Election 2012

May I offer one other very important piece to consider?

During the next President's term (the next 4 years), it is likely that there will be two vacancies on the Supreme Court due to age and poor health. The two justices are both moderates. The job of appointing replacements will fall to whomever is President at the time, in this case, either Romney or Obama. If Romney is elected, those appoin
tments would most assuredly be for 2 extreme conservative justices. If that happens, it is all but guaranteed that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Once that happens, women's health and reproductive rights will take a giant step backward. I don't want my daughter or my granddaughter to be treated like chattel or property (is that the same thing??) or incapable twits who have their lives and their health controlled by the political and religious fanatics of the extreme right. Do you??

I'm not a political person as a rule, but this is too important an issue to ignore. The only way to ensure that those positions on the Supreme Court are not filled by some rabid, fanatical Conservative is to vote for Obama. Voting for any other candidate will not work. Whoever, is appointed could be on the Court for DECADES. We need sanity on the Court to keep women from being treated some lesser species, with no rights at all.

Vote for Obama for the sake of women everywhere....please!

Election 2012

I believe that it is your right to believe any damn fool thing you want, but it is my right, and my duty, to try to stop you from achieving public office where your outrageous beliefs could impact the laws we live under! 

This is beyond appalling!   Please watch this video of an actual candidate in the state of Indiana:

So This Guy Running For Senate Said Rape Was God's Intention. No, Not That Guy. ANOTHER ONE.

You were probably thinking I was talking about this guy. Or maybe this guy who called rape just another "method of conception." 
But no, there's ANOTHER ONE. Indiana U.S. Senate Republican candidate, Richard Earl Mourdock, is very pro-life. To prove he's committed, he went ahead and actually called pregnancy from rape a "gift from god." I'm not joking; he says that rape is something "God intended to happen.” Seriously, there's actual video footage of a human being saying this.
*  *  *  *  *
INDIANAPOLIS (AP)   [Democratic Rep. Joe] Donnelly, a moderate Democrat who opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is in danger, has spent much of his campaign highlighting Mourdock's tea party ties and trying to accuse him of being too extreme even for conservative Indiana. 

Men and Women, do not vote for anyone who supports or agrees with these unbelievably insane ideas! Think of your daughters and your granddaughters, and vote accordingly!!  Women make up half of our population. We have the power to keep these men OUT of our government. Use that power and vote !

The economy is NOT the only issue in this election!  It may not even be the most important one!
