I was seriously worried that I may actually need to leave the country in order to protect my rights as a woman.  What a huge relief.  I slept like a baby!

Share this with the republicans you know who are hurting today.  http://mobile.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/frame_game/2012/11/obama_the_moderate_republican_what_the_2012_election_should_teach_the_gop.html

I really do hope that the GOP regains it’s sanity.  I would actually like to be able to support one of their candidates someday.  I thought they would be more moderate after McCain lost after making a hard right turn (I actually kind of liked him circa 2000), but then they went even harder right with the tea party.  I can’t help but wonder if its something like how some women are hyper fertile right before menopause, and that this stong run to the radical fringes is a sign that the party is almost done.

@EastMeetsBarn:  +1

It *kills* me to think how many people think Obama is some radical leftist hell-bent on reshaping our nation into some kind of left wing utopia.  He’s actually quite moderate, and has always been. It’s just that the right has gone so far to the extreme that anyone who is properly in the middle, looks way more to the left than they really are.

Also people need to embrace the fact that some of the social issues are going to change. You can either embrace change, or dig your heels in and fight it, but either way, things are going to change.  Women’s rights are here to stay and will only become stronger; Roe v Wade will not and should not be overturned, tax dollars will go to Planned Parenthood, and salaries will and must be equalized. Gay people will and absolutely should be allowed to marry in every sense of the word as their heterosexual counterparts can. We’ve finally evolved as a society to the point that these things will happen.  It’s the only right thing to do. The only question is, how fast will it happen.  And I have yet to see one coherent argument against gay marriage equality that doesn’t come down to “the bible told me.” 

It’s not that the country is on a leftward spiral that makes these things so important; it’s that, as a society, we’ve finally figured out that there’s still a lot of injustice in this country, and we’ve decided to fix that.

@EastMeetsBarn:  I will be interested to see who the Republican Party produces in the next few years. We *have* to separate ourselves from the crazies ( Palin, Limbaugh, anyone who wants to talk about rape) and really get some intelligent and less polarizing candidates. And for crying out loud, Donald Trump just needs to go. I will just be watching and researching to see who becomes the new ” star” of the party, as I’m sure Democrats are going to be figuring out as well.  The 2012 Election isn’t technically even over yet, and we are already starting to talk about 2016! My DH may be looking into and has been seriously considering getting into local politics in the next couple of years… so if that does happen, I would be interested to see how/if that experience changes our own personal beliefs or stances on issues.

@photogestelle:   “I honestly can’t see a single reason why anybody would vote for Romney (unless they’re a heterosexual, white, rich, Christian man- the only kind of person he seems to care about)”

I said exactly this to my FH yesterday.

I have a question for you American Bees!

 

I’ve read a few tweets/posts etc… where Republicans decry democracy in the US, essentially complaining it’s “NO FAIR” that Romney had the popular vote, but Obama won the Electoral vote, thereby becoming president.

Here is my question:  Didn’t Gore win the popular vote in 2000 but Bush won the electoral vote?  They seemed pretty happy about the process then.  Is there some kind of mass amnesia occuring 12 years later?

If one more person blames Obama for gas prices, I’m going to pull my hair out!  Oh, but wait.  I forgot that Obama is the root of all evil, right?  AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

@MissNoodles:  Romney didn’t have the popular vote, but you are correct.  People only  are happy when it goes their way.
