Undecided Voters and the Jedi Mind Trick

*Contains adult language. Do not read farther if you are offended by occasional swearing.*

Mitt Romney has not given details on ANY of his financial plans. He does not support equal pay for women. He is against reproductive choice for women. He is RUDE to the sitting President of his OWN country and leaders of other nations and has openly stated he would look to war as a "first choice" in Iran. His business expertise consists of OUTSOURCING American jobs to places like China. He pays 14% in taxes and has openly stated he thinks that is just FINE, and he continually LIES while proclaiming to be a religious man. How incredibly, moronically, dropped-on-your-head-as-a-baby STUPID do you have to be to even CONSIDER voting for this man for president, especially if you are FEMALE and have any desire to go to college, have a job or may have sex (or heaven forbid, be the victim of rape) in your lifetime?

You are not pleased with how LONG it's taken President Obama to fix an economy it took G.W. Bush EIGHT YEARS to utterly destroy? And exactly WHAT detailed plan did Mitt Romney offer? That's right, NOTHING! He danced around details all night long like he was auditioning for Dancing With the Stars (something about which I have the sick feeling you are ALL experts). Oh, and he had some really wonderful ANECDOTES. Those are cute little personal stories he uses when he doesn't want to give DETAILS that would give away the fact that his entire plan for us is to make a slave class of the middle class and funnel even MORE of OUR money to himself and his ultra rich buddies--you know--Bain Capital-style--which is, ABSURDLY, something you find ATTRACTIVE about him! Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints wept!

Regarding President Obama's plans, which are WORKING and WORKING WELL under the circumstances, I'm sure you are AWARE that the stated goal of the leader of the GOP in the House of Representatives (I fondly call them "the Tealaban") in Congress, upon being sworn in, was to OPENLY state his NUMBER ONE GOAL was to make President Obama a ONE TERM PRESIDENT. Also almost every single republican in congress has signed a pledge to Grover Norquist, the top dog Lobbyist in Washington, stating they will not raise taxes on the rich under ANY circumstances? In addition the filibuster has been used a record number of times to block EVERY SINGLE JOBS BILL brought forward by President Obama, along with ANYTHING and EVERYTHING else that could possibly shed a positive light on our president. ARE YOU AWARE that this has NEVER, EVER been done before in the HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...most especially in a time of WAR? 

As a veteran I cannot help but to see that as a personal insult...a real slap in the face, and given Paul Ryan's congress has already refused to even CONSIDER health care for my service-related poisoning at Fort McClellan, Alabama, because (big surprise here) I am FEMALE, like most of the many, many thousands of people deathly ill from diseases related to toxins we were exposed to at Fort McClellan, it was an extra slap in the face I did not need! The civilians who were exposed to the same toxins got millions of dollars, but our obstructionist congress couldn't be bothered with the grave health issues of mostly female veterans...and their innocent offspring. Pro-life, what? 

The attitude of Romney and Ryan toward women is very nearly psychotic in its disregard and disrespect!

Yet in the face of all this obstruction, you "low information voters" wonder why President Obama "hasn't done more by now [3.5 years] to fix the economy."


He had just a few months of a filibuster-proof congress before Senator Kennedy became ill, and then of course, later Gabby Giffords was shot. So this whole MYTH about how much President Obama SHOULD have been able to do is nothing but that...a MYTH, a FANTASY. (Just ONE of Romney's many lies--that our President had TWO YEARS of full control of the government. More like 3 months. They don't mention that very often on Fox because it's one of those boring old facts.)

What's a true miracle is that Obama was able to do what he HAS done, which is somehow turn around an economy that was spiraling downward to total destruction--destruction you cannot even begin to imagine, because you have gone about your baseball, hot dogs and Kardashians lives as if politics is no big deal and as if the two parties are really just the same. To return to the mixed metaphor (not that you've noticed) we are talking helicopter in full auto-rotation bad here and going down FAST, but somehow we were fortunate enough to have a pilot (president) with the calm proficiency to stick with it, literally, and pull that thing back up and under control about 10 feet before the cartwheels started. Hint: helicopters don't do pretty cartwheels. If you know anything about piloting helicopters, as I am sure you must, since you know NOTHING about politics, you realize how RARE it is to pull one out of full auto-rotation...and he did it with a bunch of raving lunatics pulling on his arms and legs and covering his eyes!

But you STILL aren't satisfied (please note the childish sing-song voice) because despite all that he hasn't gotten you to the desired destination FAST enough.

HE JUST SAVED YOUR DAMNED LIVES you lack-wit dipsticks!

Get with the program. Get yourselves educated. Stop watching Fox News and listening to that drug-addled lunatic Rush Limbaugh and actually READ some REAL news, and check some congressional VOTING RECORDS. Look back at the W. Bush administration, then make it more stupid and more mean and more greedy and more misogynistic (woman-hate/fearing) and overtly RACIST! THAT would be a Romney administration.  

It wouldn't kill you to actually watch a couple programs on MSNBC, because while they are left-leaning they do not create their own universe. They use real-world facts, as does the Huffington Post. I suggest Lawrence O'Donnell if you don't want a drooling partisan. Also Martin Bashir. But get some REAL news, not the "newsertainment" crap that's all full of hype and hyperbole (that's overly exaggerated emotional speech).

We're not voting for the guy who looks most presidential, or like the one who would play the role of president on TV. We are voting for the leader of the most powerful (unless we elect Romney) nation in the world, and it's an important decision. It's worth putting an hour of research into. And for God's sake if you're a freaking racist, then just ADMIT IT, and stop playing "undecided voter" and wasting everyone's time.

If you're Mormon, either focus on the fact that he's half white by birth and get over it, or put on your magic underwear and go back to Temple and discuss it with your Bishop, or whatever you racist kind of Mormons do (I know not all of you are) when you know you've done something wrong and have helped to cause the deaths of possibly millions of innocent people by voting for a conscienceless empty suit for President who just can't WAIT to take away health care and start another war so his defense contractor buds can start the profiteering.

By the way, for you low level workers out there, don't believe your boss if he/she tells you Obama Care is going to force them to fire people. That is an overt (open and intentional) republican tactic designed to trick people into either voting for Romney or being too afraid to vote for President Obama. Like the Jedi mind trick, that lie works only on the weak minded, so consider yourself warned.

Personally, I don't see how ANY of you can watch someone lie over and over and over again and still consider voting for him. Do you just play drinking games during the debate or watch it and take everything Romney says on faith then not watch or read the fact-checkers the next day or what?

Women, do you REALLY want to be forced to have the baby of your rapist upon threat of PRISON, if you are raped or the victim of incest, no matter how old you are, no matter what medications you are on, no matter how severely obscenely deformed the fetus is because of them?

Fathers, if your ten year old daughter is raped, do you want HER to be forced to have a baby, knowing that she will suffer from bone weakness and other severe physical health issues, including increased chance of infertility, for the rest of her life? The psychological damage goes without saying. That is where we are going if the "Personhood" amendment the Tealaban Congress wants goes through and Romney signs it, as he has repeatedly PROMISED he will do on that very busy first day in office. Women, do you want to lose free Mammograms and cancer screenings? Men, how about your prostate and testicular cancer screenings? Do you want to lose the ability to keep your children on YOUR insurance until age TWENTY SIX? That is a MONUMENTAL issue, as is increased access and tax deductions for advanced education, mortgages and charitable donations, etc.!

And make no mistake about it, if Romney is elected, Social Security and Medicare ARE history within the next 20 years. That has been the GOP goal for decades and they are very close now with so much apathy and at least a couple Supreme appointments coming up. Yes, today's seniors will be fine...but after that it's time to head to northern Alaska with ma and pa and try and find some nice big ice burgs that have not yet melted, because your parents will have nowhere else to go when they are too demented to safely stay at YOUR HOUSE. As for Medicaid? Pah! Romney and Ryan may claim to be pro-life, but they haven't met a war they don't love, and while they are RABID about saving the fetus, they won't lift a FINGER to save a child, because it costs money they feel is far better spent on TAX BREAKS FOR THE RICH!

So yeah, I'm just a BIT stumped as to how you could still be "undecided" ...especially after tonight's debate, during which Romney just had his ASS handed to him by the POTUS (that means President of the United States).

I know the GOP tends to benefit from low voter turn-out, but holy hell's bells, people, if you STILL haven't figured this thing out, just stay the fuck home!
