It is easy to label one party extremist but it is best to put it into perspective historically.  There is no political party that calls itself "right-wing extremist" or "left-wing extremist."  Those labels come from individuals or other parties.  It is name calling.  In the long run, it serves no purpose but to create angst and anger.  I believe any political viewpoint can go too far right or too far left.  There are many examples of voilence on both sides of the political spectrum.  Politics kills at an extreme level.  Consider the DEATHS of the following because of political viewpoints:

  • Congo Free State (1886-1908): 8,000,000
  • First World War (1914-18): 15,000,000
  • Russian Civil War (1917-22): 9,000,000
  • Soviet Union, Stalin's regime (1924-53): 20,000,000
  • Second World War (1939-45): 66,000,000
  • People's Republic of China, Mao Zedong's regime (1949-1975): 40,000,000
  • 1st and 2nd Chinese Civil War, Nationalist Era (1928-37; 1945-49): 7,500,000
    Korean War (1950-53): 3,000,000  (and another 3,000,000 died from North Korean political policies)
  • Rwanda and Burundi (1959-95): 1,350,000
  • Second Indochina War (1960-75): 4 200,000

There are far more sub-political conflicts I could have listed that have resulted in the deaths of tens of millions.  My point is this.  Politics serves more to be devisive.  The lack of communication and name calling causes more harm than good.

Quoting NRichtoo:

 

The truth has been exposed. The radical Republican platform will take women's reproductive rights back to the the dark ages of back alley coat hanger abortions, even in the case of rape caused pregnancy.
The GOP Vice president has even condemed hormonal birth control. They already made it clear when they held up the government by not voting for a budget because they insisted on adding a clause removing funding for planned parenthood (birth control and medical help for poor women willl PREVENT ABORTION). This is a radical group who really only cares about intruding into our personal lives, our gay friend's lives with their religious agenda, not the budget.
Also remember: they vote against regulations to stop global warming. without clean air and water, nothing else will matter.
I will vote for the party that wants to protect the environment and agrees to stay out of our personal lives as it is probably right that no matter which party is in, balancing the budget will not happen quickly. The two wars (Iraq for oil) both started under Republican Presidents, have been way too expensive at a billion a day and will take years to recover from no matter who is in office after how for in debt W got us. Vote for the social and environmental issues that DO and will affect our lives.
How any woman can vote Republican with this platform is beyond me. If you make more than 1  million a year, you are the only ones who will be effected by removal of the current tax breaks and if you are luck enough to make that much, be thankful  you are in that group.  I am wealthy woman and no matter who is President, I will pay my fair share and not complain. Lori

 



One word.  Or maybe it's two.

 

HORSES**T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Not to mention that REAL science has proven over and over again--remember I'm talking about REAL science, that there is no man-made global warming.  It simply doesn't exist.

 

I do wish you the best though, in your fantasy world.  And I hope you find love here.  Just stop drinking the KOOL-AID and maybe you'll be okay.

This type of scare tactic is why things never get sorted out.  Radicals on both side screwing around with the country trying to separate us instead of unite us.

 

This poster knows full well that laws will not change in this area.  She's just trying to get a vote for a drowning man that jumped in over his head. 

 

 

Just ask yourself, are you better off than 4 years ago?  Is the country in better shape?  Like the change?

FYI...I'm not big on Romney but he's better than the alternative.  I don't like Obama's change,

How could any U.S. citizen who is only slightly aware of the damage Obama has done re-elect him??? I cannot stand Obama, he should be impeached ,NOT re-elected!! Obviously you are not aware enough, no offense.

I am not a fan of Romney but he is the lesser of two evils at this point.

What happens in Tampa will make a difference. Delegates are unbound and can vote for Ron Paul or will they succomb to pressure and vote for Romney.

Between the voter fraud and the people pulling the strings, I really have to wonder if the president is elected or selected.
