I'm having a hard time understanding how we were supposed to vote for trump because he claimed to be anti-abortion for about 10 minutes. But she's pro-choice and that's fine.

I don't vote in France, but really, let's be consistent.

Vote against Trump is voting for abortion on demand.

Voting for Le Pen is morally fine.

I'm confused too. However, all of the presidential candidates (even conservatives) seem to be for abortion rights. I prefer Fillon, because he doesn't seem as nationalistic or extreme as Le Pen.

I'm not happy with Le Pen's position on abortion, but now she's saying she'll end Same Sex Marriage http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-marriage.html

Abortion isn't really a hot button issue in European politics, the way it is here.

France denounces cyberattacks blamed on Moscow http://www.thelocal.fr/20170219/fran...amed-on-moscow

If Le Pen wins, maybe even if Fillon wins, it'll be blamed on Russia

It's not.

People are falling nonsense.

France won't be rescued from anything if it thinks it can rebuild in part on the crushed skulls of the unborn child.

Probably. They keep throwing mud at the wall to stop a hard Brexit and to undermine Donald J. Trump to see what will stick.

Meanwhile the allegedly pro-Trump Putin had ships off the coast of Connecticut, and no, they weren't there to celebrate the Patriots Superbowl win.

What it really comes down to are people going to into the nonsense. If they do again it's pretty much game over for the First World.

They can cry, whine, scream, holler, riot and blame all they like. But prosperity, among other things, will be gone. Perhaps for good.

Even mainstream left-leaning atheists have their doubts about the future. They sure have more foresight than many Judeo-Christians do.
