No secret that I was not an Obama worshipper back in 2008.
But, I’m voting for him this time around. There are other blogs out there who piously state that they don’t have a “dog in this race” to which I say…bullshit!
Do PUMAs really want the Supreme Court to go to the Rethugs? Do you really want your wives and daughters to lose all rights to make decisions about their own bodies?
Do you really want a “bishop” who asked a pregnant woman with blood clots that threatened her life why she “should have it “easy” by choosing to abort?
Have you taken the time to peek out beyond your own noses to see how this country could deteriorate in so many ways? Regardless of who wins, we’ll have continued hard economic times…but there’s more to life than economics. Do you really want to elect a mob that apparently disrespects women, blacks, Hispanics and just about everybody who isn’t one of THEM? Especially if you aren’t a “Christian” THEM?
Recently, I’ve been listening to Mike Malloy again on my Kindle Fire via TuneIn. Mike, a true progressive now sadly relegated to asking for donations to keep his show on the air, once held the view that a loss to the Republicans would create the final catalyst for change to the system if they finally screwed up.
Well, he’s changed his opinion. He has come to the conclusion that at this juncture in time, to allow power to fall back into the hands of the GOP might finally quash any chance to win back our system. They will be in a position crush the life out of the middle class and pave the way for the ultimate corporatization of this country. Liberals won’t have a chance to breathe.
For Mike Malloy to come around to this position is a big deal. Apparently, some lefty blogs don’t see it this way. But, frankly, there is too much at stake to allow the GOP into power, regardless of what you think of Obama and the Democratic Party. No matter what, they are about all we have at this point.
So, that’s it. If you really want to see the guy whose foreign policy advisers come from the Bush Administration get back into power (something like 17 out of 25 are former Bushites), go ahead and don’t vote.If you want this bully CEO to come in and follow right along with the likes of all those GOPers who think rape is not a big deal, who think women are sluts if they get birth control in their health plan, who is right in line with the party that now shoves vaginal probes at us for no medical reason...go ahead and don’t vote.
If Romney wins this election, what will you be saying then? Will you blame Obama…or yourselves?
Me? I’ll be blaming a lot of people who are still stuck in 2008 and refuse to face the reality of the political world we live in now. It’s time to grow up…
