Its not “Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”. It’s “Married people from the Republican party and unmarried people are from the Democrat party”.
In this election season (and many past), married people strongly support Republican presidential candidates and unmarried people support Democrat party presidential candidates.
This was captured in a recent Gallup poll entitled: “Married Voters Strongly Back Romney“. The byline is “Marital status is strong predictor of voting behavior”. There are a couple of points about this poll that are very interesting and should be alarming to people looking toward our next four years of Presidential leadership.
1. The trend isn’t about Romney. If you review the last several election cycles, you will see this apples to the Republican party. One party has become the party that supports the interests of those that take the crucial path of getting married and best raising our next generation. The other has become the anti-marriage party that supports a broken/incomplete/alternate/none-at-all concept of family.
2. What does it say about the Democrat party that people who are not married strongly support them? It should be alarming to normal people who are Democrats that they have a party with an interest in growing dependency and anti-marriage. The Democrat party pours money (“compassionately”) onto single mothers and can’t see how that breeds welfare queens and greater welfare dependency. They want to dissolve the objective concept of marriage between a man and a woman at both the Federal and State level and don’t get why married people don’t vote for them. The black community, arguably the most core Democrat constituency has the worst level of broken families/lowest marriage percentages and the greatest dependency on Government. The list goes on.
The bottom line is that all people need a stable family unit to best find personal happiness and raise children. Republicans get this and support policies that people have collectively judged to be beneficial to this foundation of our society. They marry other private citizens. Liberals, with all their anti-family rhetoric and ideas, see the Government, and not family and marriage, as their benefactor/protector/enabler and are instead accepting the Government as their spouse- a losing proposition.
Vote for a better society that supports, not undermines marriage. Vote for Mitt Romney in November.
