A Political Video That Nails It

27 Sep

I usually avoid speaking about politics because it seems to bring out the worst in people.  As someone who used to vote mostly Republican, I find this clip from the Newsroom nails exactly how I feel about the rise of the Tea Party and the caving of the Republican Party to such an incoherent and anarchist movement within their ranks.

If only this had been John McCain, John Boehner, or even Newt Gingrich speaking these words, I might actually be inclined to consider voting for Republicans.  Until they deal with the Tea Party and it’s insanity,  I will continue to vote against any Republican that fails to distinguish themselves from the Tea Party.

      Yes…like I said, I can’t even take most Republicans seriously anymore because they are unwilling to stand up against these zealots. I’m especially disappointed in John McCain. He used to be a moderate that did not bend towards this type of rhetoric and absolutism.

        I don’t know much about politics, but from what I’ve seen it seems like the kind of business that profits most from the suffering of others. The majority of who we call leaders can’t even speak their mind for fear of losing their position, and the sad part is, when some of them do speak their mind, we find out what kind of insane people are running things. It’s a sad state of affairs.
