Women in the military

Women have been serving and dying in support roles for our military going all the way back to our countries founding. My question isn't whether or not they can do the job on the front lines but if they should. I may be old fashioned saying this but it seems society is healthier when it puts a premium on protecting women. I believe this attitude promotes respect for women and what they mean and do for society.

Will we be looking at this as a victory for women in ten years only time will tell but I doubt it.

Reading the paper Saturday morning I came across an article that made me say What!. In the article Congresswoman Marcia Fudge of Cleveland is railing against GOP congress members.This quote really got me she said "They don't understand it's governments job to take care of the people". Maybe this is the key difference between liberals and conservatives because I sure don't believe I need the government taking care of me. Now there are certain functions the government takes on that are necessary roads,police, the military and such for keeping us free from anarchy.

I sure don't think most people want Mommy and Daddy government that the liberals propose not if they truly think about it.
