Paul is up 57% but only 0.3% of precincts have reported. I think he will prevail, but to call the state for him with less than one percent of precincts reporting is a bit premature.

Rand Paul believes that women should be compelled to carry their rapist's baby. That would have been a deal-breaker for me. Yay for gun rights, boo for women's rights.

This is such a red herring. Less than 1% of rapes cause pregnancy because of the trauma involved...and another thing...did you actually hear him say this? Or are you just saying this because he's labeled "pro life". There are many pro lifers who would allow an abortion in cases of rape...

It's even more of a red herring. Women have a constitutionally protected right to choose in this country. It's a done deal, and there's not very much politicians can do about it. So why worry about what a given politician's views are on this subject?

Thankfully, women's rights are far less tenuous than gun rights. We can use his energy directed at those issues good for us while he burns cycles in guaranteed-DOA issues like access to abortion. Keeping his base on board and motivated to turn out means saying things he might not believe himself (I'm not arguing that he doesn't believe in restricting abortion, just that KY politics requires certain elements that Bay Area CA might or absolutely does not).

ETA: Reciprocity, BATFE cleanup - I'm looking at you...

Yeah. Their right to choose to murder. I would like to be able to choose government sanctioned murder of someone that depended on me for their life too...(not)

More 'life begins at conception' idiocy.

Next thing we're gonna have to have oncologists give funerals for teratomas,
and the prolifers will wanna save the contents of condoms too.

As far as "woot, Rand Paul won' in relation to gun rights I don't anticipate anyone from Kentucky voting antigun, so there was really no net change.

Over 1100 in office already. Be interesting to see how the numbers look after this election, though, since the TEA party stuff seems to be siphoning off votes that would go towards Libertarians.

Good to hear Rand Paul is well positioned to win this race. I'm sure he'll do a fine job in Congress.

You do realize he is, by his actions a Libertarian? He decided to go the R route to help with not splitting votes. He is also backed by the TEA party(or at least one of them..;) )

I kinda liked the Tea Party because it supposedly stood for small government with a strong libertarian streak. But their candidates Paul, Miller, Angle, O'Donnell, Buck turned out to be theocrats who want the government involved in social issues and enforcing their religious beliefs on others. That;s just trading one big government for another. Wot happened?:confused:

WOW.

I'll try to keep this short as possible because I realize that this is off topic even though I wasn't the one to bring it up...

I thought we liked to keep things civil here. Could you kindly refer to where I said CONCEPTION in my quote? No? That's probably because it's not there. This is what I was getting at when I asked if people were assuming Paul wanted raped women to carry their rapists' babies just because he is "Pro Life".

I never said life begins at conception. But I disagree with most states' abortion laws IN THEIR CURRENT FORM. There is an "in between" you know. A lot happens with that "fetus" between conception and when "it" is born. I have no problem with abortion at conception or shortly thereafter. But at about eight weeks that "clump of cells" has a heartbeat. My wife used to work with preemie babies in the hospital and guess what. many of them survive to be fairly normal after only 22-24 weeks of gestation. All they need is a little help. Are you going to compare one of them to a teratoma or the contents of a condom? Have you ever heard of the silent scream? Ever seen an abortion video? Seen how the "fetus" screams in pain and attempts to move away from the instruments as they slice "its" body into pieces? They feel pain, and react to the instruments used in the abortion long before the limit of gestation most states allow. And then there's partial birth abortion, in which a fully viable "fetus" is brought down into the birth canal so that the doctor can puncture "its" head and suck out "its" brain while "it" is still alive. Or perhaps you agree with our president who says that already born and perfectly normal babies should be killed if they survived an abortion attempt? See? it isn't just "life at conception" or nothing. There are degrees.

Please attempt to refrain from attacking me as believing in "idiocy" until you are at least sure you truly understand my position on something.

I don't see that for Paul though I understand your frustration with O'Donnell and Angle. That said, I'll take some social conservative nonsense if the candidate is fiscally and Constitutionally conservative over a frickin' Progressive/Socialist every time.
