The GOP gone wild. Is this the America we want?
Is it really "the people's choice" anymore?
Is this the America we want?
There is a disturbing trend in the USA today. It is total disrespect for the US president. This country is becoming the laughing stock of the world.
Has the GOP sunk to a new level of disgust?
Does this represent the true GOP agenda?
It seems to be the rage these days, and it is disgusting, appalling, and frightening, for those of us who cannot, and will not, understand and/or condone this kind of bigotry any more.
What has America become? Our 'diversity' has turned to segregation and hate mongering. The ''equal rights" and "human rights" concepts have turned into " "equal rights for the selective few". That select few seems to be the right wing, white, Christian, heterosexual faction.
These apparent GOP trends are extremely disturbing, and attack the the very foundation of democracy, freedom, and equality. They promote disrespect, hatred, intolerance, and social unrest.
Is this really the direction that Americans want to take for our future?
These attacks on America, democracy, and equal rights are NOT the view of the majority of decent law abiding American citizens. They are reflective of the opposite, and perpetrated by the radical right wing conservatives who would sooner see America destroyed than be allowed to move in the direction of progress and acceptance of diversity as natural part of life.
We cannot allow this country to be taken over by such radicals, or the religions they represent. The war in this country seems to be a war between decency, logic, love and acceptance and the few who promote the opposite points of view.

3. Cruz again raps Obama Health Care Law
In a speech in Ames Iowa, Texas Republican Senator, Ted Cruz again raps Obama health care law. This article personifies the 'out of touch with reality' mentality of the GOP today. This fight to overturn Obama care has gone too far. The GOP has taken this beyond what is right and just for everyone to simply a fight against anything that this president does, just to discredit him. Reversing or discarding this law would harm more people than it will help the GOP image.

Do conservative radical physicians really have the right to go against the AMA
4. California doctor diagnoses man with...
A California doctor diagnosed a man with ‘homosexual behavior’ illness.
It was decided by the American Medical Association, and the Psychiatric Association some 30 + years ago that homosexuality was not a "disease", or a physical or psychological disorder.
This kind of treatment by any physician is nothing more than an exercise in promoting their personal opinions based on their ludicrous religious beliefs. This is totally inappropriate, unacceptable, and unforgivable.

House refusing to vote on immigration bill passed in the Senate
5. House GOP refusing to vote on immigration reform
Do House Republicans have political incentive to back immigration reform?
This story has heart wrenching consequences for millions of American citizens and makes no sense at all.
We all know there is a dire need for sensible immigration reform, but the GOP does not care about the immigrants, or their plight.
The main GOP focus is still on discrediting and obstructing anything that this current administration does to try and solve the most perplexing problems this country faces today. This focus is on winning the 2016 presidential elections and certainly not on doing anything constructive to fix our economic problems of today.
