Mitt Romney- Not The Problem?

29 Sep

As we all know, Obama’s support has been soaring in the polls, while Mittens is left in the dust, begging for some support. But why? Wouldn’t a man who founded one of the countries most successful financial firms, and fluent in the language of economics, be popular among the Americans? There is no denying, when the election season first started, Mitt had a great reputation, and it seemed very likely his inauguration would be around the corner. Twitter had become lively, chattering about the new man on the field, Mittens. People were running.. sprinting to get a piece of this guy, to finally have a republican president again; although he still does have a decent “fan base”, His VP, Ryan dissolved many of his early supporters. Mitt was your “ordinary” conservative candidate, nothing to crazy coming from his side… and then BOOM their policies on rape, birth control, abortions etc blew up.

There has been some speculation saying maybe it’s not Romney, but the new Republican party. Many members of the Republican party have been quick to blame their new figure-head, yet if Romney would preach some sort of economic policy, the party would revolt against him, even our one and only Mittens knows there needs to be some tax raises and spending cuts. oh, but for the Republican party to be able to wrap their heads around tax increases? Yeah, right. As the months have been passing by, I’ve almost started to feel bad for Romney. He’s becoming like Bush, in a sense that, if something isn’t written for him, he sounds utterly ridiculous. Romney is definitely a smart man, he proved this during his run as governor. It’s almost like he’s stuck in between a rock and a hard place, trying not to outrage his supporters and party, and to manage the hate from the other side of the spectrum.

Romney has been tied into a knot, as he tries to campaign without straying from his party strictures. There is a new political correctness with the Republican party, which includes not uttering the word taxes, nor speculate about immigration policies.

Waging War: Conservatives and Liberals

2 Sep

This is coming to you in a Liberal perspective.

This “war” has been getting utterly ridiculous. What is going on right now you cannot call politics.
Conservatives are slinging insults to Liberals, and vice versa. What ever happened to listening and debating about one another’s opinions?
I can no longer post about being liberal, my ideas, and supporting Obama without some conservative getting riled up and telling me I’m wrong.
I try not to sling insults, but when someone is telling you to kill yourself when all you did was post your opinion, it is hard to not get mad.

If you don’t agree with what I say, and approach in a respectful manner, I will respect you. One of my favorite things about being involved with politics is talking to people who are complete opposite of me, and hearing their opinions on issues, current events, bills etc, It gives a bigger perspective and a better understanding. When someone messages me telling me to kill myself, or that I’m stupid and uneducated, I do not rebuttal with “huurr duur no u so stupyd y u no kill yoself?” because that’s wrong. You don’t believe the same thing as me? Okay, that’s cool, tell me what you believe and we can share opinions!

I wonder if it makes people feel good to tell a young girl to kill herself? And do you know what’s worse? When you get used to people saying these things. When it becomes so regular that you almost expect it to happen.
“Hellooooo this is America/Canada/where ever, we have freedom of speech!”
Yes, we have the right to speak our minds, but we all have the responsibility to respect one another. We all share the same air, eat the same kind of food, buy the same cars, do the same activities, Yet we are letting political differences put a wall between our fellow human beings?
I have some friends who are conservatives, and you know what we do? We will talk about it respectively or not talk about it at all.
