  •  Women need to realize the peril from the GOP (4+ / 0-)

    To reproductive rights, and therefore women's  ability to control their own lives.  Greg Abbott in TX is a right-wing idiot like Rick Perry and the 4 clowns in the GOP Senate primary in GA are crazy as well.  (Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, Jack Kingsron and Karen Handel, who wrecked the Komen foundation.) If enough women pay attention to what is happening and come out and vote, Wendy Davis and especially Michelle Nunn can be elected.

    Don't bet your future on 97% of climate scientists being wrong. Take action on climate now!

    •  Women may be the 'minority' to count on (1+ / 0-)

      Although census figures, as far as I know, dispute women as a minority. Women can overlap a number of groups to be trampled under neoconservative 'values'. You are right, they are probably the most important group who needs to understand the voting booth in 2014 could be a huge game changer if we can take more seats. Between the GOP meltdown and more progressive arguments being aired lately we have a good chance of a long term dislodging of the Republican Party from driving the national discussion and out of Washington if we can get enough outraged Democrats to the polls in November.
