Many of you know that I consider myself a Republican, however this bullshit is getting really really tiresome. I am starting to rethink my allegiance. I have felt for sometime that the GOP doesn't really represent me at all anymore. I'm not sure the GOP even realizes that they don't exactly represent themselves anymore. The party I thought I was supporting stood for lower taxes, less government involvement in my life and strong foreign policy. The GOP was built on these principles. Today, more than ever, the GOP seems to be for something else. In some ways, more government involvement in my life. Religious beliefs mixing with politics and law. Religious freedom and birth control can exist in the same country, believe it or not. AND, it's completely acceptable for insurance companies to cover birth control.
If your church doesn't condone its use, don't use it. I take it because I suffer from endometriosis and have for 5 years. My insurance does not cover the pill, the most common and effective way to keep this condition at bay. By the way, 5-10% of women suffer from endometriosis. If left untreated, it can cause some serious health issues. Birth Control is a preventative drug in more ways than one.
I'm not trying to preach or change anyone else's opinion. But I'm certainly entitled to mine, and I think the GOP is heading into dangerous territory. I'm not sure they will recover from this nonsense. Oh, and Rush Limbaugh is a fat ass hole.
