For John, BLUF: The reason Trump is popular is he pushes back. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Republican Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina seems to be willing to take it to the Democrats. Here, on CNN, she is talking about Ms Hillary Clinton and her stand on abortion.
“It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital.” That’s Hillary Clinton’s position.I fear that that is Ms Clinton's position. It is sort of a regression to when Sparta was a City State and strong. On the other hand, it could be a position built on fear—fear than there can be no compromise with the majority of Americans who think there should be some limits on abortion. Any compromise and we could be on a slippery slope.
Given that SCOTUS has given us Roe v Wade, I see a natural fire brake, unless Ms Clinton fears a Constitutional Amendment, but then that could come anyway, if there were the support, which I doubt there is.
So, Ms Clinton comes off as an extremist. What can I say?
