The New Face Of The GOP : Sarah Palin And Michele Bachmann Together In Minneapolis! :(

The Republican Party has become a party more and more image driven by two women, who have become highly controversial by their words and actions.

Sarah Palin, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee, and Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Congresswoman, have both contributed to an atmosphere of deceit, lies, fear mongering, confrontation, and extreme right wing propaganda!

Sarah Palin talked about “death panels”, and Michele Bachmann conjured up images of “internment camps”. Both women have done everything possible in the past two years to divide America, and to distort and destroy the Presidency of Barack Obama by any means necessary, showing an amazing lack of ethics in their false attacks, and showing no concern or solutions for the many domestic problems we face!

Both women also have shown an unbelievable lack of understanding of our basic civil liberties, and a belligerent attitude toward other nations. It could be said that what both have advocated borders on fascism and nativism, marking them as being as dangerous as other fringe spokesmen have been in past periods of American history!

Neither one contributes anything positive in public affairs, but rather sets out to confuse and obstruct!

Seeing pictures and video of the two women together, it makes one think that this is a great opportunity for the Democrats to promote commercials designed to defeat Bachmann for her congressional seat and to undermine the GOP for congressional races and the Presidential campaign of 2012.

While it is great to see more women in American politics, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are NOT an asset to the Republican Party. Rather, they are an albatross around the Republicans’ necks, but they will offer a great opportunity to the Democratic party nationally, as well as locally.

We will see many commercials starring Sarah and Michelle, and hopefully, we will soon see both disappear on the horizon of American politics! We deserve better than this!

Conservative Propaganda Against Health Care Reform Leads To Death Threats Against Democrats: Time To Cease And Desist! :(

The poisonous atmosphere promoted by talk radio, Fox News Channel, and many Republican spokesmen has now led not just to verbal epithets and spitting and angry telephone and email messages, but also to real death threats that have caused the FBI to arrest a man in Washington State for endangering the life of Senator Patty Murray!

Also, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has given information to the FBI about direct threats against her, and she faced Tea Party activists who attempted a disruption of a Town Hall meeting in Broward County.

And the vile, vicious, threatening email against African American Congressman John Lewis of Georgia, one of the heroes of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, also are an alarm bell that the opposition to health care, which has spewed forth propaganda and lies for a year now, MUST cease and desist, as the danger of violence has reached a new stage that demands responsibility by politicians and media!

What will finally convince these right wingers that they are sowing the seeds of bloodshed and violence? 🙁 Will it take the assassination of politicians to silence these characters, who only care about their own enrichment and advancement, and not the good of the nation? 🙁

As has been stated before, enough is enough! Let’s promote what unites us, instead of what divides us! 🙁
