Those who align themselves with the American right are a strange group of folks.
While the right chooses to cut money for education, many who vote Republican think of themselves as being part of the American middle class and agree with the notion that a college degree leads the way to prosperity.
If that is true, why would those same people vote for a Republican when that Republican wants to slash investment in people and make it impossible for the poor to afford a college education (especially when the last four-to-eight years of education should cost the same as the first twelve years of education!)?
Those who align themselves with the right in America oppose unemployment benefits. They also oppose civil rights laws which help past victims of discrimination become gainfully employed so that they can contribute to American society rather than "leech off of the government."
You cannot have it both ways-unless you are a corporation who is moving assembly operations to Mexico or China, of course!
Those who align themselves with the right in this country oppose birth control for minors and want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, yet George W. Bush helped a girlfriend get an abortion three years before abortion was legalized in the United States. What's more, will someone ask Sarah Palin to take responsibility for her failure in seeing to it that Bristol remained a virgin until marriage?
Those on the right complain about the fall of the American family, yet both of George W. Bush's daughters were substance abusers while he occupied the White House!
And then, there is the issue of Dick Cheney's daughter and Newt Gingrich's sister! Hell! Newt Gingrich's divorces are a topic for discussion all by themselves! Don't even feed me that bullcrap about how the Republican Party is pro-family, as anyone who believes that lie truly is blind by choice!
Those on the American right have a strange obscession with sex. They openly display their hatred homosexuals whenever there is a gay pride parade, but fail to recognize the Log Cabin Republicans as their own. They oppose distribution of birth control in the schools, yet their own children are as likely to wind up becoming parents prior to marriage. Then again, what about their trips to sex clubs in West Hollywood?
Explain Mark Foley, among others.
Why would a bigot from the Republican side of the California State Senate by the name of Roy Ashburn choose to come out of the closet while the cops slap the cuffs on him for driving drunk?
Maybe Ashburn was being aroused by the feeling of the cold steel as it loving embraced his willing wrists and decided he should proposition one of the officers. I don't know. Then again, if a female slapped the cuffs on him, the circumstances of Ashburn's coming out make even less sense.
Explain Larry Craig's antics in the men's room at the airport. How convenient of him to decide to run away to rehab afterwards!
Chairman Steele are you listening?
Furthermore, explain J. Edgar Hoover, who declared homosexuals to be deviant. Explain Hoover's dresses!
Those on the American right love to censor what they think is too sexually explicit or too violent, but want to force the Holy Bible upon every child in public school. What are they going to do with the Song of Solomon-rip out the pages?
Those on the American right complain that the Democrats are weak on security, but it was a Republican who allowed Osama bin Ladin to attack the United States and it was a Republican who let him escape the caves at Tora Bora. It was also a Republican who traded arms for hostages and trained the very terrorist who attacked us.
Meanwhile, it was Democrats who won two World Wars and the war in the Balkans. What's more, World War II might not have happened if the American people supported President Wilson in his attempt to admit the United States into the League of Nations. While those on the right talk about peace through strength, they have never displayed the courage to use the nuclear option-not once.
Had George W. Bush used the nuclear option in Afghanistan, there would be no discussion of Bin Ladin's whereabouts. He was simply too much of a coward to do it. What a pussy-especially when you consider the fact that Bush went AWOL in 1970! Then again, just look at his face when Andrew Card informed him of the September 11 attacks. Instead of excusing himself and getting down to business, he sat there like a bafoon and returned to the book he was attempting to read from.
I don't suppose Barabara Bush used the phonics method back when Georgie had a silver sucker in his mouth. Oh, well.
Those on the right talk about personal responsibility, but has Laura Bush served time in prison for what she did in 1963?
These are a very strange group of hypocrites who seek to return to power in order that they might ruin this nation. The only question is why.
If those on the right proclaim that the United States is the world's last best hope, why do they hate the same?
Why do they want to deprive American students of the tools they need to compete against students from around the world?
If their assertion that more money does not make a better student, why do they want to waste another dime on a military who supposedly cannot locate the whereabouts of Osama Bin Ladin when we have spy satellites which can take a picture of your license plate?
Why do they want weaken American industry?
Why don't they admit that John McCain was born in Panama?
Why do they trade American arms with known enemies, like Iran?
Why did George W. Bush forgive Libya?
Why do they make alliances with oil thugs?
Why do they hold hands with Saudi royalty? It must be part of that strange obsession they have which I addressed earlier!
Maybe their being strange isn't the problem. Maybe those on the American right are just outright hypocrites who only think about themselves.
Oh, yeah! One more thing-what is it about Christine O' Donnell?
