this is the first time, that i know of, where the VP nomination has made such a big difference in the Presidential election.
the Democrats picked that old stiff Biden and the Republicans, in a brilliant political move, picked Sarah Palin.
basically the election was over at that moment.
Sarah Palin will pick up a lot of votes for the Republican party for many different reasons.
i don't see McCain losing this election unless something catastrophic happens.
basically the Republicans beat the liberals at their own game.
even my liberal left-wing extremist father said he's sick of seeing the Democrats get "out maneuvered" by the Republicans
so why do they hate Palin?
because the left-wing has spent many years and endless effort painting the "conservavtives" AKA the nationalists as Chauvanists.
( the word "Chauvanist" originally was an attack on nationalism)
since the early days of the "women's movement" and organizations like the ACLU, people with socialist/communist/marxist political views have been hiding in the shadows trying to gain power in a nation that has overwhelmingly rejected those foreign forms of totalitarian government.
these people push their agenda which often conflicts with the near-perfect U.S. Constitution.
the ideas of limits to who votes in a "democracy" is nothing new, as a matter of fact the Romans who were the first on record for trying to create a working "democracy" knew that the voting privialage had to be limited to a selected few.
it was usually one vote per land owning family,WHO ATTENDED POLITICAL RALLYS ON A REGULAR BASIS, usually done by the male, it's just the tradition.
...to assume that women had no influence is pure ignorance.
along come our American socialist friends who criminalize the whole issue.
do you think the socialists were concerned with "women's rights" or was it that fact that if they could win the women's right to vote, and get women to jump on board with their Marxist looneyism they would have an instant 50% control of America?
women's right to vote is granted by the U.S. Constitution, not the socialists.
it's the left-wing that views women as ignorant.
they take their anti-Constituional totalitarianism and roll it up into a heart-felt tear-jerking piece of propaganda.
'a kitten was hit by a stray bullet, if you don't want to abolish the 2nd Amendment, then you don't care about that kitten'
they feel that there will be a larger percent of women who fall for that crap then there will be men.
i'm not saying i'm against women's right to vote, but it didn't end there.
the left-wing has always recruited foreigners, who never heard of George Washington,
they recruit prisoners,
first time voters,
now they want to lower the voting age to 14.
what does that say about their form of politics when they recruit everyone who knows nothing about the subject?
do you think they really care about the blacks?
the left-wing has been running the public schools in the black communities for 60 years, and is producing the largest amount drop-outs in their history,
but when election time rolls around, they expect their vote.
and when someone black is a Republican, the insults come out, calling Rice and Judge Thomas "tokens".
their big woman's issue is abortion.
they want women to fight against gun rights,
this is something the socialists want, this isn't something that's good for women.
how about the massive international prostitution slave trade, you rarely ever hear these women's leaders talk about.
how about , why we send money countries that throw women into prostitution by the time they're 12.
how about, asking what is happening to all the missing children right here in the USA, that no one seems to care about.
women's groups should be protecting the children of America, not fighting for abortion.
women are gaining full "equality" , pretty soon they'll be busting their a$$ is a non-paying job,just like all of us men are.
the rich socialists don't want to hear that half of their potential work force is at home taking care of children.
...and i don't believe all this garbage about women receiving less money than men for the same jobs,
there's ten thousand lawyers standing by ready to sue any company where this can be proven.
if it can't be proven then where are they getting these statistics?
when Palin was selected as a VP running mate, the media knew the Democrats were "out maneuvered".
Palin's women's voting base is much larger than Obama's black voting base.
the only thing they can do is trash her and try to make women think of reasons not to vote for here.
the media is being absolutly ruthless about Palin, who they consider a traitor.
they grill Palin on questions like they have never done to any "respected" candidate.
right now the left-wing is desperate, and the whole thing is going to backfire on them.
