The Republican/Tea Party/Right-wing Control & Manipulate Their Base By Pulling G-Stings
GOD... GUNS... & GAYS
When signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Johnson turned to Sargent Shriver, who was sitting next to him and said "We just lost the South." That was the moment when the mass exodus of the last remaining Dixie Democrats happened. They leapt in the arms of the Republican Party and the transformation of the two parties occurred. Republicans were overtaken by the "conservatives" (code name for selfish, backwards bigots) and the Democrats became the new liberals, the stand for civil rights and progressive Government.
1%ers like the Koch brothers & corporations fund the right wing campaign of hate for one simple reason. When people are filled with hate they are easy to manipulate.
The truth is that for some it is not, nor has it ever been about facts, honesty or truth. Logic is wasted on them. For you cannot reason with the unreasonable.
They claim Voter ID Laws are needed to stop the nonexistent voter fraud problem. But Common Sense Gun Laws that could save thousands of lives are not.
They say women should not have the right to make their own healthcare decisions.
They have called President Obama incompetent & dishonest. But found George Bush competent & truthful.
They are inconsolable over Benghazi. Yet have found a way to live with the 53 people killed in the 12 attacks on our Embassies under Bush. Along with the almost 3,000 men, women & children who died horrific deaths on 9/11. And the well over 900,000 & counting who’ve died in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Many of you have posed the question -"Why do they continue to vote against their own best interest?"
There is a portion of the population who are tribal by nature. Who are only comfortable around others they consider to be mentally, physically & spiritually like themselves. In some cases a feeling of superiority is derived from the low rating of those outside of their “Tribe.”
They thrive on the us vrs them mentality. Give them someone or something to hate and they are as happy as a hog in slop. And as long as you are seen to be a member of their “Tribe" almost anything you do will be accepted.
Which is why the Republican/Tea Party uses cultural, regional & religious differences to widen the divide between Americans. Republicans have concocted a “Tribal Cocktail.” This vile Tea is a mixture of False Religion, Bigotry, Fear & Lies. It makes their base vote against all they hold dear. Their Families, their Country, their GOD, & Themselves.
Conditioned to hate, they are the ultimate single issue voters. Which is why these very same people did nothing during the Bush years. But now feel the need to wear tea bags & wave snake flags.
Hate is a powerful emotion. Unless kept in check hate can cause an avalanche of destruction. It wreaks havoc on relationships, breaks up families & even takes away innocent lives. With hate dark thoughts of revenge and destruction can cloud the mind. Hate not only harms the people around us; it also erodes our own character. And can even destroy Nations.
