Texas 60 Year War on Women.

 

There is currently a court case that began in Texas resulting from former Governor Rick Perry signing the  House Bill 2 (HB2) in 2013. The HB2 bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, requires abortion clinics to meet the same standards as hospital-style surgical centers and mandates that a doctor has admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where he or she performs abortions. As well as many other restrictions. The State Representative Jason Isaac co-signed this bill and ran unopposed in the 2016 primary election. Yipee!

The entire state of Texas has 10 abortion clinics, prior to the good Governors bill Texas had 40 clinics. For reference purposes, California has 522 clinics that perform abortions. California is the most populated state in the US followed by Texas. The current laws in place make it almost impossible for a woman to get an abortion without waiting weeks if not months for an appointment. By the time they are able to get to an appointment they may be passed the 20-week mark. This is breaking a Constitutional right. The doctors have admitted there is no way they will be able to provide abortions to as many women that seek them.

Since the law was enacted there has been a significant decrease in medical abortions (taking a pill). Many women prefer this to avoid a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, with the new Texas law, you need to take each pill in front of a doctor. That is 4 office visits when there are only 10 locations in the entire state. Some women are more than 300 miles away from the nearest clinic, many women who seek abortion do not have the means to travel. This is why many have abortions because they are unable to financially provide. A study is currently being conducted to get numbers on how many at home abortions are happening in Texas, it can and will happen again.

Medical abortions have dropped 70% which is a huge number. A significant increase in second-trimester abortions have been reported, since the new law was enacted. The lack of access to abortions and longer wait times are to blame for this increase. Complications can occur during an abortion as with any medical procedure or medication. There is a higher risk of complications the longer you wait to have the procedure done. The purpose the Republicans claimed they enacted these laws was to make sure abortions were done safely. Waiting to have a simple procedure done that could be done in a few minutes is not helping anyone. In fact, this bill is more costly for the woman and the providers. It makes it very inconvenient for all involved which seems to be the lawmakers agenda.

In 1973 Roe Vs. Wade made it to the Supreme Court. Roe, a single pregnant woman in Texas wanted an abortion. Wade, the Dallas County District Attorney. Roe could not afford to travel to a different state to have an abortion performed safely. The laws in Texas made it impossible for a woman to have a safe, clinical abortion with a licensed physician. Roe claimed Texas statutes were unconstitutional and she was protected by the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendment. She appealed decisions of the district court on behalf of herself and all women in the same predicament. A doctor and a couple came forward in the claim stating similar issues. The doctor had court cases pending for performing abortions in Texas.

Justice Blackmun

Texas urges that, apart from the Fourteenth Amendment, life begins at conception and is present throughout pregnancy, and that, therefore, the State has a compelling interest in protecting that life from and after conception. We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. When those trained in the respective disciplines of medicine, philosophy, and theology are unable to arrive at any consensus, the judiciary, at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer. [p160]- Justice Blackmun (delevering the opinion of the court) Roe Vs. Wade

A district court ruled that the Texas statute was indeed unconstitutional and a violation of the 9th amendment. The problem was it did nothing for abortions. It was basically a slap in the face and the reason why it was appealed to the Supreme Court. The same issues that were happening in the 1970s are again happening in the Supreme Court today, and again it is the state of Texas.

The principal thrust of appellant’s attack on the Texas statutes is that they improperly invade a right, said to be possessed by the pregnant woman, to choose to terminate her pregnancy. Appellant would discover this right in the concept of personal “liberty” embodied in the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause; or in personal, marital, familial, and sexual privacy said to be protected by the Bill of Rights or its penumbras, see Griswold v. Connecticut,381 U.S. 479 (1965); Eisenstadt v. Baird,405 U.S. 438 (1972); id. at 460 (WHITE, J., concurring in result); or among those rights reserved to the people by the Ninth Amendment, Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. at 486 (Goldberg, J., concurring).-Justice Blackmun (delevering the opinion of the court)Roe Vs. Wade

This decision changed history for millions of women. Prior to this court case in many places in the US women were having unsafe home abortions. The court decision on Roe Vs. Wade is a long but a very interesting read. It goes into the history of abortion and shows that it has been around and available prior to Geek and Roman times. The Justice was very clear from the beginning, this case is not about feelings it is about the Constitution and the question asking are Texas laws preventing American Citizens from their right.

All this, together with our observation, supra, that, throughout the major portion of the 19th century, prevailing legal abortion practices were far freer than they are today, persuades us that the word “person,” as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn…..

It should be sufficient to note briefly the wide divergence of thinking on this most sensitive and difficult question. There has always been strong support for the view that life does not begin until live’ birth. This was the belief of the Stoics. [n56] It appears to be the predominant, though not the unanimous, attitude of the Jewish faith. [n57] It may be taken to represent also the position of a large segment of the Protestant community, insofar as that can be ascertained; organized groups that have taken a formal position on the abortion issue have generally regarded abortion as a matter for the conscience of the individual and her family. [n58] As we have noted, the common law found greater significance in quickening. Physician and their scientific colleagues have regarded that event with less interest and have tended to focus either upon conception, upon live birth, or upon the interim point at which the fetus becomes “viable,” that is, potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid. [n59] Viability is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks. [n60] The Aristotelian theory of “mediate animation,” that held sway throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Europe, continued to be official Roman Catholic dogma until the 19th century, despite opposition to this “ensoulment” theory from those in the Church who would recognize the existence of life from [p161] the moment of conception. [n61] The latter is now, of course, the official belief of the Catholic Church.-Justice Blackburn (reciting the decision of the court) Roe Vs. Wade

 

It was decided. The Court ruled 7–2 that a right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman’s decision to have an abortion, but that this right must be balanced against the state’s two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting women’s health and protecting the potentiality of human life.

When Roe Vs Wade hit the Supreme Court abortion was already legal in 18 states. The affirmation of the Supreme Court made it legal in all states. In the 1970s, the minorities suffered the most. Abortion may have been legal in many of these states, but not everyone had a way to get to places where it was legal. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in 1972 alone, 130,000 women obtained illegal or self-induced procedures, 39 of whom died. Furthermore, from 1972 to 1974, the mortality rate due to illegal abortion for nonwhite women was 12 times that for white women.

In 1992, a similar case was seen in the Supreme Court regarding a women’s constitutional right to abortion, Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

The Casey decision said states may not place undue burdens on the constitutional right to abortion before fetal viability. Undue burdens, it said, included “unnecessary health regulations that have the purpose or effect of pres

Prior to the 19th-century, abortion was not considered a crime. The people nor the Catholic Church regarded or acknowledged life prior to birth. Today this is a huge issue, yet for thousands of years, it was never a problem. When Abortion Was A Crime

Today we are fighting this ridiculous claim again. Roe Vs. Wade disallowed many states and federal restrictions with its ruling any changes to that can be permanent trouble for women in the United States. It was fought in 1992, seems every 20 years or so someone decides women shouldn’t have free will.

This law is being fought in front of the Supreme Court yet again, Texas is the state that constantly seems to be fighting the Constitution. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of these abortion restrictions this will not only affect Texas but 11 other states that have also adopted these harsh laws and restrictions.

According to the Supreme Court ruling in 1973, every woman has the right to a safe and legal abortion. Our lawmakers have different ideas. There are only 8 Justices currently sitting on the Supreme Court. 4 of the Justices are Republicans and 4 of the Justices are Democrats. Unless they allow President Obama to appoint a Justice and a vote it may be a dead end. Justice Kennedy who is likely to be the deciding vote is trying to delay the vote as he is asking the Texas courts to do more fact finding.

The Republicans have said they won’t even consider voting or having a hearing  on any nominee that President Obama chooses. Republicans are trying to change the Constitution yet again.

4.27.15-tail-chase2

When someone asks me to describe a Republican politician I say “Watch a dog chase their tail in a circle” that’s what they do chase their tails going in circles until something breaks. They focus on a few insane components of legislation anything that makes life hard on your average person and they dig deep and rub it in. To add salt to the wound most of the last 97 bills that passed the house were regarding blocking other bills, war, energy companies, and homeland security.

Texas has been infringing women’s Constitutional rights for 60 years actually a lot longer, this has been going on prior to Supreme Court cases. It’s time to fight back in a bigger way. Abortion is a right of every American woman. Any laws that block an Americans rights should not be tolerated. Women need to stand up for themselves yet again. It’s like the civil rights movement never happened. Our future generations deserve to have a choice and their Constitutional rights protected. As an American, we should all do what we can. If someone was fighting for more gun control in the Supreme Court, Texas lawmakers would be quoting the Constitution. They only read part of the Constitution, it seems it was too much to read and they stopped at the Second Amendment.

Sweet Home Chicago Stops A Trump Rally!

I grew up in a suburb about 10 minutes from Chicago called River Grove. I lived in the city of Chicago as an adult for a short time with my family. I have never been prouder of my city after watching the protestors stop a Trump rally, pretty impressive Chicago. The only problem was the violence, that is completely uncalled for. Hate makes people pretty heated and crazy. I can’t believe what’s happening. If you’re going to protest something you can’t be violent, no matter what the opposition says.

I have seen some insane comments from family, friends, and strangers. The majority of my family and friends are in Chicago or the vicinity. Some of my family and friends were praising the protestors, happy to stop the hate the Trump rallies bring. Most not condoning the violence, but happy no one was seriously injured and Trump was stopped. We do live in a free country and Donald Trump should be allowed to speak, even if a large majority of it is hate. We have that right to say what we want, that is why I’m allowed to write this today.

Trump was able to go on stage he chose not to. “I spoke with law enforcement and made [the call to cancel] in conjunction with law enforcement, and I think we made a wise decision,” Trump said in a phone interview on MSNBC. He was afraid for his safety it had nothing to do with the Chicago police department in a statement Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press that the department did not recommend Trump call off the event and said they had sufficient manpower to cover the rally. Guglielmi said that the decision to shut down the event was made “independently” by the Trump campaign.

Some of my family and a few friends support Donald Trump. The reason I’ve been given by some for supporting this insane billionaire is “he speaks the truth”. They love the fact that he is uncandid and says what he feels and what he wants. Anyone who supports Donald Trump hates President Obama. Many have said “He’s not a pussy like Obama” or “No one will fuck with us if he’s our President.” for why they support this barbarian. Some supporters are angry with the Republican Party. They look at this as a slap in the GOP’s face.

I decided to take it to social media. I contacted a Trump supporter and a Democrat to look at the differences. I asked the same basic questions. Here are the answers I received. I decided to leave both parties anonymous even though they both agreed to be public. I do not know either of these people personally.

Who will or who did you vote for in the primary election?

Trump Supporter: “Michigan already had its primary and I voted for Donald Trump.”

Democrat: “I am ………, retired professor, and I plan to vote in the Pennsylvania primary as a Democrat. I support both Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Our primary is not an early one, and so I have not yet made a final ballot box choice.”

What makes your chosen candidate/party the choice for you?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter:

“I have several reasons I will list them out. 1. I believe that there isn’t any other candidate that understands the global economy like he does. The others have ideas on it but ZERO experience in it.

2. Trump is right our current trade deals are all in favor of other countries and have created jobs in other countries and not in the US.
3. Trumps business tax plan is enticing for businesses to start investing in America again and not other countries
4. I like the fact to go along with his lower business tax plan he will also imply tariffs on good brought into this country in order to force fair and equal trade. I have been to other countries and finding something there that is American made is damn near impossible.
5. Trump is right about other countries making their currency fluctuate which causes US jobs to be outsourced to other countries. Let me give you a perfect example of this. 4 years ago a friend of mine was hired into an Automotive OEM and his job was to localize sourcing parts to be made here in the US to build the vehicles (if you check 4 years ago the currency of the other countries was more on par with the US dollar). Now he is tasked with outsourcing the parts to be made in other countries because the cost is cheaper.
6. Trump is also right about the illegals flooding our country. The illegals cost this country billions per year in services intended for American citizens. Also since they work for cheaper labor it suppresses wages from going up.”

Democrat: “I believe that only the two Democratic candidates have the moral and intellectual seriousness and good will to serve. The Republican candidates seem to me unqualified — and worse.”
Do you normally vote, and if so what party do you normally lean toward when voting?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480
Trump Supporter:

“Yes I normally vote in elections because I want our country to be great and it can only do that if the right leadership is in place. As for which party I normally vote republican or libertarian.

I believe in holding our elected officials accountable
After all they work for us. However it seems today that both the democrats and republicans seem to treat us like we work for them”
Do you always vote for the Democratic Party?
voteblue
Democrat: “Yes, starting with John F. Kennedy in 1960.”
I asked both people what they thought of the other parties “extreme” candidate.
What do you think of Bernie Sanders?
GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter: 

“I have a lot to post on this so I will do it in pieces. I don’t think very highly of Bernie Sanders. I think Sanders if gathering supporters by promising “free stuff” (college, healthcare, etc..). Sanders tax plan is extremely punitive in nature as the more successful you are the more his plan punishes you with higher taxes. We currently have a system like that in place now but Sanders plan is much worse and as somebody in the top tax bracket under Sanders plan I would pay another $17k a year in taxes.
Sanders is a socialist and socialism has failed in all other countries. Socialism creates a culture of laziness.
Sanders proposed business tax plan would drive even more businesses out of this country. I read his plan and then I have read some reviews on it and several analyst have said his plan would cause a -9.5% GDP. For those who though 2008 economy was bad that is nothing compared to -9.5% GDP.
Also I heard and read Sanders comments about the violence in Chicago yesterday that shut down a Trump rally. Trump isn’t to blame for that as his supporters weren’t the ones being violent until they were attacked….. That comment pushing people to continue to do the same thing at other Trump rallies made me lose all respect for Bernie.”
What do you think of Donald Trump?
voteblue
Democrat: “Donald Trump, who seems to me a clever narcissist and a con man, has called up some of the worst forces in America — bigotry, hatred, violence, xenophobia, racism, homophobia. His supporters are at least as scary as he is.”
Just because I can I will disprove all of the Trump Supporters claims….
1. & 2. Trump trades with countries we shouldn’t be trading with such as China and Mexico. He has his products made by slave labor. He is not making his own products in the US why would we trust him with everything.
3. & 4.  reasons why he supported Trump was the tax plan and money issue. Unfortunetly for him they’re all bad ideas according to anylasts and fact check.
5. This is the same as the other two reasons really. I think what our young supporter is talking about is the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership. This is what Bernie Sanders is trying to get rid of as well, but he’s called a communist for wanting to do the same thing.

 

You can decide for yourself who you are voting for, but spreading fear and hatred in either party is not the answer. The protests are great if they’re not violent. There has been violence at many political rallies recently and that’s just sad. If people can not discuss politics without beating the shit out of each other we’re no better than Taiwan.

  10. Gene Hackman-You can’t talk actor-presidents and not think of this guy. He may not have the best vocabulary either, but he sure as hell will have a better vocabulary than Trump.523-3

Any good actor can be President. The majority of the time they are puppets. It would be better to have a puppet than Trump. Anything is better than Trump!

Slick Willie Committing Voter Fraud.

It has been brought to my attention that former President Bill Clinton committed voter fraud yesterday in Massachusettes. While doing some research on the subject, it looks as if not only was voter fraud committed in Massachusettes, but also in Iowa. Although, Bill was not a part of this particular fraud in Iowa. I decided to do some investigating on my own. What I found may or may not surprise you.

baby1.jpg

Bill Clinton stood outside of a polling facility shaking hands, signing, and taking pictures. He gave a speech with a voice amplifier outside of a polling facility. His very appearance kept voters out of the polling facility for hours. Causing some voters to give up and leave. As a former President, Bill should know what the election laws are. They are not even allowed to put signs within 150 feet of a polling facility. Why would he think it was ok to give a speech at a polling location in front of the door? Not only did Bill do this, but the Mayor of New Bedford helped him. This is the poorest community in the state. Why do you think Bill would block voters in a poor community?

Secretary of State William F. Galvin told the New York Times that he had to remind election workers that “even a president can’t go inside and work a polling place.”

“He can go in, but he can’t approach voters,” Galvin said. “We just took the extra precaution of telling them because this is not a usual occurrence. You don’t usually get a president doing this.”

Slick Willy, his nickname comes into play here. There is footage as well as pictures of Former President Bill Clinton walking into polling facilities and speaking with people. Kissing old people, babies, and signing things for people. This is highly illegal, he is not allowed to wonder into polling stations and campaign for his wife. He knows these laws, he was the President. This is highly illegal and the Clinton campaign should be fined. The major media stations will not broadcast this. They seem to be paid by the Clinton Campaign, which makes a lot of sense she is leading in campaign money. The funds are there to spare. The media (other than Fox News) makes Hillary look good. They do not even report on the truth. Everything from the top to the bottom of the Clinton campaign is lies. Hillary has changed her mind so many times, it will make your head spin. When she gives a speech now, she sounds like Bernie Sanders. How convenient, prior to this campaign Hillary was more moderate than anything. She admits that in an interview, all of a sudden she’s a progressive liberal?

In Iowa, Bill did not show up to the polling stations that I know of however, there are several cases of voter fraud. One voter count, I was appalled by. It was done by a head count, they never did the computerized polls like they do everywhere else in the country. If Iowa is so important, why wouldn’t they have the best technology available? They count heads, it’s absolutely ridiculous!

The people need to know what they’re getting into with a Clinton vote. As far as I’m concerned after researching this and seeing so much more. I am convinced without a doubt that the Clinton campaign committed voter fraud yesterday to win Massachusetts. It was so close that Bill’s little stunt most likely cost Bernie Sanders the win in that state. I truly believe that if anyone but Bernie wins this election we are in big trouble. I’m starting to re-think the whole #VoteBlueNoMatterWho this broad scares me.

What The Fuck Democrats!?!?

I’m truly afraid for my children. This election is going to ensure a psycho like Donald Trump ends up in the oval office. I will always vote Democrat, but I’m ashamed of my fellow liberals right now who refuse to. Donald Trump winning this election will result in eventual mass hysteria.

So Bernie supporters won’t vote for Hillary if she wins the Primary. Hillary supporters won’t vote for Bernie if he wins the election. Really people? You need to compromise, Hillary and Bernie would BOTH be better than any Republican candidate running. Let’s not act like the Republicans, we’re all adults behave accordingly.

maxresdefault

As much as I support Bernie and believe in him. I know Hillary will do a better job than any Republican. Sure, she has more sponsors than a Nascar Driver, as bad as I know she will be for our country, she will not be  any worse than Donald Trump or God forbid Ted Cruz.

If a Democrat does not win the Presidential Election, say goodbye to many programs that are vital to our country. They will defund planned parenthood, reverse gay marriage, reverse Rowe Vs Wade, cut food stamps, cut medicare, basically cut anything that helps people. I still can’t understand how anyone like that can consider themselves pro-life. They are SO not pro-life, the death penalty is something they love. They are pro-birth with no care or thought of the quality of life after birth. That is not pro-life, that’s the most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen.

I know I can’t change everyone’s mind on voting or not voting for someone. Hopefully, I get through to one person and it would be worth the time. We vote for what we want, many people are afraid of Bernies proposed policies, as many are afraid of Clintons. Bernie.jpg

Bernie scares Clinton supporters with his  “Socialism” talk. Sanders is not trying to make the US a Communist country. He wants to add to current programs in place. When Bernie says he’s a Democratic Socialist, he is basically saying he agrees with social programs which are already in place. Social programs consist of things like The US Mail Service, Police Departments, Fire Departments, roads, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.  He want’s to give everyone free healthcare, he wants everyone to have the opportunity to go to college without massive student loans. How is this a bad thing? He never mentions taxing to pay for this. He’s going to be like Robin Hood, taking from the rich (Wall Street) and giving to the poor (everyone else).

Hillary_Clinton_official_Secretary_of_State_portrait_crop.jpg

Hillary scares Bernie supporters because of her record, her lies, and her flip flops from only 8 years ago. Hillary is a typical politician, she lies, cheats, and I’m sure steals to get what she wants. I do not care for her, but that doesn’t mean I won’t vote for her. As much as I like the idea of telling the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) to go fuck themselves and vote for Trump, I will NEVER do that. I refuse to act like a Republican baby if I don’t get my way. That’s what they want, they want the pissed off Democrats. Why do you think Trump is running? He doesn’t need the power or the money. Hillary may lie, but she will be better for our country than any Republican running for President.

1950

 

If you choose not to vote at all, don’t bitch about politics, because you only did it to yourself. Please wake up Democrats! Vote Democrat no matter what! This election is extremely important. A republican win means we go back in time. They will make this country look like 1950 again. I guarantee it. A woman especially has the most to lose with a Republican win.

Mom, why am I the only white person? – 10 year old.

Donald Trump makes racist statements it seems every interview he does.

racist

A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market. I think sometimes a black may think they don’t have an advantage or this and that…I’ve said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage. -Donald Trump

They’re extremely Bossy.

My 10-year-old loves to boss her sisters around, she treats my youngest like a slave.

Go get my blanket, tablet, and pillow from my room.

– 10 year old

Donny is obviously bossy, he is a boss and always telling people what to do.

They can go fuck themselves. -Donald Trump

They’re both Liars

My daughter lies constantly and she’s extremely bad at it.

I did all my homework for the week. – 10 year old lie.

Since the campaign trail began for Donald Trump it has been found he is truthful only 1% of the time.

-Donald Trump

They act like Babies

My little girl whines, she pouts, she cries, and she freaks out for very little reason at all.

I HATE EVERYONE!

Trumpy likes to act like a child and has done so in public on several occasions.

Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against Bill Maher for making fun of his father.

The similarities are astounding, it brings me to one conclusion. Donald Trump is a child.

 

The Only Liberal In Town

texasliberalovalcarsticker

I decided to do some homework on candidates running at a local level for the upcoming election. Turns out there are no Democrats running at all. Out of 67,414 people only 290 people voted democrat in the 2014 primary. I knew there were very few Democrats here, but I was not expecting that turnout. Hopefully, a Presidental turn out will give some better results than that.

It’s pretty lonely being a liberal in West Texas there are few people I can even relate to. The majority of people are so far to the right it’s a wonder how I haven’t been killed yet. I’m not like a Jehovah’s Witness, I do not meet people and tell them how great it is to be educated or a liberal. I usually hear people bash Obama and I either shut my mouth or walk away. Not much else I can do. I have to live with these people, best not get into a political debate with the ignorant. It makes much more sense to ignore and move on.

BN-FR571_23LEDE_P_20141121173742-640x426

I know many Conservatives, from family to friends. I do not debate politics for the most part with any of these people. There is no point I will not be persuaded and neither will they. It usually ends badly, so it’s best to stay away from those conversations. It is funny how the internet brings out the voice in some as well as me. I may call them “Cuntservatives” on social networking, but it’s probably not a good idea to call my father or brother that. Although, if they say the wrong thing to me, I may.

state_of_Texas_Obama_Romney_election_results_November_2012_THIS
Yep, I’m in the red.

 

My husband is even a Cuntservative, when we were in Chicago he was more liberal so I’m still baffled by this. Texas has brainwashed him apparently. He denies he was ever a liberal, but he was a Union Carpenter, he had to be liberal. I try not to get in a political discussion with him either, we do of course. I just do not bring it up if I can help it. I just hope it doesn’t rub off on my girls. I would prefer my daughters will have the intelligence to choose what is morally right. Maybe then too, I won’t be the only liberal around.

 

Holy FUCKING Politics!

are-you-democratic-or-republican

Everyone has their own opinion and preference on which political party they follow. Politics and religion are the two worst topics to discuss with people. If you disagree with a point of view it becomes a heated debate. In some cases, people take actions to a whole different level and instead of debate, they go into action. Personally, I vote more liberal than anything but am more of a libertarian. Both sides are extreme in their beliefs. There is no candidate out there right now that has a happy medium. People are screaming for change but all the candidates say the same things that were said in the last elections. Nothing changes it keeps getting worse. Arguing politics with someone opposed with your religious beliefs goes nowhere, neither side budges.

The First Amendment to our Constitution states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

What Republicans want and what Democrats what are best explained like this.democrat-republican-party

Democrats:
Give more of the money you earn to the government so they can help people.
The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness starts when you are born.
Stricter gun laws.
Government should help with healthcare.

Republicans:
Keep more of the money you earn and invest it.
The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness starts when you’re a fetus.
Guns for all.
They want Government smaller.

American politics concept illustration of a donkey and elephant facing off. Symbols of Democrat and Republican two US parties. Could be for presidential debate, partisan politics, or just an election.

It’s not so cut and dry as that in recent times, but that’s the idea of their common beliefs. There are far right who want church and state together, follow the bible and constitution both. The left want church and state separate, they govern on the Constitution not by the bible. Not every American is a Christian so the rights idea is not Constitutional.

Similar to this topic the right disagrees with gay marriage and abortion, unfortunately for them, the Constitution and laws of our land have nothing to do with the bible. Religion and politics don’t mix you have your beliefs and your neighbor has different beliefs. There is nothing wrong with that, you should not hate someone who feels different. Every religion has their extremists, but more and more you see them come out in recent times. Terrorists walk among us, they are not limited to other countries as some people may think. If you burn down a planned parenthood because you feel abortion is wrong, you are not only a hypocritical person you are also a terrorist. If you burn down a Muslim church because you are a Christian, you are also a terrorist. This has no place in politics keep your religion out of your conversation because no one wants to hear it.

gaymarriagemap

The hate in this country needs to stop if Betty wants to marry Sally let them, why do you care? If they want to be married and miserable, who are you to say they can’t? The argument of ruining the sanctity of marriage is laughable when divorce is as high as it is. I have yet to hear of a good argument on why marriage can not be for everyone. Guess what homophobes, they won!

abortion

If a woman is pregnant and decides she does not want to have the baby, that is her choice. There should be no debate over someone else’s body. People don’t go into the bar and take the dicks out of your mouth so you don’t need to judge others. The doctors are the real losers here. They are trying to provide a service so these women don’t resort to using metal hangers again. These lunatics threaten and harass these men and women. This has been ruled on by the supreme court, but yet it is still argued to this day Here is a link below on the fact check from the planned parenthood controversial videos. Fact Check Planned Parenthood Video

I don’t care what religion you are, keep it out of your political discussion because they shouldn’t mix.

Asshole of the day is on this very topic. This man Joe seems to think that Planned Parenthood was based on racism. It’s not the case I proved him wrong and BAM he shut up, but his comments were ridiculous which makes him asshole of the day!

Presidential Election 2016 Top Candidates.

These debates are quite funny. I decided to play a drinking game during both Democratic and Republican. I used the words Hillary during the Republican debate, I took a shot of tequila each time I heard her mentioned. I used equality for the Democratic debate, took a shot of tequila each time I heard that word. I got pretty drunk during the debates and finished a bottle during the Republican debate. I have been following Bernie Sanders for years, even prior to President Obama’s election. I have known he is for the people and he never falters on that. I’m not from nor have I ever lived in Vermont. When I think of who I want to be President Bernie and Russ Feingold have always come to mind. If you’re a bigot you’re thinking I am a Jew. Actually I was raised Roman Catholic so that’s far from true. These two gentleman are the best politicians I have had the time to get to know.

dd-caplogo4-l

Several years ago I was taking an American Government. I had to write many papers and I actually wrote one where the main focus was on Senator Feingold and Senator Sanders. These two men are American heroes as far as I’m concerned. They stand up for the middle class when many other politicians are standing there with their hands out waiting for the lobbyists. They remind me of a different version of Kennedy. I just hope their ending is better than his. Going against corporate greed is a dangerous game. If we back Bernie we have a good chance of winning the war.

Let me tell you about the candidates in case you don’t know who they are. I’m only going to mention the candidates that have a chance in this election.

151023112135-hillary-clinton-benghazi-hand-large-169
Hillary Clinton. I just can’t trust this woman.

Hillary Clinton – I will vote for her if she wins the primary, but I can not say I trust her. I am quite sure I am not alone. I always vote democrat, but she is more on the right than I’m comfortable with. The lies throughout her career have outweighed what party she backs. In fact I think both parties are extremely corrupt. Hillary makes some good points during the debates. The problem I have is that one of her main issue is gun control, that will be her downfall. I don’t believe that there is much a President can do about guns. They have been out there, criminals have them while also obtaining more illegally. About the only thing you can do is a psychological test when doing background checks and that would cost a fortune. Not only will it cost a fortune but it will also piss off most of the southern constituents.

While I do not trust Hillary she has a better fact checking record than her Republican adversaries. Hillary Fact Check

The issues are pretty common for democrats. She is for equality which is something the Republicans feel strongly against. She wants to continue on President Obama’s path to our healthcare reform.  Since she was The First Lady she has been behind education reform. Hillary plans to grow our infrastructure and have our country completely powered by solar power. Senator Clinton has great ideas she has been in politics for years and she has a great track record, the fact that she accepts millions for speaking and from big corporations is a problem I just can’t get behind. Hillary on the Issues

gop-cruz-2016.jpeg-1280x960
Ted Cruz. This picture makes me think he’s related to The Bush family.

Ted Cruz – I never thought I’d see the day this man would throw his hat in the race. This clown is terrifying, but it is comforting to know the majority of republicans are backing him. Honestly, he may win the primary, but there is no way he will win the general election. He was born in Canada for one. The only reason he shows any progress as a congressmen is because he has Texas. Oil is going to keep an economy going that is a given. Texas will always do well financially when oil is flowing. He did nothing to help that. Ted Cruz is a die hard tea-partier and current enemy #1 for Democrats. Ted is not even his real name. He was born Rafael Edward Cruz, not sure where “Ted” came from. Born to a Canadian and Cuban, neither were born in the United States and neither was he.

Some of his more recent lies, please view for yourself. All politicians lie, that’s a given but to what extent is always something I look at.    Ted Cruz Fact Check

On the issues he is as right wing as you can get. Ted wants to make sure you have a baby regardless of what you feel no birth control and no abortion. Cruz, wants guns for all and to make it easier for you to obtain one legally. He feels if he allows you to get unemployment or extend the unemployment you currently have it creates more people that wont work. If you have ever received unemployment you would know that it won’t even pay a quarter of your bills. Teddy would like to reverse the Supreme Court decision regarding Gay Marriage. So instead of progressing in any fashion his campaign will bring us back to the dark ages. Talk about scary…When looking into the issues Senator Cruz stands for, I had to go off a Teddy site. His own site is all about giving him money for his campaign. There was nothing regarding the issues there at all. Cruz on the issues

Bernie-Verizon
Bernie Sanders. The only candidate that wants to do something for us.

Bernie Sanders – I just love Bernie, he is who I am voting for and endorsing this election. This man is real, he cares, he wants a better country for us. This man has walked picket lines and listened to the American people. He knows what is wrong with the country and he will be the one to change the major problem. Sure some may say Citizens United being overturned is not the first thing you should undertake. It is absolutely the first thing that should be done. The main problem in this country is financial contributions from corporations to campaigns. It is not only campaigns, the lobbyists are vicious and stop at nothing to pass out money, hookers, drugs, whatever the congress man/congress woman wants to get their point across. The corruption it causes is astronomical, you can not expect these companies to give politicians money and not get what they want. It’s legal bribing and it has ruined our government to a pretty terrifying extent.

Pretty proud that he has no “pants on fires” every other candidate does. Check out his record for truth on politifact. Bernie Sanders fact check

On this issues he is a true progressive. He wants to re-write the trade act to stop these big corporations sending our factories and jobs overseas. If they are going to send our jobs to another country he is going to tax them. He wants to make college tuition completely free, as they do in many other countries. When asked how will we pay for it he concludes that wall street will foot the bill. Bernie feels that since we bailed out the banks to avoid complete collapses they need to bail out our poor education system. To read more about Bernie on the issues please view this site. Bernie on the issues.

Republican presidential candidate Trump gestures and declares "You're fired!" at a rally in Manchester
Donald Trump. The laughing stock of the United States.

Donald Trump – I still find this to be a joke. Has the people of the United States completely lost their minds? This man is a complete and utter asshole. He brings absolutely nothing to the table but his money. He is arrogant, rude, just a vile human being. If that’s what he truly is. Can you imagine Trump having a conversation with a foreign leader? You can’t call people stupid and idiots and expect not to see a nuke coming toward you. He is a joke and I strongly believe he is only running to help Hillary’s campaign.

Trumps statements made have been 1% truth. That is a pretty low number. The outlandish statements can be seen in the following link. Trump Fact Check

On the issues, well Donald and Cruz actually want to build a wall on the US/Mexico border. This wall will cost between 15 and 25 billion dollars. (source. CNBC) They seem to think this will help our immigration problem. Mr Trump would like to renegotiate the Chinese Trade Act, I’m sure calling Xi Jinping, President of China a moron and idiot will fix that trade pretty quickly. The trade is obviously a problem, the question is who is best to deal with situation. Yes, Donald Trump is a businessman he may be great at negotiations. If you have ever watched him in action he is not very good at talking to people. That could get us bombed fairly quickly. Donald Trump also feels strongly about tax reform and many other things. You can read his plans at his website. Donald Trumps PlanYour_Vote_Counts_Badge

The primaries are coming up. No matter what political party you back or do not back go out and vote! If you do not vote, you do not have a say. Yes, elections are corrupt but your vote still counts. To see if your state is in the primary election please check here.

I hope the American people wake up and get on the right path. This is crucial for the United States.
