I was watching the presidential candidates debate last night and I like this stuff, even though I cannot bring about change nor can I vote, but I learn so much just watching the debate and how each candidate stands his or her ground by making a spin on anything they are hit with. Here are few thoughts I should keep for myself, since only two people read the blog. I am still keeping it to myself.
The leftists do not want war and human casualties because they want to save lives. But they are still in favor of "choice" to destroy a human life. Republicans, on the other hand, are comfortable with wars and causalities; the death of civilians is not a big deal! They nevertheless are willing to go to war to save human lives by wanting to ban abortion! As long the Republications do not know the civilians or do not care for them, it is alright to kill them. For the leftists, as long as they do not know the baby or the human embryo, they are o.k. with the destruction of life. Both parties are indifferent to the death of those unknown to them (unborn babies and non-American civilians). In the same way in which the right-wing dehumanizes their enemies, the leftists dehumanize unborn babies! After all, we all have met individuals in our life that we wished would have been aborted. I am sure you can name a few! In the same token, other great leaders could have been missed!
The right-wing is against abortion in general. However, they are keener on aborting white babies. But if you want to abort minority babies who in some views are prone to be criminals, this is a lesser evil (The book Freakonomics raises similar points)). The right-wing is also against welfare, cutting those in need on one hand, and on the other, asking those such as poor families and teen pregnancies to have the baby anyway! While we are at it, Republicans do not mind sending young American men and women (whose income is supposed to pay for retirement of others) in harms way. Democrats are indifferent to aborning babies (those who will also contribute to the social security.)
Once you have the baby, the right wing will not assure that the baby will be healthy because they are against universal health care. The leftists do not want you to have the baby, but they will make sure that the unborn is healthy, but remains unborn! Corporations when hiring, will pay you minimum wage and restrict any health benefits, but hey, you can still have that baby! All courtesy of the nuts on both sides. So while The leftists do not want you to have the baby, but they want to make it easier to have one anyway, The right-wing want you to have the baby, but make it more difficult to have one and keep it healthy.
The leftists are against tax breaks for the rich. They want to tax them to death, but they are against outsourcing when companies take their business somewhere else. The right-wing focus on religion and freedom of religion, but such politicians are the first to denounce someone else for practicing a religion other than their own. The leftists are fine with any religion and even freedom from religion, because for the leftists as long as you believe in global warming!
The right-wing like big guns in every hand; they mind it when violate their privacy by doing a background check on them, but they do not mind you violating privacy on all Americans to catch the terrorist! The leftists are the other way around!
I think it is much easier for a Republican to get tangled in a scandal, than for a Democrat. The right-wing always claim to raise the moral bar (abortion, homosexuality, money laundering), but when they get caught in a scandal (which does happen), they ask you to lower the bar for them since they were the ones to ask for the moral bar to be high. The leftists will make a point and say that's why assuming the best of people is not the right idea.
The right-wing is against assisted suicide, the leftists are indifferent. The only difference is once you see the bill from your health care provider; you want to commit any kind of suicide. And the right-wing wants you to have any gun to do the job! But hey, if you do not want to commit suicide, the right-wing has made it harder for you to declare bankruptcy! Do not worry, you can still enlist in the Army; they are always hiring!
Freedom of speech with the leftists protects even those who solicit sex from minors and those who incite others for hatred. Even though the right-wing are the ones who are most likely to need that kind of Freedom of Speech protection as conservative radio hosts have shown in the past years!
The leftists do care what the world thinks of America, but they would come to the defense of individuals who do America's image great harm such as Hollywood stereotypes! America’s random military action rallies the everyone, but Hollywood insults to cultures and religions hurts America’s friends—the intellect. The right-wing is fine with Hollywood stereotypes as long at the Dixie Chicks are quiet!
The leftists are for labor unions, but ultimately they end up harming them because sooner or later the industries with greedy union will most likely to fail because they cannot compete!
The leftists are always for human rights, but they overlook any human rights violations by Israel towards the Palestinians and Lebanese! The right-wing wants all Jews to go back and establish Israel; they even fund such efforts to do so. But ultimately, they want them all dead in the Lake of Fire!
The leftists continue to favor Affirmative Action, even though it is a medicine that generates its own diese. The right-wing is not sure what Affirmative Action is, but their action does not indicate any affirmative fair hearing practices.
The right-wing does not like international agreements and seldom do they enforce them, but the only time they will recall such treaties is when they screw up. The leftists are for all for U.S. intervention in the world as long as this intervention is not a military one. But most of the bad reputation the U.S. gets is from such half measures.
The right-wing objects to aborting kids born into bad families or bad circumstances to be aborted, they would rather having them be born, grow up, struggle, commit a crime, go to jail, commit a bigger crime and then be sentenced to death. And they will hang you! The leftists on the other hand, want the baby not to be born, no chance of living, maybe this kid will grow up and be something else, but if it happens that this baby grows up and turns into a criminal, the leftists will not want this person executed!
So the leftists might not want you here in the first place, but if you make it to this world, they will hand you health care to make sure you stay with us, unless you wanted assisted suicide, they wouldn't mind. The right-wing on the other hand want you to be part of our world, but if you are here, and happen to be healthy, with them, it's much harder for you to go to school and if you mess up, they will send you back to where you come from. However, if you do not mess up, you may die in a war they think it is worth fighting1! So you are screwed either way
The leftists want to give illegal immigrants driving lenience, but the right-wing does it out of fear that illegal will be prone to be involved in a hit and run. But the right-wing does not mind people with guns not having a thorough background check! Guns do not kill people drivers do!
The right-wing wants a smaller government and they want this small government to crack on illegal immigrants and abortion clinks! The leftists want a larger government that does nothing other than take your gun, but they expect this huge government not to interfere in your privacy! The irony of the leftists is in having a smaller army to protect the bigger government they desire. The right-wing wants a bigger army to protect the smaller government they want. The leftists want to save the world by stopping pollutants that will eventually kill us. The right-wing wants to have more kids and humans to live in a planet in peril!
Democrats seem not to mind growth in spending, Republicans turn a deaf ear to growth in deficit. Republicans via tax cuts do not mind giving out money to people who might not deserve; Democrats want to hand out money with their entitlement programs.
Finally, Republicans will let you keep more of your income by taxing you less, but they will want you to send your kid to the a ware zone. Democrats, will do the exact opposite, take more of your money by asking for more in taxes, but they will let you keep your kids at home! So which one do you value your kids or money?
