Can you tell that I resorted somewhat to my memory of the Scout's Honor??

Yep, but I only made it to Tenderfoot before I recognized that it was 'military lite'.

Oh yeah and "reverent"!

3. Absolutely. It's become little more than a fascist vehicle, parading as a party..

Indeed - it's the only major party in the entire developed world (and much of the developing) to meet all 14 criteria for fascism.

28. authoritarianism is a heritable mostly 'old world' susceptibility to sex on the wrong brain

which is caused by wrong handed masturbation

for millions of years it provided a survival benefit in times of conflict and scarcity and that's why we're 90% right handed but the last few thousand years it got really bad

trumpers, proud boys, nazis, taliban, and extremists all over the world are basically masturbation cults - it's the sex on the wrong brain

The Dem party dates to about 1828. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_(United_States)

36. But the slimy critters decided to infiltrate the Democrats of the south and take it over.

The Republicans at the time of Lincoln were pretty respectable from my perspective. The Republicons switched platforms when they saw an ability to actually get southern votes. Then the play for the southern card between the parties. It makes the head spin. Heather Cox Richardson is the clear voice on how this has and is playing out: https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/

That exists and may overwhelm all the other aspects and the US government itself because of two Democratic senators.

21. I KNOW but...

why would any person choose to be like this? Who in the Hell would want to be evil? Who in the Hell would support political cretins? I just don't understand why someone wants to be a terrible, horrible, rotten asshole? Why??? How do they get this way? Is it a genteic defect? Is it socioeconomic, or is it plain old sociopathic behavior? If you had a choice between Good and Evil, who would choose Evil and why? I just don't get it.

This is one of the main reasons I chose to not ever have children while still in my teens. My gut knew it would be unfair to any future kid to grow up in the greedy, hypocritical USA/GQP environment.

so it goes from one generation to the next? How do we break this cycle of misinformation when there is Fux Noise and all the other BS on social media. It seems like it is an uphill battle that continues to grow steeper every year. It is so disheartening.

Signs of hope that young people are extremely liberal/progressive and we really need to keep them politically engaged so they don't tune out.

39. 2 Words: Rush Limbaugh (and Hate Radio.)

We all rail against Fox Entertainment, but RW Hate radio has it's roots in the crazy evangelical radio stations that sprang up everywhere in the 20th Century.

In turn Hate Radio was used by racist Movement Conservatives, Koch & Bush Family Money, a subverted NRA to raise money and supply weapons, and shared the willingness (ignorance is NOT a defence) of evangelical sects and ministries such as the Billy Graham Crusade in the early 1960's to prostrate themselves before the alter of greed and enable the use of abortion and birth control controversies as wedge issues.

Not to mention that early RW and 'christian' radio jocks mobilized hatred using the right of black people to sit where they choose on a bus or at a lunch counter to revitalize ole Jim Crow.

They find that blind obedience to a strong man Führer and ignoring the constitution and settled law is a far more expedient way to get what they want - a ChristoFascist oligarchy where the rich are rewarded and the poor are persecuted.

42. The biggest scam of all is that their patriotism doesn't exist

They claim to love an America that never existed and never will.

They want Americans of European descent to rule the world and be both feared and loved for it, where the rest of the world will never love us if we force them to fear us.

That is not patriotism, it is an inferiority complex that is self-inflicted. Get comfortable in your skin (they never will), and you have made the first step toward gaining the respect you so covet. They are terrified (with good reason) that their god, whom they trot out as their justification for all evil deeds, if real at all, might not really approve of what they are doing.
