Todd Akin Vs The Real Threats
by Sonja Harris on August 22, 2012 at 9:12 AM
So while we are worried about what came out of Missouri US Senate GOP nominee Todd Akins’ mouth, which was absolutely a misspoken word, there are real threats to our freedom: Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Bear Arms, and Freedom to work to achieve the American Dream. Oh yes, the freedom of an unborn infant to be born alive. The Republican Party Platform Committee presented a draft today calling for a ‘Human Life Amendment’.
It is not Akin who wants to kill the unborn, it is his opponent Senator Clare McCaskill, the Democrat, who does. Let’s hear what McCaskill had to say about abortion and did she misspeak?
I wonder at times why Republicans are so easily distracted, why every single word that comes out of a candidate’s mouth has to be perfect. Wouldn’t that be dandy…but in reality our GOP candidates are just human. I am not even going to bother to compare Akin to the perverted Liberals who are in office because that would be elevating the Liberal. IF I were from Missouri, I would vote for Akin, but then again I am not. So the dilemma is not mine.
This is what a real threat to America looks like. Meet Mike Golash, former President of Amalgamated Transit Union, #689 the third largest union in North America. Listen to what he had to say just a few days ago about getting rid of Capitalism in America and building a movement to bring in Communism. There must be plenty of these vermin around but the media ignores their existence.
The media is having a field day trying desperately to tie Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan with the false assumption that the GOP has a ‘War on Women’. Don’t fall for this Socialist ploy. We must stay focused; we must not stray. We must not reelect the Chief Abortionist and perverted Barack Hussein Obama. We must VOTE ROMNEY/RYAN2012.

Todd Akin, GOP Senate candidate: ‘Legitimate rape’ rarely causes pregnancy
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in a clip posted to YouTube by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Akin added: “But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
AP sources: GOP platform draft at odds with Romney
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Republicans on Tuesday decided they will call for a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion without specific exceptions for rape or incest, a position at odds with GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said Tuesday on MSNBC. ‘‘But as far as our platform is concerned, I mean, this is the platform of the Republican Party. It is not the platform of Mitt Romney.’’
The party’s platform says members of the GOP ‘‘assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution.’’
