"There is no act of treachery of meanness of which a political party is not capable; for in politics there is no honor."
What is amazing is the meanness of the Republican Christian Right. And it is not just Republican Christian Right but also those Americans Conservatives who have bought into that paranoid, homophobic, bigoted, selfish belief system. The Right spouts lies and trite phrases of the Right Wing media, who play to their audience. There is a new spirit about in America and it is a meanness of the spirit. Gone is the unity following the attack of 911 when all Americans joined together as one regardless of race, or religion or national origin.
The Republican Christian Right call themselves Christians, whoa, if they are Christians then Christianity has definitely been redefined. They and the Republican Right have become the party of MEAN. Listen to them on the issues of universal health care, they opposed to it, let the health care companies rip of the American consumer. If you do not have coverage, well it's just too bad; immigration, we exploit illegal immigrants, but deny them what we all enjoy, the opportunity to become citizens; the black president, that is enough to hate him plus he's a democrat and liberal; homosexuals, deny them the right equal rights and the right to marry and discriminate against them for a life style that hurts no one; the rights of women, they want to control their bodies and deny them equal status. They are regressive, bigoted, misogynist, homophobic to name a few. They are in-explicitly anti education and specifically anti intellectual.
They are wrong, very wrong. They harm people, and won't understand it until the system they are trying to support turns against them. Then they will suddenly say but I worked for you. What they don't understand is that the corporate mentality sees them for what they are, useful idiots.
The sad thing is, that President Obama is caving in to the Right in congress and to those Republican and Democrat hypocrites who have sold their office to the corporate lobbyist. The question is where are the elected representitives of courage willing to stand up and call it like it is? Are there no statesmen left?
