The recent Republican/teabagger debates on CNN proved one thing, that our country has devolved to the point where potential candidates for an elected office can advocate policies that jeopardize the health and safety of their fellow Americans without being booed off the stage. As a matter of fact, when Ron Paul was about to answer Wolf Blitzer's question about letting a hypothetical 20 year old accident victim who is in a coma die because he is uninsured, he was preempted by some knuckle dragging teabaggers in the audience who shouted “YEAH!”
Due to all the bogus political drama, Americans are at a moral crossroads. We have to decide if the Republicans, the teabaggers and their “free” market/trickle down dogma represents patriotic ideals or unbridled corporate greed that has been distilled into a political philosophy. We have to decide if we want to scrap government programs that protect public health, safety and the survival of American families just because the concept of safety nets doesn't mesh with an ideology that is corporate sponsored and mainly benefits the rich. Lastly, working people have to decide if they want to support an ideology that is toxic to their well being, the future of their families and America's future or zealously defend the social advancements of the past seventy years that, up until the bogus teabag movement was started, have withstood the test of time!
