It really doesn't make sense to me why republicans have no respect for ANY leftwing policies

If you insist on voting republican, you should at least educate yourself on policy so you can have a balanced perspective. I think many republicans take government for granted. Their overly emotional philosophy on the role of government blinds them in seeing it realistically and critically.

Doesn't it bother you republicans have no respect for our nation's crumbling infrastructure? How about scientific research to improve policy?

Take consumer protection laws. Don't you think there should be LAWS in place that restrict the amount of lead in paint? How about keeping carcigenics out of our foods and pharmaceuticals? Self regulation is fantasy. Did you know sodium bicarbonate is a cancer causing ingredient in pork products? I guarantee you most Americans don't know that. Corporations save money by using certain ingredients that are harmful to one's health. Some of these ingredients make food taste better for instance. Doesnt that disturb you? How about trans fat? Shoudnt we have LAWS that bar including it in our foods? How about keeping chemicals out of cigarettes to make them even more addictive?

How about credit card companies making critical terms more transparent in their contracts to the average consumer?

Shouldn't there be laws that protect consumers? Just answer the question: yes or no? Do you really think republicans in power care about these issues? Hell no.

How can you not see how powerful and corrupt many corporations are? Remember when Oprah was sued for defamation by the meat industry for simply saying she would never eat a hamburger? Talk about an assault on free speech.

Consumer protection is a leftwing ideology.

Doesn't it disturb you that corporate crime prosecution is so low? Do you really think republicans will do ANYTHING about that? Now granted SOME democrats won't do anything about it either, but at least it can be said this is a progressive issue.

If republicans considered these things, they would consider voting for people like Elizabeth Warren.

My sister is a senior policy analyst for
congress. She works for Paul Ryan. She is amazed how many ignorant people can propose policy. For instance, people push for forcing welfare recipients to take drug tests. Not only does this cost millions of dollars, it is also useless. The actual rate of drug use is statistically very rare among the poor on food stamps.

FACTUAL INFORMATION MATTERS.

Republicans support government only when they agree with it. Otherwise, fuck our air, water, science programs, education and on down the list. Kind of dumb if you ask me.

Conservatism is for some a faith verging on religion. The core of that belief is that populism is evil and poor people are always to blame.

Amusing coming from someone who's threads for the most part are nothing more than attacks and insults against Republicans for not believing as he does. My advice take your own advice and at least educate yourself on policy so you can have a balanced perspective.

Aren't you one of those conservatives that supports raising the minimum wage? Why criticize me bashing republicans if you don't give ANY credit for Obama and other liberals' push for this?

Yet the far left drones continue to push their religious propaganda not connected reality without question or hesitation.

The far left shows once again that the push for higher minimum wage is not for the workers, it is for the tax exempt corporations known as unions, that line the pockets of the far left.

I criticize you for saying republicans are dumb or uneducated for not sharing your or every liberal viewpoint .I will stop doing this when when you put away that broad brush you like to paint people with.

I never said republicans were uneducated. Just answer this question: have you ever given praise to a liberal like Obama for pushing for a raise to minimum wage?

Obama is not a liberal, he is a far left drone like you. Thus proving you are very far to the left.

And that means no regulations and no protection for the people that work. Funny how they demand work but then demand it without protection or rights.

Republicans in power are by and large self interested. That's why they will do nothing about it.

Never. Never will, either. Why would I praise someone for putting people out of work and companies out of business?

You know republicans do too. Government workers lose their jobs because of republican policies. They also cost the economy. The famous gov shut down cost the economy $24 billion and put thousands of people on furlough.

Republican cuts into infrastructure, science and r&d would be like burning hundreds of billions of dollars and flushing the remains down the crapper. Entire projects would be killed off mid cycle.

Cures for cancer = gone
Road and bridge projects = gone
R&d investment for our future = gone

Tell me how this doesn't harm this country.
