The Republican Party: The Ghoulish Party of Death

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocKFSLsZnUo&feature=related]

First the Tea Party roared its approval when Ron Paul said that letting the uninsured die was “what freedom is all about.” “Should we let them die?” Wolf Blitzer asked. “Yes!” the Tea Party crowd shouted.

Here, at another weird Republican Party debate, the anchor says, “Governor Perry, you have executed 234 people in your time as governor…” The Republican crowd then roars with approval.

Recall that the crowd cheered when Jesus was executed too. One wonders if those Jews were proto-Republicans?

This party is getting really sick, and this country is getting really sick. This is turning into some kind of culture of death. Or maybe it always was?

  1. Republicans (and even some centrists and liberals) on various forums are denying that Paul said a guy who doesn’t have insurance should be left to die if he needs 6 months of intensive care and is in a coma. They point out that after being pressed, he said “churches and friends” should help him, and that no one is denied medical care in this country.
    When the fact is mentioned that people without insurance are denied care and die every day in this country, and that a church or a friend is not too likely to pay the medical bills for someone on life support in a hospital for 6 months…they repeat that Paul did not say “let him die”.
    Look, if you are asked “Should we fund this guys healthcare” and the answer is “Hey, he had the choice to buy insurance and he gambled, you should have the “freedom” in this country to reap the benefits or the hardships of your choices.” …then I can’t interpret that any other way than saying he should be left to his fate.
    Of course, many people don’t have a choice.
    A 22 yr old doesn’t count on getting sick, or getting into a major accident, and most 22 yr olds can’t afford $300 a month premiums. Also, if you have a chronic condition like diabetes, you can’t buy insurance.
    So Paul’s answer is clear, but his spin is in full gear.

    1. If the guys to cheap to buy health insurance then fuck him let him die. It is his own choice just like people who take drugs or smoke.

      Ron Paul Revolution.

        1. Like him or not it looks like some establishment figures are pushing Ron Paul and will be a lead contender for the presidential race as Obama is a one term president.

          What about the LaRouche Democrats?

          As far as I can tell they are the only ones with a plan and are willing to do anything like restore Glass-Stiegel, NAWAPA, Maglev rail network, NASA, etc.

          In Europe we would consider the entire spectrum of US politics apart from Ralph Nader as right wing as even the Conservative our Republicans support social infrastructure like national healthcare as well as National parties.

          If any government considered abolishing the national health care system they would not last 6 months

          In America socialist seems to mean Communist.

  2. “Recall that the crowd cheered when Jesus was executed too. One wonders if those Jews were proto-Republicans?”

    Yes but Jesus was innocent with the governing Pharisees and the Jewish public pressuring Pontus Pilate to crucify Jesus a public show trail so to compare that to the legal system in Texas which has inmates on death row for years with a lengthily appeal procedure is pretty ludicrous.

    Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

    1. Aren’t the low-IQ people who don’t know health insurance is a good idea innocent, since they cannot help it? Food for thought.

  3. I agree with every word he said. I support the death penalty 100%. I don’t see what’s wrong with putting murderers 6 ft under for good. Seems like cosmic justice to me and it gives closure to the victim’s families. I’d rather have it that way than in some place like Sweden where you could kill a bunch of kids and back out on parole in 10 years.

    1. I don’t understand why people are so passionate about the death penalty. I used to be, but then I got over that. Now I don’t care. I’m just as happy locking them away forever. There seems to be no compelling reason for the state to kill people. There’s no upside to it, and a lot of downside. Almost all civilized countries have gotten away from this barbarism. Further, it’s a matter of time before you execute an innocent person. In closing, it’s been proven endlessly that the death penalty is racist. I believe most executed people are Blacks, no? It’s just a modern day way of lynching Blacks.

      1. Why are you pulling out the race card? Am I supposed to renege my support of it because blacks are more likely to get executed? If that’s the case I might as well be against imprisonment as well since that disproportionately effects blacks. Frankly I don’t care. It’s not hard to avoid first degree homicide. I’m not sympathetic towards criminals in the least.

      2. The death penalty is classist above all. If there were 15,000 executions per year in the US, I would back the death penalty. As long as only 40 or 50 murderers are executed in the US every year, I’ll be against it. The death penalty should be common or not at all.

  4. Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

    This is perhaps one of the weaknesses of a democracy?
    The difference between an individual and a mob. As if a conscience is diluted by shared guilt, like heroin weakened by mannite, prohibition gin weakened by water.

  5. Well then Tulio, you should e-mail the warden of the closest prison, ask if you can get permission to bring a Bear grylls-approved knife to the next execution and do the scumbag yourself, sticking his hogtied body like a squirming pig, hacking off pieces for souvenirs. Bring lots of Bounty beter-picker-uppers.

    1. Some prisoners actually prefer the death penalty rather than spend the rest of their life in prison.

      I agree with tulio not least that it is simply economical to kill a prisoner rather than house them for the rest of their life in a super max prison.

      If they don’t like the punishment then they should have not done the crime especially in states that carry the death penalty.

  6. Glass-Steigal was not the problem.
    The death penalty is racist. Why is it whenever someone points out racism they’re accused of “pulling the race card”?
    Why is it when someone points to a skinhead in full Nazi garb and calls them a Nazi or a neo-Nazi, they’re acused of resorting to “Godwin’s Law”?
    It’s far cheaper to lock someone up for life than to kill them, and I’d guess about 5% of everyone executed or waiting to be executed are innocent.
    Also, having the death penalty stops us from being able to bring murderers to justice.
    The vast majority of death row inmates fight against execution. That said, it could be demonstrated that states that have the death penalty actually produce more heinous murders. Ted Bundy escaped from a prison in a state that didn’t have the death penalty and fled straight to Florida, a state that not only has the DP but uses it with gleeful, enthusiastic abandon. He proceeded to go on a killing spree at a college that was sloppy and atypical to his M.O., particularly bestial, and he made little attempt to cover his tracks, giving the appearance at least that he came here BECAUSE we had the DP. He wanted to get caught.

  7. I’ve gone through various stages in my thoughts about the death penalty, and I think I’ve arrived at the conclusion that it should be rare but available. Certainly there are a lot of injustices and errors that remain to be addressed, but some people simply don’t deserve to breathe air. Example: those scumbags in Connecticut(?) who raped and murdered that whole family then set the house on fire.

    I know that civilized European countries don’t do it, but guess what: we’re not a civilized European country. In many ways the U.S. combines the worst aspects of the third world and developed countries. Americans are simply too stupid, brutal, and undisciplined to live under the enlightened policies that work (most of the time) in places like Sweden or even the UK.

    Interesting. I never looked at it this way.
