Amidst the celebrations of the curtailment of individual freedoms in the name of
corporate religiosity, the GOP forgot that women vote.
I was disappointed that the author of this article repeated the Democrat
propaganda that the Supreme Court ruling allows for-profit companies to refuse
to provide insurance coverage for female contraceptives. That is false.The Supreme Court allowed for-profit companies to avoid providing
insurance coverage for four out of sixteen specific contraceptive methods, since
these four methods cause the death of a fetus. It is not unusual that someone,
religious or not, would object to supporting what they deem to be murder.It would have been even more accurate if the article had mentioned that
absolutely nothing prohibits the female employees from purchasing these four
methods on their own.
@ HutteriteAdditionally, the GOP is hoping for a large amount of self
deportations to diminish the latino vote.
Does this not show, once again, that Romney was right. Winning elections is no
longer about wise leadership, principled stands, and bold vision. Instead,
winning elections is about giving away something to each voting block. Women
want free contraception. Hispanics want free pathway to citizenship. The
unemployed want unemployment benefits. The retired want better medicare and
social security. Just pick a demographic or voting block and fill in the blank
with the free stuff offered to win elections.So the fact that the
Supreme Court found that forcing a business to offer contraceptive benefits is
unconstitutional doesn't matter. It's all about free stuff.I believe that Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, Madison, Hamilton and our
Founders are rolling in their graves over the fickle and foolish voters who can
no longer converse regarding principles of freedom. Instead, we talk about free
Hispanic's do not decide this countries elections, remember Eric Cantor. Are business leaders trying to scare Republicans into voting for
Anyone who believes either major party is doing what is best for this country is
foolish! They are attaching their name to a gnat! The corollary is thinking
that any government program is going to make it better! The blindness and folly
in that is beyond words!
Hey David -" Instead, we talk about free stuff."Yes, we expect our government to give us GOOD GOVERNANCE, just like the
founders envisioned.It's not completely free though.We all must abide by the social contract . . . So it's give and take.We give our taxes, and we get good governance. At least we do until
"Conservatives" obstruct that good governance.Right now,
"Conservatives" are this nation's biggest problem.
@davidyou forgot a few, big business wants to be able to fouled or air and
render our water undrinkable without regard, banks want to be able to act with
wanted disregard for the law, the rich want massive tax breaks, religion wants
to rule with a iron fist including only allowing those that are
"Christian" to have constitutional rights etc.
Intervention,You are exactly correct. Pick a constituency, a
demographic voting group, and fill in the blank. Campaigning is rarely a matter
of vision, leadership, and governance. Rather it is a big raffle for giving
away free stuff. Republicans are guilty of the same, though they speak to a
group of citizens who sincerely want to have balanced budgets. We
must all reset our expectations, study principles of government that lead our
Founders to establish the greatest nation on the earth, and seek to return to
You want movement in immigration legislation? Talk to Harry Reid.
Good governance......Stimulus cash for clunkers and billions to
support a porous border and a foreign policy that kills our ambassadors and
leaves better men who painted a building for Hilary and she let them all
die....I want a refund Gary O.Democrats are not what the
founders envisioned nor are they the American dream.......democrats are takers
and fakers, not makers!
Hey "Truth"". . . democrats are takers and fakers, not
makers"Sounds like you're projecting again.The
Dems are the can-do Party. The Repubs are the can't-do Party."I want a refund . . . "Do you now? You don't
deserve one, but a lot of us do.In fact, a special tax should be
