Prerequisites for being a Republican

Are these some of the prerequisites for being a Republican, Right-winger, or Tea Party member?


1 - Use the Big Lie often enough and loud enough that people begin to believe it

2 - Use misdirection, such that people cannot easily find any truth in what you say

3 - Use Fear, so that you scare the population into believing your Big Lies

4 - Do not have any actual ideas on how to make our country better; just do whatever you can to block President Obama from succeeding

5 - Be as dumb as a stone - for examples look at Dubya, Sarah (I can see Russia from here) Palin, and of course, Michelle Bachmann (I can see Canada from here); and her latest, an attempt at Yiddish, Chutzpah!   Pronounced Shootpzie.

6 -- Be completely soulless!


Does it frighten you as much as it frightens me, that these are the only candidates the Right can come up with?   One of the people writing a comment mentioned Dwight David (Ike) Eisenhower as being possibly the last Republican to speak the truth.   Seemingly, this is an accurate statement.

All American citizens have the right to vote; all Americans have the responsibility to learn the truth about what is being said, written, or otherwise disseminated by all candidates, no matter which party they represent.   Only by learning from whom the truth comes, and the intentions of the various candidates, can we ever hope to get back on the track, laid down by Bill Clinton and being continued by Obama, but begun by JFK!   Remember, Clinton left office with the largest surplus this nation has ever had, and a relatively peaceful world.

Dubya left office with the largest deficit this country has ever had, and we are still engaged in two wars, and many other skirmishes.   The economic disaster began while Dubya was still President, as well.   It is impossible to blame Obama for something which began before he took office, as the Right has been trying to do ever since they lost the election.

But Mitch - the Stitch - McConnell has been blaming President Obama for the deficit, when it began two years before Obama took office.

Come on, folks, don't let the Republicans continue to treat you like mushrooms - keep you in the dark and feed you manure all day long.

Think for yourselves.   Americans are the smartest, most independent people in the world.   It is time to remember that and act accordingly.
