Well, let's see.
The members of the Taliban wear robes and turbans.
The Republican Party officials wear suits. Hmm.....
The Taliban hates gays, lesbians, and Jews.
The Republican Party hates gays and lesbians, and many secretly hate Jews.
The Taliban hates American soldiers.
The Republican Party views American soldiers as dupes and freeloaders witnessed by their filibusterer of legislation designed to help them and their overall failure to serve.
The Taliban hates America and the freedoms given to the people.
The Republican Party dismisses half the American population and seeks to eradicate the rights and freedoms they are entitled to under the Constitution.
The Taliban believes that women are not equal to men and are not entitled to the same rights.
The Republican Party believes that women are second class citizens witnessed by their legislation and stance on issues such as fair pay and women's reproductive rights.
Both the Taliban and the Republican Party are right wing religious fundamentalists and they are both a threat to democracy and the American way.
If there is anyone who still believes that a Romney/Ryan administration will create well-paying jobs and strengthen what's left of the American middle class, just look at what's going on in Freeport, Illinois right now. Bain Capital is outsourcing the manufacturing jobs of Sensata Technologies to China. Sensata had it's most profitable year, ever, last year. Bain's contempt for the middle class is indisputable because the outsourced workers are required to train their Chinese counterparts.
Decades ago when I was looking for my first job, ads in the classified section of newspapers asked applicants to, not only forward a resume and references, but also salary requirements. Those days are long gone. And if Romney is elected, they most assuredly will never return.
