Governor Northam's FOOD for THOUGHT...

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam
I absolutely HATE do-gooders. One of the reasons I knew very early on that Catholicism wasn't for me was two phrases my Dad used to often repeat; "There but for the grace of God go I," and "I am my brother's keeper." At age 9, those two phrases agitated me, no end. Dripping, as they were, with that maudlin sense of superiority...looking down on those who are "helped."

I knew religion wasn't long for me. I just don't subscribe to that morality, though I do find it best to keep that to least for the most part.

ALTHOUGH...that Virginia Governor (Ralph Northam?) has me beat, hands down. Sure I support mandating birth control for all dependent poor and I support abortion on demand through the 1st trimester on the grounds that an UNWILLING parent is also an UNFIT one and I support the death penalty NOT via sterile lethal injection, but the guillotine or hanging....BUT Governor Northam has me beat and that's for sure.

The Governor turned a LOT of heads (and stomachs) when "NBC Washington’s Julie Carey asked Northam whether he supported a bill proposed by Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran (D), which would allow abortions - up to the moment of birth.

"In response, Northam said that a baby born alive could be “kept comfortable” and then “resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired” – the implication being that the baby could be left to die if the family decided they did not want to keep their child.

“In this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam said. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” (

Now THAT is cold!

What he described WASN'T abortion, but infanticide...and to his credit, he did quite non-chalantly and with some aplomb.

Now, his position and ANYONE'S who supports abortion, but opposes Capital Punishment is clearly illogical as his post birth "abortion," proves.

Governor Northam isn't squeamish about "making a baby comfortable" until it's time to snuff the child, why have ANY reservations about killing someone guilty of murder, human trafficking, pedophilia, any crime involving torture, etc.?

There IS no logical, reasonable reason to oppose the death penalty, especially while supporting the death penalty for an unwanted child, already born.

I'm at least honest about my own morality. I might say, "But you're not running for Office." More's the pity that so many who do run for office apparently have to conceal their own morality.
