I'm sick of how the Republican party portrays itself. The party of values. I used to believe it.. ten years ago you couldn't have convinced me
otherwise.. but the machinations I have seen since 2000 have proven to me that that notion is pure horshyte. They have behaved as bad, if not worse,
than the Democrats. And let's not get started on the power they have grabbed and consolidated from California to Texas to Florida to Ohio. It's
obscene. Tom DeLay makes Clinton's lackies and stooges look like schoolgirls. Hell, DeLay makes Nixon's crew look like boyscouts.
My arse. Does someone with good morals
write a book on virtues and then gamble like there's no tomorrow?(Bennett) Does
someone with good morals
change the rules so as to not be kicked out of a leadership position for criminal wrong-doing? (DeLay) Do they take
pay-offs for pimping views in the press?(Williams) Do they successfully advocate unlawfully invading a sovereign nation based on a plethora of lies
(when they themselves profit from the destruction)? (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, NEO CONSERVATIVES) Do they straight up lie into the camera on national
television to cover their arse? (Rice) Do they blame others (CIA, FBI) for their own fabulous failures?(Bush) Do they laugh at the thought of
executing someone - especially considering they claim to be a CHRISTIAN?(Bush) Do they advocate tossing aside the Geneva conventions and administering
TORTURE? (Gonzales) Do they sow and promote fear and Xenophobia through elaborate fictions to ensure their positions of power?(BushCo. and sycophantic
media elites) Do they impose their version of morality upon others, disregarding and disrespecting other peoples cultures and customs, (Franklin
Graham) while being used
as a cut-out for clandestine operations? Do they promote torture and then offer up the lowliest of their servants for
sacrifice when it is discovered?(Rumsfeld) I have one word for that COWARDICE!
Do they trample on this nation's hard-won civil
rights?(Asscroft) I could go on and on and on..
The GOP has devolved into the most corrupt group of bought and paid for egomaniacs and sleezeballs I have just about ever seen. I could never have
imagined, back in '94, when they came back into power, that I would witness such abuse of authority and sheer contempt for our laws and
This is not Reagan's party. This isn't even Nixon's party. If either of them could see what was going on, they'd be spinning in their graves.
Let's take one example that clearly set them apart from these clowns. Both men ran into strong opposition b/c of their policies.. Nixon with 'Nam,
Reagan as governor. Neither of them jailed protestors or hid from them. What did they do? They openly engaged their critics. They literally met them
on the street and conversed freely with them. They faced it head on and many times disarmed a great many who disagreed. But then again.. they were
great men. Something this nation sorely lacks in today's version of Demokracy.
I can smell Revolution on the wind...
