In last Novembers election Oklahoma voted out Gov. Brad Henry (D) for the new governor Mary Fallin(R). Now with republicans in control of Oklahomas House, Senate and governorship they are quickly moving to implement a slew of regressive ideological bills including four bills to redefine conception as the beginning of life (making an embryo a person), a move to allow state funding to be given to churches or religious figures, and a bill to teach creationism as science. http://newsok.com/conservative-ideological-bills-concern-group/article/3...
When given the chance to govern the right proves time and again that they believe government should be used to enforce morality instead of regulating commerce; that laws should be used against individuals but corporations should be given free reign; that they should be more concerned with what happens in the bedroom than the boardroom.
The ideologues on the right live by their own twisted set of "truths" as witnessed daily by viewers of fox "news":
-The earth is flat and you can't convince any repub that it isn't.
-tax cuts for the rich will help the economy.
-More guns are the solution to gun violence.
-Deregulating wall street will keep us from further crashes.
-Bombs are the way to make friends and influence people around the world.
-Supporting dictatorships is the way to promote democracy.
-Cutting social spending will strengthen our society.
-Teaching our children less will better prepare them for the future.
-The way to help the unemployed is to stop paying them unemployment insurance
-Allowing corpirate overlords to spend unlimited funds to influence elections is more honest
-Denying health care to tens of millions of Americans is how to maintain the "best" health care on earth
If you would like to see the repub vision of the future look to Saudi Arabia where the royalty craps in gold toilets and the working poor bust their ass to feed their kids. Look to Haiti where lack of regulation turned a natural disaster into a year of hell. Look to Somalia where guns are everywhere and violence everpresent.
Wake up America.
