Wake Up-Republicans Use Religion To Manipulate You
Last comment by shannalat 1 year ago.

This blog sums it up in a nut shell. Happy reading.

"While there are many ways to manipulate people, religion seems to be the tool most often used to control large masses of people.

"But I believe a long time ago the Republican party identified that religion was going to be their tool to manipulate tens of millions of Americans into supporting economic policies that don’t benefit them. Because that’s exactly what’s happened.

I can’t count how many times I’ve met someone living on some form of government assistance, poor, without health care – who votes Republican. The same Republican party that continues to fight against expanding health care for people like them. The same Republican party that continues to support economic policies which benefit the rich at the detriment of the poor and middle class. The same Republican party that continues to push for deeper cuts to the very same government programs they rely on to survive."

"Basically, the United States could completely implode economically as long as gays couldn’t marry and women were prevented from having abortions.

Oh, and guns. We can’t forget guns. Apparently Jesus would be a huge fan of guns."

Seb-give it a rest. I could go back and fourth with you all day but it's not worth it. Put your view on table and move forward. Information overload is running bloggers away and it consumes your mind body and soul. Also, I just left a workshop about blogger etiquette-they say make your point-respond once than move on..Try it. I plan too.

Information overload I think that psychologist call this chunking. See we read and get all this information and it makes us feel overwhelmed and unable to effectively function. I actually blogged about this (sort of) http://john3corrigan.com/2014/03/05/n...
(oh man when commenting about information overload I pasted a blog post hmm )
but this does exist. This information overload and it is wise to deal with it
