God and Guns: Vote GOP!

Posted in Philosophy, Politics, Rants on March 11, 2012 by jstevenperry

Hypocrisy irritates me. Speaking of hypocrisy, this is an election year, and the GOP primaries are in full swing. This week’s topic: morality!

While I believe Mr. Santorum is sincere when he spouts his brand of noise, claiming America’s moral decline is due to the number of unwed mothers, in the end, the GOP utopia is the World of “Bladerunner” where everything is privatized and corporations run the world (we are closer to this than you might think).

The GOP only cozies up to the religious right and the second amendment with their scare tactics to get the votes to bring that utopia to pass (after all they represent only 1%, which isn’t enough votes). The don’t give one tiny toot about morality.

Truth be told, the U.S. is a plutocracy; a system set up to (a) protect the wealthy and (b) make sure the system perpetuates itself. All this talk of morality is scare-noise meant to frighten the religious right into voting GOP.

And it works.
