Why am I not Surprised?
As if we needed any more proof that Republicans and their owners the TEA Party have no morals, and no concern about what is right or wrong, get this.
The TEA party, Jim DeMint, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum are 100% behind the campaign of Todd Akin in Missouri. Remember him? He’s the brain dead Republican candidate for the senate who said that “pregnancy rarely happens in cases of legitimate rape.”
There is one reason, and only one reason they are behind him and offer full support. This is what the ‘brain trust’ said; “An Akin victory in Missouri is central to Republican’s goal of winning a senate majority.” They care not where he stands on the all important issues. This is similar to Mitch McConnell’s statement to his party in the first year of President Obama’s administration; “Our only goal is to ensure that Obama is a one term President”.
Okay, working people of America, and all women, this is additional evidence to once again prove that the Republican Party does not care about you or the welfare of our country. It’s not only the 47%, it’s more like 80% of all Americans who will not be represented by the political right wing.
Akin’s opponent, Claire McCaskill, was behind in the polls before his ridiculous comments. With millions of dollars pouring into Akin’s war chest in the last two weeks, she holds a one point lead. McCaskill has been a champion of women and the middle class in her first term as Senator. We need her. She cares about the country and all of its citizens. Akin is simply another member of the “party of dumb”. He fits well with Palin, Bachmann, O’Donnell, Angle, and Ran Paul.
I say it once again. We do not need ordinary or even ‘sub-ordinary’ legislators in Washington. We need extraordinary, hard-working, loyal men and women to do what is right. What we must eliminate are the power mongers such as DeMint, Gingrich, and Santorum. It shouldn’t matter who has the majority in which legislative body. Politics has ruined any effort by those who care and are willing to reach compromise to solve our nation’s problems. If the people we elect refuse to make an effort to take action on the issues for which they were elected, we do not stand a chance.
I am just plain disgusted. Our country is broken, and there’s no way to fix it if political parties are more important than those of us they were elected to represent. If you truly believe in God, pray hard, and hope He isn’t as disgusted with our country as I am.
