MO isn't a tipping point state therefore its loss is statistically minuscule relative to losing OH or VA. Losing MO does however make it virtually impossible for Romney to get to 272 without major upsets in states like PA (republicans have pulled all their money and resource from the state some time ago), NV, WI, MI, and NH.


Simply put, baring a mega Obama disaster you are on the hook for 127 quids. PAY ME!

I won't say all, but it's a rather large amount of them that are doing it. You'll find it interesting on two particular people who sponsored a bill last year that would have redefined rape.



Missouri Rep. Todd Akin says he 'misspoke' on rape and pregnancy - latimes.com

Quote:
“Akin previously was the co-sponsor of a bill to redefine rape,” McCaskill said. “And it was recently reported that Akin opposed a state law against spousal rape because it might be used as a tool against husbands in a ‘messy divorce.’ ”

The “redefinition” of rape was contained in a federal bill co-sponsored by Akin in 2011 that would have redefined the conditions under which federal funds may be used to pay for abortion.

Currently, federal money may be used in cases of incest, rape or if the mother’s life is in danger. The “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act” was co-sponsored by more than 200 Republicans, including Mitt Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul D. Ryan. It would have changed the word “rape” to “forcible rape,” which abortion rights supporters feared would rule out paying for abortions in cases of statutory rape or when a victim is drugged or verbally coerced.

The bill passed with overwhelming Republican support in the House but failed in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Legislative proposal puts abortion rights supporters on alert

Quote:
In a sign of the potential confusion that could arise, one senior GOP aide said the wording was meant to prevent coverage for minors who engage in consensual sex that results in pregnancy. In some states, consensual sex involving minors is considered statutory rape.

Re: 2012 Presidential Election (free for all edition)



It still blows my mind how a religious nutbag like this ended up on a science committee. My guess is so he can squash any science related funding that would somehow prove his precious religion wrong.

Rape trauma as barrier to pregnancy has no scientific basis - Yahoo! News





Amazing how one stupid set of sentences can ruin your entire career. Good. I'm glad and we really don't need guys like this governing our nation in any capacity.

Akin bows out of CNN appearance at the last minute - CNN.com

Now that his ass is being fried, I love how he's retracting all these words. He isn't sorry. He firmly believes the crap he said on Hannity's show as evident by the legislation he's tried to pass.

Quote:
And Ryan, his vice presidential pick, has opposed exceptions for rape and voted alongside Akin in the House, though Ryan now says he defers to Romney's position on the matter.

Not sure why Ryan is condemning Alkin as he is good buddies with him on the abortion stance and feels that women that have been raped shouldn't be allowed abortions either.

This is more info on my point about Medicare cutting "benefits". This study shows increased mortality rates due to Medicare cuts that happened in the mid 90s. The cuts then were $ 40B over 4 yrs. I believe. Pretty dry read tho.

Another good article (albeit by a guy on the right) on the differences in Medicare plans.

Yet I believe in the death penalty. Huge 2nd amendment proponent, and feel we should seriously do something with immigration. Huge civil liberties proponent.

Apparently you just ignore all the other issues I"m conservative on. Far left is about as off-base as most of your comments. I lean left on issues, and right on other issues. Just visit the gun control thread to see that.

Re: 2012 Presidential Election (free for all edition)

I'm convinced NC is an anarchist at heart. As such, he gets a little from column A (opinions of "liberals" within the liberal democratic political system), a little from column B (opinions of "conservatives" within the liberal democratic political system) and a whole lot from Bakunin.

IMHO - the terms "left" and "right" are becoming more and more archaic with the polarization of opinions and the erosion of the 18th century liberal democratic system established by the founders.

Even as recently as forty years ago, both left and right bought into the ideal of classic liberal democracy and the then existing political system as a means of reaching a solution to differences. Libertarianism, anarchism, communism and similar philosophies were considered fringe and incompatible with such a system.

Now, as our govt. gets larger, more intrusive and less responsive, frustration over the amount of corporate money and all things Washington is leading people to re-explore and buy into these once fringe political philosophies that de-emphasize the societal nature of civilization and play upon utopian desires.

All of this is just my musings on Tuesday morning. I have proof and/or links for none of it. Sorry for the digression.

No no no you don't understand. Haven't you figured out that in politics there are only two teams. Team elephant and team donkey. You can't have varied nuanced and philosophically based opinions that cross the political spectrum. Its always us versus them.

The two party system simply no longer suits us. Maybe it never did.

Pretty much explains how I feel about our system, and its why I will be voting for her come November. Don't tell the Elephant crew running around here though, would shatter their thoughts of me being the liberal Obama supporter.



I think you should all listen to this woman. She has more knowledge and direction for this country than any politician out there.

Just because I have called you liberal does not mean your a dem. The green party is liberal or progressive how ever you want to call it. I give you credit for voting for who you most support. She says the war put us in dept but if you take all her programs we would be in even more dept.
