my friends know, I am NOT a huge fan of Barack Obama. I was criticized
for not voting in the last presidential election. I'm very opinionated
(haha) but with the exception of making it abundantly clear that I think
Bush and Cheney ruined this country, I don't usually take a public
stand with regard to politics. But, I gotta say, Paul Ryan scares the
hell out of me.
Personally, I find the whole abortion issue
distasteful but I do, however, believe in a woman's right to make the
choice in certain circumstances and, I don't believe our government
should tell us what we can and cannot do with our bodies. There should
be a clear separation of church and state. This is only one of the
issues on the Romney/Ryan agenda. Please take a few minutes to read and
research about these men and be informed! Ask yourself if you want your
daughters and granddaughter's reproductive futures legislated by
clueless old men in congress simply for political gain. Ryan's ideals
could set the women's movement back decades.
Again, I'm not a
fan of Obama but a non-vote for him is a vote for Romney, his 13% tax
bracket and a whole lot of other scary things that go bump in the night.
Here's a couple of blurbs from the Obama-Biden website.
Paul Ryan would take us backward on women’s health:
Ryan cosponsored a bill that could ban in-vitro fertilization, as well
as many common forms of birth control, including the pill. It could also
ban all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest. He supported
letting states prosecute women who have abortions and doctors who
Paul Ryan would take us backward on equal rights:
Ryan voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which helps women
fight for equal pay for equal work. He voted against repealing the
discriminatory policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and supports writing
discrimination into the Constitution by amending it to ban gay marriage.
