Tony Wright Has it Right

I strongly agree with Tony Wright: In my opinion, voting for Willard Romney for his “fiscal conservatism” makes one complicit with the extremist GOP beliefs that it’s morally acceptable to deny rights to LGBT Americans. A vote for Romney means that you agree that woman should be kept in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. It means that patriarchy is fine by you, and that woman have no business deciding what’s right for their bodies. A vote for Willard says that you have no respect for minorities, the poor, or the elderly.

Voting for Romney tells me that you want theocracy, that freedom of religion is only available to Christians. A vote for Romney screams to me that one nation under Koch is your core value. A vote for Romney says to me that you like trickle down economics, which only serves to flood Caymen Island bank accounts. The trickle down to the rest of us is actually corporate fat cats pissing on our heads.

Teachers and police and firefighters are parasites, sucking the life out of our country’s bottom line. A vote for the GOP means that bullying is perfectly acceptable, as long as it’s you that’s not getting bullied.

Personally, when I vote, morality means more to me than money. When I vote tomorrow, I know that I will be able to look myself in the mirror, and be happy with the choices I made at the polls- will you be able to say the same thing?

Which is it? Money or Morality? You can’t have both with Mitt Romney: chances are that unless you are a rich white man, who’s straight and Christian, the GOP isn’t helping you with either.

    To be fair, Mitt’s stances on everything change on a minute by minute basis, so who knows what his opinion on any issue will be 15 minutes from now. Maybe tomorrow, he’ll show up to a press conference in drag with his new boyfriend and announce he’s opposed to straight marriage and will turn Obamacare into a national single-payer, government run, plan.

    In my opinion, the only thing you can truly count on with a -gag- President Romney is that the rich will get big tax cuts. ANYTHING else is a total crap-shoot.

    Disturbingly, millions of Americans are willing to take that crap-shoot, if it means there’s even a CHANCE they might pay a few bucks less in taxes a year.
