David over at Shamanaqua has another excellent post up about the myths of the GOP.

Here's a little taste.

The Mythology of the GOP

For decades, the popular view of the Republican Party has been the 'Daddy Party', the party of responsibility, frugality, and measured, conservative advance. For decades, the popular view of UFO's has been little green men from some distant world bent on the destruction of our world.

I put more credence in the little green men.


Oh, they want to keep the name and all the old stuff in the museums, like the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Jeffersonian Bible, etc. The Republican Party wants to gut the American system of government. They want to bring us back to the old ways of feudal Europe with all the modern toys and goodies.

The Modern Republican Party wants to increase the chasm that exists between those who have lots and those who have little. Those who have none are expendable.


People like Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove know that the only way to get people to support them again is to scare the living shit out of them. The current economic downturn has the potential to be that object of fear. It's a 'godsend' to them. (to corrupt a saying) By scaring people into electing their chosen toadies and supporting draconian measures to 'protect the American way of life'; they hope to put the final nails in Free Democratic America's coffin.

Now, go read the rest. There's much, much more!

My thanks for the linkage, Eddie.

I am always in your debt (and most of the banks too)

Glad to do it, David.

Just trying to make sure everyone stays informed.
Just 'cause we won last November doesn't mean the 'war' is over.
We've gotta keep battling to keep the neocons in check.

David does have 'em pegged. The party of fear and greed. And as I always say, without hypocrisy they would be nothing.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Yeah he does, Shea.

The GOP is the epitome of hypocrisy.
