The Consistent Stupidity of the Republican Party

If there is one constant all Americans can count on, it's the continued bad ideas that the Republican Party keeps proposing.

Remember invading Iraq?  My son served in the army, fighting a huge tank battle, and returning home damaged and never the same.  For what?  Most Americans wrongly believe this was payback for 9/11.  It was not.  It was to keep the military/industrial complex going; it was for making billion dollar profits for Halliburton and other corporations, and it was wagging the dog at its absolute finest.

So now the Republican party is calling for boots on the ground to fight ISIS.  ISIS came into being because of our middle eastern manipulations to begin with.  How will killing and maiming more U.S. military personnel change anything?  It won't.  This is why I hate history......the ignorant never learn from it.  And the Republican Party is ignorant.  That's putting it nicely.  These people are just plain stupid.  Someone isn't making the kind of profits they want to make.  Killing a few thousand American servicemen and women will change that.  Is that what America is all about?  I realize the greed and excess of our country is first and foremost in importance to people like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, the list goes on.  But what we're all about is based on lies and proof that these methods simply do not work.  If you keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, that is the definition of insanity. If you don't learn from history, you're doomed to repeat it. 

In the age of information, to remain ignorant is a personal choice that too many Americans are making.  There is a grand plan to keep the populace of our country misinformed and stupid.  The dumbing down of America has long been documented, and the result is, our country is a disaster, the planet is on the verge of destruction, and the Republicans rejoice in these results because it generally will end with profit for someone.  You can bet it won't be you.

But leaving politics out of it, if this is the current human condition, then we, as humans, should do our part and become extinct.  We've neither solved any real problems, nor have we improved the world in any humanitarian, lasting sense.  We're dinosaurs.  The planet will get rid of us because we  are just too stupid to survive .  We're born into a pristine garden, which we're hell bent on destroying.  This is the path we are on.  Perhaps this is the end result of evolving from apes.  I hope for alien intervention, because there's bloody little intelligent life down here.  And the worst of the worst are members of the Republican Party.

I guess we should be happy. We may be getting dumber by the minute but at least we are still well armed and Christian; a great combination. Every one of the current GOP nominees makes me sick; grifters, charlatans, hypocrites and fools. If the the normal people in the US would just go out and vote, perhaps it could be turned around...........BTW. It's good to see you writing again.

???? -- well-armed Christians? Isn't that an oxymoron?
