I read an editorial in Time Magazine that might help all of my die-hard Republican friends and family understand my politcal views a little better. A Michigan woman is writing about the concern that the Democratic Party is losing the housewife vote. She wrote, "As a Democrat and a churchgoing wife and full-time mother, I can relate to these frustrations. To me, Democrats stand for equality, compassion for the poor, concern for the environment and a host of other traditional moral values. But Republicans have made opposition to abortion and gay marriage the moral high ground, even as they start wars, torture prisoners, give to the rich, take from the poor and promote the death penalty. Until the Democrats embrace the traditional moral values inherent in their philosophy and shout them from the rooftops, the Rupublicans will continue to claim a monopoly on morality." Hear, hear.
