Abortion is still murder.

Perez is a conceited a$$; he is going to be as bad as Wasserman-Schultz. He has no right to establish any party litmus tests. The Democratic voters get to choose whomever they want. Good for Michael John Gray.

Hey Pop - This is a great example of why the Democrat Party is so f'd right now. Gray can say what he wants but local candidates will be joined with Perez at the hip, as they were with Obama and Hillary.

Hey RBear - Did you really just equate the actions of a convicted mass murderer with those of an unborn child that epitomizes the word "innocent"? Really RBear? Seriously? Didn't think that one through, did you.

Pack, let's just say your ability to parse statements lacks so badly it's not worth responding beyond this. I don't have my crayons with me to break this one down for you.

This article just proves that political parties are what's wrong with our government today. I wished people would just abandon them and the stupid conventions they hold. Vote for candidates for their views, not the letter after their names.

Capital punishment is codified vengeance.

Hey RBear - I didn't parse anything. "So is...." Your words, RBear, those are your words. You equated the innocence of an unborn child with the actions of a heinous murderer. You did that, RBear. Own it.

If a woman is going to have an abortion I think she should made to view an ultrasound before doing so. So she can see what she's going to kill.

Pack, you're so funny. Sometimes I wonder how you get through an article in Breitbart. So many nuances to the statement, it must really take you a while.
