“If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are hopeless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them with their prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it,”
When former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee uttered those words at a Republican party meeting last week liberals nationwide went crazy, accusing Governor Huckabee of continuing the Republican war on women. They interpreted Huckabee's words as him saying that women cannot control their libidos. Nothing could be further from the truth but it seems truth matters not to the left.
Apparently their hearing and/or reading comprehension is substandard. Huckabee was clear - if the Democrats believe women can't handle their libidos or their reproductive systems then so be it. He said it very clearly yet the liberal media twisted (or simply don't understand) his words and made it out to be something it wasn't. Sadly, the uninformed who get their news from the main stream, liberal media will believe whatever they're told.
The thing is - regardless of what the left says - Huckabee wasn't wrong. Women in this country, particularly young, single women, have been led by the Democrats and the media to believe the government is the answer to everything - including their sex lives. They like to tell Republicans to "stay out of my uterus when it comes to abortion" while at the same time demanding "give me medications to keep me from becoming pregnant." So what they really mean is "I want the government in my uterus as long as it's doing what I want it to do there."
Democrats like to pretend they are the party who does things "for the children" yet the children can only benefit from those things if they survive the womb. And Democrats are making it more and more difficult for children to do that. They (Democrats) scream that conservatives are waging a war on women because they don't believe abortion for just any reason is moral or ethical. Liberals like to tell themselves that a baby is not a human being until it's actually outside the mother. Yet prosecutors all over the country will charge someone with two homicides if they kill a pregnant woman. Apparently it's a baby in that case.
When Sandra Fluke went before Congress and demanded the government provide her and her friends with birth control she became the Democrat sweetheart. She even got to speak at the Democrat National Convention the next year. She proved Huckabee's point nearly three years before he made it. And she became a liberal hero.
IF the government is going to supply birth control to women, or mandate that insurance companies cover birth control for women, why are they not doing the same thing for men? Whether everyone knows it or not, women cannot get pregnant without a man. It doesn't matter if the insemination is accomplished by copulation or artificially - it doesn't happen without the contribution from a man. So why is the government discriminating against men? Do these demanding women think they can get pregnant without us? There has only been one woman in history who did that. And it certainly wasn't Sandra Fluke.
Conservatives against abortion and taxpayer funded birth control for women aren't waging a war on women. They wage a War For Babies. I'm all for birth control for men and women. I simply don't believe I should pay for it for other people. Of course, liberals say it prevents unwanted babies and the cost to the taxpayers for them but they completely ignore personal responsibility. At some point that particular thing comes into the discussion. When did it become the government's job to provide personal responsibility to those who refuse to exercise it themselves? For that matter - if they're not responsible enough to purchase their own birth control why does anyone believe they will be responsible enough to use it if it's provided for free?
The other thing I want to say about the war on women is the upcoming Presidential election in 2016. It's no secret that Hillary Clinton, despite her complete failure and subsequent cover-up of the Benghazi incident, is the front runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016. There is absolutely no way she should get that nomination but she will. And any Republican who opposes her and criticizes her for Benghazi, or any other screw up she has committed, will be denounced by the left as sexist. I wouldn't want to be her opponent. No matter what you say, no matter how true it is, you will be branded a sexist and anti-woman. Even if you have a female running mate.
I actually hope the Republicans can come up with a good female candidate in 2016. A black female candidate would be perfect. That would confuse the left. And oh... how I love to do that.
The other hope I have is that in November of this year conservative voters will turn out in droves to keep the House and take over the Senate. It's the only way we can limit the damage to be done by President Obama in the next three years. He has already stated his intention to bypass Congress with his pen. So we need a majority in both Houses to override him at every opportunity. That way, if you like your country you can keep your country. Period.
