In Griswold vs. Connecticut the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that the use of contraceptives could not be prohibited by any State and that is was a private matter protected by the clause in the 14th Amendment. The use of contraceptives is a personal decision granted to American citizens.
In Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court made it clear that abortion is a personal decision and a woman’s right and should be made between a woman and her Doctor.
The Conservative movement in America is screaming about Government being in the bedroom but in truth it is they who have filed case after case with Conservative judges to the point that the number of cases in the Court system are backlogged when it comes to their attempts to control sex and birth control in America. They are spending today and tomorrow at their annual meeting to firm up their decision to who can best control us as a Nation.
The Conservatives constant interference into the private rights of American citizens should be a concern to all of us, as it boils down to a bunch of white males or “Good Old Boys” and 33% of the American population, who have become so involved into denying the private rights of American citizens, to the point they have lost all touch with reality in most cases.
Their lack of respect for the Constitution and Supreme Court that grants the private rights of women and gays has made them totally disrespectful towards both. They are telling both women and gays that we do not have a right to enjoy the freedom granted us by law and under the Constitution of America. In their back rooms they practice bigotry and hate towards other nationalities and beliefs, in the most bigoted manner, while they deny that prejudice exist in America.
It is this hate in them along with their obsession over the sexual act itself that is destroying the Democracy that we all have a right to enjoy. All four candidates running on the Republican ticket are leaning so far right as to curry the favor of the Conservatives to the point they are making a mockery out of our Constitution and the Supreme Court that was given the clear power to grant us the rights of Freedom to choose for ourselves.
When a couple of Catholic Bishops complained that Religious rights had never been so stepped on by President OBama it was nothing more than the same old smoke screen thrown up every time that the Christian Churches in America become concerned that their right to control women is slipping.
Since 98% of sexually active Catholics use birth control and since the Church cannot force them to not use it, they are trying to force government to ban all contraception used by women, and in the process, deny all women their Constitutional right to their own health issues.
It is Religion interfering into government while President OBama is insisting that women’s healthcare needs are as important as men’s. In Griswold vs. Connecticut it is specifically spelled out that no State under the 14th amendment can deny women the coverage of insurance for contraception.
Since our forefathers clearly formed the Constitution making both separation of Church and State law as well as the decisions of the Supreme Court the last law of the land including over Religion, then it is religion that is transgressing over the law of separation of Church and State in their efforts to force government to abide by their teachings.
Pro choice is not pro abortion but instead the choice of women to determine their own health issues. The Churches promote the label of pro-choice being pro abortion when it is instead the right of women to ensure The Equal Rights Amendment that guarantees women the right to make decisions on their own bodies and health issues. It is not only abortion that the Churches are fighting against as it is the use of all contraception by women, through forcing the government to do what they cannot do in their own Churches, they are clearly trying to usurp the authority of our Constitution and Supreme Court decisions.
We experienced the same thing with labeling by the Conservative attacks against the liberals during the McGovern years. Since then the word Liberal or Progressive has been held in the same position and demonized as a product of Satan, amongst the Conservatives; To think that in the year 2012,anyone who wanted to advance the cause of women, gays and minorities would be branded as sinner and destructive towards Religious rights, blows the minds of most free thinking and rational people.
I have already reported 28 States have already made in mandatory that Religious Institutions provide contraception for women. The largest Catholic University in America. Depaul University, along with numberous other Catholic Hospitals and Universities have always provided for contraception.
In their efforts to defeat President OBama and swing the vote back to their candidate of choice, Rick Santorum, they threw up a smoke screen to win and control the elections in the swing States and called out the Evangelicals to assist, and it worked for them. The truth is they do not like Mitt Romney as they think that the Mormon Religion is a cult and not a member of Christianity. Personally, I believe he is every bit as destructive to our right to be free as all the other candidates, as he too claims to do away with contraception. It is banned already in the Mormon Church.
If we have ever been raised Christian then we all know that we are born with an automatic defense system to protect the Church. That is because we are brain washed into believing from almost “day one” that the Church has always been under attack since the day of Christ. We take a Sacrament to protect the Church in some cases, so we become defensive anytime we hear anyone speak against it, even when others know what is being said is nothing more than the simple truth. they have come to rely on that when shoving their candidate of choice onto the American voters.
This is true in most other religions as well. Christianity survived because of the women after Christ death and Resurrection and it was the women of the Church who gave alms to the poor and established much of what would draw Pagans to the Christian Church. that has been lost in the teachings of too many, today.
The need to control women and gays has never been greater than what it is today, across America,by the Conservatives to the point it has reached the point of a sick obsession. Rick Santorum would convince all Americans that the 40% of Americans who are single or from single family homes, are all nothing but losers, and therefore not worthy of the Constitutional rights of the perfect family that consist of both Mom and Dad in a home where the couple are married.
When a candidate like Rick Santorum is their candidate of choice in the year 2012, we can begin to worry until we realize that worry is not necessary when we realize that we are rational and aware. If he is President he has said he will ban the use of all contraception because the libertine movement of women and the use of contraception is just plain wrong. How he plans on doing that with the Supreme Court being the last law of the land, he does not say.
Rick Santorum has also said that gay sex is not same person sex but man on dog sex. He like Michelle Bachman, another Tea Party favorite, would point missiles towards Iran without the use of sanctions or diplomacy. He claims that President OBama is protecting Iran to attack Israel. Clearly this man does not plan to lead by putting the Equality of Americans, truth, or common sense, above his own bigoted views of hate. We are looking at a very disturbed mind indeed, and the people who would vote for such a person are equally disturbed, in my estimation.
Although the polls show that these same 33% of women oppose the use of contraception the other 58% of women believe it to be our own personal right, since it is, and has been established in the Supreme Court. The great majority of us would like to think that if we were being denied our rights of equality we would make certain that the person trying to deny us the same would not be the person we would elect to office of the President.
This seems to go right over the head of some women when they are told to vote their conscience. Unless we have been brainwashed ourself, we cannot possibly understand why women do constantly vote against their own best interests and for inequality, without being made to feel guilty when they do get the courage to do the right thing for all Americans, and demand their own God-given as well as State given right to free will and equality.
It flys into the face of all of us who use our brains to rationalize, that Trump would promote the Birther Belief that these 33% of our population still cling to, when they firmly believe that President Barack OBama is a Muslim and not a citizen of the United States. That is until we realize that Trump is the Master of Paper Capitalism, that got our economy into the mess it is in. Without backing the Birther belief, he stands to lose the Republican support of getting banks to loan him money without collateral or assets to back it. This 33% are being held hostage by the greedy in the Conservative Party, from this brainwashing, to the point that they are trying to remove President OBama’s name from their election ballots in Georgia.
The Republican Party, is being controlled by the Conservatives and Tea Party, and are doing their best to destroy the Democracy that has always made us Great. They believe that their own personal need to control humanity is more recognizable and entitled, than the right granted each of us under the Constitution and the Supreme court.They will not be stopped until they appoint their own judges that will deny all minorities, gays and women equality in America, while promoting their causes.
The Conservative Party, joined by the Tea Party, within the Republican Party in America today,is nothing more than a bunch of Rednecks and Bullies in Suits, who plan to keep their woman in place. The Republicans are arrogant enough to think they, not the working poor or the middle class, have the right to keep us subjugated to them, through lowering our standards of living and denying us both the Unions that protect our wages and working conditions, while they eliminate the Government Departments that protect our rights and offer us jobs.
The Conservatives can be likened to a bunch of people who go out and eat an expensive meal which they may pay $300.00 a person for, and then come home and try to deny the baby sitter the $10.00 that she has earned by giving her $6.50 instead. They feel that they are the entitled amongst us and therefore they have a right to deny the rest of us our just due.
They have taken their religious convictions into the political arena to the point their real and only political zeal in to deny the rest of us both our God-given rights as well as our State given rights. When we are told it is a matter of conscience, what they really mean, it is a matter of conscience as long as we agree with their interpretation of the same. When we don’t, they will do everything in their power to pass laws and to block us from the equality that is our right to own.
Since the Conservative base only makes up a third of our Nation,but they have to throw up more smoke screens to upset us as a Nation and use their politicians, such as Boehner to yell louder about the injustices of President Obama against Religious rights, while they block legislation to improve the lives of small businesses, the working poor, and the middle class. The Republican Party itself has grown to 70% of Conservatives, in the last 10 years and that explains the ruination of the Republican Party to get any agreement on anything.
All this hate is to convince Americans the Conservatives and Tea Party base, are the moral majority with the right to control the lives of the rest of us. Sadly, they instead are promoting hate through their sick obsession to control the human race on their terms, and by denying all of us both our God given as well as our State given rights to free will and the pursuit of happiness, while calling President OBama dangerous.
It is time we stop all the upset and drama being created by the Conservatives and Tea Party, so we can get back to solving the problems that our wounded Nation needs us to do, by electing those Democrats who will work for us, and with our President that we elect. Make sure before you do that you check their voting record out, as 20% of the Democratic Party are Conservative, as well as, a few lean so left that they create stunned growth as well.
We Americans always have been and always will be the strongest, without these Redneck Bullies trying to control our lives and destroying our freedoms. We need to eliminate their little band of thugs, at the election polls in November.
