Convention Summary: Republicans love tax cuts. Democrats love to abort babies. Take your pick!

by Doug Lawrence

From a purely Catholic perspective, I can tell you that any real improvement in the economy of the United States, and for that matter, the world, will not happen until the gruesome and totally abominable practice of abortion comes to an end.

There’s a number of reasons for this, but the primary one is simple: Divine justice.

God is absolutely opposed to abortion. He reserves the power of life to himself, and permits humans only to procreate  We are never permitted to take an innocent life, for any reason whatsoever. If such were not the case, God would be working against himself, and that is simply not possible.

Pushing both religion and all the political demagoguery off to the side for a moment … no rational person with at least a modicum of common sense could possibly believe that a baby in the womb is anything less than fully human. And being human, from the moment of conception, the baby becomes the bearer of inalienable human rights. Rights which come from God … not man.

The scandals who resort to schemes and false rhetoric in an attempt to reclassify and redefine such a fundamental and absolutely clear matter are nothing more than selfish charlatans … out to gain whatever they can … for themselves and/or for their particular affiliated group.

When you vote for those who promote the unrestricted killing of helpless pre-born babies, you become what they already are … murdering scum of the earth. And if that’s not enough to rattle your malformed conscience, consider the fact that divine justice is both perfect and totally inescapable.

So, pro-death abortion advocates, wherever you may live … and whenever you may die … there is no escape. You will be held eternally accountable for your choices. Kind of gives the term “Pro-Choice” a whole new spin … doesn’t it?

In the best case scenario, unrepentant baby-killers will probably end up spending eternity with other baby-killers. Think about that, for a while!

Better to straighten up and fly right in the here and the now … than spend an eternity attempting to rationalize what can never be rationalized and attempting to justify what can never be justified.

Of course, the convention also demonstrated the fact that many Democrats no longer believe in God, so they’re probably betting that most of the above simply doesn’t apply.

As Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” character has been known to say, “Do ya feel lucky? Well do ya, punk?

Better to vote safe than be sorry. Vote for tax cuts … not baby-killing. The country will do better … the babies will do better … and you’ll sleep much better, too.

Eastwood: “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”

AFTER A week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.

“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”
