Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Only Paul Will Win the Independent Vote

For you poll-watchers, this from last week's Marist Poll of Iowa:

Obama Ties Paul…Leads Rest of GOP Field, But Only Has Majority against Bachmann

In hypothetical contests with potential Republican challengers, President Barack Obama
bests his competition with one exception.  
Against Paul, 42% of registered voters in Iowa support Obama while the same proportion --
42% -- backs Paul.  A notable 16% are undecided.  Paul attracts 15% of Iowa’s Democrats
and leads President Obama 42% to 35% among independent voters.  Paul also has a 14
percentage point advantage over Obama among voters under 45 years of age.
 There is a gender gap.  Paul outpaces the president among men by 11 percentage points, and
President Obama outdistances Paul among women by 10 percentage points.
In a matchup against Romney, the president has a seven percentage point lead.  46% of
registered voters support Mr. Obama while 39% favor Romney.  15% are undecided.
Against Gingrich, the president garners 47% to 37% for Gingrich, a 10 percentage point
lead.  16% are undecided.
The president has an 11 percentage point advantage against Perry.  Here, 48% back
Obama while 37% are for Perry, and 15% are undecided.
When paired against Cain, half of Iowa’s electorate -- 50% -- supports President Obama
compared with 32% for Cain, giving Mr. Obama an 18 percentage point lead.  18% are
The president receives majority support against Bachmann.  In this hypothetical contest,
Obama receives 54% to Bachmann’s 31%, an advantage of 23 percentage points.  15% are

It's also a fact that the overseas wars are an overwhelming negative with 2/3 of the American people.  You can call them stupid all the day long, neocons, but the fact remains that the only reason Obama is in the Oval Office is because of foreign policy epic fail. You're not going to win a national election without them as not everyone drinks the Fox News Koolaid.

This is such an unbelievable situation, we have the most authoritative pro-life candidate ever (ob/gyn!) and we have pro-choice people putting that issue to the side to support him. Meanwhile people who claim to be pro-life will kick Dr. Paul to the curb because he doesn't support the Elite's agenda of dominating the world (which involves a lot of dead babies) using the US military, and you're totally naive if you don't see that by now.

And this just in from the newest PPP poll of Iowa --  Paul Closes in on Gingrich

Gingrich 22%
Paul 21%
Romney 16%
There has been some major movement in the Republican Presidential race in Iowa over the last week, with what was a 9 point lead for Newt Gingrich now all the way down to a single point. Gingrich is at 22% to 21% for Paul with Mitt Romney at 16%, Michele Bachmann at 11%, Rick Perry at 9%, Rick Santorum at 8%, Jon Huntsman at 5%, and Gary Johnson at 1%.
