"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group." - FDR
How the 'war on women' is changing - CNNPolitics.com
We do not need this future for our daughters, vote. The dynamic reflects the painstaking efforts among Republicans to avoid the mistakes of 2012. This time around, there aren't any candidates talking about "legitimate rape" or "binders full of women." And the GOP put up strong female candidates in states like Iowa and Michigan, making it harder for Democrats to attack them as opposed to the interests of women.
100 years before Rosa Parks there was Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825-1911). She was an author, poet and abolitionist. Born free in Baltimore, she had a prolific career, publishing her first book of poetry at age 20 and her first novel (Iola Leroy) at age 67. In 1850, she became the first woman to teach sewing at the Union Seminary. In 1851, she helped blacks along the Underground Railroad en route to Canada, running from the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850.
The GOP is going after the poor on PURPOSE. They are not trying to fix any of our nation's problems. They are only trying to make themselves and their friends richer. They are succeeding because they embrace lying to their supporters, as just another tactic to convince them to vote against their own best interests.
