This and Amendment 64 in Colorado.
I was listening to a local radio show about 15 minutes ago coming home from work. The topic was “who are you voting for and why?”. One caller ended and the next came on. It was a woman with a southern accent who immediately made clear she was a Romney supporter. Fine, but what she said next literally disturbed me that someone could believe a thought so absurd.
One of the radio hosts has confirmed he will be writing in Ron Paul.
The woman said (read with a southern accent for accuracy): “You might as well vote for Romney because all write-ins for Ron Paul count as votes for Romney because he’s a Republican. But all votes for independent parties like the Libertarian parties are just votes for Obama. Literally votes for Obama because all independent party votes count as Democratic votes. That’s why Clinton won because all of Ross Perot’s votes counted for him. I know this because I work for the RNC.”
I’m proud to say that the radio host said “That’s not true. That’s a blatant lie”.
If there is anyone else that believes this, please use some common sense. That’s not how an election works.
I saw someone on the internet post this in defense of Obamacare.
It’s called the Affordable Healthcare Act for a reason!
Yes. In fact it is called that for a reason. George Orwell would have called that reason “doublespeak”.
Doublespeak: language used to deceive usually through concealment or misrepresentation of truth
Do you think the bill would have passed if it were named the “Government Mandated Healthcare Act”? It would have certainly had some trouble. By name the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) seems like an honorable attempt to do exactly what it says, stop online piracy. But we all took a nonpartisan deeper look and saw it to be much more. Don’t be fooled. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Don’t judge a bill by it’s name.
