Republican congressional candidate Mia Love addressed the Republican National Convention in Tampa last night.
The GOP contender, a devout Mormon, running for Utah’s 4th district House seat told her audience, “The America I grew up knowing was centered in self-reliance and filled with possibilities of living the American dream.”
Watching the GOP Convention last night was, for Seraphic Secret, and we suspect for millions of others, a refreshing experience. We were deeply moved by the featured Republican women, among them Mia Love (Utah); Rep. Marsha Blackburn (Tennessee); Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Washington); Senator Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire), Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin; South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and Ann Romney, wearing a lovely red silk taffeta dress by Oscar de la Renta.
Not one of them shrill, angry or embittered, demanding that American citizens pay for their lifestyle choices with condoms and birth-control pills. Not one of them using the euphemism “women’s health,” which is code for abortion, itself a chillingly clinical term for the murder of babies. These impressive Republican women spoke about faith, family, personal responsibility and the virtues of hard work.
They spoke about liberty. They spoke about the America to which my poverty-stricken grandparents dreamed and ultimately emigrated: a land where citizens are free from the boot of government. My grandparents did not come to America in order to benefit from a government program. They did not come to America because a government bureaucrat arbitrarily decided what was fair or unfair. They came here because laws are applied equally to all citizens. They came to America not because this country is perfect, but because this country is good and decent and moral and allows every man to live in freedom with the ability to increase his bounty.
The Democrats slice and dice the electorate by their genitals: they are, at the moment, focused on women, who are subdivided by color and race. There are gays, divided by ever finer sexual surgical distinctions. They pit poor women against rich women against middle-class women, whose ever-shifting incomes rise and fall at the whim of Obama’s teleprompter.
Obama holds out a lollipop to the women he has cynically identified — and that lollipop is a condom and an abortion.
In this way Obama and the Democrats reveal their contempt for American women and their view of children as nothing more than disposable slices of tissue.
This dark strategy won’t work. It’s ugly, divisive, un-American and profoundly immoral.
Seraphic Secret is convinced that the next President of the United States will be Mitt Romney.
G-d bless America.
