This project requires me to ask a teenage liberal several questions about their opinions on certain issues. I was wondering if you are a teenager, or if not, could you direct me to a teenager? Thank you. I hope you enjoy your day(:

how about you fuck yourself

The Obama campaign has released a video on how horrible Romney would be for American women. I certainly don’t need convincing - but if I did, this would likely do it.

Daily Kos: Obama leads Mitt Romney by landslide numbers
The big difference from 2008, when Obama got 365 EVs to John McCain’s 173 is that Obama loses Indiana, Iowa and Nebraska’s single electoral vote from its Omaha-based district. But that’s it. The end result is still a 341-197 landslide.
And with Romney losing Latinos and women by landslide numbers, any effort to turn this slide and claw back some of these states will be particularly difficult—and he still has to hold on to those few states in which he currently leads.
So what do Republicans have to say about all this? Gas prices! Gas prices! Gas prices!
Last time I checked, gas prices were high now. It ain’t doing Romney a lick of good.

Bernie Sanders Takes Down Every Single GOP Presidential Candidate
In a masterful take down, Sen. Bernie Sanders took apart the 2012 GOP presidential field and called them the fringe of American society.
On HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher asked about a question about the Republican primary and Sen. Sanders went off,

One of the problems that I see in the Republican primaries is that these guys are so out of touch with the reality that the American people are going through that it is really quite amazing. We are seeing a middle class collapsing. We are seeing poverty increasing. We’re seeing a nation in which the rich are getting richer and we have the most unequal distribution of wealth and income of any major country.
Do they have one word to say about this issue?
We have 50 million people without any health insurance. We are the only country, major country on earth that does not guarantee healthcare to every man, woman, and child as a right. Do you know what their solution is? Cut Medicare cut Medicaid. You got Social Security, the most successful government program in the history of our country. A program which has not resulted in one penny of deficit for this country, and you know what they want to do? They want to cut Medicaid. They want to cut Social Security. They want to privatize these important programs.
These guys are way, way out of touch from where the American people are, and I think when you look at them issue by issue, tax breaks for the rich, cut Social Security, more money on defense spending, they are literally a fringe element in American society.
Last but not least, you’ve got virtually every scientist in this world who studies the issue who tells us global warming is a huge, huge problem. We’ve got to move in a very aggressive way to break our dependence on fossil fuel, move to sustainable energy, energy efficiency. These guys don’t even acknowledge the reality of global warming.
