    Are Republicans anti-Constitution?

    "A former Bush administration official broke with Republicans on Tuesday to defend President Obama’s prisoner exchange, arguing that since “the war in Afghanistan is winding down,” the United States would be required to return prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay back to Afghanistan. "

    If the Republicans in the House refuse to fund this procedure--are they anti-American, and anti Constitution?
    And do they hate America, because she stands for Justice? Would they rather have eternal revenge? Are they psychopaths?

    Of course, your question is a rhetorical question.Over 6,000 U.S. military have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over 160,000  civilians  have been killed. These numbers make Ted Bundy look like a harmless choirboy! It is a fitting analogy because mass murder cannot be sanitized with a word like "war". Ted Bundy killed for pure pleasure,the psychopaths in Washington kill for the pleasure of power and money.Thus,I see no marked distinction between the two.  Yes, there are many on both sides of the political fence who fit the definition of a psychopath.

    Along with an ever growing mountain of evidence,the Patriot Act alone, reveals that the Constitution is arbitrarily observed and applied whenever it suits the needs of the ruling elite.The prisoners in Guantanamo are simply pawns.Many may very well be as dangerous as a rattlesnake, but the miscreant politicians in Washington are as dangerous as a Tsunami.

      The reality today is that some in the US no longer believe in government of the people, for the people, by the people. They want a corporation with an executive board and "employees" whose tax dollars end up as corporate profits. Sorry, no can do.

    I don't believe the GOP is anti-Constitution. I believe they are Constitutional manipulators. They love to reinvent history and the Constitution's intent to suit their back room agenda which is always the same: Turn government into a Corporation headed by a handful of the US's wealthiest males and then privatize all branches of government using only our tax dollars. It's easy to take in revenue and call it profit when your business relies solely on tax subsidies in the tens of billions. Remember, it's the House of Representatives who disperse the funds that come from our tax dollars.

    The GOP men are two faced cowards who run to throw anyone in their way under a bus. They consistently outspend the Democrats locally, statewide and nationally on industries they know taxpayers federal dollars must cover. This is the reason for the huge cost of defense..Virginia ranks No. 1 in military industries. More than 60% of all federal penitentiaries are in red states. Building more prisons in these states on the flimsy claim they are "crowded" is how they get nearly $2 for every dollar they pay in federal taxes.

    The Republicans have for the past 4 decades been in endless war mode. They simply cannot envision an end to wars for one reason: Their states live off the profits of war. Then, when it's time to pay the bills, they run to the rest of the states for revenue. To all Republicans, no war means no profit and no way to up the ante in their states. War is their industry. The only problem is they don't pay for it. On the contrary, THEY are paid the most for it.

    The National Security Act goes back as far as the Truman Administration. The president who enhanced it and the Patriot Act was a Republican with vested interests in seeing to it his state and the rest of the red states could keep their citizenry in jobs related to war.

      Not really. My grandfathers salary bought him a house. Mine can't. My grandmother never earned a salary...yet she collected SS til 89 yrs of age. Wonderful. More power to them. Just don't then call other people in need lazy or entitled or bums.

      Yes..Chris..I bought my home at age 19 on a $21,000 salary for $18,500..Tell me something I don't know. The problem with the younger generation is "Champagne appetites on beer pocket books." You want McMansions. We settled for far less. Sour grapes?

    Republicans and Democrats are the same, there is no difference. 99.9% of those in congress are sold out to the global elite. Rush and Glen Beck also are simply controlled opposition.
