Some issues disqualify a political candidate from consideration.
If a man is willing to leave the most innocent of his people to be abused, how can we trust him with our healthcare? Our national defense? Our economy? Our lives?
Are you a truth seeker? This video is graphic but if you truly want to be the informed, intelligent, brave, truth-telling voter that you fancy yourself... then watch it anyway. It is irresponsible to cast a vote if you have not taken every pain to understand the issue that holds lives in the balance. If you intend to vote for a candidate who advocates for abortion, it is particularly important that you see what abortion is... and take responsibility for that choice.
And to those of you who refuse to vote for anyone because Romney is not pro-life enough for you... staying home doesn't free you from the moral responsibility to stand against evil.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
"It is not enough in a situation of trust in the commonwealth, that a man means well to his country; it is not enough that in his single person he never did an evil act, but always voted according to his conscience, and even harangued against every design which he apprehended to be prejudicial to the interests of his country. This innoxious and ineffectual character, that seems formed upon a plan of apology and disculpation, falls miserably short of the mark of public duty. That duty demands and requires that what is right should not only be made known, but made prevalent; that what is evil should not only be detected, but defeated. When the public man omits to put himself in a situation of doing his duty with effect it is an omission that frustrates the purposes of his trust almost as much as if he had formally betrayed it. It is surely no very rational account of a man's life, that he has always acted right but has taken special care to act in such a manner that his endeavours could not possibly be productive of any consequence."
