I feel very strongly that we have to attack the Republicans and expose them where their stand alienates most women, and that is about their right to choice. I keep looking for our candidates to continue bringing this up, to make them look stupid in justifying this stance. They have to do it.
Choice is a traumatic time in a woman’s life even without government interference. We have to do it too, because we have to let them know this problem confronts all women. Women will be faced with a new problem, if the Republicans win. That is, their choice could lead them into breaking the law. Does anyone remember those times?
The other area where we can take away votes is the lead from the Moral Majority to force religious teachings into our schools. Whose religion would they teach? We should force the Republicans into the open on that. Our country has stood up for everyone’s right to satisfy their need to pray as they wished. It can’t be done if we let Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson and their ilk lead the way in school prayer. The separation of church and state is a main reason for the success of our democracy. Thus far our government has not been allowed to force a single way of worshipping on the diversity of its people.
With the diversity in worship so prevalent, we can really, using the right tactic, force these religious zealots out into the open. We can expose their intent to use public money to force their religion onto our kids. It just is not the American way. The confidence the Republicans have in their power to control their people spills over into daring to challenge the Constitution of the United States.
What worries me is that the Republican Party, contrary to what they say, will bring more government, not less, into our lives.
I really believe if we expose these two philosophies of the Republican Party, with real emphasis, they will do themselves in.
