Republican women share their history with the Republican Party and how the party's views are no longer aligned with their own. They don't support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and share how Romney and Ryan are wrong for women.
As they share:
"If you truly believe in a small government. That government shouldn't be deciding what I can and cannot do with my own body."
"There is no way on God's green earth that I would consider voting Republican."
"I don't even want to think about them having control—as a woman I don't."
"If you're a conservative woman, and you believe in small government, then Barack Obama is your candidate because he's keeping the government out of the decisions that should remain between you and God, and you and your own conscience."
"My voting record: 92 Bush, 96 Did not vote, 2000 Bush, 2004 Did not vote, 2008 McCain, 2012 No question in my mind--- Obama The GOP has turned into a radical right wing party. Republican party has turned into a hate group. They hate women, gays, blacks, foreigners, middle class, poor. It has become the party of rich white men who look down on a good portion of American citizens. Romney's racist birthirism comment says it all. This man is not presidential material. Obama all the way"

"Within the scale of the life of the cosmos, a human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a visitor to this planet, a guest, who has only a finite time to stay. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time lonely, unhappy, and in conflict with our fellow visitors?"
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Beyond Religion, 2011

Last month two brave Swedes wearing teddybear masks took off in a small plane from Lithuania and flew unannounced into the airspace of Belarus armed only with a sense of humor and parachute equipped teddybears. The plush arrivals carried leaflets proclaiming "We support the Belarusian struggle for freedom of speech." As noted on their website: "A dictator can be hated, despised or feared. The only thing he cannot survive is being laughed at." The oppressive leader of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, now knows what it is like to be laughed at. And the people of Belarus now know that the world has seen their plight.
Minsk Teddybear Drop
A Powerful New Video From President Obama's Campaign
You work hard, stretch every penny, but chances are you pay a higher tax rate than him: Mitt Romney made $20 million dollars in 2010, but paid only 14% in taxes—probably less than you.
Now he has a plan that will give millionaires another tax break and raises taxes on middle class families by up to $2000 dollars a year. Mitt Romney's middle class tax increase: he pays less, you pay more.

And A Must Read In The New York Times From UCLA Professor Jared Diamond on Mitt Romney's Misappropriation of Diamond's Important Book - Guns Germs & Steel :
"Mitt Romney may become our next president. Will he continue to espouse one-factor explanations for multicausal problems, and fail to understand history and the modern world? If so, he will preside over a declining nation squandering its advantages of location and history."
