I could write a complex essay about why Socialists and Liars in the Democrat party are beating Republican candidates in elections lately, but I am not going to, because I don’t need to.
The answer is simple: Republican candidates begin every race having already lost 52% of the American population, otherwise known as women. Not hispanics. Not African Americans. Not gay/lesbian/transgender voters.
As I have written before, women elected Bill Clinton as president, twice, and women elected Barack Obama as president, twice. A majority of men, for example, voted for Mitt Romney in the pivotal 2012 presidential election, but there are more women than men in the voting population.
And now women have elected a known swindler/liar/fraudster as governor of Virgina, who beat Ken Cuccinelli by an estimated 3 percentage points:
Exit polls showed McAuliffe won women by … 9 points, the same margin Obama won them by in the presidential election last year. The Washington Post poll last week had put McAuliffe ahead among women by an astonishing 24 points. <source>
This is because of the culture wars over reproductive rights, and Republicans tend to be pro-life, which gets spun by Democrats as anti-women’s-rights.
This issue is such a sure-thing for Democrats that made-up ads accusing the Republican candidate of denying women’s rights achieve their desired aim (i.e., the slander actually sticks, even when untrue).
McAuliffe, ever the smart political hack, trumped up the false notion that Cuccinelli would have reduced women’s access to birth control, though this notion is completely false and obviated by law and Supreme Court decisions; it’s absurd on its face.
Even some women knew how absurd it was. Here is an excerpt from Rebecca Downs writing at liveactionnews.org:
Planned Parenthood and Terry McAuliffe seem to be up to cheap tricks when it comes to attacking a pro-life candidate. With any hope, the people of Virginia see such schemes for what they really are. <source>
No, Rebecca, a plurality of Virginians did NOT see such schemes for what they really are.
This issue keeps winning for Democrats, and so I am going to say this again, even though I know it is unpopular among Conservatives:
It is time to throw in the towel on the anti-abortion issue.
The plain fact is that a very tiny percentage of women will ever even seek to abort a fetus, and at the same time Liberal programs like Obamacare will cause the suffering of hundreds of millions of Americans and the actual deaths of millions of Americans as federal bureaucrats create doctor shortages and deny care to those who need it. And at the same time our nation will no longer be able to finance its crushing debts and face the devil’s choice of hyper-inflating our currency (which only brings the end faster — see Germany in the 1920s) or provoking foreign lenders into armed conflict as our default on trillions of dollars of US treasuries sends shock waves around the world.
The Obama tyranny is in full swing, is creating and inviting this apocalypse, and increasingly cannot be stopped. All Americans, including all Liberals and Democrats, are starting to suffer from the hallmarks of Central Power: diminishing choices, higher taxes and penalties, greater dependence on bureaucracies that inevitably fail to deliver value, and a growing system of patronage that will favor the rich among us while leaving the rest of us at the back of the line.
The abortion issue is a loser not just for Republicans, but for our entire nation, because if Republicans cannot win elections, then we cede our future to this soul-crushing outcome.
Many women have become one-issue voters — that one issue being abortion rights — and until we remove this issue from elections, our candidates are going to continue to lose, and our country will continue its plunge into dictatorship and fascism. This seems not to bother women, who apparently place the abortion issue very far above all else, and also seem to ignore the consequences of all these other issues (how are women’s rights doing in China? In Islam? in South America?).
So Let it go, Conservatives, Let It Go.
