Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘New Hampshire Republican – Don’t Punish Domestic Violence Because ‘People Are Always Free To Leave’
‘On Tuesday, State Rep. Mark Warden (R-U Surprised?) reminded the country that, yes, the Republican War on Women is very really and has dire consequences when left unchecked’.
‘During a committee meeting to discuss whether to advance a bill to the floor that would reduce the penalty for “simple assault”, Warden said the following about how the bill is applicable to domestic violence’:
“Some people could make the argument that a lot of people like being in abusive relationships. It’s a love-hate relationship. It’s very, very common for people to stick around with somebody they love who also abuses him or her. Right? We all know that it’s not uncommon. So, is the solution to those kind of dysfunctional relationships going to be more government, another law? I’d tend to say no. People are always free to leave.”
