MinkaGrl01 is such a pawn.

Just look at yourself, posting page 9 like a good little sheep.

You need to read the Rules of the Internet and educate yourself! Pay attention, people...

"Then understand that the judicial system has the authority to interpret the constitutionality of those laws, which they've done and they have stood (for now). You obviously disagree with those interpretations, and so do the justices that held the minority opinion. But that's how the Constitution works; it gave that power to that branch of government, not GeniusBoy, or Ron Paul."



So if they made a law banning the constitution which outlines our unalienable rights, you believe that's in within their right.

Unbelievable.

But how can they be misguided when they are pursuing the only options available to them? Voting, protesting, running for political office, lobbying people who are already in office, educating people, messaging the masses...what are the well- guided things they should do instead?

But he said he could.

He said he would cut the deficit in half and have unemployment under 7% or it would be a one term proposition. Now he wants more time

[/devils advocate]

I can honestly say I hate what Washington has become, and you can't place all the blame on Obama and Democrats, just like you can't put all the blame on the GOP. They all hold some blame, they need to remember how to compromise.

"You know who you're going to vote for, and you proved that when you dismissed women's issues as a "manufactured problem." Maybe you're unaware, but the steps that have been taken all across this country to limit reproductive rights are very, very real...there is nothing manufactured about it. So you're either very ignorant or you're exceptionally biased in favor of conservatives. I think it might be both."


[NO]

1. I currently plan on voting for Gary Johnson (L). I have only voted (R) for President once; that was W. Bush back in 2000. I grudgingly voted Badnarik (L) in '04, due to being beyond fed up with W. Bush (I finally decided to vote L that year over not voting about a couple of hours before the polls closed).

If Gary Johnson goes full retard now that he's on the LP ticket, I'll just write in No Confidence like I sometimes do. For example, I did that in '08 (and went so far as to mail in an absentee ballot from Iraq just to vote "No Confidence")--and that was after voting for McCain in the primary.

I assure you that I am neither very ignorant nor very biased in favor of conservatives (at least not in the current GOP sense), and I don't know what the hell you'd call me if not an independent/swing voter--I just almost never swing Democrat (I swing between R, L, and 'fuck it").



2. When I said "manufactured problem", I meant the supposed "war on women", which is imaginary. There is a campaign to limit abortion and federal funding for BC, but that isn't a "war on women"--the motivation isn't misogyny. That's analogous to the fringe-right wing saying that Obama pulling us out of Iraq/Afghanistan amounts to him being a militant-Muslim sympathizer.

^^^?

You've just described exactly what I said in my original post:

Quote :
"There are certainly people who switch parties, but they don't necessarily do it routinely, and they tend to do it for external reasons that a candidate can't really control all that much. For example, Obama could certainly play up Bush's failures and win over moderate conservatives for one election, but the fact that Bush was horrible wasn't really in Obama's control. Also, true swing voters are often drawn to third party candidates."


And given your description of yourself as a swing voter, you really think candidates should duke it out trying to earn the swing vote? Even though you're admitting it's very unlikely you're going to swing Democrat and you've otherwise been voting third party/no confidence except for Bush one time?

(And it is partly motivated by misogyny. Otherwise, guys like Romney would have harsher words for Viagra-fueld men like Limbaugh who go around calling women sluts because they take birth control.)


And while I can edit, I should add that the post you were agreeing with was agreeing with this post:

Quote :
"Eaton Bush: Its a made up issue like so many of the other "issues" that are being rolled out to take attention away from the real issue of the shitty economy, high deficit and unemployment."


You, DaBird, and Eaton Bush (excellent company you have there) seem to be pushing this notion that women's issues are not real issues. They are made up and manufactured by the Democratic Party to woo potential Republican voters and third party voters to vote for Democrats. But, like I've said (and you've agreed), they are very real issues right now.

So I don't think you've really explained your post about it being a "manufactured problem." Is it just the rhetorical device, "war on women," that you object to? Cause you didn't mention the "War on Women" in your original post and you seemed to be talking about a lot more than rhetoric.

Me, continued:

While I think the "war on women" is rhetorically over-the-top (and I suspect it's supposed to be), I also think this business about women's issues being "a made up issue," "shit for the simpletons to eat up," is an even more extreme kind of rhetoric.

And at least "war on women" points to real issues of the day.

The "shit for simpletons" points to what? Don't be worried about Republicans. Secretly, they aren't going to pursue the platform that openly affects women. And please ignore the fact that they already have pursued it in the United States and all over the world for at least a decade. ?

John Kerry, I'll always thin of him as the Heinz ketchup gals husband. Mr. Mrs. Heinz ketchup.

Mittens is just as knowledgeable about foreign policy as Obama was when he was elected. The administration touts their foreign policy advantage like it's a huge edge. It's really not, and if they were so inclined it would be easy for the republicans to talk about how Obama has followed up on almost none of his promises like closing gitmo, how we continue to murder innocent civilians via drones, etc.

Of course, they won't because these policies will continue under whichever president we end up with next. It's amazing, Obama has been quite possibly the worst president in history in terms of civil rights, but the republicans can't attack him there because that would mean wanting to end the drug war, maybe stop killing civilians with drones, give people trials, etc.
