And the stuff I keep hearing come out of male Republican mouths (thankfully, a relative few) is pure stupidity.
I would think most moderate Republicans would want to distance themselves from these guys, not defend them.
Good one! :-D
Of course they will defend them, especially if they think the same way. There will be some "moderates" who will disguise their true intentions by focusing on the money factor of abortion. That being that the government should not be paying for abortions, the pill, etc. I probably agree with much of that.
But reality is, the right, to include most of the religious right, will not distance themselves from bumbling idiots campaigning on discussions of "rape babies" and other somewhat questionable stances. They can not distance themselves because deep down they agree with these stances. It is from a religious basis. It can not be "half way".
And yes, as stated by so many on the right, from Glen Beck to Rush and everyone in between, they keep suggesting that the country is turning, while stuffing millions into their pockets from those who want it to be true. But elections do have consequences. Women flee the right everytime one of the anti-abortion talking politicians opens their mouths.
I find it ironic when the side that is against abortion loses an election, then suggests that the majority is on their side. Yes, a majority of immigrants is on your side also. A majority of minorities is on your side also. You keep clicking your heels and saying it enough times, while pointing your fingers at gays, abortion, immigrants, minorities, women, and about every other group....while thinking you are winning.
Do you really think the right is about smaller government? Do you really think that the right will lower the debt? Do you really think they are any better at running the government?
It does not matter whether you said yes or no. Because the true intent of the right is about being moral police, and coming into your home to tell you what to do, just as much as they complain about the left.
For the record, I am actually against abortion. But I do not look to politicians to force my views upon others if they are so elected by my vote. Some things must be decided by each individual. I actually favor the right. But I know as long as they put people who want to talk about rape babies, "praying away gay", and throwing out 20 million immigrants as if none of them have done anything worth considered worthy for our society, I see the right as being on the losing end for the foreseeable future.
Honestly, I wonder if they could, just how self-rightious, and limiting would the right be if they could do everything they would want. As in the case of the prisoners and guards in the study years ago, where the guards took things to the extreme, I also wonder how far the right would go knowing their religious ideology and their willingness to demand for others to abide by their requirements.
But fear not. I do not think that will happen anytime soon. And because the right is more concerned about abortion, gays, and being the moral police, we have an idiot from the left in power. So now we stand back and complain about the country. We stand back and say thing about debt, taxes, unemployment, and security.
But the "right" really wants to talk about gays and abortion. A real shame. And so we have what we have. And we all will suffer for years to come.
Socialists on one side, the moral police on the other. And the country doomed because of it. Each side pointing fingers at each other.
Oh well......... :roll:
