Mitt Romney Quote Shows Why He Should Not Get Votes from the Poor and the Middle-Class 1


“If you think that I should spend my entire campaign carefully choosing how everything I say relates to people, as opposed to saying my own experience and telling my own experience, that would make me a very different person than I am,” he said. “I’m going to tell people my own experiences in life, and I realize they’re not the same as everybody else.”  But, Mitt, you are applying for becoming President of a country of primarily poor people, many without jobs, young people with poor schools getting their education budgets cut, people who cannot afford healthcare, people who are having problems with housing, buying groceries, caring for our elderly, etc. IF WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY DOES NOT RELATE TO US, why should we invest our time in listening to you tell us “your experience?”  We know all we need to know about you rich people from the movies and TV!  We use “your experience” to escape our miserable existence, not improve our lives!  We are looking for a President who will tell us how his mission in life is to improve the human condition in America for the majority of the people, not the “TOP 1%,” who are doing very well.  From you own words, we don’t need a Mitt Romney!


Just as I was ending this article, I found a post on Huffington Post where Mitt Romney completely contradicts himself saying how much he cares about us and wants to help.  Did he take a university course on lying with a straight face and without remorse— felt inwardly or outwardly?

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney Pressed About Support For Gay Rights During 2012 New Hampshire GOP Debate

Rick Santorum was asked what he would do if he had a gay son.  Rick said he would give him “love and respect.” Crumbs from his father’s life. No equal opportunity to marry the one he loves and no opportunity to have a family raising adopted children.  Santorum’s and Romney’s America: Land of the free, home of the brave.  Full happiness and rights…for heterosexuals, only!

“Tammy Baldwin Runs Straight At The Tea Party” – Matt Taylor

Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WIS)

Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin wants to be the first openly gay candidate elected to the United States Senate. In an exclusive interview with The National Memo over the weekend, she made clear how she means to go about doing it: running straight at the Tea Party.

Suggesting the GOP will face an historic rebuke in the 2012 elections just two years after Tea Party activists helped to sweep it into power, Baldwin pinned her candidacy on the two pillars of the modern progressive movement that have both faced concerted assaults from newly-elected Midwestern governors in the past year: strong unions and a robust welfare state.

“I can promise you 2012 is a very different election year,” she said Saturday. “When [Governor] Scott Walker and [Congressman] Paul Ryan started to attack everything we hold dear as Wisconsinites, our rich progressive history, our belief in a strong retirement, people in Wisconsin stood up and became organized and engaged.” Walker led a successful effort to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public employees and Ryan’s Medicare privatization scheme passed in the U.S. House only to die in the Senate last year.” [Click here for entire article.]

Marriage Equality USA logo


While the country is distracted by the New Hampshire primary, New Hampshire’s state legislature is swiftly moving to abolish gay marriageThey could vote on the issue as soon as this Thursday.

Craig Stowell is a New Hampshire native who recently testified at the New Hampshire State House to ask the legislature not to pass HB 437, the bill that would abolish marriage equality. But Craig isn’t gay — in fact, he’s a straight married Marine, and a conservative Republican.

Craig knows firsthand how damaging it can be when the government says it’s okay to treat the LGBT community like second-class citizens. Craig’s brother Calvin was horribly bullied as a kid because he’s gay. “There were nights that I worried I may wake up and he wouldn’t be there any longer; crushed by the misery he was forced to endure,” Craig says.

So Craig started a petition on asking the New Hampshire legislature to reject HB 437. The vote could come in a matter of daysPlease click here to sign Craig’s petition right now — your signature will be delivered to the New Hampshire legislature immediately.

Since New Hampshire legalized marriage equality in 2009, more than 1,800 loving same-sex couples have been married. Polls show that a large majority of New Hampshire residents support that right — 62%, according to a recent poll from the University of New Hampshire.

“When my wife Berta and I were married, Calvin was right there by my side as my best man,” Craig says. “I want the opportunity to be his best man when he finds the person he wants to marry. With your help, I know we can ensure that freedom will still be there when he does.”

New Hampshire legislators may think they can sneak in HB 437 during the ruckus surrounding the New Hampshire primary, but they need to know that their actions are being watched and that people in New Hampshire and around the country won’t stand for this vicious step backward.

Time is short — click here right now to sign Craig’s petition demanding that the New Hampshire legislature reject HB 437, the bill that would abolish marriage equality.

Thanks for being a change-maker,

The Biggest Loser at Saturday Night’s GOP Debate

Republican candidates hit the debate stage in New Hampshire last night, just a few days before the state’s primary—and though frontrunner Mitt Romney was expected to take a beating, his rivals failed to land any blows. Rick Santorum, who lost the Iowa caucuses by only eight votes, went after Romney first, dismissing him as a job-cutting venture capitalist and CEO, but the attempt fell flat. In fact, writes The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz, Santorum was the night’s biggest loser, failing to land a single memorable moment and forfeiting the chance to build on his virtual tie in Iowa. Plus, Paul Begala, Michelle Cottle, and more weigh in on the debate; also, watch video highlights.

Sunday Morning Message …For the Instruction of Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum, Jack of Hearts - Cartoon

I have been hearing Rick Santorum talk on and on about his catholic upbringing, how it is the “way things are the way things are supposed to be and how he tells one audience he would not turn his religious opinions into our laws…and, then, tells another that he would.  You know how politicians are:  Tell an audience what it wants to hear, what will secure their vote. Rick, it’s a sad way to make a living.  Yesterday, as I thought of you and your campaign, God lead me the part of the Bible which talks about righteousness as God sees it.  I hope you will read today’s post and be changed by it. God so loved the people you persecute that He sent His Son to die for their sins, long before even their known relatives were born.  As a child, I was taught, “Jesus Loves Me, Yes, I Know, For the Bible Tells Me So.”  No mortal man has a lock on God or Jesus. We are ALL sinners and come short of the Glory of God.  Rick, you seem to be a very religious man.  Do you have any inkling how the Bible says God sees your righteousness?

The Bible says that our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment.
