Whew. I guess last night really cleared the air about who cares for who in this election.
Well, I care and I know all about "those dependent people".
I was the homeless kid after my mom left my father who threatened to kill her.
I was the kid on free lunch-- so poor they took me out of class in the morning to give me breakfast.
I was the 14 year old kid whose WWII father died and my sister and I got his SS benefits to the age of 18.
I was the kid orphaned at 16 who relied on the grace of my mother's lover because I was left penniless and no one else would care for my sister and I.
I was the kid with the pell grants and the stafford loans who got a BA.
I was the young woman got pregnant at 18, realized I was in no shape to have a child and sought an abortion.
I was the young woman who messed up again, got pregnant and released my child for adoption.
I was the young pregnant mom on WIC, food stamps and medicaid.
I was the young woman who even though my income was considered poverty level that paid taxes.
I was the woman that worked as a mental health outreach worker to keep those with mental health issues as healthy as possible, off the streets, and out of the hospital barely able to pay rent myself.
I was the woman who sought all of my healthcare from Planned Parenthood because they gave me cancer screenings, birth control, and cared for all aspects of me.
I am the woman who met the man of her dreams, has two kids, and now is a part of the 1%.
I am the woman who believes that you give what you owe.
I am the woman that knows all about the programs you plan to cut and gut.
I am the woman who lives on the border of Illinois and Indiana that will get out the vote and educate people on what you really plan on doing for your 1% since no one else matters to you.
And I am not your 1%, Mitt. You can take care of someone else because I don't want any of what you have to offer. You are a baseless, gutless, uncaring man. May God have mercy on your soul because you won't get it from me.
