That they are homophobes is written in all the legislation that is designed to prevent gays from state-sanctioned marriage. And worst by acts of violence against gays. Christians debase themselves and their religion when they side with homophobes. The Sermon on the Mount is on the side of gays. Christ turned tables in the haunts of the money-changers but said not a word of ridicule of gays.
That they are gun freaks shrieks it is so by all that they advocate and preach. They are anarchists and fascists. They subvert the state's right to maintain order and a law-abiding public. They would arm every household to maintain its safety with an armory of weapons, including the most deadly that soldiers carry war. They advocate a stable society based on gunfire, the fascist way.
That they are religious fundamentalists is so apparent it is a bore to elaborate. They never question that their theology is the truth handed down to some bearded ancients millennia ago. Theirs is the truth and there is no other truth. So anyone believing otherwise is either a religious enemy or a suspected soldier of Satan. That they have the mindset of the Taliban should sometime cause them to reassess their beliefs. Their ilk in Pakistan kills teenage girls who wish to become educated, while in this enlightened land they shoot to death abortion doctors.
That they are gonzo libertarians is clear. They would have stored gold with value enough to cover all paper money just as it was before Nixon. Such an economic system with regard to money would stifle commerce. It would be, you guessed it, a benefit to the wealthy. Inflation to the rich is a disease. The gold standard is immunization against inflation.
That this group has within its ranks a large delegation of dimwits and poorly educated is obvious. Who can believe now that if capitalism has free rein it will not bring about economic disaster, ecological devastation, obscene wealth for a few and pay-day-to pay-day income for the many? Who can believe that in this age of enlightenment that more than half of the citizens of this country believe in Creationism? The basis of such ignorance is sloth in efforts to learn and to be acquainted with the best and most informative literature that has been written on the evolution of the species.
That within legions of Republicans there are birthers, deniers of climate change, EPA-eliminators and those who believe a citizen should be able to acquire 6,000 rounds of ammunition for automatic weapons. There is in such beliefs a strain of hysteria. In fact, the whole of the GOP policy has a strange and worrisome egocentric and rabid nationalism about it.
