"I am a Conservative Christian " I once proudly proclaimed! Man it felt good! Conservative, yea, that's me!
"Conservative Christian " sure has comforting and secure ring to it, doesn't it? It's kind of like a warm and fuzzy blanket on a brisk fall day. It's nice until you take it off, inspect it, and see all the vermin nesting on the fuzzy surface. Once I realized that it was infested beyond salvation I quickly burned it so that the vermin and disease would not spread to innocent bystanders.
Unfortunately, much of America is pulling the conservative and religious blanket even more tightly around ourselves, so much so that it is stifling our senses and restricting the oxygen intake to our brains, resulting in rampant and unrelenting stupidity.
It's the intentional celebration of ignorance and dismissiveness of intellect and competence that kills me. Simple answers to complex issues just don't work. "Drill Baby Drill" and "Obama's Death Panels" comes to mind as recent examples, yet our population just loves these "one liner pseudo solutions".
The very fact that someone with the intelligence level of Sarah Palin can even be considered as a candidate for ANY level of politics is alarming. How low of a bar do we have? Don't we have any type of intelligence test for political office above dog catcher?
So, what if the Tea Party does well this election. O'donnel looks to be out, but there are tight races in Alaska, Nevada, Colorado, Florida and other states. What if 4 or 5 or 6 Tea Bagges win? Will that concern you? What if Sarah Palin, or any Conservative candidate, becomes president in 2012?
yes, I understand other countries are also moving right, but the starting point for their move is much different than the US, no?
At what point do you say good luck and goodbye to America and get the heck out of dodge?
