Yesterday in Seattle I listened to a radio commercial for the Democrat nominee for Governor of Washington state.
It was amazing in its disregard for the truth.
First it blamed all the ills of the world on Bush; that’s to be expected this time around. But then it went off the deep end with the following, none of it remotely truthful or factual.
Republicans will overturn Roe. Hate to break it to Dems, but no president has anything to do with Roe and can’t change it in any way shape or form. And – if it were overturned, the result would be immediate legislation in all 50 states legalizing abortion. Like when CA Governor Ronald Reagan signed the most liberal abortion legislation in the country at the time.
No one in their right mind wants to stop Democrats from aborting themselves out of the gene pool. Go look at the numbers in the link below.
News Flash: There are NO women of child-bearing age in America who ever have lacked access to legal abortion; for the Far Right (or the Left) to think that’ll change if the issue goes to the legislators is insane.
Then the ad moved on to Bush being against stem-cell research. Whether he is or not is immaterial. Bush hasn’t banned stem-cell research, he just banned federal dollars for it. If it indeed is the best thing since canned beer, the market (i.e. Venture Capitalists – those greedy financiers who fund progress to the abhorence of anti-capitalists everywhere, including most Far Lefties) will fund it. If investors think there is money to be made in stem cell research, it’ll get funded. No reason at all for the government to do what the market can do better.
If it’s so good, why aren’t the VCs jumping on it, those greedy capitalist globalist bastards who will do anything for a buck?
Then the ad went on to Global Warming, stating that Bush was against “all the evidence.” Sorry – but there IS no evidence supporting global warming theology. A) The earth has been cooling since 1998. B) the temperature drop of 0.7 degrees C last year was the largest one-year drop in the historical record. C) the actual IPCC report is NOT reflected in the IPCC Summary used by the Media and Al Gore to alarm everyone, and in fact thousands of real climatologists have pointed this out in a letter to the IPCC head – that they don’t believe it.
The state of politics in America, particularly on the Left is totally reliant on a lack of basic education, a lack of ability to think critically about issues rather than playing follow-the-uninformed-and-idiotic-celebrity.
An educated populace would never accept ads like this, let alone actually vote based on the idiocy voiced in them.
But of course if America had an educated populace, the current Democrat Party would not exist and the Republican Party would throw the Far Right under the bus.
And Teacher unions would be outlawed as the worst possible thing for our future as a nation, a society and a culture.
