Maddow Calls Out Romney for Trying to Run Away from GOP Platform on Rape





By Heather
This Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, their platform committee, led by Gov. Bob McDonnell, approved anti-abortion language that has no exceptions for rape,
right in the middle of the dust up with Missouri Senate candidate Todd
Akin and his statement about "legitimate rape" that had Republicans demanding that he drop out of that race.

As Rachel Maddow pointed out that same evening, Gov. McDonnell was so
desperate to be the vice presidential pick this year that for a while
he was trying to run away from his own positions
on the topic, but now that he was passed over, here he was, putting
that same extreme language into their official platform at the
convention instead. And what is Mitt Romney trying to do? Run from it as
fast as he can of course.


MADDOW: You know, if this is your policy position, you
either have to explain and defend that policy position, or it can't be
your policy position. You can't both have that as your position and
never have to be held accountable for it. It is the position of your
vice presidential nominee, and it is his voting record, and it is his
policy record. And it is about to be the official party platform that
you are running on. And your people were there shaping that platform
when it wound up in there.


But that's not you? What's you then?


Whatever's convenient Rachel. Etch-a-Sketch doesn't ever expect to be
held accountable for anything he's said or done. And in the mean time, Akin is refusing to drop out of the race,
so we can look forward to Romney at least continuing to be pushed about
whether he agrees with Akin or not and if he doesn't, why did he pick
Paul Ryan for a running mate?

    Thanks to Rachel, and people like her who expose Republicans lies and deception.I can't help quoting this special spiritual message over and over again because it's serve a true purpose; "my people perish because lack of knowledge." And if people don't know these things, they will fall for Republicans lies and deceptions which will lead to destruction.

    The head of the Republican Party (Rance Preivus), made the nonsensical statement (and I'm paraphrasing) "that the platform of the republican party is not necessarily Romney's platform".

    Rachel Maddow is my favorite of all the Talking heads. She can present information and not just call the Republicons just complete liars on every issue.

    I admire Missouri's Akin for not trying to cover up what Repubicons believe. The rest of the Republicons know that he speaks the truth in what they want to tell the US citizens, but they know it's still too early in our life spans to talk like that because there are still educated people in the USA. We haven't reverted back to the 1500s - yet.

    I Already have a clue, and there is number of others that do too, but there are many others who could not have debated the issues with Thomas Jefferson if they were able to today.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

    It is my belief that politicians today could not debate with James Madison either.

    “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.” ~ James Madison

    You know, the founding fathers left an example of how to handel commies and orther trash long before they came along. The Constitution is not worth a dime without its defenders. That was the message that the Declaration of Independence left to the coming generations. It is a test of people and their courage that is the bottom line. As Ben Franklin said;

    "Those who give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

    There is an unsaid statement in that, that most can't see, but patroits never miss the point.

    There was a "little conflict" over 150 years ago that lays waste to the Right Wing's interpretation that its "every state for themselves" called the "Civil War", a conflict which put us all under one flag and cemented the Federal Government as trumpeting any state laws that would oppose them. You can take up arms against our flag, but you will find yourself with a charge of sedition, and well you should.

    Before I answer that question, have you done your home work? I ask that because I have, but I doubt that very many liberials have. For instance, Have you read the following books;

    A REPORT OF THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS IN THE CONSTITUTION
    (THE SESSIONS OF THE CONFERENCE CONVENTION, DEBATES ON THE ARTICLES , AND FOR PROPOSING AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, HELD AT WASHINGTON, D.C., FEBRUARY,1861)

    Formulation and Political Philosophy of the Constitution of the United States
    (Prepared by the Legislative Reference Service, Library of Congress; June 30, 1952; See Library of Congress.com)

    The Constitution of the United States;
    A brief Study of the Genesis, Formulation and Political Philosophy of
    the Constitution of the United States
    (Reviewed by HARRY M. DAUGHERTY; ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES July 14, 1922)

    I have, so any responce to my reply will have to fit the confines of the official statements declaried in the several studies and debates that have been written since 1800. These books mentioned are just three of 27 such books including John Marshall's Philosophy and interpretation of the Constitution.

    What a bunch of Bull Sh*t.

    In other words, you REFUSE to answer my question.

    I don't need someone to tell me what the Constitutions says, because I can read. You're trying to over-complicate and obfuscate.

    The Constitution means EXACTLY what it says.

    I'll give you another shot at answering a simple question:

    Do you believe that it is the DUTY of the Federal Government to promote and provide for the General Welfare?

    What's the matter? Are you waiting for someone else to tell you what to say?

    It's pathetic the way you RWNJ's can't even think for yourselves.

    Our founding father wrote the following, do you know any of them;

    "The several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government" -- Thomas Jefferson

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms, disarms only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." - Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764.

    "Before any man can be considered a member of civil society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe." – James Madison

    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -- John Adams

    “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one dissoluble bond the principles of Civil Government and Principles of Christianity.” ~ John Q. Adams

    “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” - George Washington
