Why The %&$@ Would Anyone Choose To Be Republican?

That's a rhetorical question.

I haven't been watching the GOP debates because I don't think they've come up with an actual candidate, though they do have some good cartoon politicians to watch. But, I hear, as we all do, what goes on at those debates and it make me wonder: Why The %&$@ Would Anyone Choose To Be Republican?

Remember that debate where the audience actually applauded when it was mentioned how many people have been murdered--And let's be real, it's murder, not execution. It's legalized murder--by the state of Texas under Rick Perry?

People applauding murder. That's the GOP?

Then remember how, when Ron Paul was given the scenario about the perfectly healthy man, who doesn't have health insurance, and suddenly becomes ill, and what should we do? And someone in the audience shouted, "Let him die"?

People cheering at someones death because they don't have health care? That's the GOP?

Well, then last night, Rick Santorum--and I'll get to that Frothy Effin' Mix in a jiffy--was presented with a YouTube question from a gay solider in Iraq about the repeal of DADT.

And the audience booed the soldier? That's the GOP?

They cheer death, and demand that people be ignored until they die, and boo an American soldier who's risking his life while they sit on their fat-assed wallets and grumble about class warfare because the rich might have to pay more taxes? That's the GOP? How is that right? How do people live with themselves? How do those GOP politicians not call out those audience members and their horrific behavior?

That's the GOP.

And now, to Frothy Mix.

During the debate, he was asked a question by Stephen Hill, a soldier in Iraq who, up until this week, had to "lie about who [he] was" in order to serve in the army. Santorum didn't care about that; no, he rambled on about sexual activity, because, you know The Gays only want to join the military and go to war and maybe die, so they can shower with other guys and have sex with other guts because, you know, they can't do that at any fucking gym in the country. It's only in the military.

Rick "Fucking Frothy Mix"Santorum: "I would say any type of sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military. The fact they are making a point to include it as a provision within the military that we are going to recognize a group of people and give them a special privilege to, and removing don't ask don’t tell. I think tries to inject social policy into the military. And the military's job is to do one thing: to defend our country..."

Moderator Megyn Kelly: "What would you do with soldiers like Stephen Hill?"

Rick "Fucking Frothy Mix"Santorum:  "What we are doing is playing social experimentation with our military right now. That’s tragic. I would just say that going forward we would reinstitute that policy if Rick Santorum was president. That policy would be re-instituted as far as people in, I would not throw them out because that would be unfair to them because of the policy of this administration. But we would move forward in conformity with what was happening in the past. Which was- sex is not an issue. It should not be an issue. Leave it alone. Keep it to yourself whether you are heterosexual or homosexual."

See, Rick "Fucking Frothy Mix"Santorum thinks it's about men having sex with other men, not men wanting to join the military and fight for us, and protect us,  and maybe die for their country. He doesn't see it as discrimination, just sex. Is it me, or is Rick "Fucking Frothy Mix" Santorum a little too interested in man-on-man sex?

Then today, no doubt as the press heated up on him and his blatant homophobia, Frothy "condemned" those who booed, saying: "I condemn the people who booed that gay soldier. That soldier is serving our country. I thank him for his service to our country. I'm sure he is doing an excellent job. I hope he is safe. I hope he returns safely, and does his mission well. I have to admit I seriously did not hear those boos. Had I heard them, I certainly would have commented on them."

It might have looked like he meant it, had he "condemned" those people at the time they booed, but he was too busy ranting about the man-sex.


And asshats to those that booed a soldier and wanted to let a man die and applauded state sanctioned murder. That's the GOP.

You want old time GOPers to hang in there. I think there are a lot of GOPers appalled at the tea party just like they were appalled when the evangelists made a takeover run. As a two party systems we need each party to be level headed. I don't want to hand over everything to one party. We are much safer with two parties. Let's hope the GOP gets back on track and the level headed among them find their voice. Don't let the nutburgers speak for you.

Why is it always the anti gay-side bringing the issue of sex into it? It's not as if anyone wants to imagine what on earth Tony Perkins et al. are doing with their respective wives or husbands at night.

In response to his comment about "sex is not an issue"--Somehow they seem to miss the fact that DADT makes sex an issue. And allowing people to be open is not a "special privilege". I'm not an aggressive person, but I sure would like to slap a few people! (But I doubt their brains could take the jolt.)

I still think Rick Santorum is kinda hot.
