Just think- once upon a time, the Republican party was the party that was willing to go to war to free a people. And I'm not talking about Iraqis, Afghans or Kuwaitis. Or have you forgotten that one of our greatest leaders was a Republican? I refer you to Abraham Lincoln (he of the Emancipation Proclamation that said all slaves in the United States were to be freed. You know, just in case you grew up in a cave or have suffered from total memory loss or something).
No matter Lincoln's ultimate reasoning behind the move to abolish slavery (and it has been debated, but you can research that on your own)- it was a brave, and ultimately deadly, move.
It's also a the type of stand I can't imagine we'll ever see again.
Instead, the face of the modern Republican Party is represent by people like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly or Pat Robertson- all of whom have made the news over the past week thanks to the complete and utter stupidity of their statements regarding Haiti.
I mean, does anyone really give one tin shit about what these fucklings has to say about anything? I mean, besides their followers, who will repeat as gospel any drops of dipshit that fall from their continually flapping faceholes, no matter how venomous or hate-filled it is.
Besides, the is the good, old U.S. of A. and we're all entitled to our opinions, no matter how detestable the majority may find them.
It's the First Amendment- and, while it might suck some ginormous ass to hear the things these mental midgets foist on us- it's also why I can post my opinions on the matter and you are free to agree or disagree with them. (No matter how right I might be.)
