Ladies, We Can be the Game Changer in this Close Election: 10 Million More Women than Men Expected to Vote

This post is mainly for the ladies, but guys, you are very important to us, so don’t go anywhere.

There is a positive side in hearing/reading what GOPers think of our gender, and our bodies. We already knew; it was made evident by how they vote and now the public is more aware too. We don’t need men to give us power, when we can empower ourselves with the decision to get out and vote on election day. Some Republicans and talkers have had the audacity to voice their concerns lately over whether women should have the right to vote.

That should piss you the hell off.

From the video below, with Ms. Leslie Gore’s song, ”In 2008, 60% of voters were women. It is estimated that 10 million more women than men will vote in this election. Despite this, women make up only 16% of Congress.” We cannot contribute even more to society if their collective boot is still on our necks.

We have a voice. We vote. No longer should a group of men dictate whether rape is rape, or just a ‘little bit’ like rape. No longer should men decide whether we give birth to our rapist’s child. That is our decision.

This amazing video is circulating on the Internet. Watch:

Republicans are standing in support of Todd ‘legitimate rape’ Akin. 

The Romney campaign stands by Richard Mourdock’s offensive remarks. 

Joe Walsh believes, like others, believes that there is not one instance where a pregnant woman’s life is at stake, thereby needing an abortion.

Mitt Romney’s running mate is no more evolved than the others — in fact, he’s even worse. Paul Ryan is a huge factor in the War on Women, which he mocks.

The war does not end on election day. We still have Congress, but let’s keep the White House in our favor.

Women, let’s rise up. Our vote alone can win this election. A vote for Obama is a vote for your health and your right to choose. It is a vote for equal pay and equal rights. A vote for Obama is a vote for our families. It is a vote to marry who you choose. It’s a vote to start a family when you choose. A vote for Obama says that we won’t stand for violence against women and that rape is rape. Our vote ensures that our daughters will grow up with the same rights that we've had. A vote for Obama sends a message: This war on women must end. We will not go backwards.

This election is shockingly close. Our safety is at stake. Our silence is consent and our vote is our voice. Let’s get active. Let’s get out every vote we can. Let’s make this election a mandate. A mandate to finally ensure women the respect, dignity and equality we all deserve! This is now. This is our call to action. Once and for all, let’s take back the power that is so inherently and naturally ours!

Vote wisely ladies, and guys, if you love us, stand with us. We sure love you.
