being a republican-what it takes
I often wondered after listening to the Republicans in the House espoused endless lines of nonsense about how President Obama is destroying the country, disregarding and violating the constitution, and ruining America's freedom just what it takes to be a Republican.
First of all, you obviously cannot be a person who values and understands facts. Second, you cannot believe in scientific fact and you regard religion as fact-based and provable because it is based on the Bible. Nonsense like dinosaurs died off 6,000 years ago based on biblical "fact" so that the earth could be created in six days or seven, whatever.
In addition, you steadfastly do not represent the voters in your districts unless they are billionaires and you have offered to prostitute yourself and your family before the billionaire's crouch. You have no problem lying about your policies because you believe in nothing except obtaining money from special interests to promote their non-democratic ideas.
The idea of passing or supporting legislation to benefit the voters in your district or the country at large is foreign to you. You have no interest in studying legislative proposals, writing your constituents, or visiting the less fortunate in your district because you consider them to be idiots for electing you in the first place. Their only value is to continue voting for you based on the lies you tell and your lack of performance.in governing because history has shown that your voters are stupid enough to do just that,.
You continue to lie about your concern for excessive government spending after you help shut down the government wasting $25 billion dollars. Also you will never admit that President Obama has reduced the budget deficit or that the economy is improving despite your party's obstruction. You stand firm in rejecting any expenditures that will help the unemployed, fix infrastructure, fund the VA, fund the FAA, or deal with the immigration crisis.
You go home each night after attending another fundraiser to promote your reelection campaign and/or political actions committees you setup to enrich yourself and your family and look in the mirror and admire yourself for being a great patriot. You even dream of being elected president because you know how to lead the country to a better place.
