I was listening carefully the last presidential debate and realized what I knew already: I’m a political orphan pro life. I’m pro life because I believe that life is a gift from God that nobody has the right to take away.

This is why I’m against the war also, above all that concept of the preemptive war, and especially if there is a preemptive war with bad intelligence. (So, I suspect you will hurt me in the future, then I kill you now. If my information about your intentions was wrong, bad luck for you, you are dead).

My being pro life makes me against death penalty. If a criminal can be a life in prison an the society safe that way, why take his or her life? and after so many proved mistakes?

What about the guns on the streets without sufficient regulation? Im against

What about people dying of starvation or lack of medical help in one of the richest nations of the world because they can afford it? or in poor countries because nobody helps them? I cannot understand it

I can say with senator Mc Cain that I’m proudly pro life meaning against abortion (I’ll never would support such a thing), but I’m afraid I cannot say with him almost anything else. Even things that for me are also included in being a lover of live, and above all the live of the smallest, the poorest, the more needed of help.

And in the other side, I would go with Obama everywhere in his economic program and his health security program, and above all in other debates, above the war, but I didn’t like what he said about abortion, except that promise that he would elect the justices for his merits and experience and no for his political background.

Definitely, I’m a political orphan I have been so for a long time. Here in Europe in this thing goes like this. The moderately right parties talk sometimes against abortion, no too much, but do nothing to change things, and the left parties if they have the opportunity expand the possibilities. So, with words, there are some pro life politics, with facts there aren’t. I’m tired to listen to words and see no facts so I decide in my country my vote as an independent based in other questions. When I get depressed for that seen that nobody does a thing about the unborn I use to remember that there are more lives at risks than those millions of unborn babies around the world and try to work for them.
