How do you introduce a young person to our two-party system? Where do you start?
We started with the glaring basics. What life and death topics do the two parties disagree on, ALWAYS and COMPLETELY?
We explained that Democrats support abortion, and that Republicans support the death penalty.
On abortion, Republicans will often yell "It's a child!" or "It is an innocent life!"
On the death penalty, Democrats will yell "It is extreme!" or "Blacks are unfairly convicted!" or "It is inhumane!" or "He could be innocent!"
(What's funny here is, by now, regardless of your political leanings, I've pissed you off! Funny, but not intended!)
Well, Zhukov has a good head on his shoulders (he had been private-schooled up to this point) and this simple review of two top issues was enough to help him share our frustrations with the bed-wetter class that makes up half of this country.
So today it is the Democrats yelling about an Oklahoma execution "gone wrong." The guy is dead, so you must dig deeper to find out what part of "wrong" they are complaining about.
Clayton Lockett via Clash Daily:
The 38-year-old, who was found guilty of shooting a woman and watching his friends bury her alive, was declared unconscious ten minutes after the first of the state’s new three-drug lethal injection combination was administered.Supposedly his vein ruptured and the poisons had to seep into his tissues like guilt rather than course through his veins like hate. Shit happens.
Three minutes later, though, he began breathing heavily, writhing, clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head off the pillow.
Speaking of "shit happens," when an abortion has "gone wrong" it results in a baby being born alive. This was the topic of my last article, posted at American Thinker. Assuming you've been living in a cave these past five years of hope, change, and summers of recovery, you'd be surprised to learn that President Barack Obama actually supported killing these children who survived the abortion procedure. If that sounds like something your tender mind shouldn't read, by all means, crawl back into your cave and don't come out until the next election when you'll be told how smart you are.
There are many out there who want to cloud the differences between the parties, and with many topics they can. But the differences are crystal clear if you stick to the life and death issues. It is the FIRST difference.
Don't let yourselves be fooled, comrades.
