  •  My biggest fear (6+ / 0-)

    The biggest fear I have when it comes to the 2012 presidential election is that a republican does win and then will have the opportunity to appoint SCOTUS justices.  It's currently 5 - 4 conservative and if somehow that mix changes in favor of the conservatives because some republican president appointed them, we'd be right back in the fight against those that desperately want Roe v Wade overturned.  For rightwing conservative republicans, you gotta know that's the biggest apple on the tree for them.  

    - If you don't like gay marriage, blame straight people. They're the ones who keep having gay babies.

    •  Privatization of Social Security is the prize. (3+ / 0-)

      Policy-wise, states rights is limiting abortion rights and dividing and conquering the people against their best economic interests quite nicely. This works for both sides in advancing the further corporatization of our country into a plutonomy.

      Roe v. Wade will never be overturned.  A riot of white women blocking the bridges into D.C. is not on the agenda.  Why bother fomenting social unrest when they're winning this war by default ..through a Democrat?

      Republicans would be seen prompting misery.

      We can count on the further privatization (and degradation) of our public schools, the privatization of public libraries and the 'outsourcing' of every government function that they can think of including government itself.
