10 Commandments Republican Style

The Ten Commandments--Republican-Style

Rebecca Lauer

I. Thou shalt talk about Christian principles, but not live by them
II. Thou shalt attack opponents personally when you can't win on policies
III. Thou shalt call yourself pro-life, but be in favor of the death penalty
IV. Thou shalt call yourself pro-life, and put guns in the hands of school children
V. Thou shalt give lip service to democracy while taking away civil liberties
VI. Profit is the Lord Thy God, thou shalt not put the people's interest above those of your corporate contributors
VII. Thou shalt make sure fetuses have health coverage, but leave children and babies behind
VIII Thou shalt bear false witness against your opponents and liberals, and demonize them
IX. Thou shalt run on a moderate platform, then enact right-wing policies as soon as possible
X. Thou shalt call the media liberal, so that people forget that the media is owned by corporations with a conservative fiscal agenda

2. #9 should have a picture of Scott Walker next to it.

I fear more every day the right is going to use the same tactics they used to get him elected in wisconsin to get him elected president, and then he's going to enact the same policies on a nationwide scale.

6. The 11th commandment....

“Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican.” “Henceforth, if any Republican has a grievance against another, that grievance is not to be bared publicly.”

While attributed to Ronald Reagan its was his State GOP Chairman Gaylord B. Parkinson when he ran for Governor. Reagan espoused the commandment and we seee just how the Republican Party evolved to allow its ranks to be peppered with lunatics
