I have (very few) friends who claim to be Republicans and align themselves with conservative and fundamentalist policies.
I try to have respect for these people and their viewpoints in the only way I know how to do that ---- I don't discuss politics with them.
However, as I watch the country disintegrate into a pile of stinking $hit at the hands of Republicans, my gloves are off.
Here is what I have to say to my "Republican" friends.
You support a plan and a party mired in evil.
You are spoon-fed rotting offal everyday, and you seem to like the taste.
You take no responsibility for finding truth --- which makes everything in your own life a lie.
You have no sense of justice.
You are intimately involved in the demise of a once great democracy.
You are too ignorant to understand any of the above.
You can still be my friend, but I will not mourn your dismay when the karma that is surely headed your way takes you down. In fact, I will remind you regularly of your own role in your own downfall, and tell you that you do not have my sympathy. In fact, watching your righteousness fail will be a richly satisfying entertainment for people who actually care about other human beings.
