Republicans hate America. More specifically, Republicans hate American democracy. It’s the simplest, and most consistent, explanation as to why, in story after story, we see Republicans in open revolt against the democratic rule of law in this country.

They don’t believe in an independent judiciary, and have been undermining, and outright threatening, judges for years. They don’t believe in elections, and thus either gerrymander them when possible (like they’ve now successfully done with the House), or outright attempt to steal them, like they did in the 2000 presidential, and like they tried against Al Franken and others.

Look at the Clinton impeachment. I always say that the Republicans launched a witch hunt and they eventually caught a witch. My point being, they were out to destroy Clinton from day one, with zero evidence to justify their jihad against the man. They didn’t like the way the election went, so they tried to reverse by nearly all means necessary.

Democratic electoral victories, progressive court victories, are not legitimate in GOP eyes. And if Republicans find themselves losing the game, fair and square, they simply change the rules.

Of course, it’s more than simply hating America and the way our democracy is wired. Republicans hate facts, and they loathe reality. Reality, you see, has a liberal bias. If we let judges rule, citizens vote, journalists report, students study, and scientists research – all independently – for some strange reason they keep coming up with conclusions that, more often than not, go against the GOP.

So, Republicans try to intimidate the judges, steal the vote, create their own faux news network, and then brither, truther, and climate-changer any and every scientific result possible. That’s why a GOP state official in Missouri is trying to redefine, by legislative fiat, the word “scientific theory” to include “faith-based philosophy.” This way, priests can call themselves “scientists,” and creationism immediately becomes “science.”

Hell, GOP president wannabe Marco Rubio couldn’t even admit that the earth was 4.5 billion years old a few months back, lest he inflame the flat-earth base of his own party.

Look at the GOP position on education. For some reason, when people go and get an education, they start to disagree with a lot of Republican positions (this is related to the GOP’s judge, journalist and scientist problem). So, rather than conclude that maybe people with educations don’t like Republicans because, you know, they’re now better informed about the world – Republicans have concluded that college “brainwashes” kids to become liberals, and thus education is bad. As a result, you have people like GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum criticizing the notion as “elitist” that an American parent might want their kid to go to college.

The Republicans must destroy any institution that guarantees, any result that comes from, an objective assessment of the facts.

And that’s why more than half of the Republicans polled, in various recent polls, want to see President Obama impeached and removed from office. HuffPost concluded,“More than anything, surveys finding support for impeachment show just how divided Americans are today along party lines and how strongly rank-and-file members of each party dislike presidents from the opposing party.”

But it’s far worse than that. America isn’t divided. Republicans are seceding. There’s a difference. It’s a bit like me walking down the street minding my own business, you decide to mug me out of nowhere, and an observer says “the boys are divided.” The boys aren’t divided. One boy was walking quite peaceably minding his own business, while the other boy attacked him. Such is the state of our democracy.

The GOP is in 24-hour attack mode, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. And their victim isn’t just Democrats, it’s democracy itself.

No, the evil is EQUAL and when one party has the majority they never try and undo any bad policies put in place by former administrations- regardless of party. They just build upon the negatives and it gets worse. Yes, I see bad all have done-
but I am tired of this "good guy, bad guy" sttuff when ALL the poiticians are SCUM.

I wouldn't know know who was at the conventions. Just a bunch of phony stuff to me. I was told by some Ron Paul supporters who I knew that the Ron Paul people were treated horribly by the rest of the people there. All that blonde must have blinded you and sent you into a rage. Sad.

^^ Finally, someone who thinks like I do on this subject.

BOTH parties are working together, in one form or another (secretly), to keep the power and to make the sheeple-voters on BOTH sides keep focusing on each other, pointing the finger at the other side... instead of saying "Wait a second, they're BOTH playing us for the stupid pawns we are! SCREW them! Protest time! Let's show 'em we've a backbone and a BRAIN to see the scam they're pulling on all of us!"

Sadly, that doesn't happen. But, well, everything does happen for a reason. The criminal elite have had power for hundreds of years; they'll continue to have it. Even if one revolution happens (again), they'll slither in (again) and use-abuse in their new environment and the people will (again) be complacent and ignorant for a long time after that... and so it continues.

An amazingly narrow minded copy and paste. My favorite is the "Clinton witchhunt". You should be thankful there is 2 parties, one to help keep the other in check also to give you a choice. As in many peoples case most start out with a Democratic pov but as people get older and more successful a lot of their opinions change.

Republicans do not care for any Americans who are not on their level and Americans are not in their party. They have no concern for struggling Americans living in poverty.

I made an error. I meant to say Republicans do not care for Americans who are not in their party.

...and a President that wants to change the Constitution, the foundation of the US today,'loves' America?
Dems and libtards all, talk of democracy YET want to make millions of illegals, citizens and give them the vote, instead of rounding them up and sending them back to wherever they came from. Let that kind of lunacy go on long enough and the US will be the same shit hole that Mexico is.
What I have seen, worldwide, is that many governments go back on their pledges, and often do not reverse many 'poor' decisions by the previous administration.
Democracy here is a joke anyway, Obama got only 20% of the possible vote, too many people have lost interest in politics, we know that about 6 to 8 million evangelists didn't vote for Romney because he was a Mormon.
The US should be like Australia, make voting COMPULSORY, I'd go as far as jailing people for not voting.
Of course there will always be the problem of potentially almost half the electorate not having a voice if the vote is close. Maybe in such circumstances we can have some kind of 'shared' governance or leadership, say like POTUS of the 52% winning party and a VP of the 48%. Maybe we could get some consensus politics, instead of things rocking and rolling from one way to the other. That way, perhaps, people will fill more included in policies and decisions, instead of the situation like now, where ALL the Romney voters and non-voters feel the country and the government is alien to them.
I do wonder if that in the future, perhaps, technology will allow ordinary folks be part of governmental voting processes. We vote folks in and hope that they will give our view to the body they represent, and vote accordingly. However, worldwide, politicians say what they need to to get voted in, and then do as they please until reelection. Perhaps f we could vote on things electronically, they won't feel so arrogant and carefree.
For sure things need to change, for me the political system of the US has NOT kept up with population growth and diversity of its people and industries. Back in the slavery days, for example, decisions about slavery had different repercussions almost state by state, and we have states today with larger populations than the whole of the US was at its conception, or even a hundred years ago.
Change is needed sometime in the future, if not now.
Indeed he does. A President's role is leadership. The people change greater things than the U.S. Constitution. They toy with ancient scriptures to justify their sins. We ALL must be of sound mind and reasonable intelligence when we look a document as old and outdated as the constitution. We must look at the time it was written, the authors, and who really benefited from those words. For sure, they have not applied to everyone.
Then on the other hand you have people who read more into those words that are there. Take the second amendment which speaks to the right to bear arms. People today thinks those words meant you could use assault weapons that didn't even exist when the ink was put to paper in the writings of the Constitution. The right to protect ourselves is a "universal" law, "survival of the fittest" if you will. But we do not have the right to kill for any other reason. Something clearly needs to be done and we ALL need to take off the blinders and find a solution to this madness!

I could care less what the republicans do, who they kneel before, whether or not they like me or the president. That is all beyond my control. I don't waste my time on such foolishness but I do exercise my right to free speech and will voice my opinion.

I see things the way they are.

Shakaquacka, still repeating such nonsense concerning the 2nd Amendment. Amazing! As I said in those other gun threads: a lot of other modern technology was no invented yet at that time, it doesn't mean we nullify the rights now because the writers of said Bill of Rights did not know about future technology, such as the TV or radio when concerning FREEDOM OF THE PRESS.

The 2nd Amendment' context is clear: balance of force between the people and the government is needed to retain our protection of liberties. You know it, you just won't admit it openly; and if you cannot understand such a simple concept, then I feel very sorry for you.

Begone now, fascist-government-sympathizin g troll.
