    Many people that stay home to raise children are able to do so because the State provides for them. People relying on the State for their resources tend to vote democratic. A large percentage of child carers who choose to stay home, and choose to vote Democrat isn't a surprise at all.

    I must say I'm very offended by this article. I have lived in SLC for almost 40 years, am LDS, have served in very responsible positions in the church, have raised 4 active children, married in the Temple, and have 19 beautiful grandchildren, all active in the Church. I have been a Democrat most of my life. I will admit the party is not what it used to be and I tend to lean more to the middle but I could never be a conservative right wing Republican in this state.
    As far as I'm concerned, my politics is my business, and my religion is very personal. I resent being labeled and put into categories.

    This shouldn't actually be all that surprising if you spend any amount of time outside a very conservative state. Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who believe very strongly in family and do not agree with conservative politics. My wife is a homemaker, and a majority of the other stay-at-home moms and dads she interacts with are left-leaning in their politics.

    We believe strongly in family. We believe in instilling values such as love, justice, and compassion in our children. We believe the Republican Party has done a poorer job than others (especially lately) in promoting what we believe are important values.
