Wendy Long: NY's Best Choice to Defend Religious Liberty and Rebut the "War Against Women" Charge

New York's Republicans and Conservatives should nominate Wendy Long to debate and then replace Gillibrand in the United States Senate, because she's the best qualified AND a women and not nominating her would give credence to the idea that Republicans and Conservatives are unfair to women.

The upcoming presidential election is huge.

In New York, there is a United States Senate race too.

It's not as important as the presidential race, but it is potentially a game changer too.

Just imagine a well qualified female Republican-Conservative Senator actually representing New York.

New York's junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, whose exemplifies flip flopping, is running for a full term. She was appointed to replace Hillary Clinton in 2009 and elected to complete Clinton's term in 2010. After her appointment, she quickly morphed from a moderate representing an upstate congressional district to win the same designation that National Journal gave to then Senator Barack Obama before he was elected President--most "liberal" United States Senator.

Gillibrand is so "liberal" that she was upset with Obama's phony "accommodation" intended to quell the outrage over the violations of religious liberty that would result from his proposed HHS regulations.

But Gillibrand won easily (by more than 27%) in a Republican year against a male Republican-Conservative candidate.

Gillibrand has a gender advantage against all of her potential male opponents.

The liberal Democrats know it and plan to exploit it.

New York's senior Senator, Chuck Schumer, is already working to help Gillibrand win re-election by posing as a women's champion in an illusory "War Against Women."

On March 14, 2012, Obama-friendly Politico reported as follows (

"New York Sen. Chuck Schumer believes he has found a political weapon in the unlikeliest of places: the Violence Against Women Act.

"Republicans have several objections to the legislation, but instead of making changes, Schumer wants to fast track the bill to the floor, let the GOP block it, then allow Democrats to accuse Republicans of waging a 'war against women.'"

The United States Senate soon may begin debating a bill to update expired provisions in the 1994 Violence Against Women Act, which provides assistance to victims of domestic abuse and other crimes.

The bill is far from a mere reauthorization and was approved in committee last month on a party-line vote.

Seven years ago the bill sailed through committee on its way to reauthorization a second time.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the committee, explained that he supports a reauthorization of the law, but voted no because the bill would result in the granting of legal status to illegal immigrants who are victims of crimes under "liberal" criteria, among other things.

Democrats are pretending that Republicans are conducting a "War Against Women." For example, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) ranted, “Not to reauthorize this [Violate Against Women Act] is a tragedy. This is one more step in the removal of rights for women.”

This "War Against Women" notion is nonsense, but politically potent nonsense.

Of the five female Republican United States Senators, three have already expressed support for bring the reauthorization bill to the floor.

Republicans need women to stand up for religious liberty and not to be cowed by the phony "War Against Women" charge.

New York's Republicans and Conservatives should nominate Wendy Long to debate and then replace Gillibrand in the United States Senate, because she's the best qualified AND a women and not nominating her would give credence to the idea that Republicans and Conservatives are unfair to women.
