A picture of me taken at a Romney rally in Apopka was featured in the October 16th edition of USAToday. The accompanying editorial titled, “Why Women Might Vote Republican” is valid. However, I felt Vanderkam’s point is a product of what I detail in my response.
Today’s women are not a voting block. A product of a successful women’s rights movement is having the luxury to vote on a variety of issues. While many women will undoubtedly support the Democrats in this and future elections, I expect many will also support the Republican nominee–and in record numbers. Why? Women are tired of laboring under feminist stereotypes perpetuated by a small faction of liberal demagogues whose archaic belief is that all women subscribe to a victim mentality that dictates contraception and abortion are paramount issues to female voters.
“Obama made sure to play up the Romney-Ryan stance on abortion. Democrats assume this is a losing issue for republicans among women.” Why would the Democratsthink that travesty of a situation is a “winning issue”? There is an antiquated feminist movement within the Democrat party that dictates this “issue” be the only issue.
The classic struggle between the younger generations and the baby boomers is stark. The “Women’s Movement” puts ladies in a position where if they work and don’t stay home with their families or don’t have families, they are wrong and equally wrong if they stay home and do not work. The pressure to conform to a split societal norm creates a wedge issue from which demagogues feed. President Obama exploiting this wedge reeks of desperation, not successful leadership.
Order up some Excedrin for the White House. Thursday is shaping up to be one hell of a day for the Obama Administration.
First, it is the day that the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to release its ruling on the federal health care law, otherwise known as “ObamaCare.” Most legal experts believe at least parts of the law (if not the whole thing) will be ruled unconstitutional. Either way, it will set the tone for the rest of this all-too-important election year and these uncertain times for the U.S. economy.
I had the pleasure of running into congressional candidate and bedrock conservative Karen Harrington in Las Vegas today at the RightOnline conference. Harrington is running in Florida’s Congressional District 23 against incumbent congresswoman, DNC Chair, and all-around unpleasant leftist bigmouth Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
That alone makes her a patriot in my book.
Anyway, I had a chance to sit down with Harrington between sessions and ask her a few questions about her goals and campaign: Continue reading →
US Senator Marco Rubio’s widely-anticipated memoir An American Son is set to be released nationally this Tuesday, June 19th. The next day, he kicks off a multi-state book signing tour starting in Philadelphia, PA.
From Pennsylvania, Rubio takes his book tour on the road to several states including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
Many of those sound like battleground states, don’t they? #butidigress
