12. The Republican Double Standard Act comes into play
Thu Oct 31, 2013, 12:05 PM

They hold Democrats to a higher standard than they hold themselves.

Convenient memories are encouraged.

Extreme outrage when anything the Dems legislate goes awry, ignore similar or identical issues if it's GOP legislation.

Pretend you've never done anything similar, or come from a similar family background if there's an opportunity to focus the public's attention on a Democrat (i.e., Obama's father v. Ted Cruz's father)

Lie, take bribes, cheat...all should be overlooked if a Republican does it, but condemn if a Democrat does that same thing.

They do not live in the same world as the rest of us. They are corrupt liars who represent the top 1% and pretend to care about the American people, even though their actions and voting record show they do not. They depend on the racist hatred and low information of their supporters to continue to get by with their dirty deeds.

Education is not their friend, nor is a free media that reports the facts to the people.
