Obama won in 2012 largely on the premise of a war against women and them not having access to free birth control.
Now they have it with Obamacare.
So either you're saying ObamaCare is a failure because poor women still can't get them or there wasn't a war on women because they didn't want birth control in the first place.
Which is it?
Poor women, and men, and children, often do not have any money, food, shelter or transportation ..... thus your question tends to ignore this.

Unlike some of the other posters, you do seem to occasionally realize that many people are poor.

"You liberals are what's wrong..." not everyone who disagrees with you is liberal.
Supreme Court restricted BC in Hobby Lobby case but still upholds abortion in the US...thus not states rights issue.
Libertarian wing of your party is pro gay and pro abortion. Ask whats-his-name
peace
Conservatives are tolerant of gays and both sides have their own beliefs about redefining the definition of marriage. Not all conservatives are pro life. They have the right to be pro choice if they choose.

But it's the intolerance on the left towards anyone who doesn't share the exact same views of abortion (the killing of life) and drastically changing society by redefining the definition of marriage and - more importantly - condoning abortions to 14-year-olds without their parent's knowledge - is when wrong becomes right and right becomes wrong in the liberal mind.

And that's what's wrong with this country.

You liberals are what's wrong with this country This mentality is so screwed up. It's mindboggling the country has come to such a warped view of right and wrong.
Because there is no wrong in the liberal mind.

Most staters require parental consent for those under 18. Most of those have an option to go before a judge to avoid parental notification.

Extremely unfortunate. But his Mormonism was a drawback and neither of us can deny that fact even though we both voted for him - twice...I'm just assuming you did too.

He would have been a great leader regardless of his personal beliefs. Hopefully, these "evangelicals" have learned their lesson.

I would have voted for Giuliani if he had been the frontrunner and he was pro choice. He, too, would have been a great leader. Sometimes you have to look past the ideal and see what's best for the country as a whole. Abortion isn't going to just disappear overnight because of a pro life or pro choice president.

Most Christians know this. Not sure about these "evangelicals".

Lily loves the unjustified, incorrect use of the race card.

Then she proceeds to chastise others for what her party started.

The left downright lied about Bush and Clinton/Gore were the very first presidents to openly demean a sitting president by badmouthing his policies, while on foreign soil no less.

Lily and the other libtarded morons here certainly are hypocrites and Blind Melon Chitlins for sure.

DOH!

Did I use the word Chitlins?

Now I'm certain the thread moron DumbDave will chime in I'm a racist!

Have a few more minutes. But your post gives me an opportunity to share this story.

My daughter's friend worked for the government and took applications for food stamps and government assistance. There were strict guidelines as to who can and who cannot qualify.

She would almost break down in tears sometimes because people who were really poor, hungry and homeless and were begging for help didn't qualify while others who owned fancy cars did.

This system is broken. If it's not fixed and there isn't reform soon, all of the bleeding hearts in the world won't help those who really need it.

Everyone wants their tax dollars to help those who are really in need. Almost everyone.

But food and shelter, I would think, is more important than birth control. Especially when anyone can walk into Planned Parenthood supposedly and get them for free already.

Surely, you would agree.

Now that Hobby Lobby can mandate what their employees do with their health care I guess they will also mandate what they do on their vacation and with their holiday bonus's

Hobby Lobby will mandate what their employees eat since they spend "their" paycheck on food~ No Soup For You~

Eating red meat is against Hobby Lobby's religion SOooooo...No Burger King for if you work for Hobby Lobby....You are spending the pay check they provide you with so they can mandate what you do with it....

The Supreme Court has lost their collective minds....their latest ruling sets a terrible president against FREEDOM! and a citizens right to chose what's best for THEM!

Not one of my conservative froiends have a "fat" problem, but every one I know that if a leftard is fat.

You might be skinny, but that is due to your addiction to hard liquor.

But, yes, Galt, it really is extremely unfortunate that some people can't see the bigger picture despite their personal beliefs and a great leader like Romney slipped through our fingers.

However, he, himself, was responsible for letting several golden opportunities slip through his own fingers in two of the debates.

You can't blame that on anyone else but him. Like O'Reilly said, Romney just didn't want it bad enough...it was his for the taking.

I kind of have to agree with him.
