Dear Tea Partiers, Biblical Literalists, and anti-science Republicans in general:

The end times are coming.  God has abandoned the Earth to the anti-christ, who may or may not be disguised as a US politician.  You're afraid.  You've stocked up on a year's supply of soup goop as per Glenn Beck's instructions, and you're fairly certain that the End of the World (tm) - and thus the Rapture - is coming. And soon.  Heck, it might even be in 2012 - maybe Jesus visited the Mayans and informed them all those centuries ago!

In the meantime, though, you're stuck with all those damn godless liberals that keep trying to socialize healthcare and take away your freedom.  Well, you have nothing to fear!

The liberals are hereby giving you permission to GO GALT and get away from them once and for all!

That's right! You're free.  You may take your Beck-approved soup goop, take your libertarian Skills of Production, and most importantly, take your God given and Constitution given Freedom, and abandon the heathen Godless liberals to their fate.

You have permission to abandon the government that has abandoned you.  In fact, it's really pointless to even run for political office when the world is ending, isn't it?  Let those big-government liberals waste their time with that.  You have more important things to do, like getting ready to meet Jesus.  After all, God didn't make the world 6,000 years ago just to let it fry to a crisp before Jesus could come back!  That's why global warming is a hoax, and to prove it, you should Go Galt (tm) out in the middle of the Arizona desert.  Take it back (it's part of the country too) from all those damn illegals!

Out in the desert, you are free to establish a Tea Bagger Paradise.  Without the interference of those damn liberals and the pesky government, you'll be free to camp out and wait for Jesus to return without any of the things that are frightening you.  No more maybe possibly Kenyan Muslim President!  No more activist judges! No more doctors to perform baby-killing abortions! No more "experts" to tell you things that contradict the Bible - and your common sense!  No more evolution hoax and global warming hoax and frightening vaccines that cause worse diseases than they prevent.  No more complicated science to get in your way!  

Out in the freedom of the wilderness, Big Brother won't tell you what to do. You'll be free to wait out for the end of the world with Jesus in total conservative purity.  Even better, you'll be with nothing but other like-minded right wing individuals, who know that Sarah Palin should have been president in 2008 and that Obama caused the bank bailouts and ruined 'Merica by being Black.

It'll be just like camping out on the weekend with your best buds! Only the weekend won't end til Jesus comes back and Raptures you all. What a great ending to your camping trip!

And in the meantime, once you've Gone Galt (tm), the godless liberals can go about their terrible business of addressing the deficit and global warming, running the country in a productive manner, taking care of the sick, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to be free.  All that socialist stuff.

Let them.  America will end with the rest of the world anyway, and even God's blessing can't save it. You've got more important things to do in the meantime.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
