The Republican Party & American Women

5 years ago

The ‘Labeling’ of American Women - What’s my ‘Label’ today?

If I’m an American Woman and a registered Republican or I want to join the Republican party;

  • Do I have to ‘LABEL’ myself as a Republican, Moderate Republican or Conservative Republican? 
  • How do American women get accepted by Karl Rove, Jim DeMit, and Senator Rand Paul and Grassroots/Tea Party leaders?
  • What the heck is going on?

Let’s take a sneak peek at some of today’s movers and shakers trying to influence the Republican Party and American women;

“Rove’s group, the Conservative Victory Fund, has drawn fire from Tea Party backers like FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund” Karl Rove vs. tea party in big money fight for GOP's future

Donald Trump: 'Karl Rove is a total loser’  -

“FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth, Senate Conservatives Fund, American Majority Action, Tea Party Express and the Family Research Council combined to spend id="mce_marker"37 million for the 2012 cycle, according to a POLITICO analysis of tax and campaign filings and interviews — meaning they could mount major efforts against Conservative Victory Project”  Karl Rove vs. tea party in big money fight for GOP's future

“And that doesn’t even include Americans for Prosperity, the nonprofit backed by Charles and David Koch that had aid "mce_marker"40 million 2012 budget and has a history of tension with Rove’s network” Karl Rove vs. tea party in big money fight for GOP's future

The list of some of the groups trying to define the Republican Party:

American Action Network - Brian O Walsh, President

American Majority Action  Ned Ryun, President and CEO

Crossroads Groups  -

FreedomWorks - Matt Kibbe, President

Heritage Foundation - Jim DeMit President elect

Senate Conservatives Fund

Tea Party Express -  Leader Amy Kremer

The Club for Growth - CHRIS CHOCOLA, President

The Conservative Victory Project - Super PAC

The Family Research Council - Tony Perkins, President

American For Prosperity: President Tim Phillips.  Primary an educational group in the past but the groups President Tim Phillips has stated “his group was considering playing in primaries in 2014 for the first time” 

The Republican Party and all the sub groups have a few things in common but the number one common theme; No solutions that deal with Reality.  I predict the first political party that creates real solutions that deal with everyday reality of life will be the winner but for now the Democrats false hopes for American society is winning.

2014 Election cycle is right around the corner and the fight for women votes  will start all over again.

Ladies, I don’t think it matters if you are single, married, divorced or widowed nor does your race, age and economic status really matter.  My life has been filled with adventures some good and some not so good and what I learned from during my adventures while meeting  thousands of women across this great Nation is that we all care about same basic things.  Unfortunately, the political system prey on women’s emotions and women’s lack of time due to family, faith and community commitments to gain ‘Trust’. 

Best Advice: Drop your political party loyalty until basic civility and honesty can become the norm.  Neither Democrats nor Republicans have your back right now just your attention through some really good PR.

Do things need to change for the Republican Party? Yep

First of all it’s time to grow up and take the high road its way too easy for the Democrat and Republican establishments to label American women its sick.

~ Ed Schultz, a liberal talk show host on MSNBC, called conservative radio host Laura Ingraham a "slut".

~ Hank Stuever  "Who is this woman, this fruit bat in fleece . . . ." - in the opening sentence of his television preview of "Sarah Palin's Alaska"

~ Maher called Palin a “cunt” and said “there’s just no other word for her.”

~ West said: "Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige." He called his fellow representative "vile, despicable and cowardly." Also, "not a lady."

Men are not off limits:
~ MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, who described Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown as an "irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against women."

Focus on the issues, please.  I use to tell my first grader that name calling is a sign of Fear.  

Which Party will be the first to act like adults?

If I was to give the ‘good ol boys’ some tips:

  • Gentlemen your ‘Label’ for ALL American Women; Americans
  • Gentlemen your ‘Label’ for All American Women that choose to be part of the Republican Party; Republican
  • Communication that eliminates ‘Fear’ is the ONLY way to success
  • When you get your big boy pants on let us know...

Abortion:  Roe vs. Wade will NEVER be overturned stop wasting air.  The goal: How do we reduce the number of Abortions. Try to remember this: “The political-action committee, which supports pro-choice female candidates, reported more donors and members during the 2011-12 election cycle than at any other period in its 27-year history” 

America’s Security:  America’s self-reliance for consumer based energy needs to be addressed.  How? Education in its simplest form will lead to results.

Ladies, you also have the responsibility to ensure they you pay attention in 2014, remember ‘Product Differentiation and Planning’, don’t let bite you…!!!
