Iowa Politics

So, here in good old Iowa, we have had the shift as with many other states that went from blue to red. A new, well really old actually, Republican Governor and part of our congress.

Now, all of these people pretty much ran on 2 issues. Jobs and the economy. So far, here are the priorities that they have put first:

  • Stop gay marriage
  • Discriminate based on religious beliefs
  • Stop early pre-school (or at least make it more difficult)
  • And now – ban abortions and many forms of contraceptives.

When you guys lose your seats at the next election, try not to be too shocked.


And no, I’m not a Democrat or Republican. I’m barely a “little l” libertarian. I’d rather vote none of the above but I don’t have that option.
