You won’t see me refute the douchebaggery on the part of the Donald (though I suspect we would disagree on the nature of said baggery), but I’d be curious if you could explain anything similar for Pence. Also, are you advocating that any people of religious beliefs shouldn’t run for office? Or just Pence, and if so, why?Let’s not forget that a President Pence might well be even worse than Trump. All the douchebaggery of the latter combined with the religious delusions of the former... it’s not a pretty picture.
Can you please remind me to get back to you on this if I forget? I’m just quite busy at the moment.You won’t see me refute the douchebaggery on the part of the Donald (though I suspect we would disagree on the nature of said baggery), but I’d be curious if you could explain anything similar for Pence.

That's sort of true. Though it is also easy to mistake few "loud" people for the opinion of a whole party. And that 's a result of the 2 Party system. You could easily split dems and reps into 3 Parties so that at the end everyone get's to vote for a party (and candidates) that they feel represented.[...] even among the coastal elites their message doesn't resonate as much as they think.
While the right certainly has plenty of crazy cooks, the platforms they run on (including Trump btw) are far more centrist than what the Democrats have been doing. There is also the fact that Reps have more or less left social issues alone (abortion being the only one they still fight) and concentrated on more economic issues* while Dems are a lot more concerned with social issues and have nearly no platform for addressing the economy.**By the way, the democrats shifting left is a symptom of how far right they have been dragged over the last 40 years or so. It only seems extreme because you are used to seeing only moderate democrats, or centrists.
Isn't that like half the judges in the US?get a judgeship - despite not being qualified for the job.
Blanket, or depending on clear-cut medical criteria?NY and VA have pushed for more openly allowing third trimester abortions - yes, that's up to 9 months.
Our resident (pun intended) doctor has already addressed it, there is no medical reason for a third trimester abortion.Blanket, or depending on clear-cut medical criteria?
EDIT: Read up on NY, as the VA law is still under discussion - it is about cases where the mother's life is at risk and/or the fetus will not be viable, so it's either to save the mother's life (which makes sense) or to spare her from having to deliver a child just to watch it die (which, again, makes sense). I fail to see the "killing babies at 9 months".
