Many single women, a key bloc, are avoiding GOP
AP ^ | December 15, 2012 | NICHOLAS RICCARDI

Posted on 12/15/2012 7:37:19 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

DENVER (AP) — Sara Stevenson spends her working hours surrounded by Republicans, namely the married men who work alongside her in a Denver oil and gas firm company. But after hours and on weekends, she usually spends her time with other single women, and there's not a Republican in sight among the bunch.

"There was just no way I could have supported any Republican this year," said Stevenson, 31. "They skew so much to the religious right. ... They focused so much on taxes. It's not something that women in my demographic really care about. I've never heard my friends lament their taxes."

There is an oozing of narcissism in these quotes. Someone who likely was brainwashed in college to distrust men and look at males as the opposition force: unless the man was pro-abortion and/or a neutered gay person. Sadly, women look at JFK and Bill Clinton as terrific former U.S. presidents while Ronald Reagan was a "religious" right-winger. JFK and Clinton used and humiliated women, had them for their personal toys; yet, non-Conservative women find their personalities magnetic. Who is really the independent thinker: a liberal who depends on the government as the sugar daddy or a conservative who loves her family.

It also makes it hard for us single guys, especially Freepers. A potential mate that supports OBummer is a deal breaker for me.

Many of these women will remain single, worried about losing abortion rights until they are too old to conceive children. They will pay the higher single person’s rate on their income and never catch on that the government has bilked them out of a goodly portion of their earnings.

Know several of these “girls”, because that’s what they act like, seventeen-year-old girls. They hate men, have these things called “gay boyfriends”, pretend like they are lesbians, dress like hipsters, spend all day on social networking sites, and askew the idea of having kids.

They are some of the most clueless things you will ever come across, but goodness knows they think they are a gift to civilization.

Many college educated women are being taught that men are evil, users, etc., and will not end up getting married. Men do not want to be married to this type of women. I think the Left is undermining the nuclear family possibly to keep the population down and to gain power. The big thing when I was in college was ZPG. And now ANY group of people is a ‘family’. Destroying nature's balance at every turn. They will not stop until they have destroyed this country. Young women are indeed young skulls full of mush and will turn to the Gov’t for care. 'Care' is guaranteed with Leftists in charge and a comfort to naive young people.

It all has to do with Sugar Daddy Govt. They throw out this rubbish about abortion rights, which is a smoke screen. If you ask most of them about Todd Atkin, most of them will say they tried the diet and it did not work.

This ‘single women are voting dem” template really isn’t anything new. Even in 2000 I remember single women voted 75% for Gore. Seems they prefer the effiminate leftist over the real man conservative. Married women view things a little differently. There are alot of reasons single women vote democrat and most of them are highly politically incorrect.

One can segment the population any way you want and you will find a segment that votes overwhelming for one side or the other. I mean, white poodle lovers might have votes overwhelming for 0, should the GOP piss off all other dog lovers to get this ‘coveted’ segment? No, articulate conservatism, like Rush and Mark have been saying all along. And watch out for fraud, like in Florida with Col. West.

As a single 42 year old woman, never married, no kids (I always say some people should NOT breed...I am one of them, but know it), I have NEVER voted for a dem.

I knew I was a republican, even before I “knew it”. I only surround myself with like minded people. Within the past few years, I have cut out ALL libs from my life because I blame them for our demise.

The single ladies expect the government to take care of them. That's not surprising. When they get married, they change so they expect their husbands to take care of them.

If feminists tell you differently, they're wrong. That's just how women are wired.

Back in the 90s, I dated a liberal from a small town in Indiana. Very pretty but very unstable and her political opinions were just one facet of a duplicitous individual. Every issue was a competition. Stay away. I am thrilled to have found a conservative babe who makes my life richer and sunnier.

Yes they will

They will trade p---- or whatever for the security/comfort they will desire/need later in life.

Females are not stupid

ANYone, male or female, EARNING a living is at least superficially aware of something called taxes and they will be forced soon to DEAL with rising tax taken from their paycheck.


Love is a decision and the magic and sparkles come after you've made a decision .. they don't "just happen"

The "girls" will make a decision later in life closely resembling the one stay-at-home-having-babies-baking-cookies ladies did earlier in their life.

THOSE ladies have a shine on their face, a very nice smile and contentment with being alive..

"It also makes it hard for us single guys,"

Hey, us single conservative gals have it hard too! I haven't dated in about 4 years. I chose to remove myself from the "system" because casual sex has now become the "norm".

I don't do that; therefore, I'M the "freak".

Life is much better since I have removed myself "from the market".

Yes and no.

You have the 75% about right I think. However Mitt Romney was the killer.

I believe he was the strongest candidate we had remaining following Palin’s refusal to run, but it doomed us, because the single women were strongly opposed, and even some Catholics were opposed.

We must not make that mistake again.

No more Mormon candidates. They are very welcome supporters, but keep them off the top of the ticket please.

The problem I see with many liberal women is their need to be part of a collective so they are accepted. Heaven forbid they have an original thought or individuality. Amazing how the original mantra of feminism has completely failed, and liberal women are now nothing more than indentured servants to collective group think.

Huh? There was not a hint of ‘religious right’ in this year’s campaign. We had a fairly left leaning candidate socially who refused to address any aspect of it. This just shows how wrong the consultants are, and how misinformed the public is. Whatever the left says to characterize the GOP and conservatives sticks.

If Republicans refuse to talk to women about the safety of economic independence, individual rights, self empowerment and the family social construct, versus the risk of being at the mercy of an amoral socialist machine that is fatherless and that hates the natue of women and men and marriage, they will not win.

Black women will always suck up this liberal death. The statistics of the Black race prove the outcome and should be discussed. But we stand a chance in awakening Asians, whites and hispanics to the power and goodness of the American soul. No one came here to be enslaved to an limo liberal elitist class who view them as animals and slaves their environmental zoo. The poverty and elitist oppression of socialism is not American and will not produce a future that anyone would come here to experience.

Money quote-
“I can’t imagine coming home and having to cook dinner and deal with someone else’s problems,” she said. “I’m not there yet.”

When being a wife and a mother become something to sneer at, we truly are doomed as a society.

What the Republican party should be focused on is de-funding and dis-empowering those social institutions(academia media etc) which teach and promote this frightening level of selfishness and narcissism.

Whether it was Scott Brown losing to Dizzy Miss Lizzie or Romney failing to the pansy, the GOP tried too hard to establish ties to womens’ issues and voters. They fell into a trap. I was told about a week prior to the debate that a friend of a friend changed her vote from Romney to Obama when she found out “Romney doesn't want women working out of the house.” What?! Some people aren't political junkies, listen to what a celeb says on Twitter or a dopey TV magazine show and vote on an issue or two; these are the people aiding in the destruction of America.

It is time for 18 year old women to register for the military draft, similar to males, in order to get college loans. I am not a proponent of women in combat but this will serve as a wake up call to women that there is more to life than abortions and jobs. There are cruel forces in the world on the inside and outside awaiting to destroy the integrity and fabric of America. A simple registration, similar to males, will show that if needed, women will honor their commitment to America and not limit their concerns to one or two issues.

These single women are “the ladyparts voters” (a term I coined and take credit for — I’m heartened to see a few other Freepers now using it as well, and I expect it to enter the general lexicon before too long).

Although their sentiments are formed early in life (young, single women make up the lion’s share of ladyparts voters), once established these voting patterns are unlikely to change. A -few- many question their own motivations after marriage and children, but an ever-larger-growing cohort of these women are going to remain single.

If there’s anything to blame for the ladyparts voters, it’s as much the advent of reliable methods of birth control. There won’t be any going back from that. As Loretta Lynn wrote and sang some years’ back:

“This old maternity dress I`ve got is going in the garbage
The clothes I`m wearing from now on won`t take up so much yardage
Miniskirts hotpants and a few little fancy frills
Yeah I`m making up for all those years since I`ve got the pill.”

I think it’s all part of the game plan for population reduction by the Feds:

Promote the gay lifestyle
Promote feminism
Promote birth control
Attack the institution of marriage

...using the MSM. Result - less children born; more resources available, less overcrowding, less payouts to entitlement programs, etc... Next to find a way to reduce the senior population which is less productive (pays much less taxes) and a drain on the federal programs; oh yeah, Obamacare is designed to do that; simply cut them off or restrict their care so that they will die years soon than expected.

Life without sex is better?

Only a woman could say that...trust me

I get your point though being disgusted by expectations.

have you thought about church?

my church has a large singles outreach here in Williamson county TN and plenty of single folks who seem to interract well and share values

not sure all are virgins but I’m fairly sure the sex doesn’t happen without commitments at least

I feel for ya hon...it’s a vexing time for folks with morals living outside a decent marriage

“They skew so much to the religious right. ...”

Too many want to legislate morals not teach morals which seems to violate Matthew 28:19 which never mentions legislation. What we are seeing today is that the left and the right have met at that place on the circle where you can’t tell them apart. The one that doesn’t have a problem prevaricating is winning. Those that want to legislate morals are scaring many that otherwise believe and want to be led to the right path but fear that they can’t trust the religious right. It would help if many acted like Christians instead of Crusaders with a sword ready to burn unbelievers at the stake. Compassion seems to be the word that is often missing. Are we also sure that our religious leaders are in it for anything but the 1000+ suits I see on many who look a lot like Boner. Some seem think that these religious leaders shouldn’t be criticized just like the left says that we can’t criticize the O. Sainthood comes early for many...would be my headline.

THE BIG PROBLEM FOR THIS COUNTRY IMHO is that neither side believes in the Constitution. Only their way is the truth and light, but maybe it’s not Gods way? The only thing that he’s ever said to me is between me and him.
