Republicans adopted positions in their platform which are steeped in ideological purity that defines the party as angry, white, patriarchal, and paranoid.
Don't tell Paul Ryan, but many of his positions go against everything that Ayn Rand stood for.
Some of Ron Paul's otherwise socially liberal followers are an example of men who have turned their backs on reproductive rights.
The ghost of Christmas past haunted Ebeneezer Scrooge, and was 1/3 of the spirit that changed Scrooge around and it scared the Hell out of him, and apparently, the same is happening with Scott Walker.
No, I kid, I kid. The Republicans have come a long way. Sure, according to Rachel Maddow, “…the Republican Party is, without actually talking about it, this year, nominating a group of candidates for top of the ticket races that are more extreme on the issue of abortion than any other slate of top-of-the-ticket candidates in any year.”
The Nuns have came together to say they care MORE about pragmatic reality, MORE about helping people, MORE about correcting the unjust practices in the current healthcare system than they do obeying the patriarchs of the Catholic Church, who are cynically catering to political powers. This is a gift to humanity, the women’s movement, social justice, Democrats, and certainly Jesus if one believes.
