The GOP platform is "anti christ", if you will. They claim to be followers of their christ, yet blatantly do the opposite of what christ taught.

The whole of government is a hive(once again blinders). Lets say you won the lottery, would you give it all back? All of it. Because in your mind people dont deserve that much money. Or are there two forms of greed, one that pretains to others and one that pretains to you.I myself am keeping the money and doing some good with it, because I know the government cant. There is no difference between parties one goes with greedy corps and the other with greedy unions. Its all about controling you and your money. Buying votes with your tax dollars. Hey I got the money to build a big bridge in your district, vote for me. Hey I got you the most pay for building that bridge by passing laws that make it so unions can be the only ones doing state, county, or federal work, and not going to the lowist non union bid because that little guy dont count. Vote for me. I was in a union for many years. One day I was pulled off to the side by a few people I worked with and told I better slow down, not work so hard because we all may have to work that hard. Its all about keeping you in their control(government)and right now it seems to be working with you.

How is understanding the fraud of global warming pro corporation?

If global warming was such a threat, why not outlaw carbon? Why set up an exchange where carbon credits can bought and sold?

Because its yet another money making scam for the banksters.

Carbon is a building block of life. Humans exhale it and plants need it for photosynthesis.

Wake up.

If you think greed and ignorance are exclusive to republicans then you must have been in a coma for the last 3 years. These general statements never based by facts are useless. Go look at what the House of Representatives spend on running their offices in Washington DC. 453 congressmen spend $2 million a month on bottled water, and $35 million a month on child care. These senators get a pension after one term equal to their salary for the rest of their life and then passed on to spouse at death. Never go on Social Security.

Both parties are thugs, ignorant and very greedy. Both parties have looted this nation and now are going for your bank account for $14 trillion and counting. How does Pelosi net worth increase from $14 million to $34 million in one year. She makes $160,000 a year as a politician. Amazingly is able to invest her money in an economy that no one else is making money. She is the norm for Washington.

Everyone tries to make it down party lines. That is no different than being racist.

We need common sense in Washington and right now we do not have it from the top to the bottom and on all sides. We only have a bunch of self serving thugs.

Federal Government is the largest Organize Crime Syndicate in the world today. Make the mafia look like amateurs.

And not applying all those statements to the Dem party is extremely ignorant as well.

To even pitch the idea that the Dem holds the moral, ethical, intellectual and insight cards is really just denying everything within politics and the real world.

Might as well state that air doesn't exist, the world is flat and gravity is not real.

Everything is relative not absolute.

Did I SAY DEMOCRATS WERE MORAL SAINTS?
NO!
But the GOP is just much worse
The Democrats however flawed they are, are the only thing that we have to oppose the GOP, and that’s why we are indeed in trouble because Democrats are also being corrupted by the greedy corporatists.

Though compared to Republicans, THEY MAY BE SAINTS. Since Republicans HAVE NO MORAL CENTER.

They espouse a selfish, ethnocentric me me me me and me only philosophy that is immoral and anti human AND IN THE END CAN SPELL DOOM FOR THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD.


Also it’s the issues that matter something that your IGNORANT post doesn’t even deal with

I guess you want to ignore "an eye for an eye"?


I guess you want to ignore the fact that Jesus never said that. People who make statements like yours only reinforce what the OP pointed out.
Jesus said that even though the Pharoahs say an eye for an eye, I tell you that if someone slaps you on the cheek, turn and offer him the other. Or something like that. The law of love requires us to forgive.
I know this fact, like so many other inconvenient truths gets those Teapubliconservangelicals all fired up, but Jesus really was a long haired, bearded, sandal wearing, tree hugging, love your brother hippie. He didn't carry an AR-15 and drive a big 4x4 with a big sack o nuts hanging from the trailer hitch.
And Jesus didnt go around saying "An eye for an eye".
One more reason that the GOP needs to change their mascot from an Elephant to an Ostrich.

Oh stop it already.
If you were not just stating that, you would have included Dems as well.

And stop the whole "All Reps" crap as well.
No, the Rep party (Politicians) don't really represent Reps as a whole, hence the formation of the Tea Party.

While I see somewhat what the OP is stating here, I have to say that it is just exacerbating the already pronounced problem we have in this country today; polarization.

It does us no good to continue this finger pointing and blaming.

We have to look for our commonalities, the topics and subjects we can agree on.

That is how we keep our humanity, and our country from spiralling into violence and destruction.

They want you to see this colossal divide between us, so that we can keep stuffing money in their pockets to fight the boogey men on the other 'side.'

If you think Democrats aren't fallible, you are sadly mistaken.

I hope, for your sake, that you can see the error of this thread, and find a way instead to open lines of communication with those you've been trained to oppose.

As a liberal, you are failing.

Embrace the commonalitites AND differences and have a chance to change their heart, or continue to inflame and name call and keep the status quo.

Are you suggesting that Jesus had a laissez faire attitude for the poor and downtrodden?

Because I'm sure that is news to most of us, Christian and heathen alike.

No, he was for something like teaching a man to fish. Or something to that affect.....

He was for the person to help, not the reigning Govt.

Info, Grab a paper bag and breathe deep, you seem to be hyperventilating.


Stop the hate and see what Democrats have done as well. The two party system sucks, but defending criminal actions of one to justify the other just doesn't cut it in my book.

There is good and bad in both parties...the good usually comes from individuals, not the party.

Politics is not a black and white world...it's very gray.

After reading your thread opener and the replies, I almost allowed you to manipulate me into becoming angry. Once I realized the motivation behind this thread, I took a step back and looked at the bigger picture.

Regardless about what you say in these forums, your influence on others around you is nonexistent.

Your opinion does not matter.

Have a nice day.

Surely you must believe, as a US Soldier, that WE are the reigning 'Government,' as citizens of a Democracy?

Should 'we' let them starve?

I have just finished reading through the posts.
*good god!*

This is a great example of what happens when you let someone else (an opponent) define who you are.


Liberals are emotional, not rational, and are quick to rhetoric. They spew venom with the same enthusiasm as a pit viper. Their rational part of the brain is so obviously under developed, I'm surprised they don't all wear corrective hats. They soil themselves when faced with logic, facts, and data, and reply with a screech that only dogs can hear.


See? Pleasant, wasn't it. I suppose mine ( and others) greatest mistake was to even reply to this biased, angry thread. Oh, well. Lesson learned. I do enjoy sparing with liberals, but on such insubstantial topics like this where the narritive was pre-determined, it becomes an exercise in futility.

In answer to the thread title (at least a question mark was placed) it is no. The republican party is not one of igorance and greed.

(after being on this thread, I feel like I have to bathe)

Nice use of twisting. Well played.

Your use has nothing to do with that.

The Govt has no business sticking its nose into welfare and the like for the masses.
With a small scope of exception, of course. Those that don't have the mental or physical capacity to care for them selves.

How come it's the Democrat's skipping clinical trials and FDA oversight to "fasttrack" medicine and medical devices into the market without testing for safety?

$$$$ and jobs.

Under Obama they started yanking peoples spine discs out and putting plastic spacers into peoples spines.....never bolted the vertebrae together.

They advertised it as "minimally invasive" and doctors saw the fast money they could make before the whole thing came crumbling down.

Were there Clinical Trials on the OxyContin formulation? Obama forced Purdue Pharma to reformulate Oxycontin....hmmm new pills don't stop pain in cancer/trauma patients anymore.....so where's the Narcotics?

Ahhhh......exported it for $$$ and gave Americans placebo narcotics instead?

Shame on you Democrats....there's going to be investigations and trials soon.
