The Republican National Convention is kicking-off in Tampa, this week.
We are going to hear about Obama's health care program being "European" although it almost perfectly mimics the health care program implemented by the presumptive Republican nominee, while governor of Massachusetts.
We are going to hear about the sanctity of marriage.
We are going to hear that unborn babies must be protected.
We are going to hear that abortion must be prevented.
We are going to hear that Obama's policies are socialist, even though they consistently and effectively ensure the health and safety of the capitalistic system Republicans have promoted for thirty years.
We are not going to hear anything about tax relief for the middle class.
We are not going to hear about debt-relief for the middle class.
We are not going to hear anything abut the market being at an all-time high, after being driven to an all-time low by the Republicans.
Smart people will not tune in.
This is an event strictly for tea-baggers, political analysts, and Republican apologists. People desperate to find a way to vote Republican and still say they believe in America and personal freedom. These are sad, otherwise intelligent people, who have had their party hijacked and now must reconcile abridging the rights of taxpayers and highlighting the dangers of a medical system they signed into law just a few years ago, as representative of their core beliefs and values.
I actually feel sorry for Republican voters. It must be difficult to know that the Party is fabricating myths to re-take the White House, and plan to hurt your friends and family in order to do it.
