GOP No Longer Party of Lincoln

Leave a comment

Hello zobopians! I’m all for freedom of politics and all but sometimes you have to “kick out the JAMS!”

In today’s rant I’m going to warn the world of fundamentalism. Political and religious. The G.O.P. (Grand Old Party) of today is not legitimate. The Republican party today belongs to the theocrats and the phony sanctimonious shameless power-seekers. Fear and bigotry are their watch words. You’ll hear a Republican claim that they are the party of Abraham Lincoln. Lie! The Republican party no longer adheres to its abolitionist founding, which was the pursuit of freedom for all its citizens. The G.O.P. has become a fundamentalist political party that pursues the restriction of freedom for certain members of our society like women and people of color, as well as the L.G.B.T. community.

I guess this is what happens when the next generation doesn’t pick up where the last generation leaves off.  The next generation, in this case Baby Boomers, hijack a political party and go off in a fundamentalist direction.  The previous generation of Republicans actually were for more equality for women but now they’ve been waging war against women since the 1970’s.  That sounds like a 5th column of women and minority haters.  Fundamentalism in any religion will set society back who knows how far.

Until neXt time…

The Real Socialist CREEPs

Leave a comment

Greetings fellow world zobopians! For any one who’s been reading this blog should have figured out by now I’m a ‘little’ Left-Of-Center in my political outlook. Because these so-called Conservatives, Right-wing Republicans do not represent the party of Abraham Lincoln. That legacy ended when those southern Dixiecrats bigots high-jacked the G.O.P. in the early 1960’s. That was called the “Southern Strategy”. Today’s modern day conservative cries out that left style Liberals are socialist. The power of language can truly be used to confuse average citizens. Critical thinking is very important when ones life hangs in the political balance. The slick-n-slimy G.O.P. can get hard working people to vote against their own economic self-interest. And look what they have to show for it: No jobs. College debt with no prospect for a job.

The following statement shows real critical thinking:

One of the ironies of American politics is that our conservative party, the Republicans, is a mirror image, structurally, of Western Europe’s Socialist and Communist parties.” **

This statement was said by columnist Richard Reeves during George H. W. Bush’s 1988 Presidential campaign. [And yet he won anyway.] Obviously no one learned or listened back then. Nowadays, again, it’s always some right-wing ideologue calling poor people or Liberals “socialist” and yet it’s the Republicans and conservatives who are the CREEPing socialists.

WAKE UP AMERICANS!  There’s still a Republican war on!

*More zobop commentary: For all the sanctimonious Pro-Life citizens of America, doesn’t that make you/them Pro-Sex? Sex and women’s reproductive topics shouldn’t be awkward and discomforting by people who claim to be so full of morality.

…and…
For all the hypocritical citizens who want government out of your life, then don’t let misogynist policy turn over reproductive rights to the government! This means you REPUBLICANS!

Happy New Year fellow zobopians!  It took me some time to get my blogging juices flowing for 2015.  And the best I can do is a photo opportunity.  Anything for the topic of the minimum wage for the working poor.  Let’s face it, anybody working at minimum wage is poor. That’s the way the “powers that be” want it.
