My mother was a registered Democrat until she married my father in 1959. She is a registered nurse and a practicing Roman Catholic. My father was an engineer at Rockwell International. They both had lucrative careers. In 1968 my mother gave birth to a stillborn child. It was a genetic problem that had a 25 percent chance of happening with every pregnancy. My mother when on the pill until she had a hysterectomy many years later. In 1972 they adopted me. When I was 14 I was put on the pill for medical reasons. My parents had no problems with birth control. Please, if you care to, join me after the jump.
My mother went to church to pray, my father for appearances. My parents always voted
Republican. They were greedy and did not want to share to make our world a better place. They did, however, use society and cheat society, every chance they got. They were also racists, though I did not find this out until I wanted to date a black man.
When my father died in 2001 he left my mother quite well off. Several years later she married a a rich, Catholic republican. They are both in their late seventies and use Medicare and social security. They have already voted for Romney. They live in a wealthy section of Orange County, California.
When I explained to my mother what a vote for Romney would mean for women, she said those things would never happen. She cannot get pregnant, so she does not mind selling the rest of us out for what she thinks will be lower taxes.
Right now my family of 3 lives in a motel room. We are not better off then we were 4 years ago but we will be soon if President Obama is reelected. A Romney presidency would cost my mother little but devastate my family, she does not care about that. She does not care that a Romney presidency would destroy the future of her only grandchild. She and her husband are not stupid, They do not watch Fox or listen to Rush. They are simply greedy and do not even come close to practicing what they preach. If I believed in souls, I would fear for theirs. I do not know how to make them see the light. I do not think they are rich enough to benefit from a Romney presidency. I think they just like to think they are. They will not get their greedy, cold hearted way.
