Both parties run our country over a financial cliff, wreck
us environmentally, fail to generate jobs for over 14 million Americans and
culturally destroy our country with endless immigration. The list grows.
One wonders why any American voted for either party’s
Our U.S. Congress provides the
finest example of the Peter Principle—total incompetence. Both candidates should have lost. A third party candidate would do a better job
because it’s obvious that democrats and republicans have failed the American
people for two decades.
As the vote showed, 51 percent to 49 percent, we share a
divided country. Half hate Obama and the
other half ride on his ability to provide welfare, food stamps, government
jobs, assisted housing, amnesties and free medical care. From 36 million to 47 million Americans now
subsist on food stamps during Obama’s first term. A lot of folks cannot secure a
job and a lot of folks like a free ride.
“Democracy will cease to exist when you take
away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
With such a failed four years by Obama, how did he win another term
in the obvious light of his incompetence?
Answer: he enjoyed the majority-minority welfare vote. Folks love
getting things for free. But of
particular note, Obama captured all those women who demand pro-choice.
At some point, the Republican Party must evolve out of the
Dark Ages and accept Pro-Choice as a single, viable right for millions of women
in America. No one can legislate
morality, ethics or personal choices.
Around the world, 46 million women annually choose abortion. They choose
it because they cannot provide for another child. They choose it because they cannot secure
birth control. They choose it because
they suffer desperation of their poverty.
Notice that whenever a republican president reaches the
White House, he kills the annual $180 million given to International Family
Planning and birth control. Republicans
represent modern day moral troglodytes. They never think about the 10 million
children that starve to death annually around the globe because of the lack of
I remember my college years in 1965, when rich girls became
pregnant, they took “Mercy flights” to Great Britain and returned
un-pregnant. The poor however, delivered
babies by the truck load. Their poverty
became cyclical and horrific.
At the same time, 1.2 million American women turned to backroom
medical butchers for abortions. Some
doctors provided abortions, but feared for their licenses from capricious women
who might expose them.
Finally, in 1972, the Supreme Court provided Roe vs. Wade
and gave women a choice. Today, women
may visit a Family Planning Clinic for counseling to either keep the baby or
choose to terminate it. It’s got to be a
terribly distressing situation and choice either way.
But, by God, republicans and the religious right condemn it
and vote to send those female sinners to the gates of hell. What they don’t understand about choice is
this: it’s none of their business. It’s
no one’s business how you eat even if you are so obese you are killing
yourself. (You ARE killing yourself,
too.) It’s no one’s business if you
smoke or get drunk every night in an ongoing attempt to kill yourself. It’s no one’s business if you smoke pot or
Finally, your morality cannot be
applied to anyone else
If the Republican Party expects to continue as viable, it
must evolve into the 21st century.
It must deal with reality. It
must grant women their personal choices and its leaders must move to a
pro-choice platform. It needs to stop
its “nanny-state” caretaking as to abortion, drugs and gay marriage.
If it fails to evolve, it will proceed at a rapid speed
toward extinction. The fact remains as
Thomas Jefferson said, “A republic provides for the tyranny of the majority.” In this case, the majority of women demand
pro-choice. Republicans either get onto
the train or they will be left behind standing on the railroad tracks of the past.
