Even though they advance larger government, more taxes, pro-abortion policies and the liberal candidates that support them, you can't always tell by their ads. Many of these groups even have neutral or civic-oriented-sounding names. Because they sound neutral, their messages often effectively reach new voters who don't recognize the hidden agendas.

ye gods people. if the GOP wants to win, stop whining, man up and get someone better than Romney.

Just go by the rule if the group has the word "family" in its name, it's probably doing something you don't want.

/I like family, I have a family.

It's rich that a conservative is whining about "innocuous sounding" political organizations when damn near all of theirs are named some variation of "Freedom," "Liberty," "Family," or my personal favorite, "Constitution" - while championing none of those things.

Sort of like anything on the Republican side that has the word "family" in it is pretty much an anti-gay hate group?

well...i've always thought that most of the GOP 'family' type organizations were more a refuge for deeply in the closet self hating gays but that's just my impression.

Effective regulations to preserve our natural resources? The devil's work.

Take the League of Women Voters, for instance. Its name conjures up images of gray-haired grandmas conducting voter registration drives and working the polls on Election Day.

What ARE you talking about?? Why I remember a message from the "Council Against Gay Rights!" It was right in between "The White Collar Crime Is Victimless Group" and "Abortion Doctors Are Mass-Murderers and If the Liberal Media Isn't Going to Punish Them, You Should Do It Yourself....and Associates."

Government control. It's part of a hundred year plan to fraudulently collapse the economy and position the government as a 'superhero' to come save the populace. They push for populist tactics like punishing the wealthiest and hardest working Americans to pay for free/cheap services. People build up a dependency culture on these ideas - they'll take a 'free' lunch if offered, it's human nature - until they don't know how to get a lunch that isn't free. It's like domestication of animals; they simply won't be able to survive in the wild. Give them government health care, government food stamps, government housing, government education, government subsidized 'green' energy, government immigrant amnesty programs (fastest way to buy votes), government toxic waste regulations, government cell phones, and government sponsored religion, and they won't ever have to think for themselves. The only decision to be made is what flavor of government cheese to bring home from the government requisition office.

This is in tandem with similar socialist ideas in Europe. The mistake Russia made, and that the Democrats have learned from, was being too eager in their push for Communism. You can't just take a wild, free people and enforce a rigorous social system on them, you have to cow them, train them, make them docile. Once the Western World has sufficiently pacified the majority of the populace, it's just a small step to communism and race wars.

This is an incredibly crucial election because the USA has been the most resistant of the countries against these influences. They've taken root in the Middle East under the banner of Sharia, and in Europe under the philosophy of Democratic Socialism. China is poised to engulf most of Asia with its communism, and we're the last defense against this communist subversion. A vote for Romney, while he may not be the ideal candidate, isn't just a vote against Obama, but a vote for the last bastion of capitalism and free thinking in the world. The very precept of freedom hinges on this election.

Yes because the league of women wouldn't actually support those things as being in the best interest of women...they must be shills for the democrats.

If they really were neutral they would accept any one of the invasive overstepping GOP vaginal wand ideas, or their "legitimate rape" biology lessons.

Teach your children than unless a group takes an equal amount of liberal policy and finds some nuggets of derp to accept in compromise that they are liberal homosexual death panel commies.

Unless he is serious, in which case, I retract my previous remark.

But seriously, sprawl15's not crazy.

I do kinda agree with the remark about China, though. They play the long game and have not forgotten the interference of us Western barbarians. I don't think it's much of a stretch to say that their desired end goal is political or economic domination of southeast Asia.
