just another continued rant on citizenship … from 2013
I thought Republicans had finally grown up and swept the birther issue under a rug somewhere safe. That seems to have lasted for only about two Romney flip-flops. It is apparent that Tony Perkins, president of the Family Res Council, Republican members of Congress and Governors continue to tell Americans that birtherism, the War on Women and their Rights to… (You fill it in), are without a doubt much more important than their constituents. I would be happy to see Republicans in Congress, actually do the people’s business, as the current group works for 190days or less and has passed bills that hurt ALL Americans. Yet, despite everything the Republicans have done, our economy is on the mend. Thanks to President Obama Our slow economic recovery is happening without austerity measures though all the filibustering Mitch McConnell and his comrades continue to engage in against progress; austerity was and still is the word and mission of the new Republican nationalists. While some Americans, seemingly had the wool pulled over their eyes continually. The ugly truth began to leak out at town hall meetings and finally a smidge of buyer’s remorse set in as actual plans received a 2nd look and was rejected, but now with the 115th congress this path to economic prosperity still deserves a whole lot of scrutiny from ALL voters because once implemented it looks like only the 1-3% will be happy.
In between all the confusing economy noise, the Republican Party continues to reach new lows in desperate behavior. While birtherism on its face is funny at times because who really takes this stuff serious …right. Nevertheless, the topic, subject … stupid things conjured up through ideology continues to be added to the conservative conversation and list of ‘Religious Conscience’ though some call it religious instinct. With severe conservatives, we all should wonder if religion, consciousness, or instinct should be allowed in the same sentence let alone our own – conscious thought, considering what Policies the current group of white nationalists will be throwing at Americans prepare repair get your marching shoes. The War on women, immigration, workers, minorities, students, voter rights and religious freedom are Republican issues. The slap of reality, or the rude awakening is … with so many states trying or passing strict negative conservative legislation against the middle and lower class cloaked in big bright new ideas on that path to prosperity that representatives and speaker Paul Ryan is still pushing has now become a trifecta reality that they intend to use or as some feel an abuse and misuse of power.
The political Party of NO, the Republican Party of the 21st Century is no longer our parent’s conservative party.
We all have to know; that the path conservatives want us all on could destroy our democracy.
I will admit, I usually consider any conservative pledge laughable -until that ” Purity Pledge” from a group named N.O.M. popped up. Common sense if any available, tells you that a pledge to hurt others or exclude them is beyond offensive right, yet, it got signed by all the socially conservative candidates for President. It says to, among other things commit to practicing exclusion and lest we pay attention to their choice of words “purity.” This thing, written long before trump took office, is not only archaic but this extremely conservative organization wants, “Signers to pledge: never to engage in pre-marital sex or extramarital affairs, end all viewing of pornography and gambling, never to marry a person of the same gender, and never to “favor any government action that would allow for civil unions of people of the same sex”. I don’t know if all Republicans agree with this purity pledge, we all know that a whole lot have been reported charged or resigned from congress… are failing the Norquist pledge. And that “family values platform” which also covers birther issues no less, suffice it to say that conservatives behaving badly and that cliché, “do as I say not as I do; comes to mind as most if all are not that pure, if you get my drift. If you believe in social conservatism you will be voting against your own best interest in any election and likely controlled by extreme right policies and that is sad.
The commonality between birthers, birthrights citizenship certainly has to be economy, and austerity or the lack of it or any of the combinations out there …believe this … the latest comments coming from social conservatives are code for and against “the other”. It should make us all stop and reassess not only the beliefs of these conservatives voted into positions of power and Public Service but we must all challenge them, their oath, and the public servants they profess to be. We all know this group has managed to get away with attacking women, gays, the undocumented and minorities with legislation that will has disenfranchised them in some way. We must remember the past like when voters crossed into Blunt territory – pun intended and luckily, blunt was put out. I wonder if anyone else wonders or imagines how often these fools must meet plan and cover each other on the local state and federal level. Republicans used to decry they want smaller Government yet their current legislation policies include controlling half the population while enjoying enormous tax breaks… again, remember the house of bush and what happened when he gave friends tax breaks? It bares reminding that anything done to one part of our system effects another…our system is interlocked thus anything done adversely affecting our economy’s has a great chance of forcing us into austerity
In the fight for election 2016, it was not clear to all what trump stood for, but as the weeks and months passed it was obvious that you only needed to wait until 3am …because it could change. I’m what a call a progressive dem, I have a different understanding a potus that give regular nasty speech with trump, smacking his lips, slurring his words and spewing a whole lot of inaccurate statements to his audience about Real Americans and has done much nothing but flip flop toward the 1% since Jan.20. I don’t know if Trump will do two terms but given all his babbling …his comments on Race, Gender, the poor or low income and Immigrants should not be ignored or forgotten at the Voting Booth
The sole mission of this Republican Party of No – is to turn back the clock …It is beyond offensive and will affect all our families past present and future
