Yes, the majority of politicians are fucked up, *but* their fuck-ups are *not* created equal. Ask yourself:
1) Which side wants to make sure Tak and I remain in permanent second-class status by propagating lies about the GLBT community?The GOP's "slippery slope" comments about gay marriage ("people will want to marry their kids/dogs/cats/kitchen sinks") constantly leaves out the principle of *informed consent*. They are called on that point numerous times, yet they never acknowledge it because it takes all the teeth out of their argument.
2) Which side wants to dismantle Medicare as we know it and make it into another system like the current private insurance system? People talk about "Obamacare" without stopping to think that its current form is *not* what was originally thought of by Obama. The current form is *after* numerous concessions were made to the GOP... to be "fair".
3) Which side overwhelmingly wants to make their religion the law of the land, despite the Constitution forbidding it? Example: There is no secular reason to disallow gay marriage. None. Every argument against it is either a flat-out lie or can be traced back to "God thinks it's icky", which is not a valid reason to disallow it by law.
4) Which side has overwhelmingly sided with businesses over people, more often than not to the stark *detriment* of the people? For example, we'd all be better off if health insurance companies were outlawed and free health care were mandated LIKE IN MOST OF THE REST OF THE FREE WORLD, but you'll never see it because that would kill businesses. Never mind that the current form has been killing far more *people*.
I know there are exceptions in both major political parties, but I'm asking about the voting records of the parties AS A WHOLE, not specific members.
You really can't deny that the GOP as a group has done more to remove rights and fuck up the economy than the Dems ever could.
So what have the Dems fucked up, you ask? What rights have they removed or seek to remove? Yeah they used to seek to remove gun rights, but they've quieted down a lot about that recently. Violent video games? No, not so much anymore. Higher taxes for the rich? Well, being that the rich pay less in taxes, by ratio, than the average person due to loopholes they exploit (example: G.E. paid NO taxes for 2009), yeah, I'd like to see those loopholes closed. But on a whole, the Dems aren't seeking to disenfranchise voters, regulate citizens to second-class status, or kill support to the poor, elderly, and disabled
The Dems' only real fuck-up... is not standing up to the GOP's crap enough. They make concession after concession to the GOP to be "fair", and when the compromised plan fails, the GOP says, "look at what the Democrats failed at!" The Dems have been playing nice with an opponent who simply doesn't play nice. To borrow a principle from "Road House": It's time to *not* be nice.
