Response to Botany (Reply #8)

12. Going back

It all started when the religious right sold their souls to the repub party going back to Nixon. Election after election these religious repubs were promised the end of abortion and establishing a Christian nation as they defined it. Nothing was done as to big legislation, but slowly the repubs have chipped away at abortion rights and mixing religion with government. Frustrated repubs joined the tea bagger movement and many are in the House now. Many of these tea baggers have taken over the states' repub parties. The so called establishment repubs did nothing to stop them thinking they would get their votes and then these folks would shut up. It hasn't worked out that way and now they have such a horrible candidate in Roy Moore. I truly believe Roy Moore will be elected. The repubs in Alabama do not want to be told who to support. They are on the extreme right and do not like the so called establishment repubs.

The mess going on with the repubs is why I keep pointing out that we on the left need to stay united and focus on beating the crap out of the repubs where possible. This can only be done by supporting the Democratic Party candidates. Get wins and then make the changes to the Dem Party that folks have been talking about. I sure hope we on the left don't end up like what is going on with the repubs. We won't win that way.
