Rand Paul is fighting in the Senate to give full constitutional rights to fertilized eggs. Yet at the same time, he’s going to filibuster any gun legislation Harry Reid brings to the Senate floor, legislation that might save the lives of, you know, actual already-born children like those killed in Newtown.
Marco Rubio, fearing that he might be out-maneuvered for 2016, just jumped on the filibuster bandwagon with Paul, along with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.
North Dakota is going to have a “personhood amendment” on its ballot in 2014.
You know, the provision that says a fertilized egg has the same constitutional rights you and I have. The thing that would ban not only all abortions (rape, incest, life of the mother), but also hormonal birth control and in vitro fertilization.
The provision that those wild and crazy leftist radicals in Mississippi defeated.
Having measures like this on the ballot will generate lots of attention beyond North Dakota in 2014 and affect other races, just as ignorant extremists like Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin tainted the GOP beyond their own losing races and hurt the party across the board, including Mitt.
