Will The Right’s Next Pro-Life President Please Stand Up?
Politicians either don’t have opinions on the most important issues or they don’t possess the courage to express them. Either way, they’re in the wrong profession.
No one says what they want to say, they only say what polls will give them permission to say. It’s like high school student council. They don’t lead the people towards the Truth, which is what you want from your leaders, instead they follow the popular whim of public opinion which is led by the prevailing cultural winds. There is nothing dignified about democracy.
Trump recently posted on social media:
It wasn’t my fault that the Republicans didn’t live up to expectations in the MidTerms. I was 233-20! It was the “abortion issue,” poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of Rape, Incest, or Life of the Mother, that lost large numbers of Voters. Also, the people that pushed so hard, for decades, against abortion, got their wish from the U.S. Supreme Court, & just plain disappeared, not to be seen again. Plus, Mitch stupid $’s!
Here it appears the Right’s former pro-life hero and the “greatest pro-life president we’ve ever had” thinks the “abortion issue” was an inconvenient problem that cost us the election (those pesky babies)…and especially inconvenient were those who dared to double down on their coherent commitment toward protecting unborn human life, insisting on no exceptions (no example of whom personally comes to mind.)
What’s interesting though is that socially moderate candidate Dr. Oz and absentee father Hershel Walker (who allegedly paid for abortions) did not win their respective races.
So, can Trump’s theory be true? I believe the reason we did not see the results we should have seen is because we did not run our best. And “our best” that we did run (e.g., J.D. Vance) were unwilling to go to the mat over abortion, and instead played a game of extremist hot potato with the opposing Democrat.
