Critical reading skills, I assume you have them? Use them.
I never claimed the Democratic party was for smaller government. I merely said that the your statement "I want to vote Republican because of small government" was incorrect.
Neither does the Republican Party. Your point?
Do you want a cookie? Maybe a gold star?
Have you ever actually studied politics? Maybe actually read any of the literature on women's reproductive rights? No, of course not.
Not every woman IS
knowledgable about birth control; not all of them know how to obtain it; how it works; which forms are best to use; etc.
Yes, you're clearly for 'small goverment'. The point of small government is obviously
to force you to remain pregnant if you don't want to be.
Get off your "I'm so much better than all these other women" high horse. You're arrogant and ignorant. It's quite sad.
Maybe someone's condom broke. Maybe they were busy and forgot to take the pill. Maybe their hormonal balance was such that even with the pill, they got pregnant. etc. etc. etc.
You have wonderful observation skills?
You're not very educated on reproductive rights literature, are you?
Did you know that most people who seek government aid for reproductive issues are young people with low SES?
Did you know that studies have been done that have found when education about reproduction, as well as funding for reproductive services has been cut, the cost to the State has actually INCREASED?
No, of course you didn't know that because you've never actually read anything related to the subject and you're merely making uninformed, ignorant statements, am I correct?
Why did costs increase? Because now there are a bunch of unwanted children running around, whose mothers are on welfare because they cannot afford to support themselves and a child; or they end up in State custody because their parents did not want them.
Yes, let's stereotype these people! Of course stereotypes are correct!
Maybe they should. But that doesn't mean that you shouldn't provide them with it. Refer to my above point about how not funding such programs actually leads to MORE
expenses for the State.
No, the majority of Congress is by far made up of men. It is predominantly men who make decisions as to how you should be able to regulate your own body and your reproduction.
Limiting government also means not prohibiting marriages between members of the same sex (right to individual freedom), especially when doing as such is unconstitutional. It also means allowing people to decide whether or not they want to have a baby.
Are you actually
this completely ignorant and uneducated? Because if you are, then you are truly a prime example of what an uneducated American looks like.
There are over 2,000 rights and privileges associated with that "piece of paper" that you seem think means nothing -- including but not limited to things such as oh, I don't know, the right to visit your spouse when they are hospitalized; right to make medical decisions for a spouse; right to open a joint bank account; etc. etc. etc.
Why don't you actually educate yourself on these topics and read the available literature, because all you've done is successfully demonstrate that you have no understanding of American politics, political theory, or other relevant subject matter.
