As you know, many (REAL) Republicans voted for President Obama. When asked what went wrong, most Tea Partiers are saying “It wasn’t the message, it was the way it was delivered”. Let me give you a subtle hint…..WRONG! What you were offering was not even close to Conservative. It would have been the biggest government in the history of the world.
Privatization of important government functions ala Herbert Hoover which led us straight into the great depression. Sending immigrants born and raised here to their parents homeland? Virtually legalizing rape so you can criminalize abortion? Feeling the adrenaline run of old white men sending young men overseas to die for whatever reason? Policing everyone’s bedroom to make sure they were behaving? (I imagine behaving means “anything but what our own Republican Patreaus does”). Making certain gays did not get equal rights to the rest of us. You get an A+ on delivery. We heard everything perfectly. The message was what killed you. It was/is dismal. Do you have any idea how big a government that is? Even an inkling? And how horrendous it would make our country in all the rest of the world’s eyes? A government like that is like “Stalinism on Steroids”; so much larger and every bit as evil as Stalin’s Soviet Union its uncanny. And you think it was the way the message was delivered.
Might want to get back to Karl and Grover on that one. They led you astray with that too; not to mention taking all your money with guarantees of a grand victory. You’re not mad at me. If you have any sense at all you’re mad at them and the fringe right of your “party”. THEY brought you down. Not Obama, not me, not anyone but them. Look within when something is that very wrong. It can be fixed, but anger is a luxury you can’t afford (unless it is directed properly and released) so you can move on from it.
The people have spoken. We do not want America to go back to the dark ages. We do not like abortion, but we also are educated enough to know that the pro-life movement is so archaic, it causes millions of more abortions than it prevents. They have become the party of “More Abortions And Dangerous Ones”. The pro-choice movement has become the party of less abortions, much less, in medical environments and prevention using contraceptives, education, and family planning.
We don’t want your message. Rewrite it, edit it, sugar coat it, make it even seem sane (if that is possible). We don’t want it. If its good for you. Live it. Exchange those values in your religious institution. You are not converting us or anyone else via government. That is a theocracy, and that is why we have gone to war for years……to fight theocracies due to how evil they are. In just religion, these ideas are benign and fine. They are for you. They are not for you to impose upon us, any more than I would impose my beliefs upon you. Make sense? And I am a strong believer in G-d and I have much faith. But if you don’t that is fine with me. In fact I demand it. Be you, because that’s all you can be. If you start being me, then you’ve lost you.
America wants Planned Parenthood as it saves lives. We don’t want a theocracy. Really. If the die-hard Tea Partyers want a theocracy, find a place and form one and “Theoc away to your heart’s content”. We’ve seen your little power game and have no interests. America is a melting pot of all races, creeds, religions etc and before long, all of us will have equal rights (in spite of you).
You can join us (far right) but you have got to learn to behave. You don’t set the rules. America does. And lately, you’ve proven you do not want to play by America’s rules (the Constitution). If they bother you that much, I bet anything we could talk an airline into offering free one way tickets to ANYWHERE you’d like to go. Because if you try this again, (Block & Blame: What your Congresspersons did to Obama), you will see your party so voted out, you will try to remember the name of it. Really. Don’t get mad at me. I’m just listening to the word on the street and passing the word. Now lets go be Americans or lets bid each other farewell.
