I'm so tired of the Republican meme, "if you work hard, you can achieve anything"


Tell that to the single mom who has to work two minimum-wage part-time jobs to feed herself and her children, and sometimes she still goes to bed hungry at night.

Tell that to the Iraq vet who comes home and can't get a job because of his extreme PTSD, and has to live on the streets.

Tell that to the recent college grad who has to take a low-paying job she's over-qualified for because she can't find a job in her chosen field. She has to live with her parents because she can't afford a place of her own due to enormous student loan debts.

All these people want is a good life, and to get ahead in life for once, and Republicans tell them, "well you just aren't working hard enough".

Republicans' motto should be, "I've got mine, so FUCK YOU!".

I for one, am tired of busting my butt every day, for my meager paycheck, only to be told "I'm not working hard enough."

My lunch break is almost over, so I'm going to end my rant here. Just wanted to get that off my chest.

the GOP are putting all these women on stage

trying to prove they really do care about women, and that women should vote for them..

However, women won't forget Akin's "legitimate rape" comment, or Paul Ryan supporting an anti-abortion bill that included the term "forcible" rape.

Women know the next President will likely appoint 2-3 Supreme Court Justices, and that Rmoney would not hesitate to nominate justices who would overturn Roe vs. Wade and force women back into the back alley, where more women will die from illegal, botched, abortions.

The GOP can bring out as many women as they want tonight, but it won't change the fact that Romney will throw women under the bus if he is elected. However, women aren't as stupid as the GOP think we are, and we aren't going to give Romney the chance to throw us under the bus... mark my words, it will be the GOP war on women that will end up costing Romney the Presidency, and possibly costing the GOP the House, too.
