I've listened to clips from a show and just read this article
I find his comparison of bc to deodorant and toothpaste ludicrous. But he is out of touch with the majority of voters. It is said that 90% of all women have used bc....
I would think that it would alienate women.
The thing is, he didn't win re election because the younger people couldn't relate to him. I think that still holds. Did you see one of his supporters said it used to be women used an asperin for bc? They would place it between their legs and hold it.
I will have to re-read it because it's been a while for me.
Rick Santorum is absolutely right and I've taken a second look at him because of his stance on certain issues. He is not against birth control at all. What he is saying is that the government doesn't need to be in the business of controling or providing it for everyone. It is a personal responsibility. Birth control pills cost 4 bucks at Walmart and many clinics hand birth control out for free for those who can't come up with 4 dollars (a pack of cigarettes cost more!). Why does there have to be legislation passed to force someone, like the Catholic Church, to pay for it? He is right-where does this stop?
The whole birth control controversy is not about a women's rights issue. This is about freedom of religion and yet another burden on the backs of working class Americans.
I have a very hard time with all the candidates.
I too am having a hard time with the GOP candidates. Like you, Romney and Santorum are in line with my fiscal views but I'm not sure I can get past their religion.
Obama is adding destruction to any incentive to work. The more handouts he gives-the less people want to get up and earn their own. There are too many people being carried around in the cart and it's going to crash.
