  •  A confession (7+ / 0-)

    I was once a Republican.  I am still conservative on some things.  I left the party because of these sick, demented people who have this 17th century vision of the world and use God as the backstop justification for this vision.

    They did not always dominate the GOP.  There was a time when lunatics like Mourdock and Akin would be muttering something in the back of the room.  Now they are the leaders of the party.  

    How did things get so bad?  I think it is the amoral corporatists who will pour money into any vessel that will maintain their revenue models.  Does Monsanto care if the politicians they support think that a rapist is just executing God's plan?  No.  They care about selling Roundup--lots of it--and seed that is immune to it's effect.  Monsanto is probably the worst, but there are many, many more who think the same way.

    I'm sorry for my past support of the GOP.  It now makes me sick.

    •  I agree; that's pretty much it (0+ / 0-)

      Amoral corporatists. Or even, just plain evil corporatists. But then, much of the Democratic Party could be described as compassionate corporatists. Well, at least we can try to improve it. The Rs are a lost cause.

      I am become Man, the destroyer of worlds
