This is today’s Republican Party.
Oh no it isn’t you say. You’re really just the normal, everyday people like those that voted for Ronald Reagan. Even Democrats voted for Ronald Reagan.
A Republican candidate for a Florida House seat, Joshua Black IS the face of today’s Republican Party.
You ‘normal. everyday’ people have sat on the sidelines for 3 years. Too cowardly to stand up to the fringe, the tea party, because they will say your not a ‘real’ American.
A ‘real’ American doesn’t call those that disagree with him ccommies (even though Newt Gingrich in 1995 suggested that).
A ‘real’ American doesn’t want the destruction of our political process regardless of how bad it seems at times.
A ‘real’ American doesn’t want the destruction of our government agencies, department by department, defunding, nullifing until agencies are crippled, hurting and unable to provide even basic services to Americans in need.
A ‘real’ American doesn’t call for the hanging of our President.
But ‘real’ Americans would stand up and say ‘Enough is Enough’.
ST. PETERSBURG — ‘As Americans honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, a Republican candidate for Florida House District 68 said President Barack Obama should be hanged for war crimes’.
“I’m past impeachment,” Joshua Black wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to arrest and hang him high.”
‘The tweet caught the attention of Chris Latvala, a Republican candidate for House District 67’.
“You aren’t seriously calling for the killing of Obama are you?” Latvala replied. “I know you are crazy but good heavens. U R an embarrassment.”
‘Latvala added: “I make it my business when so called GOP candidates become an embarrassment to my beloved party.”
‘Black, 31, of Pinellas Park moved to Florida in 2007 after practicing street evangelism in St. Louis and works as a taxi driver. According to his campaign website, Black entered politics in 2012 when he tried influencing the presidential primary’.
‘The website says: “Republicans have a serious communication problem. Everything we say sounds like spears.”
‘Hours after the tweet, Black defended his comment. Obama should be held responsible for ordering a drone strike that killed a U.S. citizen overseas, he said’.
“He should be executed for treason,” Black said. “I think the appropriate punishment is death. They killed Benedict Arnold. (Obama) shouldn’t be allowed to kill Americans without a trial.”
‘The political newcomer said he doesn’t fear U.S. Secret Service agents showing up on his doorstep. Many voters might agree with his position, he said, adding: “I guess they’re going to call me a racist now.”
‘After talking to a reporter, Black posted a lengthy message to supporters on Facebook’.
“I make no apologies for saying that the President is not above the People. If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he.”

‘The sun still rises in the east and the force of gravity still applies’.
‘And when they want to sound tough on Iran, would-be Republican presidential candidates still cite Ronald Reagan as their role model’.
‘So following in the footsteps of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, Texas Senator Ted Cruz tweeted a picture of Ronald Reagan’s 1981 inauguration 33 years ago and declared, “Now there is a man who knew how to deal with the Iranians.”
‘Unfortunately for Cruz and his ilk, President Ronald Reagan dealt with the Iranians all right, by sending them a cake, a Bible and American weapons’.
Ronald Reagan on March 4, 1987 :
“A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that’s true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. As the Tower board reported, what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages.”

So on your security camera, your girlfriend tells you she saw a guy jumping your fence and leaving your yard.
You are in fear of your life. Because a guy jumped your fence and left your yard.
So after the guy is already gone, you get your gun, climb over the fence are go after him because.…(wait for it) you’re standing your ground.
‘On Thursday, an Orlando man shot and killed a 21-year-old who was fleeing his yard’.
‘But Claudius Smith said he feared he was a burglar, followed him over the fence to a neighboring apartment complex, where he shot him after he said he felt threatened, according to a confession documented in an Orlando Police Department report’.
‘Smith even said he feared victim Ricardo Sanes was armed “because his pants were falling down” and his hands were in his hoodie pockets, according to a report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel’.
‘Now, questions are emerging about whether Smith will also invoke the state’s Stand Your Ground law’.
‘According to statements by Smith’s girlfriend, Angela Kemraj, to police, the incident started when she saw a man in the yard on surveillance cameras and reported it to Smith’.
‘She said they saw the individual in dark clothes and a hoodie leaving their yard without anything in his hands, and climbing over the fence to a neighboring apartment complex’.
‘Smith then left the apartment and climbed over the fence’.
‘Two minutes later, Kemraj said she heard gunshots’.
‘Soon after, Smith came back to the apartment and said Sanes tried to rob him, without mentioning the shooting’.
‘During initial police questioning, Smith later denied knowledge about the shooting, and only later confessed, claiming he shot in self-defense’.
‘Smith has been charged with second-degree murder’.

Rank and file Republicans have become too cowardly to stand up to these idiots.
So this is the Republican Party.
Dumbing down America.
‘Missouri Republicans have drafted a bill that would allow parents to pull their children from science classes that are teaching the theory of evolution’.
‘According to the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), Missouri’s House Bill 1472 would effectively “eviscerate” the teaching of biology in the state’.
‘HB 1472 is sponsored by Republican state Reps. Rick Brattin and Andy Koenig, who have authored pro-religion, anti-science legislation before, according to the NSCE’.
‘The two conservatives have attempted to craft a number of bills that would order teachers in all public learning institutions — including colleges and junior colleges — to give “equal time” to the religious creationist theory of Intelligent Design. None of those measures have been successful’.

And because it was on FOX news and Bill O’Reilly said it….Millions of people accept it as fact.
‘Pastor Robert Jeffress sat down with Bill O’Reilly Monday night to argue that President Obama is laying the groundwork for the rise of the Anti-Christ because he is “conditioning” people to rely on government support’.
‘He said there will be a “future world dictator before Christ returns who’s going to usurp people’s personal rights, and “change God’s laws… without any opposition” so “people will have been conditioned long before the Antichrist comes to accept government overreach, and that’s what you’re seeing with President Obama.”
‘He said, “I’m not saying President Obama is the Anti-Christ. In fact, I’m sure he’s not, because the Anti-Christ is going to have higher poll numbers.”
‘He argued that in addition to Obamacare creating a culture of dependency, Obama is sowing the seeds for the Anti-Christ with the contraception mandate and “abortion-inducing drugs,” as well as the “redefinition of marriage.”
‘He argued that gay marriage is simply a “counterfeit” of real marriage, and “whenever you say marriage is whatever you want it to be… people say why bother getting married at all.”
