It has been my observation that 90% of republicans fall into 1 or more of the following categories.

 

1) I was born into a wealthy and important family. I am great because of superior genes and proper up bringing. Government should favor me because I am from wealthy stock.

 

2) I am a self made millionaire. I have been driven by greed for power and money and I want more. 40 million isn't enough, 80 million isn't enough, I must have more. I do not want to pay hardly any taxes because I will then have to settle for the 80 Ft. luxury boat and not the 120 Ft. boat my neighbor has. I don't want government to tax me. I want all of my money.

 

3) I hate ALL of them. I either hate the Jews, or the blacks, or the gays or the Hispanics. I don't want my taxes paying for all those lazy, ignorant blacks and Hispanics who would rather lay at home and watch soap operas rather than find a job. I hate them I hate them I hate them.

 

4) I am perfect. I have a wife and children and we go to church. We have the right values and go to the right church. We only associate with the right kind of people (People like us) and we believe that anybody would doesn't share our views is wrong. So if you don't believe that abortion is wrong, then government must show you the errors of your way. If you don't believe that your children should pray in school with our perfect children, then government should show you the light. If you don't believe that our laws should not be derived from our religions personal beliefs, then you should not run for office. If you do not believe that homosexuality is a mortal sin, then you should go to hell. Government is here to enforce our moral code.

 

The rest of republicans fall into the self hate category. They are the Clarence Thomas's, the Mel Martinez's and the Condelisa Rices of the world. "I have always wanted to be white. I hate who I really am. I hate that I am black or Latino so much that I am going to dedicate myself to doing as much as I can to hurt those blacks and Latinos who make me look bad. I will prove how white I am. I will be whiter than the whitest person. How can I do that???? Hmmmm..... I know. I will join the party for the white people and I will shout white power to the heavens.

 

If I am Hispanic, I will tell the world that I am a white Hispanic. I will declare that I am a Spanish Latin or Italian Latin. I will never ever mention My Taino, Aztec or Mayan roots and I will never ever mention that grandmother who's hair is just a little too curly/kinky and who's skin is a bit darker than everyone else's.

 

Every chance I get I will champion the anti-minority banner. I will dedicate my life to hurting any legislation that helps minorities. Maybe then they wont notice that I am black or Hispanic too.

I think you more or less nailed it! ;) But you missed the gays who want to be thought straight. They figure if they become Republicans nobody will notice that they're actually homosexuals!!!

 

Another difference I've noted: There are certainly rich Democrats, as there are rich Republicans. Rich Democrats seem to remember where they came from, contribute back to their communities, and work to make it possible for other people to climb up the ladder. Rich Republicans are like the ones you describe. They want it all for themselves and want to pull up the ladder to make sure nobody else gets rich and into the club! Obviously, not all Republicans are rich, but it's the rich who control the party and who merely tolerate the grubby masses because there aren't enough rich voters to put them into power. But if any of the grubby masses try to move into their privileged enclaves, they'd better not expect a warm welcome!

Well, since you qualified your posts as your observations rather than fact, then one can't contest it. Except to say those aren't my observations, and that your post really sounds like the typical classist, elitist totally inaccurate bs that is usually spouted the far, far leftwing liberals.

 

Only Republicans are racist, afterall. If you're a minority and a Republican, then your failure to be a Democrat most definitely means that you're a "whitey wannabe" Uncle Tom, Uncle Brucie or Tio Tomas out to keep your fellow minorities impoverished and subjugated.

5) I made it through high school, or at least most of the way, and I support the concept of social promotions because otherwise we would have 21-year-olds playing football. My education wasn't that good, but then neither was my teachers' -- some of them make less money than we do, on our family income of a truck-driver salary and a part-time check from Wal-Mart. I occasionally visit a big city, or maybe just drive through one, but in our county density is a word usually applied to people and not the population. All gay men are child molesters, and I hope they cut the balls off anyone caught offering my son a Dr Pepper.

An extreme case of stereotyped thinking. The cause of the increasing lack of civility in politics is the liberal-democrat belief that anyone who disagrees with them is evil and stupid. This is because liberals are people who have a compulsive need to feel morally and intellectually superior. By demonizing those who disagree with them, they enhance their feeling of superiority, and the more severly they demonize, the more superior they feel. Liberalism is not a philosohy or a way of thinking, it is a matter of psychology and should be considered a personality disorder. It results in very bazarre ways of thinking. As an example, liberals believe that good people see nothing wrong with killing healthy, viable babys by sucking out their brains at the moment of birth, and liberals believe that those who disagree are evil. Not a mentally healthy way of looking at things.

SouthBchBtm, you seem to be Hispanic. As you know most of the Hispanics have come into the country illeglly and within the last few decades. I have a hard time understanding why the income of Americans should be confiscated by the government for the benefit of illegals or their children. Perhaps you could explain. In addition you seem full of hatred and rage against fully one half of the Americans. Would you not be more happy simply to go back? You try to speak on behalf of blacks, but they are not at all in the same situation. Their ancestors came here hundreds of years ago and aginst their will. They do not have the option of going back.

Oh crap, I thought it was the Conservative Republicans who thought themselves morally supreior. I must be confused.

Again I'm confused. I thought that was the exact strategy of the conservatives and NRA-types.

Oh thank goodenss for that news. My Liberalism is a personality disorder! Wanting liberty and justice for all is now a personality disorder. Do you think that I could be treated for this?

This is the most ridiculous thing that I have ever seen written on this board. Where do you get such ludicrous information. That is not true, and in fact it has never happened. Merlin, under which rock do you get such mis-information?

 

and liberals

No again you have that confused with the conservatives and the right-wing religious nuts. Merlin where do you live, and what do you read. This is the craziest shit I have ever heard.

 

And Merlin, if you are such a conservative Republican, how do you justify supporting a man who wishes to deny you your most basic rights. Not only are you very naive, but you are really filled with some very twisted self-loathing internalized homophobia. When I get the therapist who can treat my Liberalism, I will give you a reference.

I am trying to understand your hatred and rage SoBeach. It is not as though Republicans do not pay taxes, we pay, and pay and pay, but it is never enough. What percent of income in total taxes (income fed and state, real estate, sales, Soc Sec etc)do you think would be enough for a Republican to pay? Is there any limit to what you think the government should confiscate? Or should the government take it all? I really would like to know what people like you think should be happening?

How about, enough to pay for all the spending legislation that Bush has signed?

A balanced budget, perhaps, like Clinton gave us?

Well first, I believe all Americans should pay taxes. Not just the Republicans. Second, how do you think our country is supposed to operate without any taxes??? We live in one of the largest and the riches nation in the world. It costs money to run such an operation. Part of what makes this country great are the goods and services our government provides. Safe guarding our way of life does cost money.

 

What the Democrats have so clearly articulated is the difference between the two parties is their opinion of who should flip the bill. The Republicans believe the working man should pay most of the bill while the Democrats believe the rich should.

 

Are you suggesting that we do away with all taxes? That is a very socialistic point of view. Maybe you should run for President as the Communist candidate next time. You can run on the platform of no taxes, no wages. Everyone just do their job and government will provide everything free of charge.

Too bad all the Republicans you know fit into those Categories and too bad you feel that way about so many Americans. Most of my Family are Republicans. They are Rural Farm people that would give a person that needs it, the shirt off their back and NEVER ask their political party. When a neighbor is ill they chip in to help harvest the crop, bail the hay, bring in food, sit at the Hospital with their Family, whatever it takes to help out. They are poor and THEY are great paople and yes they are Republicans. Too bad you hate them, I am sure they would not hate you. Maybe you need to meet more Republicans, your world seems too narrow to me.

Oh, puh-leeze!!! Even Bush pointed out in his debates that Republicans hire tax lawyers and accountants to get them out of paying taxes, leaving it to the working stiff (who are mostly Democrats and can't benefit from clever special credits and other loopholes) to pay the bill. And I'm sure that if your tax bill were reduced to 99 cents a year you'd STILL be bitching and moaning. You just want it ALL without having to pay a cent. You'd have loved life in the old Soviet Union, which worked that way.

Their fair share. If there weren't so many tax dodges especially designed for rich Republicans, everyone would contribute their fair share and it would most likely be possible to lower the rates for EVERYBODY. After all, there wouldn't be any need for the poor to shoulder the tax burden of the rich, because everyone would pay. Unlike now, where there are still thousands of filthy rich individuals who pay NOTHING in taxes each year.

I do not hate all Republicans and never indicated as such. "Some of my best friends are Republicans." LOL!!! I had to go there. hehehehe

 

I do not doubt that your family are good people. Certainly from your description of them, they sound like people I would enjoy knowing. As a rule, there is always an exception to every rule. If they do not fall into any of these categories, then they must be the rare exception.

 

However, the Republican party is stocked full of people who fit one or more of these categories.

 

Just out of curiosity, have you ever asked your family why they like being republicans? If they are poor people, I am shocked that they support the republican's agebda of taxing the working class. I'd be interested in hearing their response.

I'll pay your taxes this year if you can show us where Bush did this in the debates. He does say such nonsense in the standard campaign speech he reads to ignorant followers, where fact-checkers are few and far between.

 

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, paid $628,401 in federal taxes on income of $5 million in 2003. She saved $523,042 from a tax cut on dividends enacted by President George W. Bush.

No one has ever said that there should be no taxes and Republicans pay more than their share, but no matter how much they pay the Democrats always want more. It is the Democrats who want to exempt the lower middle class from taxation. Poor people already do not pay income taxes, while the top 1% of income receivers pay 30% of the tax. If the Democrats had their way only Republicans would pay any tax. Kerry wants to raise income taxes, while his wife shelters her massive income by putting much of it into municipal bonds, the income of which is largely tax exempt, so she only pays 12.5% Kerry, of course is not proposing to begin the taxation of municipal bond income, because of course, that would hit too close to home.

Merlin baby, who is running the contry into record debt? The Republican President and the Republican Congress. This is completely irresponsible. They always call Democrats "tax and spend", well at least the Democrats will stand up and pay for what they do. The Republicans have just become "tax-give-backs and spend". The nation with record debt is not a strong country.

That the biggest heap of horseshit that I've read in some time.. What's funny is that the few bits that have a remote resemblance to coherent statements apply to the republicans to a T!
