  •  That is what scares me (4+ / 0-)

    These people feel like they have nothing to lose because "the end is near" For them it is a fight of good vs. evil. That is why they could care less about how their actions affect others. Anyone who gets hurt is on the "wrong side" anyway. And of course God supposedly will save the day and punish the wrongdoers.

    I need to learn more about the founding of our nation but I suspect that this kind of zealotry is worse in many ways than what our ancesters fled from. At least there were no nuclear weapons or other WMD'S to worry about.

    And yes it is scary that they want to hasten the end of the world. That is a primary reason that they use to support Israel. And yet it is hypocritical in many ways since they believe that the Jews are infidels along with the Muslims. After all Jesus is supposed to eradicate ALL NON-CHRISTIANS.

    I was born in 1964 so I did not live through the Cuban Missile Crisis. That must have been terrifying.

    Right now I do not know if I will ever vote Republican again. These people have an insane version of reality. They aren't trustworthy on any level. They are in fact the reason why I have become a liberal out of sheer self-defense against these idiots.
