A Letter to Liberal Single Moms

A Letter to Liberal Single Moms September 17, 2012

Dear Single Moms,

A new Gallup study shows that there’s a marriage gap in the Presidential race.  Married people tend be conservative, while singles tend to be liberal.  If you’re a single mom supporting Obama, then please don’t believe these media myths:

1.    Conservatives will judge you and hate you because your family doesn’t fit the ideal stereotype:

Well, I’m living proof that this isn’t the case. I wish Tripp had both a mom and a dad in the same house, but he doesn’t. Conservatives have always treated me kindly and lovingly.  If you look at the comments section of any of my blog posts, you will see that liberals are the ones who call me every name in the book.

2.    The government will take better care of you than you can take care of yourself.

Everyone needs help in life.  A lot of single moms have it pretty tough.  But no one knows better what’s best for you and the kids than you do.  One of the worst parts of government help is government control. It limits your chances for you and your kids to succeed.

3.    Conservatism is a men-only-club.

There are many wonderful conservative women role models.  In fact, I think my mom is the best example!

I know how hard it is to be a single mom, but please don’t fall for these media myths.  Be a strong, conservative, single mom!  There are more of us than you think.
