REPUBLICAN BRAND: THE MEAN-SPIRIT

Soon everyone will see just how much negative and mean-spirited energy that the Republicans are capable of. The rash of ads after the announcement of the Obama-Biden ticket are just a beginning. This is not shrewd, clever, noble or decent. This is very misleading; as during a primary in which many are competing for the same job, there will be these type of statements made. Biden did not have a laundry list of criticisms, he had but one. Also, when did the Republicans become an authority on Freudian slips, deeming human error a flagship of Sigmund Freud? Desperate. During the two years that Senator Obama has won a hard-fought battle against Senator Clinton, Obama has gotten plenty of additional experience. He has been above the fray, not because he is an elitist, but because he is a Christian. There was a time when the Republicans were taken over by the “Religious Right” of Jerry Falwell’s design. George W. Bush used this same base to make his cronies wealthier.  

McCain saw that he was getting nowhere in his earlier bids for the Whitehouse, so he kissed the rings of the reigning powers that be, in order to get the Republican nomination.  He wants to be president so very badly. Has anyone ever examined his penchant for blantant envy? Why so many ads about Obama being a celebrity? His strategy team is just as reptilian as he has become. They will cut a throat without batting an eye. They will not win for all of their “clever” tactics nor will the media network, Fox News, which has been annexed by the Whitehouse of George W. Bush. All of them have sold their souls, yet continue to feel justified- or do they feel backed into a corner by the invading “Obama-machine?”

“We can’t have gays, stem cell research or abortions! ” they cry. Meanwhile, while they hide behind the gospels, they are really a cult of nasty, mammon-worshippers. They have no respect for their fellow human beings and for this reason, they have made America a much poorer nation, not only in fact, but in deed. All of the down and dirty laundry of the Republican party and its surrogates shall be exposed from the utmost to the least most. Don’t those sitting in their churches see that most of the “building programs” of their churches have been “bridges to nowhere?” What good does it do to not “…love your neighbor as you love yourself?” All of the works done under this banner shall be exposed to the light of moral truth.  With all of the Republicans who have been in charge since Roe vs. Wade, there has not been any over turning of this piece of legislation, although most of the elected officials of the Republican party (since that time) have run on this same platform.

What business do old, shriveled men have telling women what to do with their bodies? Should women, now legislate if a man can have an elective vascectomy? Who is holding up the stem-cell medical research which will help stop much of the suffering of the people that ARE ALREADY HERE?  Gays are here. They have always been here. Limiting their freedoms will not make them go away. Those who have run on these “anti-gay” platforms have become quite wealthy and powerful in so doing. According to my Bible, God is the only righteous judge. He alone will judge the nations, not the Republicans, Religious Right, or the self-righteous.

Everytime an ad comes out from McCain’s “mean-spirited machine,” there will be a gigantic light of moral truth shown upon all of those who engage in these practices. Imagine, McCain would not name his running mate until after Obama did, and I understand that as Senator Obama is giving his acceptance speech of the Democratic nomination, an envious McCain will announce his running mate. This smacks of petty jealousy and desperation for media attention. The Republicans have respect for no one but one of their own. They have ruled for way too long. They are now judged. They will lose. They are not on high moral ground.  They need to brace themselves for God’s backdraft. Afterall, He is “…an all consuming fire.”

  1. Just what the worlds wants… “political insight” from a self-described poet/singer/songwriter and fortune-teller. Maybe you should stick to picking flowers and leave the political analysis to experts and those more suited to speak on such issues and those less intent on being judged as just another left-wing liberal loon who can only see life through rose-colored, Democratic Party-tinted lenses.

    In other words, we ain’t buying it, honey. So you might as well stop peddling it.

  2. Dear bolsonon,
    Why the animous? Did I hit a nerve? You are quite an ambitious Republican. You will not escape the times to come. I shall peddle whatever I like. I have freedom of speech, or did the Republicans take it away just as I was preparing the article? I shall write what I like, when I like. If you do not like it, stop reading it. Save the euphemism “honey” for someone who loves you.

    P.S. I love your attack. It just proves my point about your mean-spirit!!!

  3. Dear Alice,

    It is my gift to you that I stopped by to spread a bit of enlightenment your way. As a self-described fortune-teller, I would have thought you would have seen that coming. I guess your crystal ball is on the blink.

    Why is it that if someone disagrees with you and doesn’t share your myopic views, they are automatically labeled as mean-spirited?

    You have me all wrong. I meant no animousity. I wasn’t attacking you but you are certainly quick to assume the role of victim, now aren’t you? Fact is, I respect and encourage your freedom of speech–if even you are completely off-base. And I am disappointed to discover that you don’t love me. For someone who hides behind their bible, I would think you would be the first to love me. After all, aren’t we all God’s children—and doesn’t Jesus love the little children?

    Best wishes, good Karma, and all that jazz,

    Robert

    P.S. As an olive branch for peace I will give you some extra exclamation points since you seem to enjoy using them. We all know that excessive usage of exclamation points certainly convinces readers to agree with a viewpoint!!!!!!!!

    Wait, I just found a few more of them that I wasn’t using. Here you go: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Dear boloson,

    Didn’t you ever read the part of my bio where I say that I am an ex-fortuneteller? You are a mocker and a scorner, therefore shall you share in their portion.

  5. Dear Alice,

    Normally I wouldn’t allow such thinly-veiled marketing to remain on my Web site but in your case I’m going to make an exception. Frankly, theres’ something I like about you based upon your comments (certainly not your skewed political views) and wish you sincere success with all of your endeavors and all the best in life.

    Good evening,
    Robert

    (P.S. Sorry to disappoint you that I didn’t say anything mean-spirited, real or imagined.)

  6. Dear Robert,
    I appreciate your graciousness towards me. I am not into self-promotion. I am into self-expression. I only write about what I feel strongly about or what I cannot otherwise express (poetry) I have donated songs to ministries and to causes. I donated the proceeds of my last book of poetry to India. I write poetry for Canada’s NISA; Northern Initiative For Social Action (an online ezine and quarterly magazine for mental health consumers) I received an award from the United Kingdom’s ForwardPress “Top 100 Poets of 2005” for a poem entitled, “Pockets Of Evil.” It describes “terrorist cells.” I wrote the poem in 1993. Eight full years before 9/11. Many of my writings will not resonate for years. I
    am happy that we were able to mend the rift. Life is a vapor, Robert, and then we are gone.
    Blessings 7 peace,
    Alice Parris

  7. I am so proud of you and xa. I checked out your writing and it was excellent. You are a wonderful writer. Iwill stop by and comment tomorrow and link you to my other websites. For your son, I have the links to a couple of David’s video game reviews and his Spectrum Saga storyline. I am proud to have such talented family members. Will comment soon. I love you,
    Aunt Alice

  8. All quite true. Witness the last 2 presidential elections.
    Being anti-gay, anti choice, anti immigrants,anti your previous
    pros, not a winning strategy.

    • This piece was written in 2008. I am not surprised that it still rings true. If I feel strongly enough to write
      about something, it will bear itself out in time. I appreciate your comment and of course agree. I have not been
      active writing political pieces. I have felt a need in my spirit to hold my peace, even though I am aware of events
      that are coming. What I have already written with withstand the test of time and will continue into the immediate
      future. I do hope that people who chance upon this blog will look at the dates of the writings and know that there
      was no way for me to know many things that were to come had it not been for the Spirit of the Lord sharing with me.
