What Republicans Believe

belief-venn-diagramI have kept this list for a long time, and have now decided to post about it.  Naturally, this list came from a Democrat point-of-view, so take it with a grain of salt.  But even more important, read this list and formulate your own opinion.  Then, follow-up with some fact checking to see if any/all/none of the bullet items are true.

None of the items listed below are representative of any of the Hot Lard staff’s views … it is merely a list to engage in conversation.  I fully-expect comments supporting any/all/none of the items, but I also expect comments denouncing any/all/none of the items.

Enjoy!

  • Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you’re a conservative radio host. Then it’s an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.
  • The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.
  • Government should relax regulation of Big Business and Big Money but crack down on individuals who use marijuana to relieve the pain of illness.
  • “Standing Tall for America” means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.
  • A woman can’t be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.
  • Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.
  • The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans’ benefits and combat pay.
  • Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you someday run for governor of California as a Republican.
  • If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won’t have sex.
  • A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.
  • HMOs and insurance companies have the interest of the public at heart.
  • Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy.  Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.
  • Global warming and tobacco’s link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.
  • Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush’s daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a “we can’t find Bin Laden” diversion.
  • A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.
  • Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.
  • The public has a right to know about Hillary’s cattle trades, but George Bush’s driving record is none of our business.
  • You support states’ rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have a right to adopt.
  • What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the ’80s is irrelevant.
  • Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

  1. Great blog. And so very true.

    I particularly liked :
    A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

    I never thought about that before. Brilliantly put.

    • Oh no!! People are going to start thinking the Hot Lard staff is smart!!

      This cannot continue. Consider this the very last intellectual post on Hot Lard for the foreseeable future. From now on, only Smurf/midget/equine porn will be discussed.

      BTW Mr. Futile… have you seen any of our other posts on our “great blog”?
