On Democrats: Are They Really Female Friendly?

Watching Senator Hillary Clinton’s speech at the DNC really made me wonder.  Why isn’t she their presidential candidate?  She is very intelligent, articulate, and experienced enough to become an effective leader.  I know I’m eating some of my very own words.  She and her group-think policies scared me at first; however, after hearing some of the very scary leftist policies of Senator Obama, the United States bashing done by some of his closest allies, and his lack of any real solutions other than pretty rhetoric about how we need change (any idea how all this change will be funded–besides more stealing from the middle-class and the job creators?) and Senator Clinton looked better and better.  In fact, she’s not that far left of Senator McCain.  They both are pretty much near the center of the political spectrum, closer in ideology to the majority of hard-working everyday Americans who love this country and want to make it better.  The Democrats seem pretty excited about Michelle Obama playing the traditional role of devoted mommy and supportive first lady, but for all their feminist talk, do they really want to see a female president?

As a lifelong feminist myself, I could never understand the Democrats single-minded support of policies that are so damaging to women.  On the surface, abortion seems to be all about female rights.  It’s “freedom of choice” for the woman, or so it’s touted by the Dems.  It actually is a desperate reaction by a scared woman who is blinded to better options.  It’s a painful choice made by a girl that lacks support from others in her life.  Who it actually helps is the guy that made her pregnant who no way wants to be saddled with 18 years of child-support payments, or maybe the big-shot married bum that doesn’t want his wife to find out he was playing around.  At some point in her life, I would bet that any feeling compassionate woman would feel some pain and remorse for her child that might have been.  In fact, I worked with a girl that had an abortion when she was a teen.  I could sometimes see the pain in her eyes when she talked about it (which wasn’t often).  I’m sure the pain was much keener when she went on to have her other two children and saw how special they were.  Making women over-reliant on government aid is another thing that keeps females poor and dependent.  These are not things that are helpful in the long run to our sisters and our daughters.  But it might earn the Democrats a few votes.

Hillary & The New York Times vs. America

If somehow Satan got on the GOP ballot, and Hillary Clinton was his Democratic contender, well, the New York Times has just convinced me that I wouldn’t be able to vote. They (surprise, surprise) endorse Senator Clinton, which just proves how bad she is for the country. Because the New York Times is as anti-life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as the Communist Manifesto. And so is Hillary Clinton. I always thought Clinton was a little bit scary with her ability to lie about things that were clearly on record. Her desire to reinvent herself and say just about anything she believes will put her in a position of power is beyond frightening.When you’re trying to buy votes to get into power, you will say anything to get there. Because if you are in power, you are not going to have to live with the consequences. You will be in your ivory tower, with your deluxe health care and your guaranteed retirement nest egg.

I understand why Hillary panders to the get-something-for-nothing crowd. But I don’t understand why so many otherwise good-hearted Americans still fall for forced wealth redistribution. Communism/socialism does NOT work. There may not be many homeless people in a socialist society, but everyone else lives in a shack (except for the ruling elite). There is no incentive to create, explore, and invent. The bottom of the rung is where everybody is because there is no way to rise above it. In a capitalist society, there are, of course, going to be people at the bottom. But a lot of times, these people are just starting out. They can have dreams of success and work hard to achieve their dreams. And for the people that are truly unable to achieve a better quality of life on their own due to unavoidable hardship or disability(rather than laziness or a sense of entitlement), the altruistic nature of a happy and fulfilled society will normally ensure them a better quality of life than that provided by “forced altruism”. Remember how generously Americans responded to so many disasters.

So thank you, New York Times for convincing me that my instincts about Hillary were correct. No system is perfect because people are not perfect. But it’s always better to have the individual choice to strive for perfection!
