Musings from a conservative woman's perspective.  I've always thought that God's expression of his love toward his daughters is stunningly, beautifully exemplified in the following passage...

"Thus says the Lord God to Jerusalem,
'Your origin and your birth are from the land of the Canaanite,
your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite.
As for your birth, on the day your were born
your navel cord was not cut,
nor were you washed with water for cleansing;
you were not...even wrapped in cloths.
No eye looked with pity on you to do any of these things for you,
to have compassion on you.
Rather you were thrown out into the open field 
Then you grew up,
for you were abhorred on the day you were born.
When I passed by you and saw you squirming in your blood,
I said to you ...Live!
Yet you were naked and bare...
I also swore to you and entered into a covenant with you
so that you became Mine,' declares the Lord God.
'Then I bathed you with water,
washed off your blood from you, and anointed you with oil.
I also clothed you with embroidered cloth...
You ate fine flour, honey, and oil;
so you were exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royal.
Then your fame went forth among the nations
on account of your beauty,
for it was perfect because of My splendor
which I bestowed on you,'
declares the Lord."
Ezekiel 16:3-14

God sees every birth as a precious soul.  He saves,  cares, and beautifies because of His splendor He freely shares.  This is the choice, what it means to be pro-life.  So we too come upon the field where lives squirm in their blood.  Can we as Christians support candidates who support abortion, who deal with young girls in abominable ways, who lie about caring for women?

Hillary is not the first women to be nominated as a candidate for president.  Victoria Woodhuff ran even before women had the right to vote.   It is a lie that Hillary is the first to break the  imaginary glass ceiling that had never been broken before.  Women do have the right to vote now, and Hillary is counting on that women's vote.  Does she deserve it?

Hillary has long admired Margaret Sangor, the mother of Planned Parenthood which had a two-fold purpose: 1. as a genocide for the black race.  2.  to remove the consequences for illicit sex, a baby. 

Then there is the court case for which Hillary was an attorney for a man who beat and raped a twelve year old girl.  Her defense against this young kidnapped virgin was that she wanted an older man and fantasized about having sex with him.  Her laugh is recorded as she lightly spoke of this horror.  He served only 2 months because of his attorney, Hillary Clinton.

Then there is the example of a woman scorned as the first lady in the White House.  When her husband had illicit affairs all through their marriage, she continued to support him and attempted to destroy the women who were victims of his predatory actions from a man with the highest power in the land.  She does not engender an example of someone who stands for women.  I for one do not wish to have that man back in the White House, even as the first husband.

 It appeared that he fell asleep as his wife gave her acceptance speech.

I thought former President Clinton's was abominable and rambling as he spoke of Hillary's water breaking and the joy of the birth of their daughter as the happiest day of his life.  Really?  Water breaking spoken of in a presidential speech?  It was purposefully meant as an example of her as a woman, as a mother.  He conveniently didn't mention his unfaithfulness over all the years.  All I could think of was the millions of water breaking in the torture and scalding or tearing apart limb by limb of infants aborted and left squirming in their blood, thrown away as undesirable.

Behind the scenes she is a filthy mouthed, power-hungry woman who is happy to have taken tens of millions from wall street companies and from foregin governments promising them favors.  She was revealed as one who was grossly negligent in the handling of  top secret national information breaking all the rules set up to for the protection of Americans for our national security.  Thus, she has no right to act as if she has our best interest in mind.

And concerning our current first lady who gave a speech in support of Hillary's candidacy,  when she spoke of living in the White House built by slave labor, it was almost entirely inaccurate.  Most of the labor was hired, even slaves being paid for their work.  Secondly, what did that angry face mean when she spoke of her poor daughters going to school being taken away in black cars by men with guns?  Did she not appreciate the protection for her girls?  Did she mean that it was wrong?  Eight years ago she said that the first time she was proud of her country was when they elected her husband.  Why is she angry?

The last DNC booed Israel and God.  This DNC booed during a moment of silence in honor of the slain police officers with a chant of "Black Lives Matter."  Hillary invited to the stage the woman whose 300 pound son robbed a convenience store, roughed up the owner, then when apprehended by a policeman, struggled with him for his gun; the gun went off and shot the officer in the hand; then when he came charging back after the officer, he was shot and killed.  It was proven to be a total fantasy: "Hands up, don't shoot."  This woman has been charged with battery towards her own mother for the proceeds of the tee-shirts with this logo.  Is this the best Hillary can come up with to present to our nation?

Yes, we need to be very careful about what kind of example we would hold up to our daughters.  Yes, I would be thrilled to have a female president.  Yes, I would be thrilled to have a black or Hispanic or those of other races who also ran in our party.   But should a person be elected because of their skin color?  Should a person be elected merely because of their gender?  Do we owe women this choice.  No.  Ethics and character trump this every time.
