Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Don't delude yourself. If you vote for Romney/Ryan, you're voting to end legal abortion in this country. Romney chose Ryan for a reason. Ryan is an anti-abortion absolutist and zealot.
You say you may be voting for Romney/Ryan because of their economic policies, even though they won't say exactly what they are and his advisors are the same people that got us into this economic mess under Bush.
Then, if Romney/Ryan wins, you need to look me clearly in the eye and say that you are willing for your daughters and granddaughters to not have access to legal abortion. That you are willing for your sons to forego college and be trapped in a marriage resulting from an unintended pregnancy. That you are willing for more and more babies to be born into poverty.
You don't get to walk away clean because you say you disagree with Romney/Ryan on their extremist anti-abortion positions. You will be complicity agreeing with their positions because a vote for Romney/Ryan will give them the power to take away women's fundamental right to an abortion.
If they are elected, don't come to me again for help with your abortion, your wife's abortion, your daughter's abortion, or your son's girlfriend's abortion.
I may have to look you clearly in the eye and shed a tear for your self induced misfortune.
