This came in from a Rhonda S. I sent it to our 40+ editors and 30% of them commented on it, so I thought I'd let you, our readers check it out and comment on it.
I refrained from responding to her. I usually don't respond to this kind of nastiness.
So please, please try to refrain from nastiness and just respond to whatever else there is in there to respond to-- false statements, false assumptions, etc.
Here's Rhonda's diatribe.
What a despicable bunch of liars you are. I spent the first 50 years of my life assuming your position to be correct. You resort to name calling (teabaggers) when you haven't a valid argument. This is the sort of garbage that turned me off and sent me to the other side. Name callers are bullies and they have something to hide when they resort to such tactics which is the fact that your position is severely flawed to the point of failure and destruction. I voted Democrat for over 30 years until I began to do some independent research and not listen to the same old rant. I learned about current events the Press is deliberately leaving out of print. I learned about history which is deliberately kept out of our textbooks and even out and out lies which depict Democrats in a good light which couldn't be further from the facts. Couple this with an administration which is making policy which is the very antithesis of our Founders intentions. These policies are damaging to our morale, economy and our welfare. Since for those years I read and watched the left point of view exclusively I have become enraged at the corruptness of the liberals.
I despise progressives, your group by definition is dishonesty and corruption. I'm now VERY proud to be a Republican and a member of two Tea Party groups. The more I learn the more conservative I become and the more I realize how wrong the left is. Shame on you! Let's have a look at the so-called "democracies" you seem to admire, http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/DBG.CHAP2.HTM You speak of "American Justice" but that's a smokescreen. You actually mean "social justice" which means nothing more than taking form one group which will impoverish them and give to others who hadn't earned it. Government MUST stay out of the business of the individual. If I haven't the income of someone I envy, it's my own fault for not taking advantage of my opportunities for as Americans (according to our Constitution) we ALL share the same opportunities but NOT the same outcome!!! I despise people like you, to me who has finally opened my eyes, you are what's terribly wrong with the world. The day you open your eyes as I have and others such as Mamet have, will be the day of healing for the world. Socialism doesn't work, never has; even Putin realizes that http://www.darkskiesblog.com/2009/02/18/putin-to-obama-socialism-doesnt-work/
You wont report facts nor will you show anything negative which may indicate your position is wrong, such as the debt crisis in Greece. You're afraid that if the facts get out, your agenda will be in jeopardy of losing support. It's the very reason you wont report facts about the bogus man-made-global-warming crap. In the late 60s and early 70s Holdren claimed we were headed for an ice age; he claimed we were in a serious global warming era which would see a huge sea-level rise. Now we've begun to go through the cooling period which your kind claim is now called "climate change". What a CROCK! So, the earth has never gone through these periods in the history of the planet? We know what's behind it, your agenda to control human behavior and the useful idiots who blindly follow without questioning if you're position holds water.
You have no moral compass. You lie to achieve your goals, the very thing you accuse people of on the conservative side which is classical "projection" or an Alinsky tactic originating from the communists; either way, it's mental illness. It turns my stomach to think I used to be a liberal. I use ALL of my spare time and money to help others see the truth; I've converted many in the last two years and I'll continue to do so until the day I'm old and infirm and can no longer communicate. When these folks realize they've been lied to by your kind, they become enraged as well. Your numbers are dwindling.
