Capitalism has little to do with the restriction of the rights of American women. In fact, restricting the market with government regulations is very anti-capitalist. I'll also thank you not to lump intelligent, sane Americans in with the likes of Rick Santorum and other legislators who are unable to separate their own religious zealotry from their public office. Furthermore, the fact that changes like this aren't exactly sweeping the country points to the fact that American citizens are doing what we can to keep the crazies from taking over.
So thank you for your blanket statements about America and Americans; they say more about your ignorance than my country.
You are right, my post was off topic and incredibly vague not to mention rather belligerent. I do apologies I should have put more of an effort in explaining why I brought it up opposed to making a first impression as an ignorant schmuck.
I am American too.
I support a free market capitalist society but we are far from a free market, but I will not get into that and stay on topic.
The restrictions on a women's rights to choose is one of the many issues our nation seems to be plagued with, I do not support any law nor policy to govern or enforce peoples individual personal choices or life styles. The fact that our politicians are focusing more on restricting American individual liberties then resolving issues like medical, education reform, and hell maybe eliminating our debt is rather disgusting. But it comes to no surprise it seems each time we have an election both parties tend to focus on things like how to stop abortion or the prevention of homosexual rights.
First of all homosexual rights should not even need to be debated, it does not directly effect anyone but the interested parties. Our nation has gone so far with the evolution of civil rights but it seems each time we take a step up we take two steps down.
Abortion is another topic, some find it touchy but I never really figured what the big deal is. If a woman is impregnated in any way it is their decision if they would like to keep the baby. They do not allow abortions (as far as I know) when it is way too late in the developmental cycle and either way how I see it is we are a modern society, we are not in the bloody dark ages, the only arguments for anti-abortion I hear are religiously fueled, though I would like to hear a stand point from some one who is Anti-abortion but agnostic. -shrug-
My opinion is I feel that the only reason they bring up issues like abortion, gay rights, or what have you is they are trying to dodge or not take care of the real issues. Like fixing are damn economy, and revitalizing our education system.
