Top 10 Reasons the Republican Party is Bad for America

with 3 comments


The following is a list of the top ten reasons I feel the Republican party is bad for our country:

  1. The Republican Party would rather give tax breaks to the rich and make up the difference by increasing taxes on the poor than work toward solving issues such as unemployment and poverty. Where is the logic in making people who don’t have money pay higher taxes than the people who have the most money?
  2. The Republican Party consistently uses religion to back legislation–a clear violation of the first amendment’s protection of freedom of religion.
  3. The GOP has a history of supporting war for war’s sake.
  4. Sarah Palin. ‘Nuff said.
  5. The Republican Party takes a pro-life stance when it comes to abortion, but strongly favors fighting wars, hunting for sport and food, and strongly supports the death penalty. Hypocrite much?
  6. The Republican Party’s actions hint toward wanting a separation of classes.
  7. The GOP wants to cut funding from education–so that middle and lower class families are unable to educate their children.
  8. The Republican Party pretends to love America, but its only interest is lining its own pockets.
  9. Many Republicans refuse to even consider the positions of others on political matters.
  10. Do we really want to put up with another Bush?

 

As always, comments are welcome.

  1. 1, 2, and 3 may be valid points the way they are stated (though I’m sure lots of people would debate #3). However, the others could easily be reversed for the Democratic Party. Name a couple politicians Republicans hate for 4 & 10, invert 5, swap out 6 with the “socialism” boogeyman, pick a spending cut the Democrats like (defence, for instance) and its potential negative consequences for 7, accuse Democrats of trying to weaken our sovereignty or what have you for 8, and swap parties on 9.

    That said, I’d certainly be willing to listen to your arguments on 1-3.

  2. I find it hard to debate democrat/republican idealism because it seems to me all the political parties of this time are outdated and that it’s time for a new system. Someone brilliant should find the most “left” and the most “right” person in the country and lock them in a room until they can come up with a system that works. No offense to the founders, but really… it has been over 200 years. With all the changes in our society since then, the system seems not broken but destroyed. I’m sure that’s an unpopular opinion, but it’s the only one I have.
