Subject: [Enronscam] Is it time to put the republican Party to sleep?
8/30/2012 G.O.P. on Life Support Machines! Watching the
GOP convention is kind of sad. Listening to one paean after another,
rally for Free Enterprise was a lot like hearing testimony from members
of the Amway Corporation. This was what the new wave band, Devo, was
satirizing in the 70's: pure evidence of devolution in the USA. All
of the speakers' igneous rhetoric fell flat on its ass, coming from
the podium. This begs the question: If the Republican Party is so
individualistic, then why do its members resemble robots in Halloween
costumes? Individualism does mean collective stupidity. Sorry! Plus,
repeating talking points is extremely collective! Now,
here's another analogy! Nomake that two analogies. The first:
The Republican Party is like an abandoned building, where various
squatters have taken over. In one room, you have your Protestant
fundamentalist Christian crackpots. In another, your
Libertarian/Conservative dingbats. In the penthouse, you have your rich
corporations. In the basement, old Militia members, Neo-Nazis,
skinheads, Patriots, and Nationalists! Sleeping in the garage are a
few Tea Party members. So who really owns the building? Nobody really
knows! The second: The Republican Party is Terri Schiavo.
The party has been dead since 2007. Political schism has taken hold of
the corpse. Can the oil companies save the decaying party? Year after
year, the party has been on life support machines. The party would
benefit from the Affordable Heath Care Act, referred to in Right wing
circles as "Obama Care." If they rely on free market medicine,
then they will spend billions upon billions of dollars, just to keep
those machines working. Any logical human being would employ political
Euthanasia. "Calling Jack Kevorkian! Calling Dr. Kevorkian! You
are needed in Washington!" Is this party worth saving?
So whom can we blame for this factionalism? Is it a Communist plot out
of Red China? No! It was started by the Neo-cons during the Bush
administration. The definition of "Conservative" has gotten more
convoluted over the years. All of its different ideologies clash with
one another. Ayn Rand's beliefs contradict with those of
Christianity. Not only did she advocate "Godless Capitalism,"
she was pro-abortion! Plus, she was opposed to sacrifice! The GOP
worships soldiers sacrificing their lives for the Republic! They have a
military fetish, plus they love U.S. imperialism! So, what
happens when you mix Nationalism, Libertarianism, Christianity and
Capitalism? Answer: You get political vomit! In order for the GOP to
survive, they need to find an ideology and stick to it!
When the Republican Party finally dies, the two-party system will not
die! Another right wing party will take its place! What party will it
be? It might be the Libertarian Partythey have been in a coma
since 1972. Maybe this is their time? How about the Constitution Party?
Nahthey are too John Bitchy for the general public. The American
Independent could make a come backthey love that "States
Rights" crap! Will somebody pull the plug on the
Republic Party? Let them die in dignity!
