Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch

Why I am Kind of in Awe of the Republican Party.

Yeah, funny thing about the Constitution, we can read it for ourselves.

Because I don’t know how they manage to get their base to vote against their own best interests so consistently.

I’m not being facetious, or snotty.  I’m serious.

The base vote of the Rebublican Party is poor, white people.  Yet, the Republican Party works steadily to erode any chance these folks have of clawing their way out of poverty, while dangling the promise of the bootstraps ideology in front of them.  So, in essence, keeping them poor while telling them it’s their own damn fault and if they’d try just a little harder, they could be rich like the sociopaths they keep voting into office.  Oh, and let’s not forget, reinforcing the worst traits of human nature regarding “us -v- them.”  They keep ginning up the idea of “you could be something if those filthy brown people/slutty women/uppity faggots weren’t stealing your jobs/education/health care/marriage…”

Ok, so it’s really not that big a mystery.  The Republican Party preys and capitalizes on all the worst parts of human nature.

And they’ve ginned up anti-intellectualism so that when the rest of us point out, “Hey, actually, these Republican dickheads are lying to you!” all we get in return is “Nuh-uh!”

They wrap themselves in the Constitution while trying to destroy it.  They appeal to patriotism, while defunding our vets and the families of our soldiers.

And until recently, the Democratic party’s been too concerned with playing nice to call them on their bold face lies.

We need to stop doing that.

I swear, I’m going to start carrying a copy of the Constitution around with me to bludgeon these lying and/or deluded fools with when they misquote or lie about it.

The time for niceties is over.

Fight back.  Fight hard.
