This week on #LFCRadio we are going to talk about the War of Women that both President Obama and his opponent for November, Mitt Romney have claimed the other is raging.

If you are a “lefty”, you are first going to talk about the conservatives position on women’s rights to have control of their bodies, more specifically, to have “abortions or not” is not the states choice but the women themselves.

If you are a “righty”, you stick by your guns in saying that women should not be given the choice of having abortions. They have gone as far as attempt in my home state of Virginia to pass a law that would make it mandatory to administer ultrasounds that would require vaginal probes against the collective wills of many women.

If you are a “lefty”, you believe that women have never been paid equal to men for doing the same work. Women such as Lilly Ledbetter, have fought so hard that an act was named after here.

If you are a “righty”, you support either overtly or through your complicity in your silence, that the problem with equal pay either is a myth or is a work in progress that is not determinant to receive their vote. When challenged on this recently, the presumptive GOP nominee, Romney, was hesitant in responding to the question on whether he supported the Ledbetter Act ( “Does Gov. Romney support the Lilly Ledbetter Act?”.) Maybe it’s because, as he so eloquently expressed, “Corporations are People too“. His corporate “people” friends, don’t really want to pay the women who work for them equal pay to the men who work for them.

Than last week, the “lefty” Hillary Rosen, made a comment about Anne Romney, not ever have had a “job”, which was a softball to “righties” to claim that the Dems don’t respect stay at home moms. Of course stay at home moms are to be respected for the real work they do day-to-day. I just wonder how much the multi-millionaire, Romney did daily to raise her boys. I can’t see her folding mounds of socks or carting them around to all of their soccer games. She probably had a “staff” for that. But admittedly I’m being a little presumptuous. Just a little.

So with the general election season just kicking off, we will do the same thing. We will have the current President of the Florida Federation for Republican Women, Cindy Graves as our guest. We will dig into her position on these issues and others.

What are the Stand Your Ground Laws in Your State?

There are similar laws in many states. Check out this map of the laws in states all around the country. You or your son could be the next Trayvon Martin. Knowledge is power.

As someone who considers themselves a fiscal conservative, yet a social moderate, I often find myself leaning towards the ideology of the Democrats. Admittedly, like many of us, my family we’re Dems, but unlike many, that has not been my bottom line factor in leaning that way my entire voting life.  As much as I am against abortion, am a capitalist and am a person of strong Christian Faith, I also take a common sense approach that looks at the plight of poor black, brown and white people and say, “who stands up for them?” Its a position that more people are probably taking than we all realize.

This is where a lot of blacks have a conflict with Black Republicans. To ignore the plights of the poor, to stand for the elimination of some of the same social programs that helped to build the middle class that is now crumbling, seems to fly in the face of the needs of many of the family members these “revolutionary” individuals will be highly critical of at next summers family reunion. Simply, instead of only thinking of their personal life advances, some of us “liberal-minded” folks, seem to focus on pulling people up behind us, instead of stepping on their heads.

Well in the last 10-15 years there has been a growing segment of  the African American population that has made the choice to become apart of “todays” Republican Party. I emphasis, “todays” Republican Party, because one of the many talking points that Black Republicans will site, is the fact that many of the original Civil Rights activist were Republican, including MLK. Well the Republican Party of 50 Years ago, is not the GOP of today. Todays GOP, is based not just in states rights, but the support of corporate greed, limiting the rights of prisoners and ignoring the needs of the lower class. Todays Republicans, like to say they believe in the individuals rights of all Americans, yet would like to determine what individuals can do with their bodies. Todays Republicans believe that “No Compromise” is the way to effectively govern. As much as I agree with some of their fiscal conservative views, I tend to disagree with most of their other ideologies.

Admittedly, the Democrats are far from perfect. Some of these same social programs that the left supports have been instrumental in creating an air of acceptance of being in the permanent “underclass.” This life should always be about progression, not stagnation.

On this episode of Life Full Circle Radio, we will have a discussion that will include some of our Black Republican friends. We will discuss, what drove them to be a Republican, how do they deal with the scrutiny, as well as who they are supporting in the GOP race in 2012. Join us for the highly anticipated discussion.

Of course, as always, we will have our super producer, Nikkia Ganey with hot topics, Seshmi Robertson with Entertainment, Elton Gumbel with Sports and Alton Drew with the Politics segment. Join us this and every Wednesday night for the lively conversation by clicking HERE!
