A Champion for Women

Hillary's historic statement in 1995 that "women's rights are human rights" still echoes worldwide. As a lawyer, advocate, First Lady, and senator, Hillary has fought for issues important to women here at home and around the world for decades. Hillary will continue her lifelong fight to ensure that all Americans are treated with respect and dignity.
Maybe that should involve having enough vag to leave your husband.

I'm liking McCain's stance saying that immigrants need to assimilate, as none of the other candidates stated that.

Nice post BTW Pete.

not everybody splits because of infidelity...especially when you're older. You don't respect anybody who stays with their partner after a crisis like that?

Infidelity is breaking the trust and if the trust is gone then the marriage is gone unless your marriage is one of convenience... In other words they stay together in the pursuit of power. Don't get me wrong, I don't like any of the top three candidates... I'd vote for none of the above...

I give them zero respect, both of them just like my main man pictured in my avatar.

The other issue I have is using her poon dog of a husband to gain popularity, which I bet is the only reason she stayed with him. She really wouldn't have gotten anywhere without him.

Yep, I am glad this thread stayed on "topic". Yep, getting the candidates positions on the issues where people can find them really helped get people focused on what matters.

Sorry Pete. My first reply was on topic though!

I personally think stances don't matter much, because all they're going to do is support the people who funded them. You can't get a bunch of money for support and not owe someone back. Not to mention, they explain their stances like they will actually have the full power to make it happen, when it really won't.

If the funding went to support the stances that they have, then great. IMO, our whole government needs to be re-structured, starting with our ludicrous legal system.

I sure can not argue any of that. Special interests are not really in the average persons best interests.

But there is so much talk about the candidates stands, especially how this one has no position or that one has that position, I thought, in the interest of fair play, and hopefully some truth, having the positions on issues handy would help in the debate.

We need a good debate in this country. But the heart and emotion has to sometimes take a back seat to the mind and the truth.

X 1,000,000 This is right on the mark for sure... Their position is fabricated and adjusted to fit what they think the people want to hear to support and vote for them. I also think that their character and moral stance is very important and on task, unfortunately I'm not it the majority... Most people listen to the media and are lead by the nose to the candidate they want to get elected...

You have a reason based on an issue to not like this candidate. Good for you. This is what I am getting at.

To a degree, I agree with you. A lot of what is said may be fabricated. But then a lot may be actual views and just becoming the president does guarantee you can act strongly on those issues the way you would like. If you could, then this would be a dictatorship not a democracy (or 2 party Republic).

Knowing what the official positions are on the issues gives the informed voter a starting point to question the candidates.

Here is a challenge, go to the site of your prefferred candidate and find one thing in his/her list of issues that you either do not agree with or do not believe he'she is really sincere about what is stated. If the latter, explain why you do not believe.

They may all be the person's views on things, but getting to actually act them out with the separate branches of government and scratching the backs of supporters is probably why they never happen.

I am very aware of the issues and their positions... I'm a conservative and always have been. I would simply like to see the constitution followed not circumvented.

X 1,000,000,000 I want him or someone with those views... No more of the mixing of views and issues... They seem to have meshed the groups into one party and then want to destroy the constitution and the people of this country for their own self interest.... That's why I don't like any of the current front runner candidates, their all evil and have the same adgenda... Their isn't a lesser evil to vote for, their all the same... That's just my opinion on the whole thing... I'll get off the box now...:tonka:
