A question regarding Single Issue voters, for a segment called "Ask the Wingnut Wizard"

Here’s a question: Single issues are a big wingnut wedge. Like, the Catholic church might well share social justice and social welfare issues totally with the Dem agenda, but the SINGLE ISSUE of Choice sways a fair number of them into the Rethug column. Wingnuts often guilt that Catholics ought to be TOTALLY anti-Choice or else not pretend to be Catholics.

But this election cycle wingnuts have been trying to debunk the Lib strength with women by claiming that women are NOT so simple as to be swayed by the single issue of “women’s (contraception; reproductive rights)” but instead are MULTI-FACETED, are household budget managers, concerned and affected by the economy, work, etc.

So, Wingnut Wizard, which is it, manipulate and exploit the single issues gambit or NOT? I'm SO confused!1

1. 2nd question for "Ask the Wingnut Wizard": Voting or vote surpression

Wingnuts are excellent at veterans' baiting, like constantly ragging about how many gave their lives for the right to vote, so where do the widespread restrictions on voting that wingnuts espouse fit in?!1 Are they for voting or only for voting that supports them, otherwise vote *suppression*?!1

2. 3rd question for "Ask the Wingnut Wizard": Life really?!1 or lots of anti-life in wingnuttiness?!1

So wingnuts get to be *frothing* on the issue of "life". Yet, after those fetuses (feti?) get to be past a certain age when they need social safety net resources, they face the relentless cut cut cut of the wingnut philosophy. And the cuts lead to diminished education and ability to qualify for employment, perhaps on to crime and even to the death penalty. So, Wingnut Wizard, which is it, Life or a prolonged, lingering misery and possible execution?!1 Not to mention the wingnut obsession with war war war!1

3. I get so tired of them saying women are economy voters, not abortion voters

Family planning does affect the economy. You ask a woman if planning how many children she is going to have and when has anything to do with her family's economy and she will say it has a lot to do with her family's economy.
