The conservative base is tired of pretending to be more moderate than they are

Nowadays the conservative base is tired of pretending to be more moderate than they are in order to help Republicans get elected. They’re expanding the battle of reproductive rights to attack contraception. They’re heckling people who’ve lost loved ones to gun violence. Feigned “compassionate conservatism” has instead turned into ugly attacks on the “47%” and claiming that anyone who votes for a Democrat is lazy and refuses to work. It’s not surprising, therefore, that deeply ugly attitudes about rape and domestic violence are no longer contained in spittle-flecked blog comments or uttered only behind closed doors, but are now coming out of the mouths of politicians and being turned into policy. Make no mistake; looking to pass laws banning rape victims specifically from aborting is part of this bigger picture.

6. I don't think so

 

From what I remember Satan wants to collect souls. Wouldn't that imply that repugs have a soul? Everyone knows that repugs don't have a soul.

2. So much for expecting the GOP 'moderates' to regain control of the party!

The 2016 presidential primary will be "Clown Car on Steroids!"

4. I could tell things were getting bad when

At a meeting, a teabagger so-called Christian said we shouldn't sell our products to certain countries. Just let all those people get sick and die. Horrible!

5. They want the destruction of the country

deep down I bet most hope for a melt down so they can re enact slavery.
There hatred for president Obama has unhinged them to that point.

8. You know what they say about corned animals

Everywhere they look their "values" under attack gays in the military, gay allowed to married, women in combat, an America that is more racially and religiously diverse than ever. If your values are such that the only acceptable definition of American white, straight and Christian your world is getting really narrow.
