Dumbed Down America and Voters: Look No Further Than The GOP

GOP Platform at Various Times

He must have heard it on FOX 

Q:  Is the United States a “Christian nation,” that the GOP side advocates constantly?

A:  If so and if anyone honestly believes that, then the Founding Fathers forgot to mention that little part.

The truth of the matter is that conservatives don’t want to live in a nation based on liberty and freedom – they want to live in a theocracy.  They want a nation and government based on religion – theirs and no one else’s. If that is what they want then they need to get the hell out of the United States, because we are a nation based on any form of any theocracy.  

The Founding Fathers made all that perfectly clear when they wrote the First Amendment specifically, if one wants to practice whatever religion they want or believe in (or none at all), even in the privacy of their home or church, then by all means go right ahead. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to force their narrow-minded religious beliefs on those who don’t agree with theirs – that is our system.

  • Abortion?  Well, we disagree with it, so we can try to violate the constitutionally protected right a woman has over her own body. 
  • The Affordable Care Act?  Well, we disagree with it, so it’s okay to try and ignore that constitutionally upheld law.
  • Religion in public school?  Well, we think our country was founded on Christianity (even though the word Christianity doesn’t appear even once in our Constitution), so it’s okay to ignore the First Amendment and force religion (as long as it’s the Christian religion) into our public schools.
  • Freedom for all?  Well, not if you’re homosexual.  Then we’ll continue to violate the First Amendment by supporting laws that define marriage as between a man and a woman.  A belief that’s based on the Christian Bible — a belief of which millions of Christians don’t even support. 
  • Conservatives don’t like that minorities often don’t vote for their party, so it’s acceptable to try and change our Fourteenth Amendment and the Constitutional definition of what constitutes an American citizen. 
  • Certain demographics don’t vote for us, so let’s find ways to make it harder for them to vote. Similar to poll taxes or tests once used to discourage certain voters from voting. 
  • The only amendment they really defend without question is the Second Amendment, even as they ignore the entire first half of it and only focus on the last part.
They love what I call: “We pick and choose the rights” that they cherish for themselves while trampling on the same rights that apply to all of us.

And, as always thanks for stopping by.
