We must not forget what this election is really about: defeating Barack Obama.
Mitt Romney, 1/31/12
Really? That’s what it’s really about? Not like, I don’t know, the economy, healthcare, human rights (gay, reproductive, etc.), foreign policy, social issues, immigration, the environment, education…? Not what’s best for Americans?
”The Republican leadership in the Senate complained that the new iteration of the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is expanding the law to help gay men, lesbians, and immigrants.”
This is seriously twisted, Republican Senators, especially since 100% of you say you’re Christians. I’m just going to casually leave this excerpt from Matthew 25:31-46 here:
“‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance… Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels… Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’”

10% of all deaths in Netherlands are through euthanasia.
In 2010 136058 people passed away in the Netherlands, while only 3136 did so through euthanasia. That is around 2.3% of the total deaths, nowhere near Santorum’s bullshit figure.
50% of euthanasia is committed on unwilling patients who must have forgotten to wear their anti-death panel magic bracelet.
The law that decriminalized euthanasia in the Netherlands is very strict. It requires the patient to have explicitly asked to be euthanized over a sustained period of time, that their doctor to have concluded there is absolutely no possibility of recovery, that the patient is fully aware of their condition, and that another independent doctor alongside various bureaucrats and lawyers verify all of this stuff. Any doctor who violates this faces murder charges.”
In the past, Limbaugh said women are “emotional” voters unlike men, that women’s lives are “easier” than men’s, that the “feminazi grand plan” is to remove the competitive nature of men, and that women “have neutered the business of politics.” He suggested Danica Patrick is not a great racecar driver because she’s female. He referred to a female sports reporter as “boob-alicious, booty-licious,” and called Hillary Clinton the “sex-retary of State.
