Other Views: Why Women Are Voting Republican

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 Democrats think 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.

Clinton-appointed Judge smacks down Obama Admin’s request to stop Florida’s “voter purge”

Judge Robert Lewis Hinkle rejected a request by the Obama Administration to halt Florida’s purge of non-citizen voters from the state’s voter rolls.

This is a big victory not just for Florida Governor Rick Scott, but for the rule-of-law and voters across the state who should not have their votes diluted by people ineligible to vote. Continue reading

Governor Rick Scott exposes the left’s political schizophrenia

Today Florida Governor Rick Scott announced that Florida will sue the Obama Administration–specifically the Department of Homeland Security–over access to a database that would assist the State of Florida in its efforts to purge non-citizens from the state’s voter rolls.

The database in question known as “Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements” or SAVE allows government agencies to verify the immigration or citizenship status of people applying for government benefits, or in this case to determine their eligibility to vote.

Florida has been under fire for months by liberal groups and the feds for scrutinizing the state’s voter rolls.  Continue reading
