You Might be a Dubya Supporter if...
by Robin Buckallew
The last couple of days, I have been having this recurring nightmare that Dubya won 51% of the popular vote in this election. I wake in a cold sweat, thinking thank God it was only a nightmare. The American people could never be fooled by such a man. We have access to public libraries with books and magazines galore. We have several hundred TV stations and thousands of radio stations to give us information night and day, so we can easily sort out truth from falsehood. We have a myriad of public universities and think tanks whose job it is to keep us educated and informed about the issues. And yet....

Do you ever have a lingering worry that you might be a closet Dubya supporter? That you might, deep down inside, have voted for him subconsciously while pretending you were voting for the other guy (what’s his name again? I’m having trouble remembering). Well, I have been reading lots of articles lately based on polls of what beliefs are held by Dubya supporters, and I have been talking to a lot of Dubya supporters (not the closet kind, but the openly flag-waving, Bible-toting supporters). And I have compiled a list that will help you determine if you are, indeed a Dubya supporter.
You might be a Dubya supporter if....
· You watch Fox news as your only source of information.
· You find yourself saying “ditto” to Rush Limbaugh
· You believe the majority of the rest of the world is staunchly behind Dubya
· You believe Dubya “earned” an MBA from Harvard
· You think dissent is unpatriotic and unAmerican
· You think the only amendment in the Bill of Rights is the second amendment
· You believe the 9/11 commission said the administration had no warning whatsoever that someone might attack on American soil
· You believe the 9/11 commission said that Saddam Hussein was instrumental in the attack
· You believe that we found WMDs in Iraq
· You believe Saddam refused to allow the weapons inspectors in the country
· You believe draft evaders were bravely fighting the Vietnam war (from Alabama) and folks decorated with the Purple Heart weren’t
· You believe the above doesn’t apply to Bill Clinton
· You believe Dubya bravely and resolutely led the nation on 9/11
· You believe going shopping is an appropriate response to terrorist attacks
· You believe you can liberate people by killing them
· You believe we are reconstructing Iraq
· You believe national health insurance is a good idea for Iraq, but a bad idea for America
· You believe capturing Saddam made the world safer
· You believe Dubya supports the International Criminal Court
· You believe modulating your opinions in the face of new evidence is “flip-flopping”
· You believe standing your ground even when the evidence is against you is being consistent and strong
· You believe creationism is based on the best science
· You believe teaching kids sex education will increase teen promiscuity and pregnancies
· You believe criminalizing abortion will make it go away
· You believe the WTO and IMF are actually making things better in Thrid World countries
· You believe sending American jobs overseas is actually creating more American jobs
· You believe working women are the cause of all the world’s woes (except on those days when all the world’s woes are caused by Affirmative Action, public education, welfare, or separation of church and state)
· You believe the founding fathers were bible-beating fundamentalists who intended the country to be run by the Christian church
· You believe America is God’s chosen country
· You believe gay marriage will destroy heterosexual marriage, and lead us all to marry our pets
· You believe guns don’t kill people, people kill people, but deny that people with guns kill more people
· You believe the NEA is a terrorist organization
· You believe the NRA is not a special interest group, but the EPA is
· You believe Dick Cheney sold all his interest in Halliburton
· You believe black people have all the good jobs
· You believe black people are the only ones on welfare
· You believe black people keep having lots of kids to get more welfare
· You believe 2% of scientists disputing global warming constitutes “major” disagreement in the scientific community
· You believe a little global warming is good for you, anyway
· You believe there is enough oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil
· You believe drilling in ANWR will destroy only a few acres
· You believe using more oil will creates larger oil reserves
· You believe that Dubya favors the Kyoto Protocol
· You believe in the drug war
· You believe public education is less effective and more expensive than turning education over to market-based capitalists
· You believe Jesus was a market-based capitalist
· You believe segregation can create schools that are both separate and equal
· You believe there is no segregation anyway
· You believe all people who disagree with you are Pinko Commie Liberals

After taking this test, if you answered “AMEN!” to more than three of the above list, you could be a closet Dubya supporter. But don’t despair. There is a place for you in the New World Order. You could be well on your way to a top job in the housecleaning or food service industries (about the only jobs they haven’t yet figured out how to ship overseas).
But, I comfort myself with the knowledge that it was all a dream. There is absolutely no way Dubya could ever beat John Kerry in a fair fight

I got one

"You believe guns don’t kill people, people kill people, but deny that people with guns kill more people"

The first part is true.But the second part is not the whole story.

I also dont deny the fact that smokers and drunk drivers kill more people then guns ever do. And if anyone believes that someone that kills another person wouldnt have done it if they didnt have a gun is


I must be a redneck oh wait a Dubya supporter

Very funny.

If people don't laugh at this, then they are taking things entirely too seriously.

MAN, people are funny material no matter their beliefs.

"There is absolutely no way Dubya could ever beat John Kerry in a fair fight"

America was f***d, and people are too lazy to get after it or too partisan to be American and take W's deliverance as valid.

But hey, I'm sure I'll be called everything from a Liberal sour grapes masher to worse. So be it - I'll take solace in the W taxs breaks that I don't need & make sure to hire cleaning staff that are devout Republicans.....just for the sheer shadenfreude!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's people that don't read opposing viewpoints that are the most dangerous in this world.

Some points and counter-points:

· You watch Fox news as your only source of information.

Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox, is one of the largest media owners globally. Every morning a mass broadcast goes out to all bureaus telling them what and how to report for that day. That is not news. It's conjecture, opinion, and propaganda, despite the fact you may agree with most of it. News is supposed to be objective. Internally, Fox is open about being biased besides the "Fair and Balanced" line you see all the time. Before you respond, I've read "Bias" by Bernie Goldberg so I know the counter argument.

· You believe the majority of the rest of the world is staunchly behind Dubya

Regardless, the world oil economy is based upon the American dollar. Every nation on Earth has to maintain a stock of our money to purchase oil on the global market. There is a fight going on right now (had you done your research, you'd know about it) to get that switched to the Euro-dollar, led by France and Germany. If you think thumbing our nose or flipping the bird to them won't result in the eventual downfall of the dollar, you're nuts. By the way, one of our good allies, Spain, has a 10% approval rating of Bush. Yeah, I know. "I don't care!" Well, when they get pissed off enough to switch to the Euro dollar and our economy gets sqeezed, shut your mouth. We tried to warn you.

· You think dissent is unpatriotic and unAmerican

Three words: Boston Tea Party. "History does not repeat itself. Ignorant people repeat history." Learn it, or shut up.

· You believe the 9/11 commission said the administration had no warning whatsoever that someone might attack on American soil

Yes, Bill Clinton had warning too. But in 2000 the CIA had an Middle Eastern man from Afghanistan on the payroll. They paid him $115,000 for about 12 months of work. During that time, he coordinated mtgs between the US Consulate under Clinton and the Taliban at hotels in Germany. During that time, the Taliban called Bin Laden a "damn liability" and wanted to hand him over. With the election coming, they passed the buck to Bush. This administration sent three letters to him over a course of months saying their National Security team was taking shape and to hold off on the handover. They waited too long. The running joke in the Taliban was, "If they need fuel for the cruise missles, they'd buy it." Then in mid-Sept 01 they sent a letter telling this man to inform the Taliban the deal had changed: Surrender or die. He refused because of their lack of concern over the previous months. The war started shortly thereafter. So don't pull the Clinton card anymore. Bush had an even greater chance that he blew.

· You believe that we found WMDs in Iraq

Bush said later he'd do it all over again even knowing what he know's now. That's criminal, stubborn, and completely asinine. So he'd let 1,000 kids and 10,000 civilians die all over again? That's a good Christian? Jesus said, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:44.

· You believe you can liberate people by killing them

10,000+ Iraqi non-insurgent citizens dead. "Collateral damage." "War is hell." And you think that by doing this we're making a lot of friends over there? You're naive and nuts. Jesus said, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:44. So don't you dare stand on the New Testament and claim the name of Jesus while throwing your full support behind a man that claims he's a good Christian but is nowhere near this precious Bible verse. To the contrary, he said he'd do it all over again. That right there is Satanic in nature. Fools.

· You believe national health insurance is a good idea for Iraq, but a bad idea for America

That's right, over there it's democracy. Over here it's socialism. Can't have it both ways, Jack.

· You believe modulating your opinions in the face of new evidence is "flip-flopping"

An infamous college football player early in the 20th century picked up the ball and ran for a touchdown and scored. Thought he was doing the right thing. But he ran the wrong way and scored for the other team. Never mix "resolve" and "steadfastness" as necessarily the truth. The true mark of a Christian is someone who can see the error in their ways, seek forgiveness, and do what they can to avoid that mistake again. See the next one:

· You believe standing your ground even when the evidence is against you is being consistent and strong

Enough said about that. "History does not repeat itself, ignorant people repeat history."

· You believe criminalizing abortion will make it go away

Sorry, folks, it won't. It's too deep in America right now and too hot a topic. "Judge not, lest you be judged." I don't believe in it either, but it's not our duty as Christians to take away free will. But it is every person's job to stand in front of God one day and explain away their own actions. Furthermore, I just heard on the news last night that this topic is highly unlikely to change anytime soon. Congratulations, you ignored our economy and position in the world for an unfortunate and morally wrong topic that's not likely to change. Thanks.

· You believe sending American jobs overseas is actually creating more American jobs

Don't ever complain about this topic again. The Bush Administration has gone on record saying they support sending jobs overseas. Look it up on the Internet, you'll find it. But then again, you probably should've done that before November 2nd.

· You believe the founding fathers were bible-beating fundamentalists who intended the country to be run by the Christian church

Yes, more than half of the Signers had seminary degrees. But they knew first-hand what religious persecution felt like. So despite their personal feelings and the use of "God the Creator" in the Constitution, they laid it out to allow for a society in which the gov't favors none in particular. If you are in favor of the counter-argument, you have nothing more than the Christian version of an Iranian theocracy. "History does not repeat itself, ignorant people repeat history."

· You believe America is God's chosen country

Jesus said in Matthew 22, verse 21 "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." In other words, pay your taxes to your government. So the government is the government, but God is not the government, even according to Jesus Christ. God is God. So those people that try to shove these issues down the throats of others are falling into the very trap the Pharisees were trying to set for Jesus. God is God. God is not the government. The people are the government. And not all the people believe in God. It is the job of those that do to convince those that don't. It is NOT the job of those that do to surround those that don't with symbols they don't believe in and say to them, "Too bad, you live in OUR world." That is not being a good Christian.

· You believe Jesus was a market-based capitalist

See above.

· You believe all people who disagree with you are Pinko Commie Liberals

Yes, some are. But many, like myself, are well-educated on both sides of the issue. Most Fox News watchers and Bill O'Reilly fans just change the channel or fluff off the opposition as crap. Many of their arguments are Constitutionally based, something the Patriot Act has tried so hard to rid itself of. Don't believe me, read it yourself. "History does not repeat itself, stupid people repeat history."

And another one: "You don't believe in the UN, but you think we had to invade Iraq to enforce UN resolutions."

Thought you didn't believe in it? Can't have it both ways.

Bottom line: Despite failures in the economy, an "open" border with Mexico, taxes, international politics, intelligence, domestic over-spending, our status as "world police", restricting domestic freedoms, cut backs on veteran's healthcare, underfunding homeland security, underfunding education, and setting Islamic hatred for us on fire (all of the things that make this ball spin with relative functionality)....you voted for abortion, gay marriage, and stem-cell research. Congratulations. Way to be on top of the issues.

I don't believe in much of what the Democrats believe either. But it certainly won't stop Al Qaeda from recruiting en masse because of our crusade. So what you should do is march your sons and daughters to your local recruitment office and proudly give your sacrifice along with everyone else since you obviously don't care enough about their lives. Don't cry anymore about lost soldiers or say you support their effort. I chose to support them by voting for a person that would make an attempt to finish this job by employing more foreign troops and that has no ambitions to start something with Iraq or North Korea.

"History does not repeat itself, ignorant people repeat history."

Holy sh*t!!! That was nice thirddensity,you only repeated yourself once.

There are however alot of generalizations there. It was very well written, and there are some points about Republicans that should be addressed, as all of us are not homo-hating,rednecks from the south...so here you go

1. I do not watch Fox for my news

2. I know the majority of the world is not with us, but my streets are safe and I live in America, not LIberia (thank god)

3. I believe change can come through dissent- The Boston Tea Party could be known as the first terrorist act in North America..

4. I know the storyabout OBL, and feel that Clinton should have taken care of it at the end of his term, rather than releasing a bunch of convicts for cash.(remeber that anybody?)


5. I beleive that there are WMD's in the region, and if we need to start in Iraq, so be it. Hopefully It will keep terrorsits from my shores with the threat of my military.

6. War is hell, death is ineveitable in any conflict. Remember, we bombed the hell out of Iraq all through the 90's so it is nothing new to be blamed on just the current administration

7. National helath insurance is something we cannot afford as a country. I have excellent heatlh care. What is the problem?

8. Changing ones opinion as they grow older and wiser is one thing, changing with the political wind is another.

9. I voted Republican, but I am pro-choice, go figure????

10. I do not pledge my allegiance to Jesus, but to my country, and everyone has the right to freely express their religion in school, malls, parks, and work.

11. people who disagree with me are not pinko liberal commies, they are good conversation


12. Economy is on the rise, you will see gas drop about 30 cents in the next 6 months. Companies are in the black again and hiring is up, and outsopurcing is turning into a bad idea for alot of tech companies and they are coming home.

As a country we are far from perfect, but remember, we are Americans. We stood united on 9/12, and we need to get back to that mindset. We need to save our communities, not the planet.

There's no such thing as a "drug war" research the CIA/Drug Trafficking Connections. Then come back to me.

Oh, okay. I know exactly what you mean then. Yes, I know the connections on the CIA/Drug Trafficiking. It's all used to support the U.S. economy and sell the drugs on the streets more or less. So the war on drugs is an excuse.
