Oh, how some politicians love to hide behind the Bible, or present themselves as pure, put forth the face of an honest man or woman, a Chrisitan of the first order. Do you actually know anyone like that in politics? Conservatives and Republicans tend to lean on that false front more than anyone.
In Wisconsin, where we are about to have recall elections for a number of state legislators, the Republicans are actually running candidates on the Democrat ticket. Yep, died in the wool Republicans running as Democrats just to screw up the democratic election process. And they are not only doing it with a straight face, they are doing it in the construct of honesty! How low can you go? In other words, use any method you can as a Republican to stop a Democrat from being legitimately elected, even if it means lying and misrepresenting yourself. This is ethics and morals turned on their head, to say nothing of conducting a scam and a sham in an election process. Is shame vacant from the Republican mind? What next, using black shoe polish on one's skin to run as an African-American? Cross-dressing to run as a woman? Lying about one's military record [oops, that's already been done].
What does the Republican Party stand for? Deception? Lying? Sabotaging the democratic process?
When George W. Bush and Dick Cheney ascended to the head of their administration, I thought it was a blip, a mistake, a temporary abomination and that the nation would correct its obvious mistakes. But they re-elected these dolts! And now, miraculously, people are being told that all this economic mess did not happen until Georgie and Dicky left office. Is there any sanity left? Ignorant G.W. and sleazy Dick were two of the most heretical and double-dealing men to ever ascend to high office in the U.S. And their Party has chosen to move on with their method of deception and lies.
If you need anymore proof that the Grand Old Party of the past, a Party with honor and dignity, is dead then you are whistling Dixie. Today's Republican Party is hell-bent on doing the bidding of the wealthiest Americans and the biggest corporations, and to hell with the middle class and lower class. You have been duped into giving these greedy charlatans what they want. And America is going over a cliff. I hope you're wearing a parachute.
