Letter: The only honorable option

This letter is a counterbalance to the Aug 28-30 letters bashing the Republican Party; although I am not a Republican.

In their new platform adopted in Denver, the Democratic Party states they strongly and unequivocally support Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and they oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.

This plank was now made even more radical when they deleted the word "rare" from Clinton's original goal which was to make abortion "safe, legal and rare." That word "rare" irritated pro-abortion feminists because it suggests that maybe the act of dismembering little babies is something despicable instead of honorable; especially since the DFL is now asking us taxpayers to pay for it.

Planned Parenthood will reap even more billions as taxpayers pay for birth control pills and pornographic sex-ed courses for kids, thereby contributing to increasing abortions as promiscuity increases.

Is your conscience opposed to abortion, and the war, and big government, and the huge deficit? (Environment has become a non-issue since the oceans and sun surface activity are pushing us into global cooling; global warmers will have to dredge up some other panic attack.) Then, your only honorable option is to vote Constitution Party.

Principles of the Constitution Party:

Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death.

Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual.

Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted.

Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden.

Constitution: the Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers.

States' rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government is reserved for the state and local jurisdictions.

American sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.
