    Default Survey: GOPers less likely to ask sexual offenders in party to quit than Dems

    http://time.com/time-person-of-the-y...ence-breakers/

    Interesting statistic in the new TIME magazine cover story with the Person of the Year Award. According to a TIME/Survey Monkey poll when the accused offender was in their party only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation as compared to 74% of Democrats if the offender was in theirs. A 20 percent gap - that's no small difference.

    Why the huge difference? Maybe the acceptance of Trump had a lot to do with that, but it's hard to say.

    For the those looking for the relevant text in the story, here it is:

    That political divide was revealed in the TIME/SurveyMonkey poll, which found that Republicans were significantly more likely to excuse sexual misdeeds in their own party. The survey found that while a majority of Republicans and Democrats agree that a Democratic Congressman accused of sexual harassment should resign (71% and 74% respectively), when the accused offender was in the GOP, only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation (compared to 82% of Democrats).

    Exactly. 15s of Google would have revealed that.

He'd be right there giving advice at all times and possibly even be appointed to a position of power. And Hilary is the one who defended him against his accusers by attacking said accusers in the media.

    Republicans and how most are now supporting Roy Moore are disgusting but democrats have no moral high ground until they fully renounce the Clintons.

    We'll never know, but I doubt Ds would be doing this if they had a 51 to 49 seat advantage and an R governor in Minnesota. In fact it would probably be a safe bet that they'd do nothing.

    Both parties really suck, and have been paying out millions behind closed doors to settle harrassment suits.

    I'll believe both parties are serious when we know who all the perpetrators are.
    Yeah, no. Democrats have to resign because of who their constituencies are and the organization they belong to. Trump and Moore can and will ride it out because their constituencies and organization don't care and actually are the people you describe as being like Democrats.

    I think that there is validity to the argument that if Clinton had won we would not be seeing this reaction about harassment.

    You're talking about "ifs" and "buts". If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, then we would all have a Merry Christmas.

    I'm talking about what is actually happening. You're imagining a false equivocation.

    Abortion has replaced segregation as the cause that Evangelicals rally around.

    How many years in prison should a woman get for having an abortion?

    So you are right about that.
    Now the dam has broken.

    There is a reckoning.

    The NPR station in NYC had two popular hosts booted today.

    So, everybody gets on the "outlaw abortion, which is the murder of an unborn child".

    If you're to believe the anti abortion crowd, then prison time for women who have an abortion has to be the end game.

    Otherwise, what's the point? Then the whole movement is incoherent and a huge waste of everybody's time.

    Like what, they're going to go on a 40 year crusade to make abortion illegal, and then not have any criminal penalties for women who have an abortion? LOL. Just wait. They will never, ever admit to it because they know their support then collapses to single digits, but you better ****in' believe they are gonna put those murderous sluts in jail.

    And leave the doctors out of it, which is their next dodge. Doctors should be punished, but not the women. Which is nonsense.

    Currently, right around half of all abortions the US, where abortion is ostensibly legal, are self induced, no doctor needed. That percentage is growing all the time, as there are numerous foreign governments and charities that make information on self induced abortions safe and accessible.

    So, abortion is illegal, and a woman in the US has a self induced abortion and gets caught.

    How many years in prison do you people plan on putting her away for?

    Not one of you scurrilous ****s will have the stones to answer that, so I will for you. 15-20 years in prison for having an abortion has to be the end game.

    I'm not sure even any Republicans, except maybe Moore, have taken that stance.

    The closest many get are pro life except for rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. That's the same position I have.

    I think the Christianity is unfair but i get why you said that. It is the modern day face of conservatism though, which is sad.
