Romney policies are immoral

Republicans, your vote counts. Your party platform states “no abortions,” period. Even, pay attention now, if your daughter, your wife, your mother or your sister is brutishly raped and left for dead. Your vote for the Republican Party insures your loved one will have no other option than to endure the birthing process to bring her attacker’s abomination into the world against her will. This position is horrible and despicable and your vote for Republicans supports this immoral outrage against women.

Democrats support a woman’s choice, equal pay for women and thanks to “Obamacare,” 40 million women now have free preventative “girl stuff” health care. Use this benefit from “Obamacare” now because Romney says he will destroy “Obamacare” the first day.

Why? President Obama plugged the Medicare “donut hole” for seniors, provided insurance for your children over 18 and stopped predatory insurance companies from dropping you from coverage. These are good things.

Further, Idaho is a very poor state under Republican rule. Catholic bishops call the Romney/Ryan budget “immoral” because it hammers the poor. That’s you, Idaho. Hammered to give tax breaks to the wealthiest.

Author Ayn Rand, an atheist, is the guiding light of Paul Ryan and the Republican Party and advocates that altruism (helping others) is a sign of weakness and only helps undesirables to live longer. This is contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Though Republicans say they embrace Christianity, their policies of torture, forcing a raped woman to have the baby and the Romney/Ryan budget are distinctly anti-Christ. Republicans manipulate Christianity to serve not the God of Abraham, but the god of profit through false teachers and false churches. You know false teachers and churches by their actions, deeds and support of policies opposing the example of Jesus.

Vote Obama/Democrats instead.
