Set Thy People Free!

6 Feb

Can someone please explain the Republican party to me? Do Republicans listen to themselves when they speak? And is anyone else actually listening to what they are saying? Especially Republican voters?

I get it…Republicans want freedom.

Freedom from Healthcare

Freedom from vaccinations

Freedom from having to make cakes for homosexuals

Freedom to carry and use your gun whenever and wherever you want

Freedom for corporations to have religious and personal rights

Freedom to go hungry when you have no food

Freedom to be homeless when you have no place to live

Freedom from all government regulations of any kind

Freedom to buy politicians and political influence at any cost

Freedom to condemn all beliefs not Christian

Freedom to pollute the Earth, water and air

They apparently want all present day Americans to have so many freedoms restored that it will feel like the 19th century all over again when the Robber Barons ruled the world and most Americans lived in abject poverty and without: health services, vaccinations, clean water, clean air, worker’s rights, decent wages, safe workplaces, personal rights to vote, worship and enjoy one’s sexual orientation, nationality and skin color without fear.

Is there but only one freedom necessary in the Republican world?

The freedom to carry one’s own cross and be nailed to it while your fellow citizens watch with indifference?

    Very strong concluding image.
    Is it indifference or numbness?

    It’s actually worse than the 19th Century, since we’re so much more efficient these days in creating lethal contaminants. In the 19th Century they were only just beginning to get a grasp on how to pollute the planet.
    And, I note, that Republican Voters (as distinguished from the corporations and 1%ers who are the beneficiaries of their electoral idiocies) only want such freedoms until their own children catch measles, or their own well water is poisoned by fracking. Then, they scream, just like the rest of us.

    I love your analogy to the Robber Barons. I, personally, have been comparing it to the Gilded Age. It just seems that our country is moving backwards. It is so hard to watch.

    I’m an Independent (person without political party affiliation) but appreciate you pointing out the irrationality of US Republican Party.
