I will immediately state my biases that I believe these people are absolutely ridiculous. It’s just another example and confirms the “Prove-It” Mentality that I previously discussed.
With all due respect to those within the Republican Party who finds these people among them insane? I must say that this is just another mark against the GOP’s efforts to diversify its membership. You have a problem with this and you will not listen to the few people open-minded enough to offer some advice to help. This is absolutely ruining the way the Republican Party is viewed in groups who are not White men.
The Birthers are a cancer of conservative logic and replacing it with the irrational illogic that’s subtly redefining the Republican Party. Will someone please do something? Never mind your dislike of my thoughts, ideas and suggestions because if this continues the Republican Party will be replaced by the Libertarian Party.
I may disagree with the GOP, but you’re the enemy I know and love to hate as I am to you. It’s actually difficult watching you being reduced to what I know you’re not, but soon becoming. We can still disagree, but what has grab hold to the GOP is our common enemy and if you are true to the values you claim then you will stand up and speak out against these people and those who represent you who appease them, because they claim to be Republican.
Now I’m not even considering the unelected representatives who give credence to these people such as Rush Limbaugh, Lou Dobbs, Alan Keyes, G. Gordon Liddy, FOX News and friends. I’m talking about the elected officials who are all Republicans who are enabling and giving validity to their paranoia.
The Republican Party is under an ideological attack from within that’s seriously threatening its relevancy as a major U.S. political party. I can guarantee that there is another political party ready to take its place. Perhaps Bob Barr can better define their position for you. This is not a Democrat vs Republican fight, nor is it a Republican vs Libertarian fight, but a Republican vs Republican fight.
Who’s going to win?
I guess it’s just another instance of the prove-it mentality.References & Inspiration Firedog Lake – 07/28/09 “Birther Crazies Aren’t Just A Few Misguided Souls” Salon – 07/28/09 “The Birthers in Congress” FactCheck.org – 11/01/08 “Born in the USA” PolitiFact & Hawaii Department of Health – President Obama’s Birth Certificate
