Who Do You Trust?

We contend that we are in relationship with everything. You are in relationship with your community, your job and your country and, if so, this entire election season has been a very long, drawn out process of playing “The Bachelor” with America. In the beginning we had a bunch of choices from the right ranging from a homophobic extremist to a Pizza Mogul and even a woman! Now we are down to the final two. We take them home to meet our parents and then we need to make a decision.

More On The War

We have been fighting in Afghanistan for 11 years. We have almost 60,000 troops overseas fighting this horrible war. We are also fighting a different war in this country, The War on Women. You may argue that unlike Afghanistan, the War on Women does not exist or at least there would be no casualties. I disagree. One of the prongs of The War on Women is systematically taking away a woman’s right to choose. We know that Romney has stated he would repeal Roe v Wade. We know the Ryan has introduced legislation redefining rape as forcible and legitimate while also introducing ‘personhood’ legislation.

They believe that an unborn child is a victim and abortion is murder. They believe that every pregnancy should come to term barring some exceptions for some. The only exceptions that are mentioned are life of the mother and/or rape and incest. What is the most interesting part of the Pro-Life stand is that even though they insist on a woman carrying the baby to term, the Pro-Life movement does not go beyond the womb!

The War On Women Is Real

According to the Conservative Media Machine, the War on Women is a rouse to inflame hysterical women so that they may vote Democrat. That this fabled War on Women is a farce and Republicans love their Mommies and Sisters and Daughters. It may be that the right loves their Mothers but the idea that women are equal to men has nothing to do with love. The War on Women is real. No, we are not fighting female circumcision or oppression the likes of Malala but our rights as Women and Citizens of the United States are very much in the hands of men who just don’t think we can take care of ourselves or make our own decisions.
