Mitt Romney Is Not the Answer

A woman’s vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for her own dehumanization and subjugation. Mitt Romney wants to take away our well-fought right to control your own body. It’s not about being pro-choice or anti-choice. It’s about being pro-America. We are Americans; tax-paying Americans that work, go to college, and stimulate our economy through commerce.
Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney fights to treat women, these same Americans with jobs, educations, hopes and dreams, like not only less than men, but less than human. Women are being stripped of their right to choose more and more every day. Again: THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE. This is NOT about abortion. This is NOT about contraception. This is about that fact that people died to fight for our rights as Americans.
Nowhere in the Constitution of the United States does it state “freedom of religion as long as you are Christian.” Nowhere does it say “freedom of speech as long as you are saying what we want to hear.” It was never written “the right to life as long as it’s the life we want you to have, liberty as long as you use it as we see fit, and the pursuit of happiness through choices we want you to have.”
The problem with Republicans is that they are complacent with hypocrisy. They pretend to defend the Constitution’s promise of religious freedom until an American voice a favor toward a religion other than any facet of Christianity. They pretend to support liberty until your liberties pertain to things that they dislike. It’s disgusting and Republicans are getting away with it more and more every day.
In our nation, there is a man running for president that wants to take from women the right to determine the fate of her internal organs. A woman can not be trusted with her own devices. The ideals of the conservative Republican party are destroying the societal standing of women more and more with each passing day. It’s not acceptable. It’s not right. It’s abhorrent and morally reprehensible.
Stop it. Vote Democrat, Libertarian, or any party that refuses to snatch the rights of women from their hands. Stand up. Say something. Men and women both need to change this ugly, damaging stance. Mitt Romney is not the answer. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Let your voice be heard.
