Title: Barack Wins - Good or bad for parents?
Post by: SPARC Admin on Nov 05, 2008, 10:23:09 AM
Will Barack Obama being President make any substantive difference to fathers and families? Will parents in general be better or worse off? Why? (Or why not?)

In regards to families in general, Obama as president, IF he is able to get the tax cuts he "promised" then it could potentially be a good thing???  Hard to say really.  I don't agree with the tax plan he laid out.  To me it seems like it would do more to hinder economic growth, stagnate the ability to create jobs and punish those who already pay 70% of the taxes.
 
I don't recall him stating anything about how he would help or hinder father rights or changing the family court system.

I think that it is a bad thing.  Considering his Father's Day bashing of fathers, Joe Biden (VAWA Joe) as VP, the status of the current economy, and the womens vote that helped put him in office I think that at best we will continue to be ignored, at worst getting hit for more child support increases and judicial appointees who are liberally gender biased.

McCain would have just ignored us. 

The pres-elect and vp-elect have already shown their gender bias in order to garner the women's vote.  If you haven't seen the Father's Day speech, I have it on my website. http://www.geopics.net/fathertime (http://www.geopics.net/fathertime) It's under the link "Presidential."  The "Violence Against Women Acts" VAWA, which is gender discriminatory in the name itself, was championed by Joe Biden.

It's an uphill fight that just got steeper.

It's FatherTime

I remember years ago when this Act was making its way through congress that it was THIS site that educated many folks about its gender discriminatory nature -- and yep, that was one of the reasons I voted the way I did.
