Abortion Questions For Both Libs and Conservatives

Libs: are you against a woman using drugs during her pregnancy? If so, then why is it okay for a woman to have an abortion because it is her own body and her own choice, but not use drugs?

Conservatives: (that believe that abortion is okay) Why is it that most conservatives who believe that Roe v. Wade should stand as it is, LOVE Scalia? They love Scalia so much so that they would LOVE to have all 9 Justices share his philosophy. I find it strange every time a non-social conservative expresses love for Scalia because now adays, most of the issues before the court are social issues. If you want Roe v. Wade to stand, or don't care about homosexuals marrying then why would you LOVE Scalia? And why would you want more of him on the Supreme Court? This doesn't make sense to me.

Roe v. Wade is the case everyone is fighting for. If there were more Scalia's on the court it might be in jeopardy. Is this really such a bad thing though? Even if you are pro-abortion.... just because the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade that doesn't make abortion illegal. I don't think people understand this. It just means that the legislature - the people that should have been in charge of this in the first place - will have to make rules. OH NO! The court SHOULD NEVER have made a decision like this, this is a political question, and it should have been in the hands of the legislature from day 1.

That is my Constitutional thought of the day- Thanks!

Affirmative Action

I am sorry for the recent posts on minorities... but we are discussing this topic in Constitutional Law, so it has me thinking...

What good does affirmative action do?

The way I see it, the government/world should be colorblind. You shouldn't get a job/into college because you are black, white, hispanic, or asian. Affirmative action forces us to look at color and make distinctions between races. And minorities are for this? I thought they want to be equal? It is impossible to say that you want "equality" yet you are for affirmative action... at least the way I see it.

Why do you want to get a position that you are not qualified for? In our discussion yesterday, my professor made a point that poor blacks don't get as good of an education as whites and this is why affirmative action is necessary - because their test scores are not as high as whites and therefore they won't get into graduate schools such as law school/medical school. Well, it seems obvious to me that the remedy should not take place at the college, job, or graduate school level. I understand that our education system needs a mega face lift.. but people that are not qualified to get into these schools or hold certain jobs are getting in because of their skin color. Some say: they might not be qualified but it adds diversity. I am sorry... but I have not experienced ONE benefit of having a "diverse" school. Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, and Whites don't contribute enough to my classroom for a "diverse" education. The professors spend the majority of the time lecturing and if a student is being called on they are discussing a case from our assigned reading... not some life changing experience that is going to benefit us all.

Sorry to make this short... but I have to get to class!

I have a question. And I am being serious when I ask this question.... Why are minorities Liberal?

Lets start off with gays. Democrats ARE NOT for gay marriage (FYI). So why be liberal? Is it because they see conservatives as bible huggers? This doesn't make sense to me. I can see if you are more liberal in other areas... but a lot of gays aren't. The Democrats are doing nothing for gay marriage... they are not pushing for it in any way shape or form. I think it is odd how minority groups automatically side with the liberals just because it is "what they are supposed to do". One might say that it is because Republicans are Christian and view homosexuality as immoral. This is true, but most Democrats view homosexuality as immoral as well - there really is no difference here. Someone explain!

Now what about African Americans? I could go on and on about this forever... but I have to make it short because I have to study. WHY IN THE WORLD ARE BLACKS LIBERAL? Socially they are more conservative, and fiscally they are liberal. What have the liberals fiscally done for the black community in the last 50 years? Basically they have kept them poor and dependent on the government. Why is this acceptable for African Americans? Liberals band aid the issue by trying to give them the smallest amount of money possible to get them by. While conservative look in the future and try to do what is best down the road - AKA: giving them a free education and trying to get them placed in jobs. If you don't believe that politics plays a HUGE role in this then you are mistaken! Liberals aren't the only ones at fault here... liberals like the fact that these people are poor because they are their voting base (and even if they don't get out and vote... at least they are not voting conservative). Everyone knows if the poor would get educated and start making money that they would vote Republican! Conservatives on the other hand have gotten lazy and basically given up on these people. They don't vote and when they do they vote liberal - so why even bother. That shouldn't be the case... As Republicans we need to look into the future of our party and help these people realize that they don't have to settle for what the liberals have to offer them. I understand that the "Republican" way of doing things takes some hard work and effort but it will benefit them SO much more down the road.

How can this be so clear to me and almost every other conservative but yet the black community still settles for the easy band aid that the liberals offer them? I just don't get it!!!
