“You know, when are we going to learn that the Republicans have a stronger base. Seriously. Not hard to figure out. Democrats, as has been suggested, tend to be fickle. Many of them will say one thing but vote completely different on election day. The last two elections shouldn't have been as "tight" as they were if the Dems really had their act together. It's disconcerting to say the least.
You are kidding yourselves if you think higher number of registrants will lead to a win.”

“They sure do have a stronger base. It's called the mainstream media, and they pay for these rigged polls. Its in the media's interest to have a horse race. What a surprise -- they've given us one, even if it's only on paper.”

“You got it right....PARENTS SHOULD DO THE TALK and GUIDANCE. No amount of sex education in schools can replace the "sit-down" and "tough love" stance your mother offered. She held you accountable and responsible for your actions. Is that too much to ask for people who choose to bear children.
Last time I checked, there are failure rates to all sorts of birth controls, so the issue has got to be more than just availability and access to these methods.
I have a feeling your choices/decisions not to "get into trouble" had more to do with constant parental presence, than sexual education in schools. Ironically, it is thanks to 'conservative' parents that you turned out as fine as you did.”
