SAVE, an organization campaigning for serious reform of the Violence Against Women Act and its feminist domestic violence industry, provides examples of the threats, lies and smears VAWA advocates have used.

I suppose I could be wrong, but I can hardly see how any “reform” of VAWA can be of any practicable use to anyone. Particularly from a Traditionalist Conservative point of view.
To borrow from the wisdom of our founders, What is ‘violence against women?’ Who can give it any definition that would not leave the utmost latitude for evasion? I hold it to be impracticable; and from this I infer that its prevention, whatever fine declarations may be inserted in any law respecting it, must altogether depend on public opinion, and on the general spirit of the people and of the government.
The point is simply this, are we not, by vying for “reform” rather than elimination of such a law, effectively legitimizing the illegitimate? What (legitimate) business has the federal government in attempting to control domestic, personal and family issues? How can this ever be done efficiently (not to mention fairly, and judiciously) regardless of someone’s supposed good intentions? What does it say about us as a People that we think we need the federal government to micro-manage every aspect of our lives, right down to how married men and women treat one another physically and/or emotionally, and how each perceives his/her treatment by the other physically or emotionally? This is the stuff of totalitarianism; to what end do we seek to “reform” the irreformable? As I’ve said before, this act should be relegated to the ash heap. Domestic violence management, or its oversight, is not a legitimate function of the federal government.
I entirely agree with you. Though reform of the bill would be better than nothing, I do not wish to devote my own energies to reforming it. The federal government should not be in the domestic violence business.
