I just got a call from a so called “Conservative” group playing on the general populations’ ignorance.

Right of the bat they are calling “socialism.”  Then they say that President Obama raised the national debt to 14 trillion.  Funny how they ignored the fact that under G.W. Bush the national debt doubled and ended up around 10 trillion dollars.  They also pushed how Obama was the worst president since Carter.  While not a Carter fan, I do recall G. W. Bush’s ratings being pretty damn low.

And of course, they cried, “MUSLIMS!!!!”  In my view all religions are dangerous.  All of them.

They also mentioned how fat the government has grown.  Oddly enough, they didn’t mention how fat it got under G.W. Bush and Company.  Nor did they mention that G.W. Bush also signed the bailout in the fall of 2008.

When I mentioned that I voted for Obama and liked the man, and that the government got “fat” under G.W.Bush, there was also a frivolous war, and how under the Patriot Act, they wiped their asses with the Constitution.

   They quickly said thank you and hung up.

And all they were asking for was a hundred or two dollars to run a full page ad in US Today…..

  I use to be a Republican until the 1992 National Convention. I walked out saying to myself, "The Republican Party has left me...."  The religious nut cases had taken it over....or so they thought.

   I knew the party leadership was using them.  The "Religious right" had money, Political Action Committees, and a block of votes.  And the Republicans used them.  Even the first head of the Faith Based Initiative said they had been used.  Funny how it took them almost 20 years to figure that out...
