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.

Japan: An Update

leave a comment »

According to Yahoo! News yesterday, the death toll in Japan is at 10,000 and rising. This is clearly turning into a major global incident. Although I do not necessarily agree with President Obama on every issue, I do agree that it is in our best humanitarian interest to support Japan in any way that we can. However, I do not believe that simply sending an aircraft carrier to Japan and expecting everything to turn out okay is the best option.

Normally I would suggest that we keep to ourselves and focus on our own problems before trying to solve the problems of others. This catastrophe calls for action. Please, call around and ask what you can do to help. Be careful, though: there are always scam artists who try to take advantage kind-hearted people in times of need.

Also, please keep the people of Japan in your thoughts and prayers.

As always, I look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.

A Tragedy in Japan

leave a comment »

I didn’t plan on having another post today, but I thought I should extend my thoughts and prayers to those affected by the 8.9 earhquake and tsunami early this morning. Several have died, and many more (from what I’ve heard) are still missing. Please keep the good people of Japan in your prayers. This is a time when we need to stand together as not only a nation, but as a planet. The damage in Japan may take a long time to fix, and the lives lost can never be restored, but if we work together we can accomplish great things.

Thank you.
