Whenever I hear stats that show women are more liberal than men, I am ashamed for my own gender which, for those who don’t know me, is female. After nearly a century of fighting for the right to be seen as equals to men, too many of us have traded subjugation in the home and the work place for subjugation of our minds and souls to a political Party whose only objective is to grow their own power. It is the worst of ironies to see women work so hard for a seat at the table in America’s boardrooms and government only to foolishly vote away their own liberty and autonomy at the ballot box.
The Democrat Party has turned women into children, or at least it’s trying to. Democrats seduce women with promises of securing special treatment and insulating them from the consequences of their own life choices (by abortion on demand, for instance), but the price is steep. The government handouts and freedom to be irresponsible are crumbs – to borrow a word from the inane Nancy Pelosi – compared to what is lost. Yes, you might get more family leave – at the expense of others – or preference over men in occupations that are male-dominated so your company can meet some arbitrary quota forced upon them by your government, or birth control subsidized by your fellow citizens; but you sacrifice the character of your country in the process. Justice is supposed to be blind, not weighted in favor of one race or gender over another. Speech is supposed to be free, not denied to those with whom we disagree. Slavery is something that we are supposed to reject, not suborn through targeted taxation. And with each passing day it gets worse. Are women so childishly shortsighted and selfish now that they will throw away the ingenious protections passed on to us all in our Constitution – at great sacrifice by our forefathers – for the scraps promised by the Democrat Party if you just help them secure the power they want? It’s demoralizing to think that this is the case, but the reality speaks for itself.
I suspect that any liberal women who have the balls to read this post (hey – you wanted to be treated like men!) will scoff and sneer that what they’ve gotten in exchange for selling us out to the Democrat Party has been worth the while because it couldn’t otherwise be attained. My response to that is: Really??? You can’t compete with men based upon your own skills and intelligence? You – strong, independent woman – can’t find a way to afford your own birth control, and you’re unwilling to personally sacrifice for the sake of raising your own family? Is this what you want us all to believe? If so, that’s truly pathetic.
I’d like to remind liberal women that George Soros is a male (only in a technical sense, of course). So is Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Tom Perez, Keith Ellison and the majority of Democrats in congress. They’ve used you to secure their own power, and Hillary Clinton tried to do so as well. You are a pawn in the Democrat’s game of chess, when you could instead be the master of your own game if only you would find the self-discipline and character to resist the temptation to get what you can at others’ expense.
Am I being too hard on liberal women? Is it possible they actually believe the Democrat Party has the pure-of-heart agenda they purport to have? To believe that is to willfully disregard the evidence. The party for “the environment” flies hither and thither in their corporate jets to their multiple homes and Martha’s Vineyard vacations, showing their true colors when it comes to environmental concern. The party for “racial equality” now talks disdainfully about “old, white men,” hobnobs unapologetically with anti-Semites like Louis Farrakhan and cheers on groups like Black Lives Matter. The party for “women’s rights” and #MeToo partied hardy with Harvey Weinstein, tried to elect for POTUS the loyal wife of a man with serious sex-related charges against him from multiple women, and the party that leaked Christine Ford’s letter to the media with zero regard for how it would affect her. That’s the reality of the Democrat Party. That’s who they are, and if you can’t see it it’s because you are choosing not to.
None of this is to say Republicans are perfect. Far from it, usually. But the critical ideals that this country was built upon – individual liberty, equal justice for all, the rule of law, free market capitalism, states’ rights, American sovereignty and autonomy – these are what must be sacrificed in order for the Democrat Party to thrive. Are we to believe that men value these gifts more than we do? If that’s the case then the “progressive” movement has failed women, because we’ve gone backwards.
