GOP marriages and families more successful

Family stability

In 2010, Naomi Cahn and June Carbone published a book on family life and political culture called “Red Families v. Blue Families” in which they argued that politically conservative families were more likely to embrace outmoded views about sex, gender, and marriage that are ill suited to the new economy and the more egalitarian world that we now live in. By contrast, blue America emphasizes education, delayed parenthood, and gender egalitarianism, all values that are supposed to equip its citizens to build comparatively stronger and more stable families in twenty-first-century America.

BUT … Cahn and Carbone used state-level statistics to support their claim and many blue states have many, many red counties. A new study using county-level statistics flips Cahn and Carbone on their pointy little heads.

W. Bradford Wilcox of the University of Virginia studied the 470 largest counties in the United States. They account for about two-thirds of the U.S. population. He found that red counties “have a higher share of their population that is married. This is true with and without controls for region, education, race, and age at the county level (and weighting for population size).” Wilcox attributes this phenomenon to higher levels of religious participation and “normative support” for marriage.

Somebody famous (and most assuredly dead) said: “The best laid plans of mice and men oft do go astray.” It was probably Shakespeare. I know somebody will correct me, probably Chrissy, since she’s one of the smartest people I know. The plan was to highlight some of the spate of senseless murders of innocent people being committed by illegal vermin. A vile puke named Juan Francisco Lopez had been deported five times but kept coming back to San Francisco because it was a ‘sanctuary city.’ He used a gun that was stolen from a federal agent to murder Kathryn Steinle for no reason whatever. I decided against trying to do a post because I couldn’t keep up with the accusations flying in all directions. The right blames the democrat-friendly sanctuary policies while the left, of course, blames the right for being against amnesty. The fact remains that Mexico will not allow skilled labor to leave but pushes the ignorant and criminal element back over the border for the stupid gringos to deal with.


Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the five-time deportee illegal alien with a rap sheet of seven felonies, confessed that he knew he was safe in San Francisco because it was a “sanctuary city.”

** Barack Obama passed illegal executive amnesty late last year.
