All Those Damn Liberals…..

August 28, 2013

LiberalThe liberal media would have you believe that there’s nobody that looks like the people on this stage that have an R behind their name. And that’s just not the case,” said Oklahoma’s Shannon, who suggested that the party should stress its belief in limited government and personal responsibility, two values that he learned from his local African-American church.

Agness, the founder and president of the Network of Enlightened Women, argued that the GOP would benefit by tackling the problem of liberal bias in universities…..

Here I am poking fun at Republicans, when will I ever learn.

If you are politically inclined now is the time to move into the Republican party. Especially if you are a woman, African American, Hispanic, Gay, or anything other than old white men.  They are searching high and wide for anyone in those categories who shows even the least inclination to being a “leader”.  Just look at people like J.C Watts or Sarah Palin. In the Democratic party they would be nothing more than the middle of the group but as Republicans they were stars. One came via being a famous football star. The other being a beauty queen.  And of course we all know about that “B” movie actor.

I love the way they say they are trying to re-brand but continue with the same old rhetoric. “All those liberals out to get them” has been and continues to be their mantra during most of my lifetime.  They want to continue their hyper-principles when it comes to:

    • anti-immigration,
    • anti-gays,
    • anti-humanist,
    • anti-environmentalist,
    • anti- global warming,
    • anti-healthcare for all,
    • anti-this,
    • anti-that,

But at the same time they want to convince you that they have changed. They continue to blame all those  “liberals” for their problems.  If only those L’s  didn’t control our colleges, our media, and almost everything else in life the R’s would not be so misunderstood. They continue to blame everyone except themselves.

The big thing right now is defunding Obamacare. They say they are not against poor people having healthcare and that after they take it away from them by defunding Obamacare, somewhere down the road they might look at giving it back to them.  Somewhere down the road??? I would like at least one my conservative friends to tell me exactly what is it about Obamacare the frightens them so much? Are they afraid that once it is implemented it just might become as popular as Medicare which is even a truer single payer system?

Many of the base of the Republican party we are told are old white men. That fact seemed pretty obvious when I looked over the crowd at their 2012 convention.  With all those old white men are so much against Obamacare surely some of them opted out of Medicare?  But, strangely I have not found a single case of that happening. Even among the most radical of my senior friends.

I don’t want to be seen as totally partisan so I will soon be giving equal treatment to the Democratic party….

    How do you feel about the war drum beating with Syria? Surprised you haven’t hit that lately???
    I have voted both parties and several third parties. I try to actually look at the person and see what they have done that can enhance my idea of country.

    I just don’t think any party is “black and white”. You stated that you voted pretty Democrat in the past- but you are not for abortion in all cases (open abortion was in the platform). I know many Republicans who are ecologically minded and want to have controlled immigration- same with Democrats. I don’t see anti gay on the R party platform- only marriage between a man and a woman (which Obama ran on as well). Civil union has always been acceptable. Heck, Dick Chenney’s daughter is gay.

    Not sure how the country will run with many parties – as most European countries do it. At least we might get something done if coalition is key to staying in power….
    Parties are pretty confusing- aren’t they? Two parties for 300 million people. Republics are messy.

      Hello again Janette. Syria is a civil war; should other countries be involved in it? I don’t know. Should the USA as usual go in alone and “solve” the problem. Not possible but we will like try again as usual..

      Yes there is variety on both parties. I will give you that. But I stick to my claim as to how the “base” of each party acts. Don’t see any anti-gay in Republican rallies? Just look at the tea party radicals for some of that. I am falling in line with the fact that some people are “gay” and can’t do much about it.

      Democrats, yeah I got plenty to say about them later. Won’t do that now.

      I think it is time for this country to have a strong 3rd and maybe even 4th party. As you say it would dictate coalitions. That may be the only way we will ever get anything done going forward.
