The issues in this election are vital to us as a community of diverse folks with The D. I believe we should discuss it. Dearly beloved Admins: if we can't keep it civil, I will not be the least bit offended if you call us to a Major Halt!
While Governor Romney has been unclear about his position on many things, even though his personal and public records give us some clues, Paul Ryan has not. So here's what I believe he would tell me:
As a progressive, I'm a "Cancer" on the country. As a Diabetic, go to the ER when rationing your test strips necessitates. As a Senior, die sooner and who cares if you can do that in your own home (where, thanks to Medicare, my Mom died peacefully in my arms). As a mother and sister and granddaughter of lesbians and the mother and aunt of young women who are child-bearing right now---let them all bear the babies from a rape or incest. As a citizen with limited income, save your pennies to use soon-to-be defunded mass transit to get a photo ID even though you don't drive and will also have to make numerous phone calls and pay more money to get a copy of your birth certificate which disappeared when your purse was stolen. As an artist---oh well---I wouldn't even bother…..
Yes, that all states my bias. But I would like to know how any person with a pre-existing condition and really, how any woman can support these candidates.
I'm not any kind of attack dog. I'll try to respond thoughtfully!.....Blessings on all of us who struggle with The D and our self-management in the face of societal ignorance!!!
