For all the Purists, EmoProgs, anyone contemplating sitting this election out, those who are easily swayed by the TEAGOP(Koch)MediaPunditry™, (and friends & family of such who are at their wit’s end at their stubborn insanity), this is for you.
This is a simple election. Just ask yourself: DO YOU HATE CITIZENS UNITED?
The next President will nominate a minimum of three justices to the Supreme Court. (Perhaps five.) If that’s Romney, we’re stuck with Citizens United and a Neocon SCOTUS for the next generation. And that would be just the beginning. They want to go back to appointing the Senate. Hell, they really don’t want anyone to vote.
Every American’s responsibility should be to STOP ROMNEY from being elected POTUS. He will be more of a puppet than W ever was.
That means voting third party is NOT AN OPTION. Not until we have instant runoff elections.
I don’t care if you hate President Obama. Stop pretending Nader voters didn’t fuck the rest of the country (and the globe) in 2000, you whining toddler.
McSweeney’s explains perfectly: “The results were cataclysmic. In a year where a few thousand votes would have swung the election, George W. Bush was elected. Within two years, he had started two wars. These wars cost 137,000 civilian lives, 6,419 American soldiers’ lives (4,488 in Iraq and 1,931 in Afghanistan), cost upwards of $4 trillion, and put the country $15,904,628,648,096 in debt. He put together the most conservative Supreme Court in American history, and the world was thrown into the worst global recession in 79 years.”

If you have a functioning brain stem, you must understand that Romney along with Norquist and the Koch Brother’s help will end our Democracy. It’s happening now with the GOP in Congress, who got there because a bunch of Progressives pouted, and stayed home.
And NO. They’re NOT THE SAME. NOT EVEN CLOSE.
Romney (via Norquist, Rove, Adelson, & Kochs) will:
Start a war with Iran (Sheldon Adelson has already paid for this.) …. Reinstate Don’t Ask Don’t Tell …. Outlaw gay marriage, and try to outlaw gay adoption …. Repeal Roe v Wade …. Attempt to outlaw (female) contraception/allow PHARMA to charge what ever they want for it …. End/close the CFPB …. Repeal Dodd Frank and go back to deregulated finance (that needs MORE regulation.) …. Repeal the ACA and make sure the NON-PROFIT exchanges which are set to destroy the current FOR-PROFIT Health Insurance Industry, never open …. Repeal Lilly Ledbetter Act …. Attempt to require prayer in schools ….. Make Creationism a requirement in public school curriculum …. End the EPA …. End the Department of Education …. Starve our public schools even more than they already are so they can PRIVATIZE the entire education system in the US …. Make ALL our Universities FOR PROFIT …. Privatize Medicare …. Privatize Social Security …. End Medicaid …. End Unemployment Insurance …. End Food Stamps …. End Disability Insurance …. RE-Privatize Airport Security (that allowed 19 men with box cutters to board 4 airliners.) …. Outlaw Labor Unions …. End the FDA …. Go back to ALL the Bush policies that destroyed the global economy …. Get rid of the Minimum Wage …. Make all 50 states Right To Work (for next-to-nothing)
It wouldn’t surprise me if they legalize rocket launchers via the NRA lobby. The list is endless.
A vote for ANYONE other than President Obama = a vote for Romney via the hackable e-voting machines that can be flipped by remote. Third party votes won’t be watched, and can be siphoned off so simply (link)
GROW THE FUCK UP.
President Obama is more Progressive than half the Dems in Congress. Only SIX have ever voted to fund the closing of GITMO, even though President Obama signed an EO on his 2nd day in office.
And the GOP & BlueDogs wrote the NDAA and had enough votes to override a Presidential Veto, which is why President Obama wrote what he wrote in his signing statement (link).
If you’re going to whine about something, you’d better be certain you’ve got ALL the information, not just what some pundit, agency, or politician wants you to know (link).
If the GOP take control, this might be your last Presidential election. DO NOT STAY HOME. DO NOT PISS AWAY YOUR VOTE. The entire WORLD will be effected by it.
