Poverty rate for Children in the US sets at 22%. These are the most vulnerable among us. They cant speak for themselves. They don’t have lobbyists in DC looking after them. Who will fight for them? Will you? will I? We must. The republican party wants only to take their only lifeline. The TeaParty led GOP will gut the Farmbill if allowed, striping over 20billion in food allowances to these impoverished babies. Please call your congressperson and say enough is enough.

Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly says Republicans are making a mistake by trying to court Hispanics with comprehensive immigration reform legislation.
“I think that’s a great myth because the Hispanics who come in like this are going to vote Democrat,” Schlafly told the Focus Today radio program in a clip obtained by Right Wing Watch on Wednesday. “And there is not the slightest bit of evidence they are going to vote Republican.”
“And the people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes — the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election, and there are millions of them,” she advised.
Schlafly added that the Republican establishment had given the party a “series of losers” with the nominations of former Sen. Bob Dole, Sen. John McCain and former Gov. Mitt Romney.
“The propagandists are leading us down the wrong path,” the activist remarked. “There’s not any evidence at all that these Hispanics coming in from Mexico will vote Republican.”
Last month, Schlafly told Republicans that they would be committing “suicide” if they enacted immigration reform.

Yet another Democratic candidate has fallen asleep at the wheel in a special election from Massachusetts. John Kerry’s old senate seat is in play and I am convinced that we can do much better in this race. A poll shows Rep. Ed Markey up by 7 points. Let’s wake up and smell the republican in the race. He is a radical rightwinger who waffles on issues. How can we trust a guy who donated to president Obama in 2008. Gabriel Gomez is a typical republican who will be Mitch Mcconnell’s puppet.
Don’t be foolish and vote for a second Scott Brown.
I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in “A,” “B,” “C” and “D.” Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?
And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of “conservatism.” ~Barry Goldwater(R) 1981.
When you say “radical right” today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican Party away from the Republican Party, and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics goodbye.~Barry Goldwater(R) 1994
Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.`~ Barry Goldwater.November 1994
I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.~Barry Goldwater July 1981.
