Things that SHOULD make Republican voters go 'Hmmmmm' ...

Do you ever wonder why, when there is some question of wrong-doing on the part of the president, he always tries to thwart any investigation into his actions? If he were innocent of anything untoward, wouldnt a transparent investigation serve to vindicate him and prove his detractors wrong?

Do you ever wonder why its the Republicans who insist on using Diebold machines, when theyve been proven to be easily hackable and consistently show faulty results that favour the Republican candidates? Do you ever think that if your party was fair and honest, they would insist on using machines that ensured an accurate vote count?

Cheney, who is still on the Halliburton payroll, keeps saying that he has 'earmarked' those earnings for charity in the future. Do you ever think about why he doesnt just donate the money now?

Do you ever wonder where your tax dollars have gone, when you hear that the national debt is now at $9 Trillion dollars, and all you see is the cutting of funding to health needs, education, transportation systems, etc., instead of the expansion of any of those things?

Do you ever wonder why Bill Frist is still being described as a GOP presidential hopeful, when hes under investigation for stock fraud and charitable donation fraud? Do you ever think that if your party had ANYONE to run who is NOT likely to be indicted on one charge or another, theyd be touting him as the likely candidate?

Do you ever wonder why the Noble Cause were fighting for in Iraq keeps changing from week to week? Do you ever think that if that cause was something clear-cut and truthful, Bush could have told Cindy Sheehan what it was, and saved himself a lot of bad publicity?

Do you ever wonder why your president keeps telling you how engaged he is in the running of the country, while at the same time he keeps referring to things he didnt know anything about, like the Dubai ports deal?

Do you ever wonder why your president has degrees from Harvard and Yale, but he cant speak for more than two minutes without annihilating the English language? Do you ever think about why, if hes so smart, he failed at every business venture he was ever involved in? Do you look at the national debt and wonder if there isnt some fuzzy math at play here?

Do you ever wonder why your president constantly talks about being pro-life, when he gleefully executed people as the Governor of Texas, and laughed about the fact on national television during the 2000 primaries?

Do you ever wonder why your president and his administration hold themselves out to be good Christians, while they embrace torture, rendition, and secret prisons?

Do you ever wonder why your self-proclaimed born-again Christian president took an oath, on the holy Bible, to uphold the Constitution, but then says he is not bound by the laws set out in that same document?

Do you ever wonder why your elected officials do their utmost to protect the unborn, but do nothing to improve the lives of the already-born?

Do you ever wonder why your elected officials say they are representing your best interests, when they support laws that put the interests of Big Oil, Big Pharma, and Big Business above your interests every time?

Do you ever wonder why your elected officials are stuffing their own pockets with Abramoff money, while at the same time theyre swearing they never even met the man?

Do you ever wonder why your elected officials are always scolding you about living within your means, while they vote themselves raises every time the cost of living goes up? Do you ever think about all of the extended trips they take to exotic places on your dime, to discuss how bad things are back home?

Do you ever wonder why your party members invariably respond to legitimate questions about their policies by attacking the person who had the temerity to pose the question? Do you ever think that maybe their policies are indefensible, and thats why they consistently resort to that tactic?

Do you ever wonder why there are millions upon millions of easily accessible records of those who have served in the military, and the only records that have ever gone missing are the ones that would prove your presidents assertion that he actually fulfilled his military service requirements?

Do you ever wonder why you, a United States resident, have to pay every penny of your taxes or face dire consequences, while thousands of profitable corporations legally duck paying theirs simply by having a Bahamian post office box listed as their headquarters?

Do you ever wonder why Bush and Cheney admitted, albeit reluctantly, that Saddam Hussein and Iraq had nothing to do with the September 11th attacks, but keep right on linking the two every chance they get?

Do you ever wonder why a guy named Curveball was given total credibility in the lead-up to the Iraq invasion, while experienced intelligence analysts were dismissed as nutballs?

Do you ever wonder why your president and your elected officials constantly tell you that the outsourcing your job is GOOD for the country? Did you ever think to ask them to explain actually how that works?

Do you ever wonder why?

Do you ever?

Do you?

Just wonderin
