CONFESSIONS OF A FORMER REPUBLICROID ZOMBIE
Republicroid Zombieism � It is real, it is dangerous, and it has left millions of otherwise intelligent Americans stumbling through life hopelessly trapped in a state of delusion and denial. This insidious virus can creep up on the unsuspecting so slowly that most do not even realize they have been stricken. But soon after the infection sets in, words begin to lose all meaning - death is life, war is peace, lies are truth, stealing is giving, and slavery is freedom.
It can happen to anyone. I know, because I am a former Republicroid Zombie.
Republicroid Zombies can often be difficult to detect, because unlike those infected by the Democroid strain of the virus, most can carry on somewhat normal lives. They have families, hold down jobs, and often seem able to function on their own. But just beneath the facade, the virus is eating away at its victim�s brains, leaving them unable to form so much as a single independent opinion until commands are received from Fox �News� or some other Republicroid propaganda source.
It is painful, and a little embarrassing, to look back and realize that I was in a Republicroid trance-like state for nearly two decades. The high point, or low point, came shortly after the �Republican Revolution of 1994.� Those were heady times, and I was a believer. The Republicans were fresh off an election victory, with some very hard fought political clout at their disposal � and they promised to wield it like a club.
Yes, we were on a tear. We were finally going to stuff those evil Democrats in such a small box they wouldn�t see the light of day for a generation. We were going to take back this country by making our government obey the law for a change � which would dramatically trim federal spending and put an end to federal thievery and income redistribution.
We were going to shut down the Departments of Education, HHS, Agriculture, IRS, BATF, and any other destructive agency we could get our hands on. We would de-fund Planned Parenthood, PBS and the �arts.� The serial wars would end after we got out of the United Nations and shut down our participation in the �New World Order.�
Finally, and most importantly, we were confident that an emboldened �pro-life� Republican majority in Congress would act quickly to stop the abortion holocaust. We would finally avenge the millions of children who had been ground to a pulp by America�s legalized child-killing industry.
Little did we know that something very bad was happening on the way to the victory parade.
Although I did not know it at the time, my recovery began about 100 microseconds into Newt Gingrich�s �first 100 days� of the �Contract With America.� It was quite a remarkable betrayal, looking back. It seemed like the very instant the Republicans realized they had control of the House and the Senate was when the wheels started coming off the wagon that brought them to the victory. It became obvious they were so enamored with this newfound power that they would be willing to do absolutely anything to keep it.
It also became clear that the Democroid Zombies were never the real problem.
While many of us were still celebrating the start of the �revolution,� our enemies wasted no time in solidifying their control over the new members of Congress. They fiddled around with Monica while Clinton armed the Chinese with our latest missile guidance technologies. They talked of fiscal responsibility while they proposed budgets that greatly increased the expansion and intrusion of the federal government. They sat on their hands while 3,800 innocent children were murdered every single day.
Appeasement after appeasement, it soon became apparent that all we did was trade one gang of life-hating, big government-loving communists for a different one.
The past eleven years of Republican rule have been an absolute disaster for our economy, our freedom and our country. The destruction really began to accelerate once the Republicans consolidated their control of the Presidency along with both houses of Congress.
The Republican legacy since 1995 is now well known, but it bears repeating. In just eleven short years:
Any person with even half a brain can look at the above and see that a moral and fiscal tsunami is quickly heading toward our shores. Yet, Republicroid Zombies can look at those same statistics and claim that since �conservatives� are running our government, everything must be OK. It is unbelievable.
A cure for Republicroid Zombieism does not look too promising. At this point, all we can do is keep telling the truth - while we get to enjoy our front row seat as we witness this once great nation implode on itself. We can also hope that enough of us are alive after the collapse to sift through the rubble and help put the pieces back together.
Republicroid Zombieism � it is real, it is deadly, and it is sucking the very lifeblood out of our Republic.
