Here We Go Again

It's like déjà vu all over again. From the Christian Science Monitor (via Daily Kos):

Every election cycle, the GOP drags out their faith in an attempt to draw in the Evangelical voter. Despite their rampant unethical behavior, they preach values and decency and they drive their wedge issues all in hopes of garnering the Christian vote. They promise the moon, but as we've seen so many times, they don't deliver. You'd think the Evangelicals would get tired of being used and lied to, but like a battered spouse they come back time after time in support of their abuser.

So as a reminder to those Evangelicals, I would like to offer this partial list of what the Republican party has given us over the last five-plus years.

And how many of these things are benefiting the Evangelicals? How many of these things are in agreement with the teachings of Jesus? Not a single one. It's time the Evangelicals opened their eyes to see that the Republican party is using them the same way they've been using prostitutes at the Watergate hotel. They get what they want and then they move on. Meanwhile, the Evangelicals, much like the prostitutes, wake up sticky, battered and confused. It must be an awful feeling to know that you're not respected the morning after.

I hope the Evangelicals are starting to see through the lies and deceit because I hate to see anyone get used like that. It's so demeaning.
