A short, but long overdue ...

foray into politics. See what a "Pro-Life Party" might look like here. Excerpt:

A pro-life polity is not so much a group of programs as it is a new (and counter-cultural) was of looking at things. It allows us to work with a variety of people at different levels, and so bridge merely partisan differences in American politics. For example, we can work with Fundamentalists who may merely be anti-abortion, and with Evangelicals who are pro-family, and with Democrats who want to improve the worker's situation, and with Republicans who want to restore virtue in public life, etc. More importantly, it allows us to showcase the richness of Catholic Social Teaching, and is therefore a tool of evangelization. It allows us to display the love of Christ and say with St. Paul, “Look at these Christians, how they love one another.”

Read the whole thing-an outline of policy issues, and how the Republicans aren't even close.

And then you get Sam Brownback hoping to move the Republican Party to be the "Whole Life Party": Read all about it here .

Maybe its time for me to dust off the bumper stickers (see the upprer right sidebar) for my '012 run (See here and here and here and here for starters). (Maybe I could sell them-nothing much else is selling these days....)

Oremus pro invicem!
