FT144: “The longer a woman stays single the longer she may vote Democrat.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Married Women appear to be just as Interested in Sex, Birth Control and Cancer Screening as Single Women

By now we’ve all heard about how single women voted for Democrat President Obama more than they did for Republican Mitt Romney.  And how married women voted for Republican Mitt Romney more than they did for Democrat President Obama.  People are furiously debating why this happened.  This is a question Bill O’Reilly tried to get an answer from liberal Democrat guests on his show The O’Reilly Factor.  Why two women the same age with similar backgrounds vote differently based on their marital status.  The answers he got generally fell back to the war on women meme.

The war on women basically says Republicans don’t care about issues important to women.  Birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.  Which didn’t really answer the question.  For married women and single women are both women.  Who should both care about these women’s issues equally.  But they don’t.  If it’s these women’s issues that drove single women to vote for President Obama then apparently married women don’t care about birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.  Based on the average family size of 2.62 children in 2010 it would appear that married women are using birth control.  Or abortion.  Who no doubt want to screen for cancer so they can be there to see their children grow up.  And see their grand children.  Or else they’re only having sex to procreate.  Losing all interest in sex once they marry.  Of course the booming sales of Fifty Shades of Grey, often dubbed mommy porn, says otherwise.

So married women appear to be just as interested in sex as single women.  So the women’s issues (birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.) should be just as important to them as they are to single women.  So there has to be something else that differentiates single women from married women.  And that can only be that there are other issues that are even more important to married women than these issues that are so important to single women.

There is a Lot of Evidence out there that Despite the Women’s Movement a lot of Women still Want to Marry

Feminists launched the women’s movement to free women from the hell of wedded bliss.  To let them do whatever men did.   To have a career.  And to have a lot of indiscriminate sex.  Which was the purpose of the birth control pill.  Allowing the hippie love-ins of the Sixties and Seventies.  Freeing women from being second-class citizens.  Stuck at home raising a bunch of kids, cleaning house, cooking and satisfying the disgusting sexual needs of their husbands.  For that was all marriage was.  And is.  Unless you’re gay.  Then it’s a beautiful expression of love between two people.  But for heterosexual women marriages is just awful.  According to the feminists.  For men are pigs.  And always will be.  Of course, it’s a lot easier for men to be pigs these days thanks to the women’s movement.  For they can love and leave a lot more women that they once could thanks to birth control.

So are women happy?  Is this what they want?  To be free from the hell of wedded bliss?  Probably not.  For the brides magazines still sell well.  There are reality shows about brides picking out their dresses.  Some of which costs tens of thousands of dollars.  Celebrity women spend even more.  And like marriage so much that some marry, divorce and marry again.  There are reality shows where women compete against other women to win the affections of a man to marry.  And a reality show where men compete compete against other men to win the affections of a woman to marry.  There are online dating sites that advertise that their matches end in more marriages than the competition.  People still go to singles’ meeting places seeking their future significant other.  And a lot of women complain that the men they date don’t want to get married and raise a family.  As many of them seem more interested in loving and leaving as many women as possible.  Greatly distressing women as their biological clocks tick away.  Wanting to get married before it’s too late to have children.  So there is a lot of evidence out there that despite the women’s movement a lot of women still want to marry.

Women who suffer marriage infidelity are not happy women.  While they may date men who are dating a lot of women and enjoying a lot of sex with these different women obviously expect that behavior to cease once married.  And rightly so.  But some men can’t seem to control themselves.  In part because of the women’s movement.  Which has encouraged women to use birth control and empower herself by enjoying life.  Like a man.  Doing what you want.  When you want.  One of the problems of that, though, is that it tells a lot of men that there are a lot of women out there empowering themselves.  Women that men think just want consequence-free sex.  Which is okay for these women empowering themselves.  But these men?  They’re nothing but a bunch of pigs with only one thing on their minds.  And it isn’t getting married and raising a family.  Or being faithful to their wives.

Liberals know how Women change their Voting Habits once they Marry so they help Women Remain Single

It’s clear that women want to get married.  And want to have children.  Even celebrities are proudly showing off their baby bumps in the tabloids during their pregnancies.  Suggesting that marriage and motherhood are things that women want.  And little girls’ dreams of meeting their Prince Charming and having a big wedding don’t fade with time.  For when they become women they start buying those brides magazines.  Planning their big day.  They look forward to wedded bliss.  And after they’re married if the passion fades it doesn’t mean their sexual desires fade. At least not based on the massive sales of that mommy porn.  Fifty Shades of Grey.  And with the average family size down to 2.62 children in 2010 these married women are using birth control or getting abortions.  And probably don’t want cancer.

So there isn’t a lot of difference between single women and married women.  At least when it comes to these women’s issues.  Yet they voted differently.  Why?  Well, there’s the obvious.  Single women support themselves, are not raising a family and typically don’t own a house.  While married women typically have a working spouse, are raising a family and live in a house.  So what does that mean?  Married women have greater expenses and pay property taxes.  So they are a lot more sensitive to taxes.  Deficit spending.  And debt.  Because they have to be very sensitive to spending and debt in their households.  And married women tend to base their decisions on what’s best for their children.  And their grandchildren.  Whereas single women tend to base their decisions on what’s best for them.  Because they are the only ones they are providing for.  Of course, once they marry and start raising a family that all changes.  Which brings us to another reason that is perhaps not as obvious.

Liberals know how women change their voting habits once they marry.   Which hurts their hold on power.  As liberals make up only about 21% of the population.  While conservatives make up about 42% of the population.  With moderates make up the remaining 37%.  Which requires liberals to patch together a coalition of special interest groups to advance their agenda.  And part of their strategy is getting as many women as possible to vote Democrat.  And one very successful way of doing that is by helping women remain single.  To try and suppress their dreams of that fairy tale wedding they’ve had since they were little girls as long as possible.  Or to destroy it.  By making birth control and abortion readily available.  So they can have a career.  And satisfy their sexual desires.  With no need of settling down with, or settling for, a husband.  For those whose birth control fail the government steps in to provide for these single mothers.  To help them raise their children as single women.  To discourage them from getting married.  All the while scaring them that Republicans will take away all of their financial support.  Forcing them onto the streets.  Or into a marriage.  And the only way to prevent that from happening is, of course, by voting Democrat.  And staying single.  Which is what liberals want.  For the longer a woman stays single the longer she may vote Democrat.

Expressing Conservatism Poorly loses the 2012 Election for Republicans

Posted by PITHOCRATES - November 8th, 2012

Politics 101

Few Liberal Women would want their Daughter appearing in Playboy after all they did to Empower Women

After the massive Republican gains in the 2010 midterm elections Peggy Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Americans voted for maturity.  That is, the grownups voted and got their way.  While in 2012 it would appear the children voted and got their way.  More free stuff.  Regardless of the consequences of more massive deficit spending.

Children want their parents to buy them everything they desire.  And the parents have to say no.  Because most parents just don’t have the money to buy their children everything they want.  They have to make difficult spending decisions because of their limited income.  Children don’t understand this.  They just want their stuff.  It takes time for children to grow up and understand they can’t have everything.  This usually sets in when they start working and raising a family.  Until they do, though, they still want things without regard to their costs.  Which is why the Democrats go after the youth vote.  Before they start voting for maturity.

Young people often make errors in judgment.  Because they’re young.  Krysten Ritter who plays Chloe in Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 did a modeling job when she was 15 that she felt later was inappropriate for someone her age.  In a Playboy interview she said, “At the time I didn’t think about it, because kids don’t. They say your brain doesn’t develop fully until you’re 25. When kids do crazy stuff, it’s because they really are crazy. I just wasn’t aware; I had no fear. But I have not one single regret or feeling of resentment, because of where I am now. I have a good head on my shoulders. I learned all my lessons on my own.”  Kind of an odd thing to publish in a Playboy interview considering that a lot of the women appearing in Playboy are under 25 years old.  Who do crazy stuff.  Like objectifying themselves for money.  And voting Democrat.  For most women appearing in Playboy probably vote Democrat.  Even though few liberal women would want their daughter appearing in Playboy after all they did to empower women so they could build a career.  So they didn’t have to use their sexuality to earn a living.  Or to find a husband.  But when these kids grow up and get a good head on their shoulders they can learn their lessons.  And go on to great success.

Young Single Women were Voting Against their Future Married/Mature Selves

The Obama campaign successfully turned young single women away from Mitt Romney.  By saying that Romney would take away their birth control.  And their access to abortion.  Something they believed.  And it wasn’t just their birth control and access to abortion they were worried about.  Some liberals took to Twitter after President Obama won the election saying that they were relieved as they didn’t have to hoard tampons with the Romney defeat.  As well as birth control pills.  Don’t know how many or how serious they were.  But some were saying that.  For they believed a Republican administration would take women back to Victorian times.  Denying them everything except having babies, cooking and cleaning.

Meanwhile married women favored Romney.  Not by as large a margin as single women favored President Obama.  But a majority.  The difference being that maturity.  Married women raising children care more about how high taxes increase their cost of living.  How the growing federal debt will affect their children’s future.  How the high cost of gasoline is consuming more of the family budget.  And raising the cost of food.  That is, they are thinking like a grownup.  And as a grownup birth control pills, abortion and tampons are not high on their list of concerns.  For they were there since the Sixties.  When women empowered themselves.  And there have been a few Republican administrations since then.  Other things are more important to them.  Like making the mortgage payment.  Paying for braces for their children.  And taking care of an elderly parent.  Things few women think about until after the age of 25.  So basically young single women were voting against their future married/mature selves.

This is something that the younger generation doesn’t understand.  The generation they are voting/rebelling against?  It’s not a fixed constant throughout time.  The older people today were once the younger generation of a previous time.  And a lot of them voted/rebelled against the older generation then like the younger generation is today.  Just as many in the younger generation will become the very people they bitterly oppose today.  This doesn’t change.  The rift between the grownups and the children.  Just the people in these generations change.  And as they mature and grow wiser more responsibility and less having fun fills their days.  And they vote accordingly.

Hispanic Families are little different from the 1950s American Nuclear Family

President Obama got 71% of the Hispanic vote.  He did similarly well with Asians.  A common conclusion is that the Republicans lost these voters because of Romney’s more ‘extreme’ position on immigration than Governor Perry during the primary election.  And for using insensitive language like ‘illegals’ and ‘amnesty’.  Which may have turned Hispanics and Asians away from Romney.  While others say that a lot of these immigrants are here only for the free ride.  And will vote for the party that offers the most free stuff.  The Democrat Party.  And, yes, there may be some truth to that.  But those who are here for the free stuff are probably a small percentage of the total.  For most of these immigrants have strong conservative values.  Who don’t seek handouts.

The Hispanics breaking the law to come here are doing it to find work.  So they can provide for their families.   And will take some of the hardest and lowest paying jobs to provide for their families.  Working long hours in some of the most grueling conditions.  So their kids can have a better life.  Their labors and sacrifices for their family sustained by a deep religious faith.  A strong Catholic faith.  That respects life.  And opposes abortion.  Making Hispanic families little different from the 1950s American nuclear family.  And the Asian family is as strong as the Hispanic family.  Who work as hard so their kids can have a better life.  And their kids work hard and sacrifice, too.  Graduating college at the top of their class.  And this while taking the hard program degrees.  Not film.  Or gender studies.

So a good portion of President Obama’s voters seem to be conservative.  Or will become conservative over time.  Which means Romney didn’t lose the election because the nation is becoming more liberal.  He lost it because he did not articulate conservatism well enough.  Unlike Ronald Reagan.  Who did such a good job of explaining conservative policies (reducing costly regulations, lowering tax rates, keeping inflation from raising gas and food prices, etc.) that even Democrats saw that their lives would improve under these policies.  And they voted Republican.  Becoming Reagan Democrats.  If conservatives articulate these policies well enough they should appeal to the conservative values of Hispanics.  Asians.  Even single women.  Who eventually learn there is more to life than birth control, abortion and tampons.  But only if conservatives communicate this well.  Which Romney didn’t.  As proven by a lower turnout of Republicans than John McCain got in 2008.  In an election that was far easier to win.  As the Obama economy was little different from the Carter economy.  Allowing Ronald Reagan to sweep into office thanks to those Reagan Democrats.  Who understood his conservative message.  And liked it.
