Thank you to our Staten Island neighbors for keeping this seat in hands of the pro-America party, and out of the hands of the party of crime.

Whoopi Goldblatt from The Projects says:
Hey DoubleBara, they already have the right to choose aborting the unwanted baby. What needs to be expanded? Maybe, just maybe, you are too obsessed with abortions as most Democrats are. Try to see the big picture for a change.
