Picture This: Gabbard Wants to Legalize Prostitution
Imagine, if you dare, what the country would look like if Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard had her way? And no, we aren’t talking about how her policies on the economy, employment, or gun control would look either. The Democratic Rep. out of Hawaii was talking about the sex market, as one story reported, and she had some very – “liberal” ideas.
If you aren’t familiar, don’t worry, there quite honestly wasn’t much to miss here. Despite her youth, she appears to be a tried and true part of that new socialist-leaning segment of the Democratic party, a la Sanders and Buttigieg. So it should be no surprise that she has campaigned on the platform of free healthcare, free college, and those other free “everything” Democratic promises.
It also appears that she is following surprise front-runner Mayor Pete’s lead in a new approach to winning voters, after all, everyone is doing the “free” thing now. Buttigieg is a smart guy though and so it is no surprise that he has separated himself (a little at least) from the pack. His tactic? In addition to free everything, Buttigieg has started campaigning on the ideas of decriminalizing drugs.
Of course, that was spurred on by the continuing legalization efforts of marijuana, but Mayor Pete took it one step farther. As our story reminded us, “…Mayor Pete decided to up the ante and call for decriminalizing heroin and every other drug on the streets.”
Now, almost as if taking his cue, Rep. Gabbard has followed his lead but this time in another arena – sex. According to our story, the free-thinking Congresswoman said, “if a consenting adult wants to engage in sex work, that is their right, and it should not be a crime,” hmm?
She went on to explain her reasoning, stating that “all people should have autonomy over their bodies and their labor.” Right. That is sound thinking right there. Apply that to Mayor Pete’s drug legalization platform, and now we’re cooking – Meth!
Hey, who cares? It two consenting adults want to sell and buy drugs, based on Gabbard’s belief, they should have “autonomy over their bodies…” so shoot up if you want to, “…and their labor.” So cook it up kiddos!
Now, she would most certainly correct us here and remind us that she was talking about what she called, “sex work.” Well, that makes it better, doesn’t it? Because that is one thing we just don’t see enough of in America, sexuality. It doesn’t flood our television screens, our emails, our movie theatres, or advertisements, does it?
Imagine the images you and your children would find at the supermarket. On the way to church or at home during a commercial as you watch your favorite family program. That’s a pretty picture, isn’t it?
Don’t worry, we have a stronger moral fabric that holds America together. That, and there is no chance that Tulsi Gabbard wins the Presidency, let alone the Democratic nomination. There might even be a few of you who weren’t even aware that she was a candidate. That’s okay, she barely is, although she might give the free-falling former front-runner Joe Biden a run for his money.
But no, Rep. Gabbard isn’t going to win, and her campaign isn’t likely to last much longer. Could you imagine, though, if she did? In the craziest scenario, that scary tag-team of Buttigieg (who could win the Democratic bid) and a VP candidate like Gabbard could materialize…
Lord help us.
If we have ever been grateful to have a President and a leader like Donald Trump, in light of the options, the time to show that gratitude is now. Yes, we are consenting adults, but no, that doesn’t give us the right to do whatever we want.
We all know this, however, and we also know that in America we respect our neighbors, we value the innocence of our children, and we appreciate the moral differences of one another.
Picture this: nudity, sex, drugs, and vulgarity on every corner, in every neighborhood, in every home. Now open your eyes, because that isn’t a picture of the United States – yesterday, today, or ever.
