By Dave Andrusko Late in the day on Wednesday, a friend wrote a very kind note ending “Your election analysis is keeping me sane.” That is too generous by half, but is an indication of how so much post-November 6 commentary is either self-evident, at one extreme, or badly misreads what happened nine days ago, …Continue reading "Nine days out and what can we say about the Election results?"

By Dave Andrusko On a recent edition of Pro-Life Perspective, National Right to Life President and PLP Host Carol Tobias talked about the enormous impact of voting—and how you can’t vote unless you are registered! “The impact pro-life voters make in sending pro-life candidates to Congress is immeasurable,” Mrs. Tobias explained. When pro-lifers are elected, …Continue reading "May sound simple, but you can’t vote if you are not registered!"
By Dave Andrusko Some years ago pro-life former Arkansas Governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee spoke at the National Right to Life Convention. I remember like it was yesterday as he told the story of his daughter Sarah and their 1994 tour of Yad Vashem, a memorial to those who died in the Holocaust. …Continue reading "“Why Didn’t Somebody do Something?”"
