LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that is witnessing the once proud and powerful GOP turn itself into messy road kill. It has been a long journey that started with Hoover and has really snowballed here at the end.

They thought the “mandate” they received in 2014 meant they could finally reveal their true colors. They started regulating women’s bodies and educating them about the true meaning of rape. They showed amazing zeal for the unborn fetus, while not giving a flying fuck for the end result of that mandatory full term pregnancy. They nominated a very troubled woman of low intelligence to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. They went totally insane when same sex marriage was legalized. It was against their “religious beliefs” even though “religious beliefs” have nothing to do with government. We have a Constitution for that, and it makes no mention of the Bible much to their chagrin.

Their most recent crop of governors and senators have established a new level of ineptitude. Christie, Walker, Brown, Scott, Perry, Abbott, Jindal, Bentley, McCrory, McConnell, Cruz, have been an embarrassment on a world wide scale. They did not let us down with the coup de gras. Their nominee for president is a reality T.V. show host who selected a White Supremacist to be one of his delegates to their national convention. He is the person representing their party at the highest possible level. Every Republican running for office will be judged by the man at the top of the ticket and the best, the very best they could come up with is Donald Trump.

It is both tragic and hilarious at the same time and heralds the new Age of Liberalism. For that, we say thank you Jesus!
