"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    The candidates all lie and say they are undecided just to get votes and then once in office they start attacking our rights.

      No, Larsen, they don’t “all lie and say they are undecided. As this article notes, “Every other Democratic primary candidate, David Allard, Dawn Euer and John Florez, answered with an unequivocal “Yes,” as did independent candidate Kimberly Ripoli.”

      I completely reject the idea that politicians are all the same. That’s simply not true. Like the rest of humanity, some are honest and some are not, some are dedicated and some are not, some are self-centered and some are not… and so on.

      And some, once elected, will stand up for our rights and others will not. It is up to each citizen to determine which candidate that is, and which candidate that is not. Saying “candidates all lie” is merely being lazy.

    Made me blue.

    If Hanos is “undecided” as he claims, I’ll eat my hat. I say he is 100% pro-life which he’s made abundantly obvious in this interview.
