"Republican" Redefined, Comments from The Norman Goldman Show

This definition was posted on Facebook and Normal Goldman has requested that we share it.  It is a comprehensive list of what Republicans in general stand for these days.  For whom do you stand?  These writers of legislation whose questionable ideologies effect all of our lives are why it is so important to be well-informed and politically active.
From the Norman Goldman Show

When THEY say there is no "War On Women" - show them THIS! 

-         Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Equal Pay for Women Act

-         Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Al Franken's Anti-Rape Amendment

-         Every GOP member vote FOR Anti-Safe Abortion Legislation

-         Every GOP member vote FOR Blunt/Rubio Anti-Women's Equal Health
          Coverage Amendment. While Blunt/Rubio Amendment does not allow employer
          to deny men employee health coverage for Vasectomy, the Blunt/Rubio
          Amendment allows Employer to deny female employees & female
          dependents: contraception, tubes tied, and hysterectomies.

-          GOP Redefines Rape

-         GOP writes legislation to probe metal prongs up a woman's vagina

-         GOP change legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence
           to "accuser"

-         GOP writes legislation that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides
          abortion care. (South Dakota GOP)

-         GOP writes legislation to cut nearly a billion dollars of aid to low-income
          pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.

-         GOP writes legislation that would let hospitals allow a woman to die
          rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

-         GOP writes law cutting
ALL funding for low-income kids saying "Women
          should really be home with the kids, not out working (

-         GOP Cut Funding for Head Start, by $1 Billion.

-         Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women: GOP write Bill to CUT
          funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.
-         GOP Candidates for President pledge to Cut Funding for Planned

-         GOP voted for an Amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood
          health centers.

-         GOP writes Bill to eliminate all funds for Federal Family Planning Program.

-         GOP write Bill to Provide Contraception for wild horses but ENDS all Federal Funding 

          for Family Planning, including contraception coverage.  Dan Burton (R)

-         GOP Jan Brewer (R- AZ) Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday
          signed one of the most controversial and restrictive abortion bans in the
          country, which experts say effectively bans abortions after 18 weeks and
          declares that a woman could be pregnant 2 weeks before she even had sex.
          States passed 83 laws restricting access to abortion, nearly four times the
          23 laws passed in 2010. A lot of that had to do with the 2010 elections, which
          ushered in a wave of Republican legislators and governors. This year, the
          number of states with fully anti-abortion governments — in which both the
          governor and the legislature oppose abortion rights — increased from 10 to 15.

Got it? Pass it around... post it on your blogs...print it out and pin it to bulletin boards everywhere.”

It is stunning to me that this current crop of Republicans is so delusional.  Stunning.  God help us all.
