    To me, you're describing the 1950's, and Pat Boone at the top of the charts. I have no interest in going back there, and the GOP is discovering that lots of other women feel the same way. With so many real problems to address right now, to get sidetracked on an issue like this is nuts. And it MIGHT even cost them the election.

    Nobody wants to go back to the 1950's. It's not about you, it's about all of us. The Democrats are framing this as a debate on access to birth control, but you had access to it before this. This is about government mandating that it be given away at taxpayer expense. If the government decides that you have a "right" to birth control, then that means that I have an "obligation" to pay for it, just like I have an "obligation" to pay for all sorts of other things that the government has decided other people need to have at my expense. This is the federal government growing more powerful and arbitrary.

    The only way women would not have access is if the FDA suddenly pulled the plug and forced every drug company to stop providing Birth Control (pill, IUD, Depo shot, etc), forced every condom manufacture to stop making them, and disallowed any doctor from performing any kind of vasectomy or tubal ligation. This idea it's going the GOP is trying to stop women from receiving birth control is just fucking asinine.

    Libtards are counting on the fact there's enough "useful idiots" in the GOP like Linda #'s that will beleive that a non-issue started by a DNC Operative is somehow something the Conservatives this election cycle are pushing for and support.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Guys who are most concerned about the "morality" of women screwing around are the ones who pretty much couldn't get any. That's just the way it is.

    I don't know when you went to college, but Rush is only four years older than I am, so he did NOT go to college in a completely different climate than I did - and the sexual revolution had been fought and long since won by the time I was there!
    I disagree. I got plenty and consider my college years to be the second most decadent period of my life. I have changed a great deal over the years and have a completely different take on morality now. I'm not perfect, just different.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
