The New Republican Party
Take a step back and look at where we are as a country, today. Torture! Just imagine that for a minute.
We have gone from being the country of the higher moral ground. We used to look down our noses at third world countries and torture centers like the old Soviet Empire, Somalia, or Pakistan because of torture. Now we not only endorse it from the top (George Bush) on down but endlessly condone it.
What has happened to our country and our morals? I’ll tell you what. Republicans. A better question to ask is, “What has Become of the Republican Party?”
It’s so hard to even imagine that an American political party would actively condone torture. The Republican Party is still excusing John Yoo for recommending that we crush the testicles of children in order to torture their parents. Is this still America?
America doesn’t support torture but they are listening to the Republicans tell us all the reasons why we should throw away our morals and just do it. It’s a Republican thing, nothing more. Listen to the Republicans and you would think that, like them, America was nothing but a bunch of ineffective third world thugs that can only get what they want by killing and destroying people.
But we don’t just stop there. The Republican Party is committed to opposing each and every thing that the Democratic Party pursues.
Again, let’s stop and think about that for a moment.
The Republican Party opposes everything that the MAJORITY of Americans want. Remember? America evicted the Republican lies two election cycles in a row and are probably going to abandon them in record numbers in the coming elections as well. And, it’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned. There is no room in American discourse for torture or obstructionism.
If a political party is so far out of step with America and so very stuck in lock step like the Nazi Brown Shirts that they will oppose everything the majority want, they are relegated to the dust bins of history. Good riddance, torturers. You’re not what America stands for!
