45. Here's the thing about many/most Republicans.

I feel that their political beliefs are centered on what OTHER PEOPLE are doing. What other people are getting. Why should these people be getting assistance? Why should that woman be able to get an abortion? He doesn't look disabled to me. and on and on.

For some reason, they fail to realize that every single human being is merely seconds away from a personal/financial/health disaster.

They do not recognize that we are all not dealt the same deck of cards. Everyone is not like them. Each of us are shaped by our years of living, and what has happened to us during those years. Some people have had it easy, some people have thrived in spite of impossible circumstances, and some people have succumbed to impossible circumstances. Being poor is not a failure, and in many respects, being poor will strengthen you.

For example...the asylum seekers. I admire these people so much. They have the clothes on their backs, and not much else. They walked/traveled 2,000 miles to escape onerous conditions. These people are tough as nails. These people have true character. I would rather have a person like this in my life than any Republican.

Don't let them get you down. They are brainwashed. They are misguided. They are weak. Many of them are dead stupid. They cannot understand that no matter what they may have in life, we are all going to end up dead someday, and their judgments foisted upon others will be irrelevant.
