I used to think abortion was fine and capital punishment was terrible. Now I think just the opposite. So, see, I can change my mind. A librul can't.

I've changed my mind on abortion over the years. I voted for Bush Sr in the hopes that he would stack the Court to overturn Roe. Over the next few years, though, I saw the error of my ways and voted for Clinton in '92.

I'm OK with capital punishment in theory, but the reality of crooked cops and prosecutors and the system slanted against minorities has convinced me that it is not workable. People get all worked up about a mass murderer like Ted Bundy, and rightfully so, but there are too many cases of innocent people being convicted to let emotion dictate policy.
