|This picture of Ron Paul is priceless, and it sums up my |
frustration with the Party.
It’s not just the Tea Partiers. A professor of mine, a particularly liberal professor, said that although they might seem radical, we should listen to them. He was right, because we should always listen when someone voices an opinion of dissent or dissatisfaction. This wouldn’t be a democratic nation if the only two choices we give to people are “accept the establishment,” or “fuck off and die.”
Be that as it may, I’ve listened to the Tea Partiers, and I’ve largely rejected their bullshit. There might be some agreement between them and I on some issues, but mostly I think they are nut-jobs. If you’re a Tea Partier, then I’m sorry. Sort of.
Anyway, they’re not the only ones boning the Republican Party. It seems anymore that the GOP is filled with wackoes and wingnuts. We’ve got Tea Partiers who make wild ass claims about the constitutionality of stuff when it’s clear that many of them making such bold claims have never read the Constitution. Sarah Palin constantly vomits her bullshit unfettered (she recently shit allover Obama for inviting a rapper to the White House for some poetry thing). Rand Paul, Ron Paul's son, just tried to equate making a doctor treat a patient who can't afford it to slavery. And let’s not forget the whole birther thing (even though I’d love to forget it).
Glenn Beck could go on Fox News tomorrow and say that Obama once visited Africa and sacrificed AIDS babies to Zul (Ghostbusters reference) and many people would believe it.
Let’s face it: the Republican Party is no place for intellectuals like me. There are too many uneducated idiots in the party for it to be anything meaningful. You might say, “well just because there are idiots doesn’t mean the party is screwed.” Yes it does, because the people we vote for know that the party is full of morons. They cater to those morons. They know that they will accept everything shit out on Fox News as absolute truth, and they know that most people in their base won’t fact check them. Some asshat in Congress said that “fetuses are the most persecuted minority in America.” Really?
Plus, there’s all sorts of ideological inconsistencies in the Party at the moment. We’re all about small government, government keeping their noses out of our business, but we also somehow think that we’re allowed to stick our noses into a woman’s decision on whether or not to terminate her pregnancy? We think we’re allowed to tell someone that he or she can’t serve in the military because of sexual preference? We think that gays are second class citizens whose unions don’t deserve to be legally recognized?
|Living proof that there is a God, and that He|
does in fact hate me.
Is it any of our business what faith Obama practices? Despite his constant reassurance that he’s a Christian, some fuck heads still say “he’s a Muslim!!!’ Ho-ly shitballs. You’re seriously going to tell me that you believe in the Constitution and in the same fucking breath insinuate that a Muslim should not be able to hold office? And you’re going to use the word “Muslim,’ as a term of derision? as a political talking point?
As long as the Republican party is filled with morons who completely have lost their sense of what this country is about and what the Founders believed it should be, then yes, we’re screwed. We’re going to be painted as racist, bigoted morons who follow the chants of dipshits like Beck and Palin.
What pisses me off is that I get lumped in with this bullshit. Any time I say to someone that I think abortion is morally wrong, I’m immediately branded as some sort of hate-mongering, bible beating, Christian fundamentalist who wants to control women. Even when I tell those fucks that I’m Pro-Choice, they don’t believe it.
My party has left guys like me behind. I’m not a racist. I’m not a bigot. I’m not an Evangelical Christian. I’m not a Tea Partier. And for fuck sake, I am not an ignorant tool. Until we raise the intellectual bar in the Republican Party, we may as well just throw in the towel now. But whey would they when they know there’s a steady supply of morons and retards to vote for them?
