    1. He did not say he will ban contraception...they are hyping it up and making a mountain out of a mole hill. He is right that contraception is harmful to women's health, my sister recently was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer linked to the long-term use of estrogen, according to her doctor.

      I wish I could attend...not sure I can unless I have my pre-school child miss school that day...hmmm..

    2. No one said he was trying to ban contraception. People just think his comments are ignorant and make him less appealing as a candidate. He wasn't making a medical argument against birth control. He is making a social/religious argument that people who use birth control aren't having sex in the way that he approves of. It is like he doesn't even get that married people use birth control.

  4. For the record, I’m a lifelong social and fiscal conservative. Why not consider Mitt Romney? He has no financial interest in politics. He is highly educated and is the most qualified leader of all the candidates. The same can not be said for Rick. His candidacy is simply a career move. He will continue to hang around DC after he loses and will keep cashing in as a lobbyist. He says he supports the Made in America theme, yet he bought a 2008 Audi A6. He said that medical malpractice lawsuits should be capped at $250k, yet his wife recently sued her chiropractor for $500k. Last, but not least, why is the Tucson Tea Party hosting someone that doesn’t agree with them? Rick said the following: “I’ve got some real concerns about this movement within the Republican Party and the Tea Party movement to sort of refashion conservatism and I will vocally and publicly oppose it.”
