As I watch the news on a daily basis, which I have become somewhat addicted to since 9/11, I can't help but to sit back and wish that I was rich. I don't have to be Bill Gates or Donald Trump rich. I just wish I was rich enough to start my own NEW political party. Why you may ask? Because I am absolutely embarassed to consider myself a Democrat, and totally against the majority of the philosophies of the Republicans. Now days, if you're not for one, then you're automatically considered to be a follower of the other. I, and I am growing to learn, many, many others do not fall into either of these two political categories. Sure, you say well, there's the Independent or the Green parties. Frankly, they both seemed a bit weird to me. I definitely could not follow them. So let's look at what we have.
We have the Republicans: A politically savvy group of people who seem to be very power hungry. A group whose primary desire seems to be to take over everything. Seems to derives from a very pompous egotistical attitude that they are the greatest and most intellectually inclined...and everyone else is not only beneath them, but less intelligent, less intellectual, even less patriotic (they're so savvy that they strategically make you think that if you're against them, then you're against America). The Republicans seem to be a party filled with inner contradiction. On one side, they are super pro-life. At the same time, they're super pro-war! How is that mentally possible. How can a person's mind and heart care about life so deeply that they will do everything thinkable to protect the embryo, (which I commend that desire) but at the same time, be so willing and eager to send our young men and women (other people's sons and daughters) to war to possibly be killed, tortured, at least mamed and their lives destroyed. Are they emphatic about saving the embryo so they can raise up a new army 18 years from now to fight in Iraq? (We'll probably still be there). It's weird.
The Republicans seem to be a party made up of liars, conivers, schemers and law breakers. They'll lie to accomplish whatever their goal is at the time. And then, even after it's proven to be a lie, Republican followers go on with an 'ahhh...it's still ok' attitude. It's weird. The Republicans seem to care only about the rich, the Haliburtons, the opportunity to make their super rich base just richer. They are commited to everything except the concerns of the middle and lower class citizens of America. It actually feels like they are systematically doing little things to smother out the middle class. As if they want this country to be a two class system. The rich and the poor. It's weird. It seems like a lot of the Republican citizens in the middle and lower economic status have been strong supporters of the party and followers of the lies for one main reason. FEAR! The devistation of 9/11 shook up our entire country. Some folks are so afraid that they needed 'John Wayne' to come to the resue. It seems like they would like to see us just go and nuke everyone who is not 'in-line' with us. It's weird. Their answer to everything is to just send more troops, as if the lives of our young sons and daughters are totally expendable. (But don't forget...they're suppose to be pro-life).
