one of the greatest freedoms in this country is the right to choose. Which party wants to strip americans of this freedom? Stripping people of freedom has become part of the core of the republican party. Not just in the right to choose but in the suppressing of voter rights. The GOP is the worst party in the country. It espouses freedoms for the wealthy but not for the individual. Time to 'man' up and fight the craziness that is the republican party.

The right to choose 32 oz soda? The right to choose trans fat food, tbrennan? The right to choose to pay for someone else's use of birth control?
Conservatives are not interested in stripping freedoms from anyone. They are interested in keeping the government from exceeding the powers granted it by the U.S. Constitution.

Democrat fight freedom to choose with almost everything except killing babies in the womb
Democrats constantly expand the size and power of the central government.
Liberals are the greatest threat to individual liberty we have ever faced.
The Libertarians are the party of Freedom and are on the opposite side of almost every issue from the democrats,

Cite some examples please. There has been No suppression of voter rights. Requiring a LEGAL citizen to demonstrate at least a modicum of responsibility is the least any government can ask of a citizen.
This country was founded by people who sought religious freedom. Many religious people feel that destroying an unborn fetus is MURDER and as such, they should not be forced to pay for someone else's abortion or contraception.
True freedom comes from ECONOMIC freedom and which party is trying to limit that? I will wait patiently for your answer. Please educate yourself and read some history books

ID for booze but not for a ballot? Keep drinking the Jimmy Jones Red, comrade!

But you don't understand, Duke. The progressives just know that the minorities are just too ignorant and incompetent to get the proper ID, and vote for those who will give them the opportunity to reach success.
The political parties throw a lot of glitz at us with their made-for-TV spectaculars, which we call conventions.

But the bottom line defining the choice facing Americans this year is stark and clear, and these conventions provide no new insights or information.

If you think we’re struggling because we don’t have enough government, then the Democrats are the party for you. If you think the point of government is to protect individual freedom, and the problem is it has gone way beyond that, then Republicans are the party for you.

No visual dominates the landscape...
