The Affordable Care Act and Governor Romney's Plan: A Comparison →

Check out this interactive map that lets you compare candidates healthcare plan results.


The separation of church and state does not seem to apply to the Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, as a Bishop was caught on video espousing that a vote for Democrats may condemn a person to hell by placing their soul in jeopardy.

Romney Suggests Obama Has Plans To Remove God From Currency →

Mitt Romney put God at center stage of his stump speech during a campaign stop in Virginia Beach Saturday. Alongside televangelist Pat Robertson, Romney made it clear, in case you were wondering, that he has no intention of taking the word “God” out of his party’s platform or off the country’s currency, reports Politico. It was a not-so-thinly-veiled attack against Obama and the Democrats, who took heat from conservatives for not mentioning God in their platform. They later reinserted it.

After leading a reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance in the middle of his remarks, Romney began talking about God. “That pledge says ‘under God.’ I will not take God out of our platform. I will not take God off our coins. And I will not take God out of my heart,” Romney said to roaring applause from the audience. Romney also pledged to “rebuild America’s military might” to an audience that was heavy on military families, reports CNN.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney believes that “some” Americans have taken the separation of church and state too far, “well beyond its original meaning.”
In an interview released Tuesday with the Washington National Cathedral’s magazine, Cathedral Age, Romney said those who “seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgment of God” aren’t acting in line with the Founders’ intent.
The separation of church and state is enshrined in the First Amendment of the Constitution, but Congress and the courts have debated the practical extent of that separation since its founding.
Romney said the Founders didn’t intend for “the elimination of religion from the public square. We are a nation ‘Under God, ‘and in God, we do indeed trust.”

In a masterful bit of deception here, Romney glosses over the fact that the founders never said anything along the lines of “one nation under god”

Right-wing arguments I’ve heard so far:
1) There was no such thing as bullying in 1965
2) No one should be held responsible for their childhood (which in this case is “late-teens”), but trying children as adults are perfectly acceptable.
3) Obama was a bully as a child!
4) There is no bullying only boys being boys.

Openly gay Romney aide quits after backlash →

Hey, what a surprise, Republican bigots bullied a competent political adviser out of a job because he’s a homosexual. Imagine my surprise.

Percentage of candidates income donated to charity
Really, Rick? Less than 2%?! Watch Santorum’s answer when he’s confronted about his history of tiny donations. He claims it’s because one of his daughters is special needs and, because of that, he doesn’t have a lot of extra money to throw around… I call bullshit!
He made over $3.6 million dollars in the past four years as a ‘corporate consultant’ lobbyist.

I do not accept The Mormon Institution Church or the Catholic Gestapo Church as charity, no matter which of these three are giving their money to those asshats churches.
