Martinsburg, WV – We are committed to bringing you as much information about perspective presidential candidates as we possibly can. We believe that in order to vote responsibly you must know the facts about candidates and where they stand on important issues. One such issue is that of life. At the FPCWV we believe that life is sacred, given by our Creator, and must be protected to the fullest. For this reason we also believe in voting for candidates that hold these same values.
With that said take a moment and read the article below concerning current GOP presidential candidates. When it comes to this issue of life, I don’t think we can be too careful. We saw in the last election what happens when a candidate says he is pro-life (or something similar) but never truly clarifies the point and his record says otherwise. The result is, of course, the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade in American history. For this reason I believe it is imperative that we pay attention to what our state and federal lawmakers say, and more importantly, to how they legislate before we choose to vote for them.
In modern politics, the “single issue voter” gets a pretty bad rap. He is seen as unrealistic and intellectually myopic, a disservice to his party and, ultimately, his cause. Politics, after all, is about pragmatism; it is the art of the possible, and no thinking person allows themselves to be guided by their feelings on one single issue.
