Thompson’s site has a new feature highlighting where he stands on the issues. I agree with much of what he has to say, although he doesn’t offer many details. One thing that struck me was that it reinforces my view that he seems to be running more as a federalist than as a social conservative. He doesn’t include a separate section describing his views on abortion, mentioning it only as part of his section on “appointing judges faithful to our constitution.” Also, his “building stronger families” section says: “Strong families are the bedrock of our nation and our culture. They are built around the sanctity of life and the institution of marriage, which is the union of a man and a woman. ” But he doesn’t mention anything about the constitutional amendment on marriage that he proposed. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong in this, it is just interesting that, he really doesn’t seem to be making a hard push on social issues.
