ALERT: one sourced article that cleanly, clearly, aggressively outs the Romney-Ryan Dark agenda

Comrades,

I highly suggest you read, re-post (on Facebook, Twitter, etc), and forward this article to everyone in your address book concerned about our future.

Point-by-point, policy-by-policy, this piece shows what Romney-Ryan would mean for America, in all its gory details.

Thanks for your time,

Dan Benbow

1. Thank you for posting! Damned good read!

<SNIP>

Rarely has the question “are you better off than you were four years ago?” been so easy to answer, but this is still a close election. Due to a national outbreak of Stockholm syndrome, roughly forty-five percent of Americans – including many of modest means - think it makes sense to give the party of McCarthyism, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and bloodbaths based on imaginary WMDs more power. A more astute and diverse forty-five percent want the United States to continue to heal and evolve.

To the ten percent left, who may decide the election, there’s a simple choice.

If you want a divided and rancorous America that treats women like second-class citizens, bars minorities from the ballot box, handcuffs immigrants who don’t have their papers, shoves gays and lesbians back in the closet, and kicks the elderly and poor to the curb while lavishing windfalls on millionaires and defense contractors, led by a callow, reactionary vice president and a plastic, comically out-of-touch patrician president with no core principles, then Romney-Ryan are your men.

If not, vote for Barack Obama on November 6.

Again, thank you for posting this. And you are right, well writen, well sourced and actively illustrates Rmoney/Lyin's agenda!

Welcome to DU! You are among friends.

4. mistaken impressions

 

Jackpine,

I wasn't writing this article to win over clueless, undecided voters. I wrote it to tell the truth about RR's agenda, and to galvanize support in the Democratic base.

3. Mr Benbow

This is a great article.
You should be proud of writing it.
I agree with almost all of it, 100%.

But, the people who need to be influenced to make their minds up this year are not going to agree with everything you wrote.
Although I think it is a great opinion piece, myself, some of the people that need to be influenced need some kind of a huge wakeup call that hasn't come yet.
They need to be "suddenly awoken" to the fact that Romney-Ryan suck.

We need women to wake up to the fact that Romney-Ryan want to go back to the 50's and make abortion illegal.
Romney-Ryan want to make it harder for women to succeed in the workplace.
They want to make it harder for women to go to college and get an education.
And they want to limit women's choices of how they can live their lives.

It's going to take a Million Woman March to wake them up to the fact that the Republican party wants to return to the early 1950s.
Not just a few of them, either, but the majority of the Republican party.

Obama is working dutifully to get us out of this economic mess that W put us in over 8 painfully bad years. To the turncoat Ann Coulter: You're going to Hell Missy.
