    1. They want to repeal "Obamacare"
    1. They want to make cuts to Medicare and the VA so to transition these programs to the private sector.
    1. They don't want to privatize SS--they want to get rid of it completely. But if they can't get away with that, they'll settle to privatize it. Oh and, hike up the retirement age while they're at it, because you know, Americans just don't work enough.
    1. They want to overturn key parts of the FLSA, and it's not just limited to the minimal wage--they want to take away nearly all measures that protect workers from being exploited by their employers. And they'll do this under the guise of "creating jobs" and "giving businesses incentive" to not send jobs overseas.
    1. They want to overturn Roe v. Wade and re-criminalize a woman's right to choose. Some of these candidates aren't that crazy about a woman's right to divorce either. And if we are to take some of these nutjobs' talk at face value about repealing amendment and "restoring" the Constitution, they want to take away women's right to vote along with it. A Teabgger-controlled Congress could send us back 100 years on women's rights.
    1. They want a small government for giving business less accountability and an intrusive government for curtailing civil liberties. And reproductive rights and marriage are just the start of that slippery slope.
    1. Repealing DADT and DOMA? Federal support to lift gay marriage bans and to strengthen hate crime laws? This present Congress may be a frustrating disappointment, but a Teabagger-controlled Congress will send this country back 50 years on gay rights (at least).  
    1. They resolutely intend to spend the next Congress trying to get Obama impeached, because apparently they don't think Congress has other, more important things to do for the country, and because they don't give a flying fuck that he was democratically elected by YOU.

    So, if you don't want to spend the next 2 years watching how quickly all our progress, our social security nets and (what's left of) our civil liberties get erased while Congress spends the rest of its time hijacking our democracy and harassing our lawfully, democratically elected President over bullshit claims, then GOTV.

    (-8.50, -7.64) I voted 10/19/10.
