If you look at recent history, the Republican Party was pretty dominant in
the 1950's with a very popular Republican President in office, yet the graph
shows a very small relative percentage of unmarried mothers. 

These outbursts of yours are curious, Bob. Is there some fundamental liberal
concept that is being attacked here? I was not aware of doing that. 

Obviously, there's millions of correlations possible, though. Some
correlations become interesting because they could identify cause-and-effect

But a correlation does not a rule make. Still, when we say to a woman,
"We'll pay you if you have a baby..." I think that resonates with some
Americans as a very likely motive for becoming pregnant. 

Proof? Of course not. But it's certainly a much more plausible relationship
than Elephant calves.
