Last time I checked the only person who spoke for me, was me. Against my better judgement, let's get to it.
Sorry...but Rush is the mouthpiece of "conservatism"...if you don't like him speaking for you...stop calling yourself a "conservative". By
labeling yourself a "conservative"...you are allowing a whole lot of people to speak for you.
If you are a self described "conservative"...and the majority of "conservatives" hold this position....then yes...you are going to be effected
when I talk about "conservatives". If you don't like it...stop calling yourself a "conservative"...and then when I talk about
"conservatives"...you can be relieved that I'm not speaking for you
So if you have a problem with it...drop the label from yourself...don't ask me not to speak the truths about "conservatives".
First of all, birth control is a personal choice. Not a human right . The problem here is, that Government is involved in health insurance to
begin with. They should not be. They have no right to be, and they have no business involving themselves in it. Get Government out of the way, and
there will be some company who sees this issue as a way to get more customers and they will offer birth control as part of their policy.
Birth control is a health issue...we all know Republicans and Conservatives like to be in womens pants to make decisions for them...but you really
have no place.
On the other hand...Government absolutely has the right to be involved in the regulation of health insurance.
I love your argument though...it's so naive. Tell me...why hasn't an insurance company already done this if you are so certain they will if
"government gets out of the way".
The issue here is that Government is involved in marriage. Fact is "marriage" is a religious issue. It is a religious ceremony that consist
of two people making an agreement with God to spend their lives together and be faithful to one another. THE ONLY reason this is even an issue is
because of what marriage means in terms of taxes. Married people can file head of household and get tax breaks while single people can not. Married
people get plenty of deductions, that single people do not get. The only people who argue the issue of gay marriage, which is exactly what your post
is describing gay marriage and not just being a homosexual, is the religious. Normal everyday people do not care one bit about this issue. As far as
the majority are concerned, we don't care who you marry.
Marriage is not soley a religous issue. Everyone who gets married, needs to get an official marriage license from the state. It's not only a tax
issue, it's a next of kin issue, it's legal rights issue, it's a health insurance issue.
To say it is "just a religous issue" is either being ignorant of the situation or trying to side step the issue.
There is a difference between help and entitlement. Just handing out money because someone is out of work is foolish. If you really want to
help people, you will give them welfare to help them out and you will give them job training so hopefully they will not have to fall on hard times
again. Interestingly enough, it is Conservatives who usually mention job training and the liberals who fight that.
I have no problem with that...but that's gonna cost some big $$$...and we all know the conservatives won't let us tax their precious rich
Seems you have walked yourself into a bit of a pickle.
This is a flat out lie. No one has said close the boarders and do not allow immigrants in. The problem and the issue here is what to do with
the millions of people who already came here illegally and have been here for years. The majority Conservative view is to deport those who can here
illegally, let them get in line, and come back in a legal fashion.
Yeah...and who cares if they have US citizen children...you know...those "anchor babies". Guess will just have to change the constitution to get
rid of those despicable "anchor babies" so we can deport their asses too. Oh...and they better speak english too and eat burgers and love
baseball...how dare they want to celebrate their culture.
Don't bury your head in the sand...Conservatives have their own entitlement issue...they feel entitled to be the only ones that are blessed enough to
be US citizens. And if you don't look like them damnit...then you get the hell out of our country that we stole from the natives.
If what I say makes you feel uncomfortable...maybe you should think about the label you have hung on yourself...or maybe you should reflect on your
view of the situation. Just a thought.
