Many single women,
a key bloc, are avoiding GOP

Associated Press, by Nicholas Riccardi

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/15/2012 10:33:16 AM

DENVER- Sara Stevenson spends her working hours surrounded by Republicans, namely the married men who work alongside her in a Denver oil and gas firm company. But after hours and on weekends, she usually spends her time with other single women, and there´s not a Republican in sight among the bunch. "There was just no way I could have supported any Republican this year," said Stevenson, 31. "They skew so much to the religious right. ... They focused so much on taxes. It´s not something that women in my demographic really care about. I´ve never heard my friends lament

As a woman I hate to say this, but most women are very shallow. Have you ever seen a woman carry on about a broken finger nail? Have you ever been to a gathering where you try to have an intelligent conversation about a topic of the day and find women disinterested? I know that I am stereotyping, but this has been my experience amongst so called educated women; Oy!

When will I be given the choice to vote for a candidate who is a social liberal and a fiscal conservative? It seems that if I want fiscal responsibility in government that I have to also accept the morality and pronouncements of the religious right.

I agree with #1. Plus many young single women need abortion as a back-up plan, government provided, preferably.

"There are just so many off-putting comments from the Republican party," Stevenson said. "It´s crazy to me that they´re still acting as if women are a niche market."

Aren´d Dems, AP and the rest of the media doing the same thing?

#6 is absolutely correct and that Stevenson does not know this is sad evidence that many single women are "low information" voters. Note I did not say "all", just many. Democrats invented, honed and routinely employ identity politics, as does the MSM. If you are a single woman and think you are not identified, bundled and objectified as a quantified entity by the Democratic Party, you have a lot of intellectual catching up to do. It boils down to paying attention, not to what you may feel is interesting, but to what is important. You are going to have contraceptives if you need them, whether you buy them or the government does. You are not going to have anything - job, savings and contraceptives - unless the government gets deficit spending and the national debt under control, boring or not.

I would like to think that there is a way to promote fiscal sanity (we´re miles and miles from conservatism in this country!) and societal sanity (again we´re miles and miles away from any kind of conservatism) that isn´t off-putting to single women.

I am trying to understand what more the electorate could want. Maybe we argue "sustainability". We must have safety nets that are sustainable.

Or maybe they won´t be happy until they have all of my money.

Would an appeal to fairness reach them? Or do they then just say they want my money "for someone else"?

Sara Stevenson is only 31. These days you can reach the age of 31, and still be young and foolish.

She still has her head stuffed full of Leftist bilge. She probably went to public school, followed by a Leftist college.

It took me until the ripe old age of 30 to become a conservative, and at that point, I´d had the benefit of being married and having children. Those things made me grow up.

So there is hope for Sara, but not if she continues to choose a "Sex and the City" lifestyle, condemning herself to a lonely and bitter end.

The Millennial Generation simply refuses to grow up.

I would love to meet the woman who is quoted as saying she doesn´t want a family, isn´t ready to be responsible for children. I´d tell her that it is fine that she doesn´t start a family yet but it isn´t fine that she expects me to be her safety net. If you´re not ready to care for others, that´s okay but she´s old enough to be responsible for her own life.

Who raised these pathetic losers?

Very good posts here, but I wish that the more libertarian minded like poster #2 would come to understand that fiscal conservatism and social conservatism are inextricably intertwined, politics notwithstanding. People who are clueless or undisciplined in their personal behaviors have created a society which is increasingly dependent on government, and reflects that dependency in its voting patterns.

They don´t call the GOP the stupid party for nothing. Putting down women is about the supidist thing you could do.

The GOP should have taken the senate this year except for their stupidity in candidates. Women will never tolerate that. Learn, grow or die.

A child born to a single woman is half an orphan. If anything happens to the mother, that child has no parents. This dramatically increases risk and insecurity for the child. That child is also denied the resources and support that a father´s extended family would have offered. Half the number of uncles, aunts, and cousins. Half the number of grandparents. No division of labor between two active, committed parents. No diversity in parenting approaches between mother and father. Who among us would choose that childhood for ourselves? Who in their right mind would choose that for their child?

It´s not about what the single mother wants. It´s about what´s best for the child, and who speaks for that child. Accidents happen, misfortune abounds, and our children are hostages to fate. As a society, we need to give them every advantage we can. Voluntary single motherhood is a bad idea that places children at greater risk. That´s the point where morality and practicality coincide.

In every lunchroom in every office I ever worked in the men, regardless of education and position usually grabbed the national news section of the paper first, then the sports and then the local news. The women, regardless of education and position, almost always grabbed the lifestyle section first, then the local news and then maybe the national news.

Whether male or female, liberals tend towards emotion rather than logic. There is no proof, for instance, that more gun control would prevent tragedies like the one that happened this week or that higher taxes on "the rich" will generate more revenue or solve our economic problems. They respond to logic with name-calling.

Maybe economic issues like taxes are not important to single women because maybe they don´t pay a lot of income taxes. Most liberal young people become more "conservative" as they get older because they begin to see how much government gets from their hard work in the form of taxes. Single women don´t appear to me to be an opportunity for Republicans to win. Unless the Republicans become the Democrats then we are just one happy party and can get along together.

#2: Social liberalism and fiscal conservatism are polar opposites. You can´t be fiscally conservative, truly, and socially liberal. Fiscal conservatism is about spending money wisely on only the necessities to run government.

Social liberalism wants to dump tax dollars on ´starving artists´ and people who refuse to work....among other things....that government should never be involved in funding in the first place.

You need to choose which is more important to you: fiscal conservatism or social liberalism.

If I may offer my advice: choose fiscal conservatism so you can keep more of what you earn. That way you can donate as much of your own money as you wish to those who need it. Or you can organize others to donate as much as they would like to your cause of choice.

"Single men are also significantly more likely to back Democrats than Republicans, but that is largely a function of their age, because they are largely younger. Unmarried women, however, are more evenly spread across all age groups and consistently lean Democratic"

So, apparently the married women are polygamous heads of household with multiple husbands? Or do men just die a lot younger to avoid having to hook up with these vapid women?
Numbers, please.

It really amuses me that these single women are portrayed as "independent" strong women, when in fact they are the opposite. Instead of a husband, they are relying on the government and being dependent on it for their "safety net". The real difference is that in the case of a husband, she/they rely on their own money, while in the case of the government, they are relying on someone else´s money through taxes.

The Peter Pan syndrome doesn´t just apply to a lot of young men. Sara is a product of media brainwashing and the new ´culture.´ On the other hand the last campaign by Republicans was beyond belief. I can´t believe there isn´t some kind of organized response to the up is down DNC message, but I don´t think I´ll ever see an effective challenge from the RNC. The looming reality might teach Sara a tiny bit. We are all in for a lot of painful lessons if history is any kind of guide.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and state senator Wendy Davis cruised to victories in their respective gubernatorial primaries Tuesday and will square off in November to replace departing Gov. Rick Perry. Abbott defeated political unknowns Lisa Fritsch, Miriam Martinez and Larry Kilgore in the Republican primary.

Abbott, 56, has been attorney general since 2003 and is a former Texas Supreme Court justice. His ambitions to succeed Perry were no secret, as he spent years stockpiling more than $20 million

The D.C. Council on Tuesday approved legislation to remove criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana in the nation’s capital, joining 17 other states that have some form of decriminalization. The bill adopted on a 10-1 vote will make possession of an ounce or less of marijuana punishable by a civil fine of $25, yet preserves laws making the public smoking of marijuana a criminal offense. An initial version of the bill would have also decriminalized public smoking of the drug but council members amended the legislation at the request of Mayor Vincent C. Gray and Police Chief

It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

(2+ min. video) In remarks at the White House last week, first lady Michelle Obama cited an effort by Fairfax County high school students to promote healthier eating habits. While announcing a new initiative last Tuesday to curtail junk food marketing in public schools, Obama noted that students from Marshall High School in Fairfax had helped write a song about more nutritious meal choices. Obama said the song, called “wRap,” shows how much students care about what they eat. Obama then recited her favorite lyrics from the song: “If I’m gonna help my brain come to fruition, I’m gonna have

John Travolta didn’t have to memorize the names of all the Oscar nominees. He didn’t even have to memorize the names of all of the performers of the Best Original Song nominees since he was only introducing one of them. He didn’t even have to memorize Idina Menzel’s name. It was right there on the teleprompter. Yet here is how it came out: “Please welcome the ‘Wicked’-ly talented, one and only Adele Dazim.” Adele Dazim? Maybe it was an anagram. For flubbing 10 seconds of patter, Travolta won the Not Even Close award, though there was intense competition. The 86th Annual

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), in a new interview with Time magazine, says that President Obama made a good impression on GOP senators when he sat down to dinner with them last year. Part of the reason?

Because he is a very very articulate and attractive guy in a setting with eight or nine senators and him. Because he was smarter than the rest of us. ... But I

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

Bad Business: Apple CEO Tim Cook has told global warming skeptics to "get out of this stock." But in essence, he did more than that. He told every Apple shareholder to take a hike and waved potential investors away. When Cook met with shareholders Friday, he lost his usual business cool when a group proposed that the company be more open about its environmental activism as well as transparent about costs it incurs as it increases its dependence on renewable energy. "If you want me to do things only for ROI (return on in vestment) reasons, you should get out of this

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
