who deny the natural bond between woman and unborn child and who legitimize homicide. I know, I know- people will say that it is not the role of government to prevent homicide. And we'll hear the same old BS of rape and incest even though it's exceedingly rare- my priest said that in his 30 years of priesthood, he has only known of one case where this was the issue. Like you say, Inside Dope, one gets tired of hearing the same old crap.
But I guess as long as NARAL and Personal PAC control the purse strings, there won't be any pro-life Democrats stepping up to the plate anytime soon.
And as far as Democrats who change their position, I remind readers that there are some politcians like Mike Boland who used to be pro-Life.. but once he runs for office and can get money from pro-Abortion PACS, PRESTO! He suddenly changes his position and becomes pro-Abortion.

Nico, if you're a single issue voter and you are firmly in support of the Republican and fundementalist stance on abortion, then yes... I guess it's what your sort of Dem would support.

But I suggest that Lieberman's views are no longer within the confines of Democratic values of personal choice and separation of church and state, as well as a whole host of other issues.

Nico,

Judging by your rhetoric I'm guessing you're a republican so it's not surprising you actually think Lieberman is in the mainstream of his party. I'll spare you any counter-arguements but I will say citing a priest for pregnancy-caused-by-rape statistics has to be one of the most idiotic things I've read this week. Thanks for the chuckle.

The whole abortion issue aside, I don't see how states can legally allow political messages to be printed on license plates. I'd go further and say there shouldn't be any special plates for people, reguardless of where you're an alum, what your profession is, or your status was in the military. License plates are not bumper stickers and states have enough red tape as is.

If he's good enough for Al Gore, then he's good enough for you, too.

Ah but Nico, Lieberman WASN'T good enough for Al Gore, in my opinion. Joseph I. didn't serve Gore or the ticket well at all in my estimation.
