Default So, we have a thread on Republican candidates

taking what is widely seen as a step or more backwards on women's issues.

I think it would be useful and interesting to hear from Republican women on the subject.

If anyone cares to speak up and or out, I'd be open to hearing her views. However, if she dare not wade into these waters (or simply chooses not to), I would understand that.

Can we have a civil discussion about this issue? Is it possible? I would like to believe we can do so.

I second the motion. Please don't hesitate to voice an opinion.

I consider myself an Independent and want to hear various viewpoints. My Dad voted both Dem. & Republican depending on the candidate.

It's hard to know whom you'll like or want to vote for. We had a great Republican Senator in my area a few years ago (I toured a prison with him; he taught me how to use brass knuckles). And one of my favorite clients is also a committed Republican who hunts, teases me relentlessly about my dogs, and is about 6'5" or so, all of which are qualities I generally dislike. But I really like this guy. So, go figure.

Anyway, my request for Republican input and perspective is sincere. If there's anyone who'd care to share her ideas, please feel free. I don't have any moderating power, but I'll ask everyone who joins in to play fair/nice.

Hope springs eternal, right?

I don't happen to share your optimism, though, so I'm not inclined to participate. I'll pm you.

Cross-posting from Nallia's thread on Republicans and domestic violence:

I think what you're looking for is this. The person who wrote it has made it available as a free PDF. It's an excellent book profiling the psychology of authoritarians. Since left-wing authoritarianism isn't prominent in the US and Canada, it focuses on right-wing authoritarianism.

ETA: The book isn't about Republicans in general. It's about right-wing authoritarians and their followers.
