Elections Have Consequences

Elections Have Consequences

I cannot stress enough how important it is for everyone to exercise their right to vote. Many good people died so that everybody could vote. Many bad people are still trying to take away our right to vote…so if you don’t use it you will definitely lose it.

If the last election proves anything, it is that elections have consequences. Rachel Maddow did an excellent job of summarizing the horror show that could have ensued if the election had gone the other way. Please reflect on the following and make sure you are fired up and ready to go for 2014!!!

15 Sucky Things PREVENTED By Obama Winning His 2nd Term

(1) “We are not going to have a Supreme Court that will overturn Roe vs. Wade. There will be no more Antonin Scalias and Samuel Alitos added to this court.”

(2) “We’re not going to repeal health reform. Nobody’s going to kill Medicare and make old people in this generation — or any other generation — fight it out on the open market to try to get themselves health insurance. We’re not going to do that.”

(3) “We’re not going to give the 20% tax cut to millionaires and billionaires, and expect programs like food stamps and kids’ health insurance to cover that tax cut.”

(4) “We’re not going to make you clear it with your boss if you want to get birth control with the insurance plan that you’re on.”

(5) “We are not going to redefine rape.”

(6) “We are not going to amend the constitution to stop gay people from getting married.”

(7) “We’re not going to double down on Guantanamo.”

(8) “We’re not eliminating the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, or Housing at the Federal level.”

(9) “We are not going to spend two trillion dollars on the military, that the military does not want.”

(10) “We are not scaling back on student loans because the country’s NEW plan is that you should borrow money from your parents.”

(11) “We are not vetoing the Dream Act, we are not ‘self-deporting.”

(12) “We are not letting Detroit go bankrupt.”

(13) “We are not starting a trade war with China on Inauguration Day in January.”

(14) “We are not going to have — as a president — a man who once led a mob of friends to run down a scared gay kid to hold him down and forcibly cut his hair off with a pair of scissors while that kid cried and screamed for help. (And there was NO apology, not EVER.)”

(15) “We are not going to have a Secretary of State John Bolton. We are not going to bring Dick Cheney Back. We are not going to have a foreign policy shop stocked with architects of the Iraqi war, we are not going to do it …”

“We had the choice to do all of this if we wanted to, as a country, and we said no, loudly.”
