Republicans are very sick people...
Why do people call themselves Republican? I know....

There are really only two reasons; They are either totally ignorant or they are bigots, racists, greedy, selfish,morally bankrupt scum.

Which is it? The scary part is that by looking at any recent poll. it is very easy to conclude that about 30% or so of the US population is either so sick and twisted or so ignorant that they beyond any help.

1. does anyone know what the percentage of White supremacists is within
the US population? I'd be interested how the two groups intersect with the stalwart backwash 31%

2. anyone who still considers themselves a repuke
is guilty of crimes against humanity

being an ignorant, racist, bigoted, greedy, selfish, morally bankrupts scum is no defense against the very well-known crimes the repuke party has committed.

4. Greed and/or stupidity are the two factors that make people repukes.
I think almost every category of these people falls under one or both of these characterizations.

9. I'm black and I
feel more discusted at my black repugs. I often wonder how so many human beings can be so wrong 99% of the time and still believe they are right, and when you bring facts and truth in any conversation they get this dumb founded look on their faces like you're on another planet.

10. Yes. It's so maddening.
I am female and get angry at these anti-women Republican lawmakers, as well.

As for black rightwingers, I get so furious when the cable networks trot out one of a handful of black rightwing pundit types to spout the Bush administration lies. You can just see the cynicism behind that, the conservative interests behind the scenes saying: "Well, they're black, so the liberals can't complain. heh heh heh." Of course, we rarely see a true black progressive (of which there are many in real life) get to talk about issues that truly are important -- minimum wage, the growing gap between the very rich and the poor or even middle class, an education system that allows urban schools to crumble, etc. etc.

6. Republicanism appeals to the authoritarian personality
I am right, therefore everybody should do what I say because I am right. Any proof of my not-right-ness is a conspiracy.

11. On the bright side
take consolation that every country on earth has its population tainted by 30% right wing, brutal, sick, twisted, war mongering, greedy, selfish, control obsessed nutcases.
