How the Republicans are Losing the Country

without comments

I used to be a Republican.  Not only that, I used to really be a Republican.  As in, “you dirty steenkin’ pinko-commie-liberal” type Republican.  In High School, I praised the awesomeness that was Ronald Reagan and laughed heartedly at Jimmy Carter’s foolishness.  I never believed entirely in everything the party stood for, but I believed in most of it and where we saw eye-to-eye were the most important issues to me.  Small government, trickle down economics, foreign policies, strong national defense… these were the foundations of my support for the Republican party.

Today… not so much.  I voted for Barack Obama this past election and quite honestly, I’ll be proud of that decision even if he fails to deliver even most of what he’s promised.  I wouldn’t call myself a Democrat, though… I just voted for the person I felt was best for our country.  I don’t really know what I am, but I do know that I am definitely no longer a Republican.  In fact… I’m so far from it, I find myself initially predisposed against candidates, just because they are Republicans.


Here’s an example of what makes my skin crawl and long for the days when these out dated dinosaurs of hate finally die off of my planet:

GOP lawmakers cringe at colleagues’ words on sexuality

Sen. Dave Schultheis, of Colorado Springs, on Wednesday opposed a bill requiring pregnant women to be tested for HIV so that if they are infected their babies can be treated to prevent the virus’s transfer.

“This stems from sexual promiscuity for the most part, and I just can’t go there,” he said.

“We do things continually to remove the consequences of poor behavior, unacceptable behavior, quite frankly. I’m not convinced that part of the role of government should be to protect individuals from the negative consequences of their actions.”

Really??  So this boil on the butt of humanity wants an unborn baby to have AIDS. even though it could be prevented, just to teach Mom a lesson?!?!  Seriously?!?!  What sort of human being thinks like that?

* What he said afterward: “What I’m hoping is that yes, that person may have AIDS, have it seriously as a baby and when they grow up, but the mother will begin to feel guilt as a result of that. The family will see the negative consequences of that promiscuity and it may make a number of people over the coming years … begin to realize that there are negative consequences and maybe they should adjust their behavior. We can’t keep people from being raped. We can’t keep people from shooting each other. We can’t keep people from jumping off bridges. People drink and drive, and they crash and kill people. Poor behavior has its consequences.”

Weep for humanity, people.
