They'll be a minority for decades to come if they continue to act like
ignorant, lunatic cultists.

American republicans and "conservatives" have become a joke.



Is there anything more ignorant and more oblivious to history than the
modern GOP?
If you add Reagan's two-terms, Bush 1's term, and Bush 2's two-terms you
get 20 years of Republican rule in America. Not one time did the GOP ever
reign in spending or shrink government, but now they expect-- no demand-- a
Democratic administration must do it in order to not be spending us down
the road of socialism. There is nothing, not an ounce of evidence to point
to that suggests Republicans govern with their so-called "core
principles." In fact never in American history has government grew larger
and been more fiscally reckless than when the GOP was in power.
But more amazing is that during the Glorious Reign of George W. Bush, when
government grew at a faster rate than anytime since WWII and when spending
became more out of control than at any time in our history, did the GOP
ever once chide Bush for his policies or call it socialism. They praised
him as a bold and strong leader and spoke endlessly about his courage. It
is the epitome of being mentally brain dead to look upon history and
conclude the GOP stands for fiscal responsibility and small government.
And it is totally inexcusable to allow Sarah Palin and other right wing
extremists off the hook on this.

As if we needed more evidence of the ignorance surrounding the GOP, one
mustn't look any further than today's call from the right wing to boycott
GM Why not boycott AIG, or Lehman Brothers, or Fannie and Freddie or the 13
other banks Bush socialized?

The GOP is not against socialism or Big Government one bit. While in power
the GOP socialized more private industry and bailed out more private
companies than any political Party ever has in American history. They are
only against it when Democrats do it. And then want to pretend like
they've never done any such thing and are small government, fiscal
conservatives. Their delusion is a sickness brought about by forced
amnesia.
