The Republican War on Women – It’s Time to Leave Frivolous Politics Behind
Democrats will try anything they can to grab victory from defeat. That much is known. If you look at it in that light, it’s not surprising to see them hammer home the point about the fictitious “war on women” Republicans are supposedly engaged in. This is a political party whose chosen president has basically doomed their chances in November’s congressional elections. They know they can’t win if they pretend to support his policies, so they’re going on the attack.
Libs have returned again and again to this trope whenever they can’t find any competent issues on which to run. Sadly, the low-information sect is particularly vulnerable to their arguments. It made it easy for Obama to cruise to victory in 2012, winning the female vote by double digits. Fortunately, it looks like their transparent strategy is beginning to show some serious cracks. Voters are starting to wake up to the fact that their cries are little more than propaganda – the type you might find in liberal arts classrooms around the country.
One of the most obvious cases of liberal outrage came after the Supreme Court made their logical decision on the Hobby Lobby case earlier this year. From out of the woodwork came every idiotic progressive, weeping in the streets because the evil Christians won one. But that’s only one of their most visible campaigns. They were also at the forefront of the Obamacare debate, loudly bragging that the socialist healthcare program would force insurance companies to charge men and women the same price regardless of their gender. Isn’t that great for America, they asked.
Uh, no. Not really. Because insurance prices should be – and will be, regardless of legislation – determined by market forces. Women simply make more use of their health insurance. They go to the doctor much more often than men. Lefties probably see that statement as somehow sexist, as if merely pointing out differences in men and women is akin to claiming that men are better. That’s not the case at all. It’s a numbers game and nothing more. Liberals, when pinned down to the facts, don’t have a leg to stand on. That’s why they rarely trade in them.
Liberals Hate Facts
For some reason, progressives have yet to tackle the inequality in car insurance and life insurance. Where are the Debbie Wasserman-Shultzes of the world when it comes to the great disparities in cost on those two fronts? Oh, because men pay more for car and life insurance, everything’s fine. And everything is fine! Men get in more automobile accidents and they die sooner than women. It’s the numbers, stupid.
There was a time when it was permissible to get caught up in these ridiculous debates. After all, that’s politics. But that time is – at least temporarily – over with. We are faced with the unpleasant certainty of another military campaign in the Middle East, a campaign that is almost certainly not going to go as smoothly as President Obama would like us to believe. The time for frivolities like this imaginary war on women is behind us. It’s time to get serious as a country. Politicians and commentators who continue to harp on this issue need to be cast aside as irrelevant.
