Todd Akin longs for the days of America’s past. So much so that he came out against employers being required to paying women equally. From the Huffington Post:
“I believe in free enterprise. I don’t think the government should be telling people what you pay and what you don’t pay,” Akin said at a town hall meeting on Thursday. The comment came in response to a question about Akin’s decision to vote against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which has made it it easier for women to challenge unequal pay.
It is with this comment, as well as others (legitimate rape), that encourage me to endorse Todd Akin. I believe Todd Akin is the perfect candidate for the Senate…the 1812 Senate.
If elected to the 1812 Senate, I hope Todd Akin will reintroduce some other laws that bring us back to a simpler time for women.
- The Rule of Thumb it will be legal to beat your wife as long as what you are beating her with is no bigger than your thumb.
- Take away women’s right to vote. I mean seriously, can we be trusted with such a responsibility?
- Married women should not be able to own property or enter into contracts. How can we mess up our pretty little heads with such complicated matters as owning our own property or reading over contracts?
Todd Akin believes strongly in America’s founding principles. I think we can all agree those times were the good old days (for everyone except African-Americans, Jewish, Native Americans, Irish, women, homosexuals…I could go on.) Vote for Todd Akin for 1812 Senate and put women back in the place where Akin thinks they belong….at home and in the kitchen.
