    Asking a woman to vote for a Republican is like asking a mouse to vote for a cat.

    At least the democrats are equal opportunity thieves. They'll steal as much from women as men for "the greater good".

    And the "greater good" seems to mean them staying in power so they can steal even more, for "the greater good".

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


    "Giant asteroid to wipe out all life on Earth tomorrow. Women and children to be hardest hit."

    Not if they are treated equally. But as long as the Republicans ensure they are not treated equally, then yes.

    Of course the GOP is become the party of the Koch brothers, and they are certainly not out for your or my welfare.

    Like the democrats are?

    Democrats are to busy being selfish corrupt authoritarians to worry about anyone but themselves and how they'll keep the blinders on their faithful followers long enough to get re elected.

    Actions speak much louder than campaign rhetoric Crabby and neither party has a good record of doing what they say they'll do.

    This is simply a case of tantrum throwing. All indications historically, and currently show an almost complete wipeout of any democrat majority come November. Right or wrong, it's going to happen.

    Remember, a good percentage of people who were lied to about their health insurance are women. I think the dens got some problems of their own they should worry about.

    And I certainly don't think C.T.Boy's advice is prudent. He cannot convince me he has the best interest of the GOP, or even the country, at heart when he says these things. He merely wants to keep democrats in power.

    Historically the party in power has a rough time in mid-term elections. The GOP probably will make gains, even take control of the Senate. This may be a blessing or a curse in 2016 ... more likely, IMHO, a curse.

    And the GOP seems to want to take away any health insurance they already have. No gain there for women. And your premise is incorrect:

    Frankly, I would like to see a party in power that is interested in helping all the people. The Democrats seem to be more in that direction than the GOP. The Koch brothers, who are funding the GOP, certainly do not have the average person's welfare at heart. The are billionaires who are addicted to money and who want what is good for them, not for what is good for you and me.

    If the GOP changes and really shows me that they are more interested in helping everyone, than the democrats, that they have everyone's welfare at heart and not just the rich and the rich old men then I would vote for the GOP candidate.

    As I have said, during my adult years I was a registered Republican longer than a Democrat. But when the GOP came out with the Southern Strategy and developed into the party of the special interest of the rich at the expense of everyone else I changed.

    The GOP seems to especially not like women during our current era, much less people of color or legal aliens.


    p.s. I am ignoring knee jerk, nonsense replies where the person is simply parroting lines and not replying with a thoughtful answer.

    I'd like to see you back this up.





    Not interested.


    When you have a thought, I'll have a thoughtful answer.

    Comprehensive Republican health reform plans introduced in Congress

    Let’s start with 5 comprehensive health reform proposals that have actually been introduced in Congress—some well before President Obama even was nominated for president, and all months before the House (11/7/09) or Senate (12/24/09) voted on what eventually became Obamacare.

    Ten Steps to Transform Health Care in America Act (S. 1783) introduced by Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY) July 12, 2007.
    Every American Insured Health Act introduced by Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Bob Corker (R-TN) with co-sponsors Tom Coburn (R-OK), Mel Martinez (formerly R-FL) and Elizabeth Dole (formerly R-NC) on July 26, 2007.
    Senators Bob Bennett (R-UT) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced the Healthy Americans Act on January 18, 2007 and re-introduced the same bill on February 5, 2009.
    Patients’ Choice Act of 2009 introduced by Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Richard Burr (R-NC) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Devin Nunes (R-CA) on May 20, 2009. [See Update #1 for why this bill was of particular significance]
    H.R. 2300, Empowering Patients First Act introduced July 30, 2009 by Rep. Tom Price (R-GA).

    What’s sad is that the Bush plan actually was superior to Obamacare when it comes to providing universal coverage. Remember, Obamacare actually does not provide universal coverage. The latest figures from CBO says that when it is fully implemented in 2016, Obamacare will cut the number of uninsured by only 45%, covering 89% of the non-elderly. Even if illegal immigrants are excluded, this percentage rises to only 92%. In contrast, the Bush plan (without a mandate!) would have cut the number of uninsured by 65%. But that’s ancient history. Consider one of the newest market-oriented health reform plans put on the table by Jim Capretta and Douglas Holtz-Eakin. Compared to Obamacare, this plan would cost roughly the same amount yet cover 22% more (8 million!) uninsured. If there’s a superior alternative to the slow-motion train wreck now being implemented, why wouldn’t the President and Democrats in Congress want to seriously consider it as a replacement?

    Sorry I must have forgot reality is off topic in the political forums. :rolleyes:

    While you're right here and we're both off topic anyways I wanted to ask you why you never "note" it when one of your buddies like the Rev, Salty, and TND are "off topic"?

    Okay so it's the "see something say something" program you're following then right?

    Do you report us all to the mods when we're misbehaving?

    I've probably used the "report post" button 5 times or less since I joined BB.

    Back to the OP now...

    What are you asking? Why didn't I call "off topic"? Why didn't I press the "report post" button?

    I didn't post in that thread, so why should I police it? Besides I try to avoid anything to do with Ron Paul.
