Reproductive rights ARE an economic issue
Don’t let anyone tell you different.

In the 2008 presidential election, 80% of adults from families earning at least $100,000 a year voted, while only 52% of adults from families earning $20,000 or less cast a vote, according to data from the Census Bureau.
Voting is important, that’s why rich people vote in such high numbers.
Voting is important, that’s why the Republicans are trying to make sure as few of us vote as possible.
There are more of us. If we vote, we win.
If voting didn’t matter, the GOP wouldn’t be making such an effort to keep people from voting.
Get off your ass and vote.
It would be great if we could get a federal holiday for national elections so that people could get out and vote without worrying about getting back to the job or standing in lines after work. But, you know, that would make too much sense.
Between Latina women, 74% support Obama vs. Romney’s 21%
Between Latino men, 61% support Obama vs. Romney’s 32%
I’m not psychic or anything, but I’m predicting those numbers will go even lower once this somewhat racist “joke” is seen/heard by more people.In case you missed it:My dad, as you probably, know was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico … and, uh, had he been born of, uh, Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this,” Romney said. “But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico…. I mean I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.Controversial private fund-raiser video shows candid Romney – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs (via epubagent)Romney never stood a chance with the Latino vote, but honestly, it’s like he’s begging Latinos not to vote for him.

The Department of State encourages all U.S. citizens overseas to vote, and offers non-partisan assistance online and through our embassies and consulates around the world.
U.S. citizens can now request their blank ballots electronically. Depending on your state or county, you can get your ballot by email, fax, or internet download. To start, U.S. citizens should go to www.FVAP.gov to fill out a new Federal Post Card Applications (FPCA). Even U.S. citizens who are already registered to vote or who have voted in previous elections should complete new FPCAs in 2012 to ensure they receive their ballot via the fastest delivery method possible.
The registration process for overseas voters has changed in many states this election cycle. Deadlines and eligibility rules for voting in state and local elections vary by state and are rapidly approaching, with some deadlines less than a month away. Additional information about absentee voting for U.S. citizens abroad can be found online at www.FVAP.gov or travel.state.gov.
The State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs will be available live during a twitter Q&A with @TravelGov on August 28 at 9 a.m. EDT to answer questions about how to vote while abroad. Representatives from the Office of Overseas Citizens Services and the Federal Voting Assistance Program will be on hand to answer questions about registering to vote and submitting a ballot from overseas.
U.S. Citizens are encouraged to submit questions in advance to @TravelGov, using the hashtag #AskState. Questions may also be tweeted live during the Q&A.
This effort supports the Department’s 21st Century Statecraft efforts, complementing traditional foreign policy by harnessing the digital networks and technologies of an interconnected world.
This isn’t an effort to swing the election toward my candidate. I mean, it’s good for him whether you vote or don’t vote. No, this is about the actual act of voting. Most of you guys are younger voters and that’s a demographic that the GOP has actively been going after with this voter suppression campaign they’ve been waging through the states. So you shouldn’t let them win on that.
Even if you don’t believe in the voter suppression effort, you should vote because it’s your freaking right and there are other things on the ballot that you can make your voice heard on. The presidential election isn’t the only things going on in November and maybe you can make a difference more locally.
I may not agree with you when it comes to Ron Paul, but maybe there’s something we can agree on locally. But come on. Vote.
I’ll tell you what my grandmother told me: If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain.
I mean seriously. Don’t get me wrong. I love my family. But I am more than a mother. I am a woman. I’m a lawyer. I’m a warrior. I exist outside of my kids and my husband.
Answer me one question Ann: If I’m the backbone of this nation and I hold this nation together, how come I can’t seem to keep you assholes out of my personal business, namely, all things connected to my uterus/ pussy? Answer me that.
Then tell me why you stood up there and declared your husband wouldn’t fail when he failed spectacularly as governor of Massachusetts. So spectacularly, that a state that had elected nothing but republicans before him, FLIPPED after 4 years of him because the state economy was so bad. Oh. I forgot. We’re not allowed to talk about that. How about how he failed to be honest about his claim of home of record on his tax returns while running for that office. Oh can’t talk about that either. What about how he’s failed to be forthcoming about his time at Bain Capital, and yet proclaims that his business experience is what qualifies him for the job. Oop. Can’t talk about that either. Hmmm.
This number can also get PA residents a ride to the polls as needed.
Tea party activists say they’ll abstain from voting on Election Day – “I have heard from various folks in the tea party that they would rather stay home,” said Ana Puig, the state director of FreedomWorks, a conservative activist training group. “I’m hearing that from people all over the country and on Facebook.” The Romney rejection stems from the deeply held belief by many conservatives that the former Massachusetts governor is really a moderate wolf in conservative sheep’s clothing. […] “The same things were said about [2008 GOP nominee] John McCain,” Burkholder said. “When McCain won the nomination, we were for Romney because he was more conservative than McCain. You can see how far the conservative movement has come now that Romney isn’t conservative enough.” – PennLive.com
This isn’t surprising, but it doesn’t change the importance of showing up to the polls and voting. VOTE!! Tell your friends. Tell your family. VOTE.
