TIAPP: Political Parties as seen by someone I know
The following comes from an IRC discussion I didn't see while away from my computer. Anyway, I thought people might be entertained to read it.
[17:18] anyway, this one MOther Jones contributor was going on about how, "no president in history has done more to enshrine his personal religious beliefs into law than GWB" [17:19] I was like, "someone needs to tell James Dobson, because he's pissed" [17:19] let's see: [17:19] abortion: nope [17:19] anti-gay marraige amendment: nope [17:19] prayer in schools: nope [17:19] the list goes on [17:19] not a single religious right holy grail type issue has been turned into law [17:20] Dobson ripped Rick Santorum a new one on his radio show the other day for that [17:20] all these years of Republican control, and none of the cultural right stuff has happened [17:20] and none of it will happen, either, because the minute abortion is outlawed there's officially no reason to vote Republican for a lot of people [17:21] I mean, it's certainly no the party of fiscal responsibility [17:21] or job creation, or looking after the middle class, or any of that nonsense [17:21] of course, neither are the Dems [17:22] Anyway, the left is fucked on multiple levels, and the right is too busy taking casino money and being corrupt [17:22] there is no left [17:22] that you even think there is shows that the republicans have won [17:23] yeah there is... they exist, but they're not very relevant anymore [17:23] I know a quite a few old-school Ivy educated media establishment lefites [17:24] and none of them have a clue how most Americans live or what makes them tick
[17:24] The reason taht the GOP is running the show now is that they're corrupt versions of ordinary Americans [17:24] The Dems are slightly less corrupt versions of old-line elites [17:26] Ok, that was my political rant for the day
