Yes, it's political post time. It's no secret here that I've dumped the "traditional" two parties to support the Constitution Party. I still think the system is broken, and only a real shakeup will fix it. However, it's also no secret here that I'm a big fan of Mike Huckabee. It was my support of Huckabee several years ago that got this little blog its brief moment of fame as I was interviewed by news folks from St. Louis and even New York. (brag, brag, brag)
So, though it would put me in a real quandary should Huck run for President as a Republican again, I can still appreciate the guy. And I do appreciate him. He has always been very straightforward in his comments, and the media has slaughtered him for it. It's happening again.
For those who don't know, Mike Huckabee recently spoke at a Republican meeting and he addressed the attacks from the left about how conservatives apparently don't like women. This is what he said:
"Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That’s not a war on them, it’s a war for them. If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it. Let us take that discussion all across America, because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be."
Wow! Go, Mike! Of course, the liberals were quick to jump all over that, with even a White House statement saying it was "offensive." Offensive? How? It simply points out the truth that liberals seem to think that government should "stay out of the bedroom" when it comes to killing babies, but when it comes to the actions that lead to that issue, suddenly now government has to jump right into said bedroom. It simply points out the truth that if people stopped acting like animals who have no control over their sexual urges, then the issue of government provided birth control wouldn't be an issue at all.
Now, I don't want to get into a debate over birth control in general. If married couples choose to use such means, then that's between them and God. But let's be honest. The issue here isn't the average married couple. We're talking about government forcing insurance companies to provide birth control to anyone and everyone, and for the most part we're looking at under-aged, or single, or multiple partnered, or all of the above. Government sponsorship of promiscuity. That's the truth. And liberals prove once again that they can't handle the truth.
People use the line all the time that "you can't legislate morality." We can argue that. But it seems here that the liberals sure want to be in the business of "legislating immorality." I'm thankful for folks like Mike Huckabee standing for the truth, whether folks like to hear it or not.
