Rather Consertvatives AND Libertarians. I heard through the grapevine
that there was a thread on Pro-life issues going around some
RLCNYCers and I want to give my 2 cents since I was out of the loop.
I feel strongly that we need the unity of Conservatives, Republicans
and libertarians in RLC and we have to take on these tough issues and
hash them out in order to find common ground. Some religious
conservatives that I know are the strongest on free market economic
principles and as the addage goes, without conservatives we're
souless and without libertarians we're dreamers.
We better wake up and smell the coffee since pretty soon we'll all
have to deal with Hillary who is honing in on a centrist position
regarding Life and is wooing religious conservatives big time.
As Raquel, staunchly Pro-Life and I, staunchly Pro-choice have
debated these Life issues and found common ground in areas of
abstention education, ban on partial-birth abortions, parental
notification, etc. And on Gay issue, support for Log Cabin
Republicans, Civil Union bills etc. We need to entertain these issues
to be able to effectively unite and fight for our core economic
values as a team.
With Mitchell's prominent samaurai sword collection, maybe we ought
to rethink our next meeting place!!
