Romney and GOP destroying democracy
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- I am not one to easily or quickly lose my temper, but when I hear politicians deliberately lying about another political figure who is a good man and works hard despite the Republican Congress's unwillingness to cooperate with him in doing what is right for the unemployed American people who have lost more in so many cases than those of the Great Depression, then I am ready to speak out against them as enemies of the citizens of democracy.
This joker known as Mitt Romney is without a doubt so maladjusted he is dangerous to himself and our country. Any one supporting him is showing their shallow thinking without reasoning and without the ability to explain the purpose for that support.
No honest person, especially those who call themselves Christian, who is strong for Mitt can be trusted in fairness, honesty, or American interest, because they know the difference between right and wrong. Mitt is definitely wrong about most everything he is spewing.
Recently Romney was before a group of coal miners in Ohio when he made his own anger statement by saying, "Mr. President, you can take your divisiveness, your anger and your hate back to Chicago." Mr. Obama had said nothing in any way to anyone or about anyone in a tone of anger that would cause Mitt to say such a divisive, hateful, angry comment. He was told many months ago by Karl Rove, the most effective trick to keep an opponent off guard was to take your weakness on a particular matter and transfer it to your opponent. Mitt did not have enough sense to know if he did that he would be revealing what his weakness might be. Anger and hate are two components of Romney's character; not Obama's. Karl Rove is also the author of purging the voter rolls which the Republican governors have written into law preventing honest and rightful citizens to perform their Constitutional rights. They are slowly but surely destroying our precious democracy.
Equal treatment denied by state
I am appalled, shocked and dismayed at the treatment that people whom are either lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered receive in this state. By law, we are legally second-class citizens. We do not have the same equal rights as heterosexual people. We do not have the option to marry the one we love, no equal protections in terms of housing or employment protections. We do not ask for special treatment, just equal treatment.
And by treating us as such, the state has knowingly violated the U.S. Constitution's 14th amendment. In particular, the Equal Protection Clause. This clause prohibits expressly discrimination against minorities. And in West Virginia, we are a minority and are treated as such. We get fired for being gay, kicked from our homes because we are lesbian, or denied employment because of being transgendered.
And not every same-sex couple will go out and get married if it is legal. All they want is the same option as a heterosexual couple has. We were born equal in the eyes of God, why can't we all be treated the same way?
