The 7 Deadly Sins and Has the GOP Morphed into the Nazi Party?

The 7 Deadly Sins and Has the GOP Morphed into the Nazi Party?

It’s hard being a Libertarian, constitutionalist and a classical liberal. You just don’t fit into the Republican or Democratic Parties because opposing wars and totalitarianism is verboten by state sanctioned parties. But this campaign season the Republicans, except for Ron Paul, have managed the incredible feat of raising the bar in its overt advocacy for endless wars and totalitarian tyranny. Has the GOP morphed into the Nazi Party? It’s a valid question considering the level of shameless verbosity of the neocon theocratic statists that dominate the GOP.

Republican voters love big bad bullies.

Perry said he loves executing folks. The debate crowd cheers.
Somebody attacked gays in the military. The debate crowd cheers.
Somebody said let sick people just die. The debate crowd cheers.

And on and on. Gingrich attacked the media for raising the issue of his now infamous serial adulterer lifestyle. The church going crowd went wild because, well, they love adulterers. During the Fox debate Gingrich talked about just killing our enemies. He got a standing ovation.

Ron Paul talks about invoking the Golden Rule and gets BOOED!

I'm convinced that the GOP base is a gang of murderous psychopaths.

A pundit summarized it best:

“Why do I keep pointing to Gingrich as the obvious GOP nominee? It's certainly not because I prefer him or support him. Even if I voted, and even if I voted Republican, I wouldn't vote for Newt.

But, here's the thing: This is a street fight, and Gingrich is a street fightin' man. There's no attack he won't use if he thinks it will work, and there's no blow he can't absorb standing up. That's how he's going to beat Romney, and that's how he's going to try to beat Obama.

Mitt Romney is the kind of candidate who does quite well, as long as he's floating forward on a carefully crafted narrative of "inevitability."…

Ron Paul is certainly a fighter. If the GOP -- Establishment and rank-and-file alike -- hadn't let themselves get so entrenched and besieged in their crackpipe post-9/11 foreign policy errors, he'd stand a chance. Unfortunately, mistakes of that size and scope tend to self-reinforce; they're so big, ugly and stupid that people can't bring themselves to admit they were mistakes at all. And most of them just won't support a candidate who's urging them to get their heads out of their asses instead of patting them on the back and telling them they're smart.”


And there, you have it. As Republicans wallow in their delusional grandiosity, they refuse to admit that they grievously erred and opted instead to live a lie and destroy the Republican Party or what’s left of it (not much). In fact, the portly butterball turkey known as the Angry Little Attack Muffin (a phrase coined by WSJ’s Peggy Noonan to describe Gingrich) actually embraced grandiosity as a desirable personal and national characteristic “This is a grandiose country of big people doing big things.” Indeed!

Except for the only truly moral and truly Christian man in the race – Ron Paul, the GOP primary is a case study in the Seven Deadly Sins – Lust, Pride, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed, Anger and Envy. Republicans lust for absolute power (some lust for both power and sex), Republicans are proud of divesting America of constitutional liberty (Patriot Act, NDAA), Republicans have an insatiable and gluttonous appetite for more government and murderous wars, Republicans are too lazy and slothful to defend our Constitution, Republicans are so greedy for the spoils of war and fascism that they routinely renounce free markets and liberty, Republicans burst into anger whenever anyone questions their corporatist, totalitarian, military industrial complex agenda and Republican envy translates into pure resentment for those who advocate for peace, liberty and prosperity.

I will proudly vote for Ron Paul, the only sane candidate in the GOP line-up, but I am also proud to not be a Republican.
