2. The Consequences of Identity

As the scum (Conservative Democrat) of whom you speak, I feel a need to respond to your rant. In spite of my limited IQ, I will try to formulate a coherent retort.

Seriously, you make some really good points once the strong emotion is separated from the insight, but you share some common misconceptions. Very few members of the GOP today are actually Conservatives in spite of claims to the contrary.

The word Conservative (conserve) is the key to its definition. We are wary of fixing things that are not broken. Obsessive Conservatives want no change at all as long as society can limp along, just as obsessive Liberals want radical change immediately without considering the consequences. I myself and most real Conservatives I know just want things to work.

The philosophy of the GOP today, it appears to me, is Anarchy. They seem dead set on bringing down the government. If it weren't for Obama, of whom I am not a great fan, they could very well have succeeded by now; first by freeing corporations of legal restrictions (setting loose the Hounds of Hell) and second by declaring these Corporations to be human, with human rights but without human responsibility for their actions and their money, words deserving the status of freedom of speech. In effect they (with the support of the Supreme Court) have created a sort of Pagan Pantheon of Gods.

The fact that you seem to be invalidating your justified outrage and frustration by trying to fight hate (which the GOP is using quite effectively) is unfortunate. And your suggestion (that those of us with limited intelligence and a demonic image forced upon us by those using our identity and past reputation of balance and fair leadership to hide their attacks on the very foundations of our American ideals be exterminated like the inferior despicable infestation that we are in your mind) is kind of scary.

In fact it sounds a lot like today’s GOP. If you are serious, Anarchy (the society these fake Conservatives seem to be preaching) has won.
