Ass, George W. Bush, and Gif: conservativewoman 6 delete edit www()youtube(.)com/watch? v-hRJa2OaiwWw Anonymous amorescoregge replied to your post: www()youtube()com/watch?v hRJa2Oai.. block p You should make this rebloggable <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34983592942/let-me-fill-you-in-on-something-i-am-a">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Let me fill you in on something.</p> <p>I am a conservative, not a Republican. Now, between the two parties, I end up voting Republicans because they at least are closer to my beliefs than any Democrat would ever be. And they at least pretend to love their country. But unless they are representatives from the Tea Party crowd, I have just as much issues with Republicans as I do with Democrats. </p> <p>There are Republicans who hold conservative values, who fight for change, who do what’s right. (Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin…For the record, many “established” Republicans hate the Tea Party because they upset their cozy power.) We’re seeing more conservatives coming out in the last four years because of the extremist policies by this president. But there are plenty of people in the Republican party who only want to hold power, who are moderate, almost liberal in their beliefs. I am not a fan of John Boehner for instance.</p> <p>So the words of some established Republicans don’t mean too much to me to be honest. In the case of this video, many of these interviews occurred during the 2012 Republican Primaries. All of the other Republicans were trying to get the nomination so of course they’re going to point out flaws they feel Mitt Romney has. As soon as he won the nomination, they all got behind him.</p> <p><strong>This reminds me Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic Primaries. Hillary and her husband were BRUTAL on Obama, yet as soon as she lost the nomination, she started kissing his ass. </strong>Now he throws her under the bus for the atrocity that was Benghazi, and she’s letting him. Sounds about right.</p> <p>As for his “flip flopping,” I’ll say this. In the case of abortion, Mitt Romney was Pro-Choice until he was the governor of Massachusetts and was presented with an abortion law. Once he was faced with the actual power to take human life, he looked to his deep Mormon faith and realized that he couldn’t be Pro-Choice with a clear conscience. He had a genuine change of heart, and he ended up signing the least offensive bill since he had a Democratic State Congress who would have vetoed him anyway.</p> <p>The other stuff doesn’t defy the fact that he is a business man and knows how to run a business and a state. Obama was a “community organizer” who got elected into Congress on a fluke when his campaign committee brought up the opposing candidate’s marital affairs and other made up scandals. When he was in the Senate, the only thing he did was make sure to vote PRO-PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION over and over. The other times? He merely voted “present.” He does not know how to run a country, and it’s clear through the fact that he tripled our deficit and outspent every single president from George Washington to George W. Bush.</p> <p>Social issues don’t concern me this election. The economy and our national security does. Mitt Romney isn’t going to go around and try and kiss our enemies’ asses and try to get them to “like us.” He has a brain and knows they’re never going to like us, so they might as well fear and respect us.</p> <p>I’m not paying $4 on average for gas anymore. I’m not going to settle for spending my years with a Bachelor’s and Masters degree working in retail. I’m not going to live in fear that our President will help the Muslim Brotherhood make its way into our nation to try and instigate Sharia Law while they mutilate and terrorize their own women in their country. I am not living in a liberal’s Socialist/Communist country.</p> <p>If you want to, you can take your pick of other nations around the world who are. I’m not letting this country turn to shit like them.</p> <p>And even if I took to heart what other politicians have to say about this man, you cannot ignore his good heart. You can’t ignore the fact that he donated his entire inheritance to charity. You can’t deny that he is a self-made business man whose track record is 98% successful. You can’t deny that he denied salary during his time as the governor of Massachusetts. You can’t deny that he shut down his entire company to go in search of one of his employee’s missing daughters. He’s a good man, and his generosity outshines Obama’s selfishness and incompetence…not to mention his blatant disregard for this country’s tradition and values.</p> <p>So your little YouTube video isn’t going to change my mind about who I’m voting for on Tuesday. And if it changes anyone else’s mind, well, then they never really thought for themselves or did their own research in the first place.</p> <p>For love of my country.</p> </blockquote> <p><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mczg8qDKbo1rw09tq.gif"/></p> <p>THANK YOU. I&rsquo;m so sick of people saying &ldquo;oh you&rsquo;re just a Republican, derp. You must love all da Republicans!&rdquo; I&rsquo;m a registered independent, but the Democratic party is about as far away from my views as you can get. I support the Tea Party, but seeing as that&rsquo;s not an actual party, I vote closest to my values (mostly Republicans and some Libertarians). </p>

America, Animals, and Children: conservativewoman 25 delete edit I honestly dont mean this as hate, i mean this is the most respectful way possible. I really don't understand you, you are a woman, and yet you support the man who would take away abortion rights, funding for planned parenthood etc? why would you let someone just take away your rights? economically Romney has some okay policy ideas, but how can you not think about all of the people he would be harming or just doesn't care about? gays immigrants women. and again, i mean to be most respectful. forgettingmymind <p><a href="http://mezzoalex.tumblr.com/post/34885160172/conservativewoman-i-was-asked-to-make-this" class="tumblr_blog">mezzoalex</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34834537232/i-was-asked-to-make-this-rebloggable-well-you">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*I was asked to make this rebloggable…</p> <p>Well, you don’t know me as a person very well because I am Pro-Life, and I believe that Planned Parenthood should be privately funded, not federal funded like every other business in this nation. So I agree with Mitt Romney on his Pro-Life stance, as a woman’s right is whether or not she wishes to engage in sex, not to terminate the human life she created exercising her right. I also agree with him that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive tax dollars, and instead rely on donations and competition in the free market.</p> <p>However, Mitt Romney cannot ban abortion by himself. He does have the power to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, but there is an entire system called “checks and balances” in the government. The President is not a dictator, no matter how much President Obama wishes it were. He doesn’t have almighty power; that’s why we have the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as the Supreme Court. If Mitt Romney led a campaign to end abortion, I’d be all for it. But he’d have a whole lot of work in front of him to achieve that, and it’s glaringly clear that the economy and getting people back to work is Romney and Ryan’s #1 priority along with foreign policy to keep America safe.</p> <p>Furthermore, America’s economy is on the brink of collapse. A broken economy affects every single, solitary American, not just women or immigrants or gays. I know there are women out there who want abortion. I know there are gays out there who want marriage. I know there are immigrants out there who want to become citizens. But there are the majority in this country that include men, women, straights, gays, legal immigrants, blacks, whites, Hispanics, people of every walk of life who want a better life. If they cannot get jobs, if they cannot provide for themselves, the other social issues matter very little.</p> <p>There was a gay man who once said that he would love to be able to get married. (For the record, I am pro-gay civil unions.) But he would rather have a job to go to to provide a home and a hearth for his partner and their children rather than living on the street with nothing but a ring on his finger.</p> <p>On the subject of Planned Parenthood, they will be fine in the private market, just like Sesame Street. If people want it around, they will keep it around. That’s how businesses work. But taxpayers should not be responsible for funding it, especially as doing so violates religious freedoms from Catholics, Christians, Jews, etc. who don’t support abortion. (Not to mention, many religions disapprove of contraception considering sex should be kept within marriage where the two people should be prepared for children anyway.) Mitt Romney does not want to ban Planned Parenthood; he just doesn’t think the government should be spending taxpayer money on it when we’re $16 trillion dollars in debt and counting.</p> <p>Honestly, I am very confused when people say that Mitt Romney wants to “take away my rights” as a woman. What right does a woman <em>not </em>have in this country? For that matter, other than civil unions, what rights do gays <em>not </em>have in this country?</p> <p>Both women and gays are free to vote, to speak freely, to drive, to work, to get an education, to hold hands with the ones we love, to practice the religion of our choice, to come and go as we please, to show our faces in public, to spend our money on whatever legal thing we wish, to be free. In other parts of the world like the Middle East, women are denied those kinds of rights, and if they violate any of those rules, they will be punished from physical mutilation to a bullet in the brain. In those parts of the world, gays are beheaded for being who they are.</p> <p><em>Those</em> are real rights. Those are real rights being taken away, being persecuted, being wronged. Paying for your own birth control, donating to a company you believe in yourself, and all of those social issues are merely encouraging this nation to be one of fiscal responsibility and accountability. Asking women to pay for themselves is not oppression; cutting off a woman’s nose for leaving the house without a male relative is oppression.</p> <p>I am voting for Mitt Romney because I am worried about my future and this country’s future; not as merely a woman, but as an American. It’s funny because Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being sexist when it’s been the President’s campaign who has pandered to the female vote using expressions like “vote like your lady parts depend on it,” and putting out ads that compare voting like losing your virginity. All of the focus for women from the Obama campaign has all been sexual even though women’s unemployment is 11%, and there are more women living in poverty than there ever has been in our nation’s history. Not only that, President Obama’s own female staff makes 18% less than his male staff.</p> <p>Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being homophobic when he says that while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is a state issue, and should the people of the state vote in favor, so be it. He’s also fought his career against discrimination based on race and sexuality, while also showing favor to civil unions. Meanwhile, President Obama has flip flopped on this issue numerous times. While he made his pro-gay marriage stance public this May right before the campaign started for this election, just last week during his MTV interview, he said he would not be focusing on gay marriage in his second term, and said that it was a state issue. This is the exact same position Mitt Romney has, and yet, Governor Romney is the one being called a homophobe.</p> <p>Furthermore, President Obama has run this country’s economy into the ground, supports the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women and gays worse than animals, denied the ambassador of Libya and his embassy relief during a terrorist attack they knew about well in advance, and, among other things, signed the NDAA, which allows the President to arrest and detain an American citizen without cause or due process. This is not the kind of America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and it certainly isn’t the kind of America in which I want to live. And those are the pressing issues that affect every single American, no matter what their demographic.</p> <p>I understand that people have their priorities. Your priorities are clearly not my priorities. But I do resent when people (not necessarily you specifically) insist that I “should” vote for Obama simply because I am a woman. Women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. So I see this constant “You are a woman, therefore, you should vote for Obama” insistence as a threat to my right as an American. I have the right to vote however I choose. Same as any gay or black or Hispanic individual. Because we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color — we are Americans who want this country to thrive economically again, to be respected around the world again, to protect our own.</p> <p>I understand that your message wasn’t meant to hate or to be disrespectful. I welcome questions. I welcome discussion. I appreciate when people legitimately want to learn my side. <strong>That is what being open-minded means.</strong>It’s about learning both sides and how they feel and think, and what matters to them. Just because I don’t agree with the other side, just because I don’t bend my own values or morals or beliefs or views to surrender to the other side doesn’t mean I am closed-minded. Because I try and educate myself. I try to listen and understand. I don’t stand for hate or threats or any of the horrible crap I’ve received through Anonymous on this site. But I welcome messages like yours; ones that simply just want to know where I stand. </p> <p>I hope I’ve given you a little insight to why I’m voting for Governor Romney next Tuesday, and I hope you understand a little bit better. :) God bless.</p> </blockquote> <p>“we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color —”</p> <p><img src="file:///C:/Users/Owner/Pictures/GIFS/clap2.gif"/></p> <p><img height="300" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcwdkqankJ1qm8px6o1_400.gif" width="400"/></p></blockquote>
