Republicans Are Only Trying To Protect Us - And Response

Friday, November 15, 2013

Finally I understand. In the wake of the disastrous rollout of the Affordable Care Act, a Republican friend explained to me how Republican politicians were only trying to help the President so he would not make a mistake. That is the reason they voted against it some 40 plus times. Trying to sit down with the President in a bipartisan committee to offer solutions and help secure health care for all Americans would have been futile.  Same reason they voted against every Presidential appointee. Just trying to help the President.  

He came on so strong when he won the first election and shocked almost half of America and then, winning a second term was unimaginable. How long would Republicans have to continue to protect the President? They would just have to double down with the help of the Tea Party in order to protect this President from his own mistakes.   

We all know mistakes can happen, just look at the non-existent weapons of mass destruction that caused President Bush to declare War. To show their displeasure at President Bush, they have avoided him at all costs. And he is a Republican. 

And if anyone is concerned about voter obstruction, rest easy, the Republicans are only trying to protect America from the voting fools who elected President Obama twice. America does not need another Socialist President and Hillary Clinton is on the horizon.  

Thanks to the Tea Party and the Republican Party for their tireless efforts in protecting America from wasting taxpayer’s money to feed and house the homeless, including homeless veterans. Thank you for protecting the insurance companies who have provided unequaled, quality health insurance to those who can afford it. Thank you to the Republicans for protecting the profits of corporations; after all, they are people too. Without windfall profits for corporations, there would not be enough to trickle down to the shrinking middle class.    

Thank you to the Tea Party Republicans who are dedicated to protecting women from themselves.  

And a big shout out to the 2nd amendment warriors, who know how important it is to have a well regulated militia. Thanks again for helping us understand that as tragic as the Sandy Hook slaughter is, we must be brave and fight for our right to bear arms.  

One more “thank you” to those who are protecting us from moral decay. I am sure Jesus was only joking when he said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

I appreciate the sarcasm; it brightened my raining afternoon. I think it's easy to see that you are just as equally in lockstep with the talking points of the liberal agenda as Ted Cruz is with the Tea Party that you so greatly despise. Congratulations: you are part of the problem. 

Similarly to your sarcasm, I find humor in your belief that Democrats want to </sarcasm> protect you from insurance companies and corporations. The President and the Dems set up a program to feed you to insurance corporations at a much higher rate. What does the first 'A' in A.C.A. stand for?  

Don't mistake me with someone trying to defend Cruz or the WMDs. I would however like to point out that your team is just as bad as the other and neither are trying to protect us. Instead they both say the same things, appealing to different demographics. We are now debating the minutiae instead of watching what they are actually doing.  

Keep up the good work. Soon enough, we won't have a Constitution to protect us (read up on the history of the Bill of Rights). Before you know it, we won't even have the pleasure of selecting who <sarcasm> "protects us." It will be decided for us and there will be no "other side" to step up and protect us. It takes all kinds.
