So...yes to forced rape babies?
I don't need anyone to tell me there is or isn't a "war on women". Cliche aside, there is an attack on women's reproductive rights.
It's in the platform. What do you think of it? You can say "it's the economy", but that's an evasive distraction from the very real limits some are attempting to place upon women, regarding their right to carry, or not to carry a baby to term, in their bodies.
It's a bigger issue to me than the deficit, although Republican presidents prior to Obama have been high on deficit spending. The president came into office with a deficit, and yes added to it, but prevented the great recession from becoming Mad Max.
GWB ballooned the Federal Govt. Bush and Gore talking about what they'd do with the PROJECTED surplus was a load of bullshit. I loathed them both for it.
So what's your take on the rape babies? Is your deluded view of Republicans as fiscal conservatives in practice enough to outweigh your government getting up in the vaginas of your loved ones? Is that where you want them? In your bedroom?

Small Government is a misnomer. Individualism Authority would be better. They don't want a "small government", they want to distribute governmental power to the corporations while limiting the power of the person, the individual. In essence, Corporatism. Small government wants Corporatism while disguising it as Democracy. They're doing this for YOU, can't you see that?
Democracy is dead yet we are being told that the animated corpse is alive and well, kind of like Stephen King's Pet Sematary with all that evil, but more like Weekend at Bernie's, with a few reaping the benefits of living the high life Democracy promised. It died 30 years ago and it's been waving its lifeless hand ever since and people keep voting because they are told that is how Democracy works, thinking its waving at them, but it is those using Bernie's beach house for their own purposes that is controlling the hand.
A government that would allow corporate companies more freedoms than they already have while restricting the freedoms of the individuals working for them is not a government for the people, by the people. We have been scammed.
Corporatism is Medieval politics.

I forgot to say that both sides do this. It is up to the people to actually enforce Democracy. This will only happen through revolution. Likely in our lifetime.

You vote for the cowpat, you get the flies. Dance with the Devil, you wait for the music to stop. Sit on an antheap, get bites on your balls. Pick one. You vote them in, you get all of that craziness, not just the little bit you signed up for. It counts.

I'm voting for Battle Fields
Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.
