Martin Luther King, Gandhi and even 'Hanoi Jane' Fonda were arrested for Civil Disobedience.
Did Akin ever 'double-park' in front of an orphanage or tear the 'do not remove' tag off of a mattress.?.?.those are the REAL issues in this election.

Akin is as bright as a potato compared to MLK, Gandi. The guy just believes birth control and IUD's kill babies and a female rape victim's body can magically turn off conception. What's next outlaw wet dreams because the death of a sperm is MURDER? If it is I've killed billions. What other off the wall things does he believe and why in God's name are so many people afraid to get rid of the most uniformed idiotic US congress members the world has ever seen?

This sort of thinking is right out there with the Old Testament idea that a woman who is raped should be put to death if they can't get 10 men to testify the woman was really raped. Are we trying to form a westernized version of the Taliban?

I am utterly ashamed of what the Republican party has become. Using gestapo propaganda tactics and dirty tricks instead of finding candidates worthy of our support and trust. I never thought I'd live to see this.

No it's not. Despite how hard Democrats have tried to make it about that and not Obama's failed record on the economy, or his constant lying, coverups, and everything else, it hasn't worked. The only ones who are acting like it's an issue are Liberals who were going to vote for Obama anyone. It has done nothing but show the desperation of the Liberal left.

Sandra Fluke last week did an appreance for Obama and a whooping 10 people showed up. That is how well this imaginary war on women has worked.

You mean ROMNEY's lies and everything else he's tried to do hasn't worked, not for Romney anyway. You can spin nonsense about how "good" Romney is all you want. I don't buy what Romney's trying so desperately to sell to voters, and I will never trust him.

So I'll VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th. Whine about that all you like. There's no way you can stop ME from voting.
