The Only Way to Stop Trump

March 12, 2016

It’s probably too late for Republicans to keep Donald Trump from getting the Republican presidential nomination.  There is a  remote possibility that Gov. John R. Kasich could defeat Trump if Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz dropped out and threw their support to Kasich.

Neither Rubio nor Cruz has any chance of winning the nomination.  They appeal to only a portion of Republicans with little chance of appealing to those Republicans who don’t call the selves “conservatives”.  Many of the people who are voting for Trump are only doing so because  they don’t want Cruz or Rubio and Trump is the only other Republican with a chance to win the nomination.

If Cruz and Rubio drop out the voters who are supporting Trump as the least of the three “evils” might switch to Kasich    If there are enough Republicans in this category, Kasich might be able to compete with Trump.

Perhaps Rubio and Cruz could be bought off with promises of positions in a Kasich administration.  Rubio is a plausible vice presidential running mate.  Cruz could be offered the Attorney General position
with a secret promise of a Supreme Court nomination late in the administration.

Powerful Women Have Babies – Powerless Women Get Abortions

March 11, 2016

Contrary to the claim of abortion advocates, abortions don’t empower women.  Abortions disempower women.

Humans are the most powerful creatures on earth.   The most powerful humans are the ones who can make new humans.   A pregnant woman is demonstrating her  power to make a human being.  An abortion stops that power from continuing.

Some people think they are being powerful when they kill others or destroy property.   However,  those actions don’t require much power.  It doesn’t take much power to pull a trigger or throw a rock through a window.  The real power is making [giving birth to] the person who is killed or making or installing a window.

It takes power to finish a job.  Quitting doesn’t require any power, but may be an admission that the person lacks the necessary power to complete the task.

People often resort to violence when they lack the mental “power”, or ability, to deal with personal conflicts.   If their world starts to collapse, they start shooting people.  Women who choose abortions are indicating they lack the mental strength or power to continue a pregnancy.  They are saying they are powerless rather than powerful.
