Maybe it's because I live in Chicago, known for its liberal blue collar standpoint, but I just don't know any Republicans that are far right, certainly not in the social sense. Most are fiscally conservative and not strictly "religious right" at all. This must be coming from the bible belt states. Perhaps they have the most lobbyists? Why does their horn blow louder?

Perhaps, but it's not hard to turn on the religious aspect of conservatism that blinds them all to reason - and that's how they always manage to get their target audience, by drinking that neoconservative, Jesus flavored Kool-Aid.

It's so far from the experience of Jesus that I have, that I sometimes think they are thinking of Jesus H. Schultz or someone other than the man depicted in the bible, who had loving kind ideas and guidelines to follow to be an enlightened peaceful person.

Where the fuck did all this religious sludge come into play, and why did they pick the political arena in which to dump it?

BAHHH! And by that I mean frikken sheep!

That would be Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, & the Moral Majority. With lots of help (read: fearmongering, propaganda, and outrageous lies) from the Christian Coalition, the Eagle Forum, Focus On The Family, American Family Association, and the Family Research Council for starters.

Why? Because those are the easiest tactics to use to froth up the fundies, who in turn froth up the fence sitters, who in droves make up the masses of stupid people who buy in to all the rhetoric. Put simply, because this majority of people is blind to reason and base logic, and are the enemies of rational thought, democracy, and the Constitution. And with Jesus on THEIR side, there is no argument they cannot somehow manage to elude and still find themselves garnering support with their bretheren. Their aim is to make us a Christian nation.

In short, because there are more of them (stupid people) than us. Look no further for evidence of this than the fact that GWB has been elected not once - but twice. Need more?

Oy vey. Look what they've done to my song, ma.

They've made a mockery of something sacred. Think about these kinds of coalitions existing in the name of the Dalai Lama or Buddha, people who have existed to bring about love, peace, and compassion into the world. It's ridiculous, twisted, and sad.
