Republicans disgust me. They are liars and manipulators. Dividers. Fear mongers. Smiling when they talk about war and grinning when they tell their lies and distort their record. Trying to impose their hateful morals on the rest of the world, they're nothing but the Taliban reborn. Have you seen their platform? Have you listened to their speeches? These warmongers? These liars?
Let's get some things straight:
Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Stop insinuating there is.
Where is Osama? Why are we in Iraq if fucking Osama Bin Laden is free? Since he is free, obviously Bush *didn't* do his job, did he?
The 9/11 commission makes it very clear that Bush's administration ignored signs of a pending attack. Stop pretending it was a surprise.
Abu Ghraib was a direct result of Bush's previous disregard for the Geneva Convention. Don't pretend it didn't happen or was an isolated incident. Bush is ultimately responsible for the torture.
There are no Weapons of Mass Destruction. Bush LIED. Don't try to call Kerry a liar to minimize his deceptions.
Kerry served in Vietnam. Bush was AWOL. These are facts.
"Swiftboat Veterans for Bush" was assisted by the Bush Campaign. More facts.
Bush lied to the entire country and Colin Powell lied to the entire world as to why we should invade Iraq, then we did so in spite of the U.N. and without a plan to win the peace. Bush's actions have caused unprecedented anger and resentment towards the U.S. and made us less safe, not more.
Iraq and Afganistan are not *free*. Stop fucking saying they are. LIARS. They are under U.S. military occupation.
The Bush White House organized and provided the "Mission Accomplished" sign, which they then denied. Liars.
What about the other issues besides terror?
Anti-choice. This party thinks a woman's right to choose should be against the law (obstensibly to save the life of an unborn child... but they don't mind killing thousands of innocent Iraqis, do they?). This is an adminstration that prevents American healthcare workers in Africa give out condoms to help stop the spread of AIDs. Republicans are sick and twisted.
Homophobes. Republicans are the party of discrimination and segregation.
Republicans cut taxes on the wealthy and then cut funding for children. Just released numbers show more Americans in poverty and more people without healthcare. Republicans think this is the way life should be. (They made sure that the poverty and healthcare numbers were released in August instead of the end of September when they would have a bigger impact on the campaign). Fuckers.
George W. Bush turned his back on the Middle East peace process begun by Bill Clinton causing a massive increase in violence and tensions in the region.
Bush's administration named a CIA spy in retaliation to criticism by her husband. Someone should be in jail.
Haliburton no-bid contracts? Closed door energy meetings? Cheney should be in jail. Bush should be in jail for war crimes for that matter.
Bush is an incompetent, ignorant, dangerous moron. When asked a basic question in a press conference, Bush exclaimed that he couldn't think under pressure and wished that the question had been given in advance. Terrorists don't give questions in advance George, you're not fit to run this country.
Republicans just keep on lying and lying and lying until the stupid people think it's the truth just because it's so consistent. E.g. "Death Tax", "Compassionate Conservatism", "Flip Flop", "Liberal Media". The last one is the biggest lie. The media is *not* liberal but now everyone assumes it is, and the conservatives get their way always. They are manipulators extraordinaire. Have you read the platform? Revisionism and manipulation at it's best. Goebbels could't have written it better.
Finally, thank god Ahnold is Austrian by birth. That fucking maniac. Calling the Democrats liars? Is he kidding me? And the rest of that crap he spewed is just garbage. What an asshole (but a great representative of his party).
The party of Lincoln and Liberty was transmogrified into the party of hairy-backed swamp developers and corporate shills, faith-based economists, fundamentalist bullies with Bibles, Christians of convenience, freelance racists, misanthropic frat boys, shrieking midgets of AM radio, tax cheats, nihilists in golf pants, brownshirts in pinstripes, sweatshop tycoons, hacks, fakirs, aggressive dorks, Lamborghini libertarians, people who believe Neil Armstrongâ€™s moonwalk was filmed in Roswell, New Mexico, little honkers out to diminish the rest of us, Newtâ€™s evil spawn and their Etch-A-Sketch president, a dull and rigid man suspicious of the free flow of information and of secular institutions, whose philosophy is a jumble of badly sutured body parts trying to walk. Republicans: The No.1 reason the rest of the world thinks weâ€™re deaf, dumb and dangerous.
Rich ironies abound! Lies pop up like toadstools in the forest! Wild swine crowd round the public trough! Outrageous gerrymandering! Pocket lining on a massive scale! Paid lobbyists sit in committee rooms and write legislation to alleviate the suffering of billionaires! Hypocrisies shine like cat turds in the moonlight! O Mark Twain, where art thou at this hour? Arise and behold the Gilded Age reincarnated gaudier than ever, upholding great wealth as the sure sign of Divine Grace.
Here in 2004, George W. Bush is running for reelection on a platform of tragedyâ€”the single greatest failure of national defense in our history, the attacks of 9/11 in which 19 men with box cutters put this nation into a tailspin, a failure the details of which the White House fought to keep secret even as it ran the country into hock up to the hubcaps, thanks to generous tax cuts for the well-fixed, hoping to lead us into a box canyon of debt that will render government impotent, even as we engage in a war against a small country that was undertaken for the presidentâ€™s personal satisfaction but sold to the American public on the basis of brazen misinformation, a war whose purpose is to distract us from an enormous transfer of wealth taking place in this country, flowing upward, and the deception is working beautifully.
The concentration of wealth and power in the hands of the few is the death knell of democracy. No republic in the history of humanity has survived this. The election of 2004 will say something about what happens to ours. The omens are not good.
Our beloved land has been fogged with fearâ€”fear, the greatest political strategy ever. An ominous silence, distant sirens, a drumbeat of whispered warnings and alarms to keep the public uneasy and silence the opposition. And in a time of vague fear, you can appoint bullet-brained judges, strip the bark off the Constitution, eviscerate federal regulatory agencies, bring public education to a standstill, stupefy the press, lavish gorgeous tax breaks on the rich.
And are you pissed off like I am that there is not enough Democratic representation in the media while covering this event? I got this from Daily Kos. Every Democratic speech had Ralph fucking Reed commenting on it, but Republicans are getting a free ride. This is ridiculous. Make your voice heard:
