I have seen the light

I have been converted, years of common sense conservative and republican thought have won me over. I am saved. But I will need help as I transition a mind lost so long in liberalism. So please correct any lingering liberal ideas as I reform myself.

I now believe: Freedom is all you need and government should leave us alone. The Federal deficit started in 2009. Unions and teachers are the fault of our educational woes. Fannie and Freddie all by themselves caused the financial meltdown. The unemployed are not looking for jobs and are lazy to boot. Taxes are bad bad bad. Corporations are the best and really honest people. Global warming is a fraud made up by tree huggers. Our founding principles were perfect, Ms Bachmann showed me the way. Slavery was really kinda nice. Social Security, Medicare, and Healthcare are socialism. Minimum wage is too high and outsourcing is a just great. Joe McCarthy was just one super guy. And Sarah, Glenn, and Michelle Bachmann are super patriots who really know history. Any criticism of American policy is anti American hate. Am I right so far?

So fellow conservatives, republicans, tea partyers, and righties, what have I missed? Help me see more of the light.

  1. Darn, I tired, but an old woman told me how her husband had lost his pension due to corporate corruption, and how his failing health had then bankrupted them. The story she told was repeated by others who had lost much, but thanked FDR for Social Security which allowed them a decent living. And then a child born into poverty tugged at my sleeve, and asked what she had done wrong? Sorry conservatives, I just can't join your corporate clan, history came back to me, and all the failures of republicans stood open, while the attempts to help all Americans from the likes of FDR, Truman, LBJ stood lots brighter for this brief second we exist on this grain of sand in this humongous universe. I forgot too war, and the war machine that so many republican praise, but an Iraqi women brought back the perils of interfering in another nation only because of fear and hubris. Imagine picking up your child in pieces. And the American family I met, a soldier's mom who cries every day for what could have been. How many wrongs make right. Children who will never know....

    I never thought a day would come when it was the women of the family, who would be safer on the roads. All the men are potential terrorists it seems, and are therefore to be cut down on sight. This is the logic of today, is it not? To kill evil before it even has a chance to take root.

    When we got there, we were given his remains. And remains they were. From the waist down was all they could give us. “We identified him by the cell phone in his pants’ pocket. If you want the rest, you will just have to look for yourselves. We don’t know what he looks like.”

    [b]Now begins a horror that surpasses anything I could have possibly envisioned. We were led away, and before long a foul stench clogged my nose and I retched. With no more warning we came to a clearing that was probably an inside garden at one time; all round it were patios and rooms with large-pane windows to catch the evening breeze Baghdad is renowned for. But now it had become a slaughterhouse, only instead of cattle, all around were human bodies. On this side; complete bodies; on that side halves; and EVERYWHERE body parts.[/b]" http://washingtonbureau.typepad.com/iraq/2007/02/at_the_morgue.html
