In spite both the prevention and termination of unwanted pregnancies,

Not to mention the loss of wanted pregnancies through miscarriage and termination through necessary, life sustaining medical procedures, isn't it a fact that the current birth rate is still going up and up?

In America, since our rate of consumption is so much higher than every other country on the planet, wouldn't any unwanted births not ended in this country have a more detrimental effect on the globe than were they to happen anywhere else?

Why is the Right determined to impose unwanted births on women and families before they're prepared to cope with new children, while doing everything that they can to prevent the personal and societal capacity to raise these kids in the long run?

Aren't the overstrained educational system, the high umemplyoment problems, the overwhelmed medical system, the prison complex, the homelessness issues and the general failure of the social safety net progams clue enough to these people that, we have enough problems coping with everyone whose here today plus the addition of wanted pregnancies, than to add onto those existing problems by imposing unwanted births on a society that's ill-prepared for them?

If I didn't know any better, I would swear that the Right with its irrational obsession on fetuses, even to the extent that it excuses rape and incest to drive up the birth rate above existing levels, is out to destroy this planet and humanity as a whole through overpopulation and the depletion of natural resources.

The Right is clearly practicing both a form of lop-sided moral relativism, as well as a scheme to gain and maintain hegemonic power over the rest of the planet.

Through their fervent advocacy of an unmanaged birth rate as well as their efforts to man and unleash both a bloated, unequaled military and an unrestrained banking system on the planet, this is done in order to take control of global resources and humanity at will.

Their advocacy to create a constituency of wealthy elites is also required to fund a take over of our political system against a backlash of democracy, as well as the way that they use societal misery, fears and prejudices against the electorate in order to impel the majority to vote against its best interests. Simply make them believe that the things that the Right are up to are the moral things to do.

Against raising the general standard of living, managing a sustainable birth rate, pursuing peaceful resolution of conflicts, practicing safe and sustainable energy production and resource usage, the Right has distorted these things as immoral and have convinced a sizable amount of the American public that the complete opposite is moral.

It's no accident that advocates for rape like Todd Akin are using moral justifications in their defenses, this is merely their exercise of a system of control. Control of society as a whole through the control of women's reproductive systems is at the core of their strategy. Any exercise of self-control by women and families represents a fundamental threat to the Right's access to power and overall control.

In conclusion, it's quite clear to me that the Right is willing to risk the very existence of human life on this planet in order to control it.

And why not?

Their moral relativism dictates that their behavior guarantees a safe and desirable reward in the Afterlife. Nothing that happens on this planet is important to them in the long run and is thusly available to be sacrificed to obtain that much vaunted reward.

In other words, we're dealing with unreasonable fanatics who are hellbent on throwing our very existence as a species away.

If that doesn't impel you to do everything that you can to marginalize these people to the point of harmlessness, I don't know what will.

I would never presume that I'm presidential material…

Frankly, I know for a fact that I'm not fit for any elected office at all, that even goes for dog catcher.

However, I've never had the benefit of being a rich white guy who's the son of a rich white guy, and I didn't grow up being a creature of abject privilege, someone who only thinks of himself, without the willingness to work for the benefit of others.

I do, on the other hand, recognize the problem with someone like that obtaining elective office.

Romney was born in Detroit's Harper Hospital, as I was born in Herman Kiefer Hospital, just a few short miles away. But, unlike most other people born in inner city hospitals like we were, his formative years were coddled in the monied confines of Bloomfield Hills. Now, if you know anything about this area, then you would know that Bloomfield Hills contains one of the highest concentrations of rich, privileged white assholes this side of Hell… Michigan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell,_Michigan.

He was given the best that this country had to offer, the best schools and opportunities, all because of who he was born to and where he was raised.

Somehow, he got it inside of his empty head that all of this shit makes him fit to be president. He was lied to and was too fucking stupid to see that lie for himself. He never will see it. I suspect that he'll go to his grave thinking that he deserved to be president and was unfairly kept from office. If someone had ever told me that I could be president, I'd tell them to go fuck themselves.

Now, I'm going to tell you an observation I've had about Mitt that I think should be obvious to anyone reading this. Mitt Romney's chief character flaw; that as long as it's something that could be used to inflate his already gargantuan ego, he would swallow ANY bullshit that's fed to him. This very aspect of his personality is the single most important factor as to why he should never become president. I think that in the backs of most other voter's minds, they recognize that in him as well. It makes him completely inadequate for the job.

Which begs to question as to how he's found himself as his party's presumptive nominee in the first place. A Romney nomination makes absolutely no sense at all. Apparently, Mitt's only qualifications for elective office are based on two things; his unabashed willingness to lie and pander for votes and his ability to hoard a crap load of money from his halcyon days as a vulture capitalist. Money made on the rotting bones of lost American businesses and jobs.

As a politician, he is by far, the MOST incompetent campaigner I've EVER seen in my fifty short years on this planet. He doesn't take advice, he fails to research his audiences, he knows nothing about the lives of ordinary people, he takes stands that most normal people find reprehensible, his moral compass is haywire, he lies when it would to his advantage to tell the truth and blurts out factual items that would cause him political harm, he's utterly failed to prepare his financial records for the scrutiny that would be expected by any other politician running for ANY office, he's smug, arrogant, obtuse, intellectually lazy, supremely privileged and about as useful as tits on a bicycle.

In other words, he's the ultimate in Bloomfield Hills rich, white asshole technology. All of this points to the indisputable fact that the Republican Party, as we know it today, is completely hosed as an organization for allowing this bean bag to matriculate to the position of nominee.

I have no idea how or why this guy thinks that he's fit to be President of the United States. However, I don't blame him as much as I blame all of the people walking around in this country who knows ANYTHING about this guy and they also feel that he's fit to be President. I blame the broken behemoth known as the Republican Party and the media hacks who know better, yet who steadfastly refuse to admit to the truth.

Are they fucking nuts? Couldn't they buy a fucking clue after his laughable foreign country fiasco?

Say what you will about Richard "Tricky" Nixon, at least that underhanded, paranoid motherfucker was QUALIFIED for the job.

I wouldn't hire Mitt to wash dishes.

Of course Mitt picked a lame, self-obssessed, brown-noser dipshit, like Paul Ryan as his running mate. He's a son of privilege too, rich from his inheritance and ability to inside trade from his position in the Gubmint to keep himself rolling in greenbacks. These two know-nothing assholes are two peas in a gilded pod. Why didn't I figure that out to begin with? Who knows, I guess I made the mistake of thinking that Mittens wouldn't pick some guy who would have the instant cumulative effect of tossing the election, even BEFORE the national convention.

Silly me, what do I know? I guess that I forgot that Mitt is utterly in-com-pe-tent!

In spite of the efforts of state house Republicans to steal this election, I am confident that the President will win by a landslide in November.

Everyone hasn't heard of Bloomfield Hills, but most people know an incompetent, privileged asshole when they see one.

The people who recognized a person like that will always vote for the other guy instead.

Thank any non-specific mythical deity.
