What Did Bernie Say is a Constitutional Right?

by Daveda Gruber:

When it comes to the Constitution, I stand by the document one hundred percent. Senator Bernie Sanders, the Democrat 2020 Presidential runner from Vermont, insists that he stands by abortion being a  “constitutional right.”

On Wednesday Sanders made the statement as an seeming comeback to the virtual abortion ban just approved in Alabama.

It is no surprise that Sanders believes that abortion is a right of the woman to choose no matter what the situation is.

Alabama’s legislature passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a ‘class A felony’ at any stage of pregnancy. There are almost no exceptions.

Democratic presidential candidates have all made similar arguments to give women the right to choose as they are totally against the Alabama bill. If the bill becomes law, it will go into effect in six months.

Sanders tweeted this out:

Have you ever read the Constitution? I never saw anything in the Constitution that makes abortion a “constitutional right.”

In fact, the U.S. Constitution does not specifically address abortion. Now, abortion-rights activists argue that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution includes a “right to privacy” that allows women to decide whether to have an abortion. The Supreme Court has basically endorsed abortion as referred to in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

I still do not understand how a right to terminate a pregnancy and in that decision end a baby’s life and that be considered the right to privacy? Privacy to commit murder?

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, tweeted:

On Wednesday New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said on MSNBC, “This is an outrage and it’s nothing short of an attack on women’s basic human rights and civil rights and it’s something that women of America are going to have to fight against with everything they’ve got.”

In the United States, over 92% of abortions are the result of unintended pregnancy. I’d like to introduce a couple of novel ideas. Women can abstain from the activity that produces a pregnancy, use measures that prevent pregnancy or have an operation to prevent a pregnancy. Also, men can do this too. A vasectomy is easy to get.

If Alabama and other conservative states hope to ignite legal fights and eventually overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, conservative justices must continue to be added to the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump has done a fine job with Supreme Court Justices, so far, and that could put an end to the right to abortion except for extraordinary circumstances.

Isn’t it time for Americans to stop murdering their children? Shouldn’t we give the unborn a right to live?

Who’s too Old for the Job?

by Daveda Gruber:

Are there people running for the White House in 2020 who are too old? Someone seems to thinks so. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates thinks that some, including President Trump, may be too old for the job.

At seventy-five, Gates is currently the chancellor of the College of William & Mary. He appeared on CBS’ “Face The Nation” and the interview proved to reveal his thoughts on age and the presidency.

Gates said that the ages of presidential candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders could be a “problematic” issue for the two.

The aging white males have been in politics for nearly their whole lives and Biden is currently 76 and Sanders is 77. They will be older in 2020.

Gates, in a pre-taped interview, said, “I’m not sure you have the intellectual acuity that you might have had in your 60’s. The thought of taking on those responsibilities at this point in my life would be pretty daunting.”

Gates served as defense secretary for both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

He also said that he thinks that President Trump may be too old to be in office. Trump is now 72 and he was the oldest person to be sworn in as president at age 70.

Gates said, “When you’re talking about being the president of the United States, the ability to do the job in every respect has always got to be a consideration.”

Gates is a Republican and remembers Ronald Reagan who was 72 when he was elected to his second term in office. Gates spoke of Reagan and said that he was “a pretty great president.”

I agree. I believe that Reagan was a great president.

Besides the diversity that White House hopefuls on the Democratic side have in their group, they have the oldest candidates, as well. Mayor Pete Buttigieg is the youngest white male at thirty-seven and Sanders is the eldest at age seventy-seven.

In my opinion, which is the same as other Republicans, I do not feel that Trump is too old. He has a lot of energy and he is doing a great job for America.

Personally, I’ll be voting for Trump and not any of the Democratic runners have my attention in a positive way. All I see is Socialism and Creepiness coming from the left.
