"Much is rightly made about the Republican War on Women. But the Republicans are fighting a more deliberate battle against the poor. It is audacious, insensitive and ugly. Republicans have clearly decided that the War on the Poor is good politics."

"The Republican Party seems to have forgotten that this is a nation with a lot of Christians, not a Christian nation."— J. Blady
"Our founding fathers made sure that that would be the case, and that people who did not choose to follow any particular religious dogma would not be compelled to do so. The principles they inculcated into our governmental system may be called god-given, but they would be the same in any enlightened society."

"When the Serbian forces came to Miljevina, they turned the local gymnasium into a rape camp. Families were separated, and women and children were kept in the gym, where all of the women and girls over ten years old were raped in the first few days.... There are rape camps all over the country. Thousands of women are being raped and killed...."

"In the words of Gen. George Washington in his circular to the states, shortly after victory in the American war of independence:"
"A theocratic or tribalist Right that argues for public policies by invoking divine revelation to some ancient prophet or immemorial custom dating back to ‘the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition,’ is profoundly, radically un-American."
"Republicans would like to pretend like Congressman Akin's substitution of superstition for science is a lone problem but it's not: they're all magical thinkers, on nearly every issue. They don't get their answers on climate change from climatologists, they get them from the Book of Genesis. Hence Sharia Law in America is a dire threat, and global warming a hoax. ..."

"And he [Akin] did it by illustrating how the ‘war on women’ is part of a larger issue. What Todd Akin said and believes doesn't just play into a media-catchy, election year ‘war on women’ narrative. It's part of a reactionary, fundamentalist backlash to modernity. It's a war on science. It's a war on facts. It's a war on critical thinking."
ABratt’s Favorite Comments From This Article:
"This is a great piece! This ‘denialist’ philosophy extends to; global warming & the ‘theory’ of evolution. The Texas GOP's platform actually has a position against ‘critical thinking’(not kidding). There is a determination to destroy every aspect of the New Deal. Because it might give an individual the ability (or economic means) to determine the most important choices in their lives."
"There's just something too weird and irrational about all this. There are plenty of people that still question evolution as well. How is it possible to have a dialogue with people that hold these beliefs? Take a look at the beliefs of the Mormon church - they even baptize dead people from other religions. That note that Romney put in the Wailing Wall was recovered and it had ‘Joseph Smith was here’ written on it. So strange..."

"Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's new vice-presidential pick, is best known as the author of and lead cheerleader for a budget plan that would decimate the social contract and require the middle class to pay for massive tax breaks for the wealthy. But it would be a mistake to focus just on his horrible economic ideas. Paul Ryan is not just a one-trick pony.
For instance, while Ryan preaches Ayn Rand's gospel of economic greed and personal freedoms, he isn't so fond of individual freedom when it comes to gay people or women. In fact, when it comes to reproductive choice, Ryan is nostalgic for the 1950s. He co-sponsored a so-called "Personhood bill," which would classify abortion as first-degree murder and outlaw some of the most common types of birth control. A similar bill in Mississippi was rejected last year by 55 percent of voters. That's right: on reproductive freedom and birth control, Paul Ryan is to the right of Mississippi.

ABratt's Favorite Quote From The Web
ROMNEY/ PAUL QUOTE:
"Romney had to energize the base, which is why he picked Ryan...but he probably already had these people. What he does with a Ryan pick is turn off the middle and people who see SS as their right and not an entitlement. SS is something Americans pay into with our Tax money. It is the safety net that brought the elderly out of poverty. Now, you have two rich guys coming in and saying that you need balance the budget on the backs on those that have the least, while giving tax breaks to the wealthiest."

"On the American Family Association's radio program AFA Today, the hosts wasted no time lining up a far-right Evangelical minister, Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries, to tell the audience that among the dead in the theater only those who were true Christians have gone to heaven. The rest, he suggested, are already consigned to hell."
