I will never vote Republican because…

… even if they started coming up with sane, rational economic policies, I can’t get over their stance on social issues. I don’t know how you can talk about what a good Christian you are when you want to stop helping the poor, treat homosexuals like subhumans, and try to suppress the voice and the vote of minorities.  


Pretty sick of being trolled on Twitter and receiving tweets containing 18 hashtags, too many capital letters, and not enough punctuation, all implying that the single agenda of the Democratic Party is to hand out welfare and money. It’s pretty much the standard, go to argument from people who don’t really know much else about either party’s platform. Do your research about Medicaid, which states actually receive most of the handouts that your party pretends to be so against, the amount of tax dollars lost from hidden accounts and loopholes. Befriend a gay couple and some black people and stop hiding behind the Bible and Jesus. Taking welfare away from the needy and treating homosexuals, minorities, and women like second class citizens isn’t what He’d want you to do anyway. 

“Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for the laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks on the government-provided sidewalk to subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor. Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.”


A Day in the Life of a Republican, excellent reading.
