Ken Buck’s anti-female principles and beliefs made him unelectable in 2010
As long as Colorado Republicans nominate candidates who don't believe in women's rights or small government when it comes to social issues, they will lose to Big Government Democrats who will spend and tax them into poverty. People have a right to believe what they believe, but they don't have a right to impose immoral restrictions on women, gays or anyone else, and they should and will be defeated as Ken Buck was in 2010. Yes, I voted for him because other issues are more important to me this year, but I have been a single-issue voter in previous elections. Buck's loss of the women's votes to Sen. Michael Bennet by a 56% to 40% margin shows that a lot of other people still are single-issue voters, and that issue is women's rights. While Buck won the men's vote, he lost a lot of men who voted with their loved ones. Richard Stacy makes the point in his op-ed piece, The Ken Buck Lesson.
