REASON V. RELIGION- Snobs Frame the Debate

REASON V. RELIGION

we can be RIGHT but it does us no good if we don't WIN. we need PRAGMATIC LEADERSHIP.


We’ve allowed them to expose the weakness of our leadership- true snobbery. The hierarchy of the democratic leadership truly believes that they are smarter than the American people, that they ‘know’ what is best- paternalism at its most nauseating. The democratic leadership acts like the oldest kid in the family- the one that the other kids wish they could catch doing something, ANYTHING, wrong. We’ve become despicable, the annoying smart-ass group of folks who ignore their base (because they are ignorant), who ignore the majority of Americans on the issue of religion (because they are ignorant), who ignore the proven political wisdom of the African-american community (because they are ignorant), who ignore the patriotic pride and nationalism of a nation that is still young (because they are ignorant),….. in short- a party that says ‘I know better than you what is good for you.’ I submit to you that any political movement that ignores those whom it purports to represent IS IGNORANT BY DEFINITION.

This ain’t brain science! We don’t have to prove that Christ is dead, that evolution is true, that gays are all good parents, that blacks are noble, that women are men,’ that children are better off being raised ‘by a villiage…’

We only have to show that we are on the side of the people we purport to represent.

It IS democracy, RIGHT? This means that we must convince a majority of the represented that we UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS. As long as we think they are too stupid to know what is best for them, we are not really proponents of DEMOCRACY.

people see through phoney baloney. they might not be able to articulate why, but they really just didn't like john kerry. they knew that bush is a bumbling idiot, but they also knew john kerry thinks he's better than them. it came through loud and clear. and nobody like somebody who thinks they are stupid. nobody likes someone who makes them feel inferior. nobody likes a SNOB.

It is truly sad when the group of folks who think we best represent their beliefs are CANADIANS (not that there’s anything wrong with being Canadian EXCEPT THEY CAN’T VOTE). Could we just TRY to be a bit more pragmatic?

As long as we allow a few greedy republicans to steal Jesus for political reasons, we will never win another election. This is about REALITY- about the heart and soul of America- the heart and soul of MANKIND- about what people think, how they feel, and what they [i]want[/i] to believe.

we could change what they believe, but it is impossible to change what they WANT to believe.

For 10,000 years of recorded history, for some reason mankind has CHOSEN to believe in a higher power. Most people choose to believe that there’ a “higher” purpose to this thing called life. As long as we demand that they accept that their life is pointless and futile, that nothing matters in the long run, that when they die they rot and it all ends there- we will lose. it runs contrary to the human spirit.

it is fools gold.

so we are smarter. lots of good it does us and the rest of the world when we allow republicans to exploit our snobbery, to make themselves appear more passionate.
