"Moms work. All moms. Stay at home parents understand that, and we don’t want to be at war with other moms. In fact, one of our bedrock principles is that parents know best what is right for their families, and so parents should get to choose. But we get really upset when political parties try to boost families where both parents work outside the home but ignore families where only one parent does. Too much of politics is trying to buy votes by supporting certain blocs at the expense of others. Why not just concentrate on growing the economy, rather than trying to bribe voters, and in the process saddling our kids with tons of debt? Support families, and then let those families make their own choices. We know best, not government. So stop trying to manipulate mommies."
