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.

The American Way of Life

Take a look at your grocery list. What kinds of foods do you have listed? Do you have things such as whole grain breads, fresh fruits and vegetables, and (if you’re not vegetarian) lean cuts of meat? If you live in the United States, chances are you don’t. In America, sugary, processed foods are much more affordable than their all-natural counterparts.

While I was shopping at my local supermarket, I thought I would take a look at how much of a difference there was between the foods I was buying and the foods I wanted to buy. What I discovered shocked me. A standard box of Fruit Loops (which would last about two weeks at my house) cost about $3; a 3-pound bag of apples (which would last about four days at my house) cost about $4. Think about that for a minute. I can be fed for two weeks by spending $3 or, I can eat a healthy alternative for the same amount of time and spend five times as much. Which is the logical choice for a struggling family?

And we wonder why America is getting fat.
