I allowed myself the luxury of being a single issue voter this year.
My reason was simple- I've become very cynical about the whole voting process, and Obama was sure to take my state anyway (by 15 polling points at the time I voted). So I allowed myself to follow my faith, and vote Seamless Garment of Life.
This did NOT, surprising to some, lead me to vote Republican.
Republicans like to say that they're pro-life. But 17 of the last 35 years they've had majorities on the Supreme Court, and have yet to even consider revoking Roe V. Wade
For 6 out of the past 8 years, they've held majorities in Congress, in State Legistatures, and in the Presidency, yet Ron Paul's Right to Life Amendment couldn't get out of committee.
Due to these two facts, I'm forced to assume that for Republicans at least, being pro-life is nothing more than campaign promises to be broken.
