The Politics of Republican Literalism

The Administration of George W. Bush with the prompting of Karl Rove and its evangelical minions robbed ALL Americans of guaranteed rights and protection under the law.

(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) - The immoral and wicked power behind the Republican Party is the cause of conduct by its followers who, believing what they are told, pretend to know what they do not.

Their raucous conduct is to them simply an obscene carnival and should not be taken seriously, for “they know not what they do;” the purpose of the Republican Holy See that encourages them, however, is deadly serious.

Its object is to regain Political control of government so it can continue to promote its misguided religious values based on the historical conduct of Roman Catholicism before Protestantism came into being.

Republicans use the Constitution as the equivalent of the Bible which permits no equivocation, so long as it serves their purpose.

Mike Huckabee claims that Palestine belongs to the Jews because “the Bible .[written by Jews] tells him so“. His belief is just as absurd as that of Rod Parsley who preaches that God’s will [?] is that American Christians destroy Islam; so what is America doing in Iraq?

The Administration of George W. Bush with the prompting of Karl Rove and its evangelical minions robbed ALL Americans of guaranteed rights and protection under the law.

Democrats view the Constitution as a road map fixed in its fundamentals but fluid in its interpretation when necessary to meet the demands of a changing society. The dogma of religion that led to the Reformation and to the rise of Protestantism, now is used by Republican leaders to encourage its base to act out their pronouncements in a spirit of disgusting depravity and un-Americanism.

Those of you who feel Maxine Water's statements below are okay with you and square with the U.S. Constitution, then ask yourself what would you say if it was a conservative advocating something similar about far left people being interviewed for "assembeling and speaking" (think 1st Amendment). This is pretty scary if other elected officals start agreeing with her. As divided as we are, we hopefully can count on people allowing the Constitution to be our main guiding force during these difficult times. Of course after 4 ACORN offices have been exposed for supporting child prostitution (on video and offical record), is Maxine trying to distract us from an organization that has given her hundreds of thousands of dollars as per the FEC? And that has literally close ties to every elected democrat? "AUDIO: Maxine Waters: Press Should Probe Conservatives For Racist Views Real Clear Politics ^ | September 16, 2009 | Real Clear Politics The Hill: Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that it's not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters, and that the media must look into their views. "I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed," Waters told the liberal Bill Press Radio show in a podcast. "I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers."
