Unfortunately true


Pick a Republican pundit. You can safely write the same of any of them.


This is particularly true when it comes to things like 'fetal pain' individuals who are prolife actually believe there is such a thing despite there being no medical data to support it.

Same goes for the term 'sexual orientation' individuals who are progay actually believe there is such a thing despite there being no scientific facts to support such.. Nothing on human genome validates this concept.

This kind of behavior is just emotional beliefs trumping fact-based reality. Any discussions with individuals who have this mental frame work results in their feelings being consistently substituted for data and facts.

IOW's they cannot have a cogent intelligent conversation so they resort to yelling hater, baby killer or homophobe all to shout down and beat down the opposing becomes about vilification of the individual expressing facts they refuse to accept as they do not 'feel' that way.

Basically this is politics of personal destruction, which we see in the media everyday in how they go after democrats and President Obama. They do not attack policy they attack the individual.

It is frightening how beliefs/emotions are ruling the political landscape.

It is OK to have your own opinion, as the saying goes, but you can't have your own set of facts.

However, in order for religion to dominate in the public square, people are being trained to put their beliefs first. This has resulted in the government and politics locally and at state&national level becoming insanely destructive.

No one wants to find common ground based on agreed upon facts. If they did that the BELIEVERS would lose...ergo, they refuse to accept fact and simply argue completely on emotion!!!
