It turns out that my category “2012 Election House of Pain” was a pain cave for the Republican nominee and not Barack Hussein Obama.
Let me save myself and you time this morning in analyzing why Mitt Romney lost to a monumental anti-American who has bankrupted our nation, left Wall Street criminals in their jobs with full pay, and a dozen other crimes against America.
It’s very simple: Abortion rights and the women’s vote.
Some statistics according to the Daily Caller:
Percentage of the electorate
Women – 53%
Men – 47%
Romney – 53%
Obama – 45%
Romney – 44%
Obama – 54%
As I know from my own extended family and women I work with, all of whom I respect, abortion rights trumps ALL other issues of national security: the federal debt, the economy, American sovereignty and security, foreign relations, you name it. They tell me this. This is not my opinion.
All issues fall before the One, and this is amazing to me given the cold reality of what would happen to all women’s rights if America were to degrade and lose its dominant status in the world — the one that defeated the Nazis and saved the West from Soviet fascism — and lose its northern european, greco-roman, and judeo-christian culture.
Do women worry about Greece-level deficits, a shrinking military, a growing federal bureaucracy that takes power away from the people, and a porous border that allows tens of millions of non-assimilating illegal immigrants to balkanize our culture for the first time in its history? Can the pillars of our superpower status — a strong military and a strong economy — sustain any amount of damage and still go on without interruption or degradation that affects them and all of us?
Whether they do or not, the simple fact is that Republicans cannot win the presidency running on anti-abortion, period.
Let me say it more strongly than that, and I am speaking to my Conservative friends now, whom I really want to get through to on this: if Democrats nominated a candidate who had committed genocide, and the Republican candidate is perceived as threatening to abortion rights, the mass murderer will win the general election because of the “gender gap”.
And so it is time for Republicans to reconsider their anti-abortion stance, and I really mean this.
Personally speaking I am against abortion, but in favor of a woman’s right to get one. Women who want them are going to get them — it is their bodies after all — and it’s time to stand down on this issue if you haven’t already.
There is no other way to save the United States.
