Republicans

[Picture of President Ronald Reagen]

You gotta love Republicans.

They claim a national health care system would overstep the bounds of a federal government. That saving lives would in turn make the federal government far too large, because government just doesn’t work. And then…and then. They get elected to the white house to prove it.

They claim abortion is immoral, and that a fetus’ rights are more important than a mother’s. That forcing a mother to devote her life support systems to a parasite is perfectly acceptable, because it is “life” they are protecting. And then…and then. When you are an adult, you learn of their pro-death, pro-gun, pro-war policies.

They claim Gay Marriage should be made illegal on a federal level, because “God hates fags” and homosexuality is a sin. That homosexuality is “unnatural”, “unclean”, and “evil”. And then…and then. You learn about the sexual orientations of many of their religious and political leaders.

They claim “Reaganomics” is the way to run the economy. That all the money given to the rich will eventually “trickle down” and help the needy. And then…and then. You take a U.S. history class, and learn how Reagan quadrupled the trade deficit, tripled the national debt, and increased the number of people below the poverty by eight million.

They claim Christianity should play a fundamental role in our government. That this nation was founded on Christian morals and Christian values. And then…and then. The old testament, the constitution, the fact that only eight percent of people break away from their parents’ religion. That religion is nothing but an indoctrinating, non-skeptical, non-intellectually demanding, maliciously violent, group thinking ideology of the past. Knowledge of distortion, contradiction, and down-right silliness. They know all this, and yet they continue.

Like I said, you gotta love Republicans.

  1. Republicans are superior to Democrats in every sense.

    The only ways in which they are inferior, are the only things I despise about the Republican party, and those are of morality and rurality. When the party strays from its libertarian core and ventures into religious doctrines and outdated methods, we are surely doomed and dissent is inevitable.

    But in the end, Republicans realize that big government doesn’t work, and that the individual is more important than society as a whole (i.e. freedom is a necessity). Capitalism FTW!!

    – Your claim lacks evidence.
    – The funding would mostly come from the “Rich”. Of coarse, you can set back and say “No problem”. However, it is the Rich who create jobs in America (most of them). Its almost like creating a Anti-Tobacco Campaign and funding it with profit off of Tobacco.
    – These are the people who got us into the current economic crisis (Both Parties). Now you want to trust them with the largest “National Health Care system” known to mankind?

    “They claim abortion is immoral, and that a fetus’ rights are more important than a mother’s.”

    – Again, your claim lacks evidence.
    – But yes I do claim murder is immoral.
    – No one is arguing the Baby’s right over the Mom’s. You will find that the common Conservative belief is that:
    If the Baby is endangering the mother, it is self defense and is necessary.
    If the mother just doesn’t want a baby, it is murder.
    – Do you know what a Partial Birth Abortion is? Well you are arguing for it so I guess I’m going to have to tell you. In general, the alive and healthy baby is given partial birth up to 2 inches of being completely out of the baby’s mother. A hole is then drilled in the (upper) spinal cord and the brain of the baby is then sucked out through a vacuum-like object. In this case, the mother would not of been injured and could of had the baby, and even put it up for adoption! But, she chose to end the life of a baby who was very much alive. These procedures can only occur if the baby is fully developed. This is a very personal subject for me because my mother had a miscarriage. I have always wanted a sibling to play with, but It unfortunately cant happen. This is why I’m “Pro Life”.

    “That religion is nothing but an indoctrinating, non-skeptical, non-intellectually demanding, maliciously violent, group thinking ideology of the past. Knowledge of distortion, contradiction, and down-right silliness. They know all this, and yet they continue.”

    – Your true ignorance enlightens me.
    – Christianity has been the only solid rock this world has ever known, besides Judaism. Your scientist rely on self interpreted evidence to guide their “Theory” on how it all began. Scientist once all agreed that the world was flat, that flies spontaneously appeared, that the earth is hollow, that Copenhagen was a logical guy, that nothingness went boom and made us! You have no logical evidence to support your Anti-Christian views. Or a logical theory of creation. Every theory besides Christianity and Judaism create more questions.

  3. @ politicalgrapevine: I am not going to argue with you, other than to say that I wasn’t trying to prove any of my positions. I just wanted to make a generalized statement. If we were to argue, our contentions would go down a predictable path. I didn’t create this blog to argue (I have debate.com for that); I created it to post my opinions.

    Unlike you, I don’t delete non-abusive comments on my blog, even if they are contrary to my own beliefs.

  4. i agree with the parts about economics, national health care, and Christianity, but the other ones…
    gay marriage:this, just like issue of prostitution, are questions of morals. and i think the only way to deal with these issues is by popular vote, thus the propositions.
    small side question: what is your understanding of marriage? what does it mean to you?

    @abortion: i believe that a fetal’s rights is NOT greater than then parent, but this is not the point. the mother made a CHOICE, a conscious decision, to be impregnated with babies. i do not have statistics, but i believe that most people understand that unprotected sexual intercourse result in BABIES. if you choose to sex(verb) someone sans condoms/pills/i-forgot-what-the-medical-procedure-for-ending-sperm-is-called, then you are making an informed choice to create a living human.

    of course, instances where it is NOT a choice, i.e. rape, abortion should be allowed.

    you make a choice, you take the consequences.

    analogy: instead of inventing cars that are made entirely of foam so that drunk driver will not hurt anybody, we advocate NOT to drink and drive

  5. @ Benjamin:
    I will take a cue from the past. You may totally post a rebuttal to this; understand, though, that I dislike comment debates, and will therefore not respond after this. If you want, challenge me to a debate on debate.com

    1) I do not see gay marriage as “immoral.” But even if I did, my own personal morality judgment holds no value, because no one owns the concept of marriage. Even if most people do see gay marriage as immoral, that doesn’t justify taking away the right for gays to marry. That’s a classic case of ad argumentum populum.

    2) I could make the obvious arguments, but let me try something different. How are people going to prove someone didn’t get raped? How are people going to prove they were using condom/were on the pill but an accident occurred? There exists tremendous practicality issues with your exceptions policy. Add in all the obvious arguments for abortion, and bingo– you have the rational for my ideology on the issue.

  6. 1)i shall challenge you on debate.com if i have time
    2)”How are people going to prove someone didn’t get raped?”
    i’m pretty sure you meant ….DID get raped…
    my logic is you may only get abortion if you were raped. well, i think we have a whole section of our community doing that, it’s called something along the lines of POLICE
    “How are people going to prove they were using condom/were on the pill but an accident occurred?” i believe that sex education should be ordained to a certain extent. they need to be notified that condoms fail ~3% and pills~8%, and that the combined is ~.24% if you are willing to take the risk, go ahead. any argument about discomfort of using these methods can be easily rebuked by the discomfort of having an abortion
