Democrats are scrambling to raise emotionally-laden issues this year in order to trick voters into supporting Obama’s reelection. Since they know they cannot win through an honest dialogue on the issues, they have resorted to appealing to people’s emotions in order to sway them. Democrats used race-baiting to create outrage over the Trayvon Martin shooting. They hope to make people feel guilty about the shooting, regardless of how farfetched their version of the incident is, so voters will choose to vote for Obama to assuage their consciences.

A second emotional ploy the left launched this year is fabricating a “War on Women” in order to stir up emotions about misogyny.” Although we live in the most liberated country in the world, where 98% of American women have used birth control, and 1.3 million abortions occur annually, Democrats claim Republicans are waging a War on Women accessing these services. This could not be further from the truth. Women already have access to free or very low cost birth control. Planned Parenthood provides birth control free to low-income women, and Wal-Mart and Target offer birth control for $4/month. The left hyped up Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke’s testimony to Congress, where she complained that the Catholic-affiliated university did not offer birth control, forcing her to spend over $3000 out of pocket to afford it. Her testimony was such a farce that she has been ridiculed endlessly ever since.
