Red Voters: Now You Will Reap what You Have Sown
Don't come crying to me when YOUR job is outsourced. I tried to warn you, you preferred to answer the rallying call of Guns, Abortion, Gays, God (hereafter referred to as GAGG.)

Don't come crying to me when you have no health insurance, and a catastrophic illness or injury bankrupts YOUR family, eats away at the nest egg YOU spent a life building, and leaves you with nothing. I tried to warn you...you preferred to answer the call of GAGG.

Don't come crying to me when you have less and less time to do the things YOU enjoy, because you have to work longer and longer hours to make ends meet...and without the benefit of overtime pay. I tried to warn you, but you heard only GAGG.

Don't come crying to me when your son, or your daughter, or even YOU...or someone YOU love is drafted to go to Iraq. I tried to warn you, you didn't hear me, you were too enthralled by the siren song of GAGG.

Here are my words to you now - "Fuck the red VOTERS!!"

I TRIED to warn you, to tell you...and you didn't listen. So don't cry later on, because the first thing I'm gonna ask, when you do come crying is...Who did YOU vote for? And if the answer is Bush...you get zero sympathy from me. I tried to warn you. You preferred, instead, to service your holier-than-thou self image, and project your hatred bigotry and prejudice onto others, by hearing only GAGG.

Gods, the lack of intelligence on your part, Red Voter, is ab-so-fucking-lutely breathtaking!!

How could ANYONE vote for economic serfdom, and against their own best interests...all in the name of shit that DOESN'T REALLY MATTER...like GAGG?

WTF??

Let me make this perfectly clear for you:

1. NO ONE is gonna take your guns away, America...wake the fuck up!!

2. NO ONE wants to stop you from worhipping your god, whoever he may be...IN YOUR OWN HOUSE OF WORSHIP...we only want to stop you from forcing YOUR god on US!!

3. NO ONE wants you to be gay, or like gays or approve of what gays do...but, really, how the FUCK does it hurt you, what they do? Why the FUCK can't you just leave them alone? So it's not your cup of tea?? Fine! Have some fuckin' coffee! And let them drink their tea. Quit trying to force them to drink coffee, they are not trying to force YOU to drink their tea!

4. NO ONE advocates abortions. It's a hard, horrible choice, and my heart goes out to any woman who is forced into making that painful choice. But, until there are enough funds to care for these children...enough potential adoptive parents for ALL of them...and until you crack the fuck down on deadbeat dads (many of whom are Red Voters)...until you take away the economic conditions that force a woman to that awful choice, abortions will happen, legal or not. They did before, and they will again. Only difference is, if they are not legal, then many women will die horrible deaths at the hands of quack "doctors" with unsterile equipment and dirty hands. What if she was someone YOU loved? Wouldn't you feel so wonderful that YOU had forced her into the position that put her life in jeopardy? Wouldn't you want her to have the best medical treatment available? It is a hard enough thing to have to do in the first place, the least we can do is make it safe and legal for her to do if she is left with no other choice!

Y'all Red Voter stupid fucks scream about the sanctity of life...yeah, until it costs YOU something!! You're all in favor of life IN the womb, but give a giant middle finger to that same life, once it is OUT of the womb!!

You cut needy children from Medicaid and Head Start programs...you cut funding for education and school lunches...and you give big tax breaks to huge corporate polluters who will cause or children to grow up unhealthy, many with fucking asthma...all in the name of the God-Almighty Fucking Buck! And how do YOU do this? YOU VOTE RED!! The blood that is on their hands is also on yours, because YOU put them in power! I blame YOU, Red Voter!

(end of rant)

27. Totally agree. Two days after the election, one of my repuke neighbors...
had the nerve to ask me how one goes about sending their child to Canada in the event of a draft (I am from Canada). I looked at her with a straight face and said, "No child gets to come in if either of their parents voted for Bush. Bummer for you. But, atleast you'll have your tax cut"

She believed me.

2. Very fine rant.
My sentiments exactly. They wanted it; they got it. They bought it; they own it. Now they're going to have to live with it. Even so, I think some of these people are so brainwashed they won't get the cause and effect, e.g., voting for Bush = getting drafted, losing your job, no health care. They'll blame something or someone else. Maybe Bill Clinton...

3. Don't forget
leaving the only employment option for their kids is "Join the Army, See strange far-off people, and kill them." When your children, parents and cousins die for an imperialistic war don't come crying to me either.

You speak for me, too. Thanks for that rant.
Edit: Also add "don't come crying to me when there is another terrorist strike against us on our own soil because Bush's policies in the middle east continue, causing anti-American fury to escalate."

Superb post! Great rant!
And I completely agree with your sentiments. My first question to anyone complaining about "What America has become" is always "Who did you vote for?" I feel NO sympathy for those who voted RED.
And don't those idiots realize that Red used to be hated by the RW as a symbol/color of the USSR? There is no cure for stupidity.

7. I asked my fundagelical hubby what the big deal about gay marriage is
and here is the answer I got.

"It's a sin".

Well ok, but we don't live in a theocracy.

"But this nation was founded on the Bible. Don't you think we should live according to Biblical principles?"

Um, yes and no. Yes to many of the principles, but no to saying they are from the Bible.

"How can a Christian say that? You aren't a real Christian."

Let's leave that up to God to decide. Back to the issue at hand. Why can't gays _legally_ get married.

"Because we need morality in this nation."

What about Bu$h murdering all those Iraqis in his war?

"That too."

Are you saying that two men or women getting married is the equivilent of murder?

"Yes. In God's eyes all sins are equal."



And there you have it, folks. A look into the mind of a protestant fundagelical. And if he wasn't my hubby and I didn't love him so much, I'd tie his shoelaces together when we go to bed tonight.

24. Ah, but didn't you know that Christ is the new Covenant?
That means you can eat bacon and you have to quit stoning wives who fool around (or maybe just look like they wanna fool around) BUT gays are still icky.

:eyes:

Stupid legalists take all of the grace and love out of the faith and render it a useless lifeless list of rules.

They render it a useless, lifeless list of rules TO IMPOSE ON OTHERS!!

They have no intent or desire to impose those same rules...or other biblical rules...ON THEMSELVES!!

Fucking hypocrites!

32. actually no
Edited on Mon Nov-08-04 10:42 PM by Sin
From what i remember in catholic school
Not all sin's are = there is Mortal and Venial Sins, venial sins you can die with on your soul and still go to heven( after a brief stop off in the wonderful play ground of purgatory)
If you have a Mortal straight to hell do not pass go do not collect white robe halo and wings.

+ I think there is a whole list of subdivisions of sin from there don't quote me on that. but they had to cover every Inch of there doctrine with plaster so no cracks could be made s so they made lots of an arcane law to cover what is sin and what sins send you were so no one could put a question fort that doesn't meet without an answer and if there isn't an answer then there trump card of faith falls down.

So yes sin is defiantly questioned by god I'm and atheist now because of my time in catholic school so i know all there little tricks and what not :)

hehe trust me For I am Sin :)

8. I hear you loud and clear!
Edited on Mon Nov-08-04 11:00 AM by JPace
Unfortunately most of the red state voters are not
interested in facts, they don't search out answers
for complicated problems. They don't read much other
than their bibles and they believe all the lies their
greedy politicians tell them. They watch Fox news and
think everyone else is lying, they don't socialize
with people of experience or wisdom and they don't
know anyone other those people like themselves.
Even when all the negatives of AWOL's policies start
shattering their lives, they will find a way
of believing its the Democrats who caused it.

God help us!

12. Excellent post
Wish I had your kind of gift with words, so yours will have to do for now. I especially like the 'bird' once it is out of the womb. Women's issues are heading back to where they were 50 years ago. It ain't pretty.

14. Oh...that was wonderful....
You put it so well. Another thing...why bring babies into the world to give them a false idea about Jesus and how to understand the love that he meant for them to feel...not by thinking of him as a cloud in the sky that is watching and waiting for them to make a mistake, but to know that it is the spirit inside of us, that shows Jesus's words. It isn't a book or a cloud , but it is in people, here and now. Someone help me to say what I want to say? Someone like you....Mrs. Moose

18. And, specific to Ohio (and not specific to Republicans, BTW)
Edited on Mon Nov-08-04 11:09 AM by nownow
When your granny and her boyfriend -- who live together under a commonlaw arrangement, because if they got married they'd be practically destitute because of the structure of the Social Security system and the way their pensions are put together ...

Or when you and your boyfriend/girlfriend -- living together because her irresponsible ex-husband can't be induced, even with the threat of prison, to pay his child support, and her federal benefits are the only guarantee the kids will have food ...

When somebody is in a really bad car wreck, or has a stroke, and your granny or you want to get into the ICU to see them, but some family member says, 'oh -- s/he's not a blood relative! No, they're not allowed to see my granny/daughter/son. Screw them, they're not married,' don't cry to me.

Don't cry to me that you saw 'gay marriage' and thought 'oh, gay marriage -- that's a sin!' and you didn't read the rest, which says that nobody who's not in a heterosexual legal marriage shall have any of the benefits or protections of a legal marriage, you thought that just meant gay couples.

Suck it up. And suck it up when that condo they bought together goes on the block and your granny has to come live with you because her name wasn't on it, and she has no protection under the law anymore because you voted for Issue 1 thinking you were only punishing 'those sinful gay people.'

Suck it up, baby. Granny likes your bedroom just fine.

28. To be perfectly fair...
...there are many people in the red states who did not vote for Bush. Think of Abraham begging God to spare a city if even 10 righteous people could be found.

I too feel anger toward the red states, but it must be tempered by this knowledge. My friends in Florida are absolutely sick about the outcome, particularly because it'll mean horrific consequences for the poor.

33. Thanks!
first time TWO people have nominated me for homepage. I'm humbled and honored. I just call 'em like I see 'em...I don't beat around the bush, (if you'll pardon the pun) and I don't hold back.

And the Red Voters...they deserve what they get now. And when...not if, but WHEN...it happens, they better not come crying to me, because my answer will be...you helped this to happen! I'm suffering BECAUSE OF YOU!! So don't ask for my sympathy now that the suffering has paid YOU a visit!

You voted Bush? then the blood is on your hands, too! Red Voter, I BLAME YOU!!
