Republican agenda   |

Republican agenda  

1. Bush’s war on terror has put Iraq on the verge of civil war because of American invasion, creating excess terrorism and global fear.

2. Gays, the new “whipping boys” for racists like blacks and Indians. Subhuman, born without souls until converted to Christianity.

3. The killing of live human beings is OK.

4. Millionaires deserve special government privileges.

5. Children born into poverty should receive little help.

6. Paying exorbitant fees for prescription drugs and dividend checks to CEOs like Vice President Cheney with Halliburton, is fine.

 8. No Child Left Behind, but continue to slash public education, while spending $200 billion to invade countries not invading American borders.

9. Automatic weapons and gun control shouldn’t be legislated. It could upset the NRA, a large contributing base for the Republican Party.  

Is this Republican agenda a power/racist one? Where is: Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods, or the Golden

Rule: Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you? Our oil-rich Middle East neighbors created these commandments. Forgive me, but I thought God was watching to see how we treat all human KIND?
