Many in the liberal media (you puppy-hating, Muslim-loving, gay illegal immigrants know who you are!) have tried to criticize Republicans for voicing 100% support the military, vowing that we should leave no soldier behind and initially supporting doing whatever it took to bring U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl back home from captivity…then after he was brought back home, attacking President Obama for actually practicing all of those values.
Well, though those in the GameStream Bleedia may light up their legal joints in celebration at declaring that Republicans are suddenly being hypocrites on this but let me tell you something…there is no “suddenly” about it!
Throughout American history, Republicans have always stood for supporting the goals they speak up for…then attacking any Democrats who accomplishes them!
Since those in the FlameBeam Creedia attack faith (which is all we base our economic policies and political appeal on), as proof of this I have listed two excerpts below from the official Republican Encyclopedia of Hindsight Deals to prove that Republicans have always been consistent in their complete inconsistency on the principles they stand by…conditionally.
THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE
In 1989, the conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation, opposed the Clinton Administration’s efforts on providing universal health care and proposed an individual mandate for health insurance. Though it failed to pass then, Republican Governor Mitt Romney included it in his Romneycare health insurance legislation in Massachusetts in 2006. This approach represented the free market and individual responsibility principles of the Republican Party…until President Obama had to double dip his chip in it. Then of course, who wants to keep eating that dip?
Republicans stood firm against their own program that this Constitution-hating, anti-colonialist President dared to try an enact into law, calling it “socialism”, “a government takeover of health care”, “creating Death Panels” and “full o’ cooties”.
Thanks to a traitorous Supreme Court (at least on that one ruling), Republicans were unable to completely destroy the law that they believed was truly faithful to Republican values.
In recognition of this somber occasion, on the date that the Individual Mandate for personal responsibility over insuring oneself was condoned by the Supreme Court, Republicans refuse to take any personal responsibility for anything (NOTE: For many Republicans, this is a year round tradition).
Then there is this famous moment in Republican Hindsight history:
ENTERING WWII AFTER THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR
On December 7, 1941, The Imperial Japanese Navy attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to cripple the Pacific force of the U.S.. In response to this shocking attack, Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called on Congress to declare war upon Japan and thus began the U.S. entry into World War II.
However, in 2014, Republicans have reconsidered the data and discovered that although 60 million people were killed throughout World War II, the real tragedy was that Americans were killed too, lives that actually mattered. Republicans may have supported that Democrat war then but looking at it now, how could The President trade 300,000 lives for not living under global Nazi tyranny? Of course, Republicans oppose living under such a brutal fascist dictatorship but not at such a cost.
Republicans believe that looking back, America should have explained to the Japanese that they were not only going to lose the war but they would have karaoke and McDonalds hamburgers in their future so they should just surrender now and move forward quicker to a fun and higher cholesteroled tomorrow. Republicans are convinced this would have ended the war almost immediately and led to Americans driving flying cars over streets paved with gold…if only not for that war mongering FDR leading us into a war Republicans only supported at that time.
Lastly, at the end of the war, Roosevelt negotiated surrender with global terrorists. As House Republican Leader John Boehner declared in a speech at this year’s Republican Principles Retreat and Politician Auction, “Republicans stand firmly against Democrats ever negotiating with terrorists, that’s our job!” (see: Iran Contra and George W. Bush’s Paying of Ransom to Al-Qaeda linked Abu Sayyef in the Philipines in 2002 ).
Republicans have a long history of short memories and an overriding moral stance that what’s right is right…unless a Democrat does it.
