Women's Lives Would Be Better With a Republican President

Politics & Views 99

happy ladyAll four Republican candidates for President are staunch supporters of women’s rights. They unabashedly campaign for the rights of every American to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They do not believe any person should be discriminated against based on race, age, or gender.

Mitt Romney’s marriage is one of my favorite things about the man. A person can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats his wife, and the sheer adoration Mitt has for Ann reveals that he absolutely believes women are equal to men. If he didn’t believe women to be capable or intelligent, he’d never seek his wife’s advice, but as he told Larry King in 2007, "She's also my best counselor. There is no issue that is important to me, political or personal, in terms of personnel type issues, that I don't ask Ann's advice."

Rick Santorum has openly stated that he would never restrict a women’s access to birth control, even as he opposed a law that would force churches to provide health care coverage to their female employees, even if it went against the tenants of their faith. He said:

That has nothing to do with the right of a woman ... we're not talking about denying women the access to contraception, they can go and get it, but we're talking about having a church of which they happen to chose to work for and they know their position in working for them, you're now forcing them as a condition of employing people to pay for something that again is a grievous moral wrong.

How about that ... Santorum even believes that women should have a right to choose their own place of employment. 

Newt Gingrich is fighting like mad for the rights of unborn females. He believes that they should be given personhood status and protection under the law. Ok, he likes everyone in the unborn demographic and will work hard to ensure fetal equality in the United States.

No matter who wins the GOP ticket, moms’ lives will improve with a Republican president in 2013, because everyone’s lives will improve. Government spending will be slashed, a budget might actually pass, hiring restrictions will be lifted, Boeing might open its factory in South Carolina, and there’s a possibility we could create a million new jobs and lower the cost of gas by drilling for oil right here in the good old U. S. of A.

What mama wouldn’t want a President intent on getting the government out of our personal and professional lives so that we can work hard to provide our kids and raise them as we see fit?

Yes and lesbian and transgender women would have the same rights as straight women, in all aspects. And if any woman was a victim of abuse, they would all have access to the proper healthcare and/or contraceptives should they need it. Oh wait, they won't? Oh silly me...

The author is joking, right?

I wish it were a joke.  Erikson is a staunch Republican, herself, who writes nonsensical articles like this on a regular basis. It seems that, in her opinion, women are equal so long as they are subservient, barefoot, and pregnant in the kitchen.

Stacey. Stacey.

Wow you mean it's not the fifties anymore and women are allowed to think for themself and be in the workplace? ohmygawd Im in! Thank God Mitt will be staying out of my professional life.

And Newt, what gal doesnt dream of a guy telling her what to do with her own body. I wouldnt know how to think if I didnt have a man thinking for me. I am SO glad Newt is staying out of my personal life on this one.

How did Rick become so in tune to womens needs? Im glad he will let me have access to healthcare I need. I felt so opressed before trying to get BC, none of those men who control my personal life would let me have it!

Where do I sign?

Man I wish I was as simple minded as you...do you still make sure you get your weekly allowances from your husband when he gives it to the kids?

I'm so glad these articles post in the morning. It's a great laugh to get the day started.

And for those of you new to Stir or Jenny's "opinions", yes, she's dead serious. Thank goodness for all those liberal women years ago who fought for her right to voice an opinion, otherwise her husband would have to put her in timeout.

Whoa, I thought I was reading The Onion for a second. Turns out it was just another Erikson post. You should really contact them about a job though. All your articles are perfect for the fake news source.

don't listen to the haters - i agree with you...this awesome 'hope & change' has been SOOO beneficial to our family and myself...not - i can't wait until November...if Obama is re-elected i am throwing in the towel and joining the liberals on welfare...if you can't beat them, join them for 4 years...might as well since i've been paying for his 'hope and change' for the past 3 years and haven't seen anything beneficial to me...God help us if that man is elected for another term...
